A crisp and engaging drama.

Story & Narration
Technical Aspects & Music

After impressing with his short films which have over shined his feature outings, director Sarjun comes to the fore with an engaging film in Blood Money. The script written by Sankar Doss takes form in an intriguing fashion thanks to Sarjun’s neat presentation, which leaves not much breath for the story to take a rest, and does a good job of always taking the narrative forward and capping it within 90 minutes.

Blood Money opens with us being introduced to Kaliappan and Anjaiyya, two brothers who are caught up in Kuwait after committing a murder. But even after producing the ‘blood money’, the brothers are not released from the country. As this news resurfaces after years, a couple of investigative journalists at Chennai try to make this matter big and make a difference.

At a runtime of just 90 minutes, Blood Money works out as a straightforward drama that has its emotional beats in the right place and does not waste much time introducing unnecessary elements which will slow down the pace of the film.

What’s most interesting about the film is the fact about how such a tough case is cracked in a mostly believable fashion thanks to the neat narrative and the elements that bind together very nicely in the film structure.

Priya Bhavani Shankar delivers a very convincing performance as the lead, and it’s nice to see her real told the real transformation here. The actress has an emotional role to play that is driven by some style and she is able to pull it off very convincingly and does not do any harm to the overall value of the script. Shirish is of good support to the actress and even though he might not have great dialogues or the best scenes, he is happy to play second fiddle to the actress and is a good addition to the cast on the whole. The rest of the cast which includes name such as Kishore, Subbu Panchu and others are impressive fits to the film and there are not many bad calls when it comes to the casting of Blood Money.

The film’s technicalities are neat and with the help of them, Sarjun KM manages to narrate a very nice and likeable story in Blood Money. Blood Money Movie Review by Siddarth Srinivas
