Meanwhile, Blackmail has got a thumbs up from the critics. SpotboyE editor Vickey Lalwani gave the film a four-star rating. In his review he wrote, "It has Irrfan Khan whose every scene brought a lump in the throat. This man MUST recover and come back from London at any cost. Are you up there, your Highness? Stellar performance, his nonchalant manner of saying things, and at times not saying anything but yet saying it all continues in his inimitable style--- and in fact, is the spine of this Delhi Belly director Abhinay Deo's black comedy."
