Are you looking for entertainment or a good cinematic experience? This question should be answered first if one is to judge and rate 7 Khoon Maaf. The movie is not for entertainment seekers. It has a dark and mysterious aura around it amidst its shadowy and dim backdrop. The movie depicts a woman’s agony who is in search of true love but ends up getting pain again and again.
In her quest to attain the love of her life Susanna (Priyanka Chopra) ends up entering into all wrong relationships and again to get rid of her husbands she tries all wicked methods. The protagonist of the movie played by Priyanka is a strong woman who has a tender heart which seeks love and she gets married to seven different people looking for love but murders them when she finds none.
Vishal Bhardwaj made this movie which is based on a short story by Ruskin Bond. It’s a dark movie which deals with revenge, quest, hatred and crime. It narrates the tale of a soul which is tortured and battered to the extent that it is forced to take revenge.
Once Susanna realizes that there is nothing more to expect from the relationship, she devices weird ways to kill her husbands that can be either using a snake or guns. But, the strangeness of the story is that even though Susanna is a dark character, but, she is not the hated one. Her character makes the audience feel that she is doing the right thing by killing her bad husbands.
Her character though the wrong one, is beautifully portrayed as the one who is wronged instead. Priyanka Chopra has given an outstanding performance and her role in the movie is definitely going to gain her critical acclaims and accolades. Apart from her, though most of the characters have done their parts perfectly, but, Neil Nitin Mukesh and Irrfan Khan need special reference. The music of the movie also goes well with the story and especially the Darrrling number is worth mentioning.
It’s in total a different experience and an exceptional movie.
