The new song ‘Badla’ from the film BLACKMAIL has been unveiled today. In the video we see Irrfan Khan wielding a sledgehammer and breaking down walls akin to Frank Castle in the pilot episode of PUNISHER. The song also shows Irrfan tearing pillows and running towards a wall of bars and looking at his wife with another man in bed.
Sung by Amit Trivedi and DIVINE it gives a power statement with angry rap verses which adds to the energetic backing track, though the lyrics are a bit questionable but DIVINE delivers them with sublime flow which makes you want to listen to the song repeatedly.
It’s nice to see Irrfan Khan healthy in the video after his recent news broke out that he has been diagnosed with NeuroEndocrine Tumour which he revealed on his Twitter profile.
The video also has a few key moments of the film, which makes us eager for the film to arrive. We see Irrfan Khan being chased by another man and also his wife being blackmailed via an email and then dropping the ransom in a dumpster which later gets picked by Irrfan, it seems that the penguin trashcan will be a key prop in the film.
The film centres on Irrfan Khan finding out about an affair his wife has with another man and then blackmailing them while falling down the spiral and finding himself stuck in the web of deceit which he weaves himself.
Produced by T-Series’ Bhushan Kumar and RDP Motion Pictures’ Abhinay Deo (DELHI BELLY fame), who has directed it, BLACKMAIL releases on 6th April 2018.
