7 Khoon Maaf

I wanted to write about this movie, last friday when I had the misfortune to see it in its first day of release.But somehow never got around to it

Saw it in Escape Cinemas in the Express Avenue mall. The theater is awesome but the popcorn and other foodies are less than mediocre (though you would not know it by the amount they charge for them). One regular popcorn and coke cost more than the ticket.

7 Khoon Maaf is touted as a black comedy where Susanna kills her 6 husbands and the sathva khoon tho audience ki hothi hai and the joke is on  us :-(

I didnt realise the father in the very end was Ruskin bond, having never seen him before.
But I was sorry that he has given his approval to the way the movie has been taken, by actually acting in it.

By the third khoon, the whole thing starts getting tedious and every one is wondering why she does not just divorce them. (Though a kind of explanation is given that she is stopping these guys from spoiling any more lives or some such)

The two reasons we sat through the whole movie, when a lovely mall full of shops were beckoning us was.
1) We wanted to know who were her other husbands
2) The cost of the tickets and food.

The best thing about our foray into 7 khoon maaf was that we had a good time at the mall.

If you really want to see this movie, wait a couple of months and you can see it for free in the Colors channel.
