Hindustan Times
Highlight Story

Hours before the film releases and a day before the reviews appear, here’s our take on what you can expect from this week’s release(s)…

Director
Vishal S Mahadkar (Debut director)
He was an assistant director (AD) on Kalyug (2005), the first AD on Woh Lamhe (2006), chief AD on Awarapan (2007) and associate director on Raaz: The Mystery Continues (2009). All films are Bhatt productions.

Music
Jeet Ganguly, Pranay, Sangeet, Sidharath Haldipur
Bhatt films are known for their music. Mustafa Zahid’s voice is the discovery in this album.

Controversies/ stunts
Some ‘bold’ scenes starring Khemu and Canadian model Mia Uyeda were mysteriously leaked online and into our mailboxes from an email id that belongs to the... film’s PR firm! Whoops.

Marketing/hype
No hype. If it matters, Khemu’s girlfriend Soha Ali Khan recently got a flat from her mother Sharmila Tagore.

Our assessment
Couple absconds. Good boy gets lured into bad diamond mafia ‘bijness’ and hot vamp’s pants. Once sweetheart and now ignored housewife gazes into oblivion from her fancy bungalow’s balcony. She leaves. Realisation dawns. Pakistani singer croons. Action sequence kicks in. Pakistani singer continues to croon, slowly this time. End credits roll. Not much on offer here, or so the promos reveal.

For the final verdict, look out for Anupama Chopra’s review tomorrow in the Watch & Listen page of Hindustan Times’ Do! section.
Film: Blood Money
Cast: Kunal Khemu (last acted in Golmaal 3) and Amrita Puri (supporting role in Aisha)
Storyline: A couple absconds to Cape Town after their parents object to their affair. In an attempt to prove his worth, the boy gets involved in a series of tacky looking incidents in the diamond business.
