Blackmail is a 2005 Hindi action thriller film directed by Anil Devgan, which stars Ajay Devgan, Sunil Shetty and Priyanka Chopra in lead roles.[1] The film is inspired from the 1996 Hollywood film Ransom.[2]


Inspector Abhay Rathod (Sunil Shetty) is an honest and diligent Police Inspector employed with Bombay Police. He was assigned the case of racketeer and criminal don, Shekhar Mohan (Ajay Devgan). Abhay successfully entraps and arrests him, and has him sentenced to a long jail term. Years later, Abhay is now the Assistant Commissioner of Police; is a happy family man with his wife (Priyanka Chopra) and son Chirag (Parth Dave) and Shekhar Mohan has completed his jail term and is looking to seek vengeance against Abhay. He does so by kidnapping Chirag and taking him along with him. The object for the kidnap was to trace his lost son, whose information he feels, is with Abhay. After several attempts to get the answer, finally Shekhar tricks Abhay, making him feel that he has killed Chirag. Abhay's wife, feeling Chirag is killed, informs Shekhar that Chirag is his son. Shekhar, is now wonder struck and tries to get Chirag's affection and love. Shekhar finds out that Chirag loves racing and takes him on various race courses where the child is thrilled to watch fast sport cars, and soon starts a friendship with "Uncle" Shekhar. But with Abhay and the police closing in fast, will Shekhar and Chirag be able to maintain their friendship?
