Saat khoon maaf is a thriller, drama and a black comedy film. The story is based on Ruskin Bond’s novel ‘Susanna’s seven husbands. Susanna’s husbands [on reel] Naseeruddin Shah, Neil Nitin Mukesh, John Abraham, Anu Kapoor, Irfan Khan, Vivan Shah (son of Naseeruddin Shah) and the actor from Russia Aleksandr Dyachenko.

Vivan Shah (son of Naseeruddin Shah) is in awe with Priyanka and she gets him educated. He has a soft corner for Priyanka.[Sussana]

Life can be mean to some and they have to relish bad taste in their relationships. So in order to get rid of the unusual relationship and find solace in life Sussana kills her husband’s cleverly by not really committing the murder. Well! The murders of these hubby’s are meticulously managed by Priyanka and her loyal servants. But when she kills the Russian hubby it becomes a little difficult for Susanna to escape. But with the entry of Anu Kapoor who is clean bowled by the beauty of Susanna, helps her get rid of the cold blooded murder. Now wife murdering the husband’s may sound treacherous. But why Sussana decides to kill them forms the crux of the story?

Director Vishal Bhardwaj has intelligently painted the tale on the celluloid. Painting the novel on to the screen, nonetheless, becomes a difficult job. However he has been true to his craftsmanship. Showing older Priyanka and convincing her to look so real must have been so tough but this has surely enabled him to portray her character so very truly. Vishal has done justice to all his male characters. A brilliant job indeed!

Performances of all the actors however is praiseworthy but nothing much to vouch for. John as a druggist has done justice to his character. Naseer was as usual meticulous in his bong character. Irfan performed his usual self nothing great. But the man who remained in the” Not Smooching Controversy was brilliant. Yeah! You guessed rightly Anu Kapoor performed so very exuberantly that his performances will surely leave an undying impression on the audiences. Vivan has ample of potentials. He surely inherits it from both his father and mother. He was excellent in his performances. Vivan as a beginner deserves a pat on his back. Last but not the least Priyanka Chopra enacted well. Her mind blowing performances both as beauty and the beast will kill the audiences

Music: Music is wonderful and the sexy peppy number “Darling… which is already a rave amongst one and all will be liked by the audiences.

Editing: The fast paced editing has added colors to the film However towards the end few scenes could be chopped off to make the film crisper. Cinematography with proper lightings brings the sequences alive.

Flaws: the film could be shorter towards the climax. SKM targets class and International audiences. Minus bollywood ishtyle filmy masala which could restrict the aam junta from coming to the box office windows.

All in all SKM to Priyanka… But Y… for this….. You definitely need to watch the flick at least once.
