NYT Screws 7 Khoon Maaf; Blood on the Floor

The New York Times has raped 7 Khoon Maaf so badly that there’s blood all over the floor.

Folks, if we’ve said it once, we’ve said it a million times, Priyanka Chopra can’t act.

And high time, she stops her gruesome torture of Bollywood fans and settles down to producing li’l Priyankas and Priyans.

Enjoy the excerpt of NYT Review of 7 Khoon Maaf below:

“7 Khoon Maaf,” a meandering black widow tale…floats around, ungrounded in anything like emotional reality.

“7 Khoon Maaf” never seems more than a trifle. That’s mostly because Susanna makes little claim on our sympathies. She’s more conceit than character, and Ms. Chopra…can’t make her cohere.

The film, too, doesn’t really cohere. Full of churches, omens and crucifixes, it wanders right into a Christian ending that is much like the rest of the movie: clever, silly and skillful, but not very satisfying.

The Times is hardly the only to pour scorn on 7 Khoon Maaf.

Here is Reuters India dripping acid on the movie:

In what is his weakest film yet, Bhardwaj takes the tantalising prospect of a “black widow”, and turns it into a haphazard story of a woman who seems to have a fetish for murdering her husbands, even when just leaving them would have been enough…..There is not much action and the murders get repetitive, especially because you know they are all going to die in the end. In fact, the last one seems hurriedly inserted just to make up the right number.[Priyanka Chopra’s] face in the last few scenes looks like a wall with peeling paint.

    vishal bharadwaj, don’t do the same mistake which was done by mani ratnam who lost his golden touch by casting abhishek bachchan in all his recent movies,so mr.bharadwaj please don’t continue with priyanka chopra,

    Aye, that’s the spirit!

    Another million bold voices like yours and Priyanka Chopra can be consigned to the trash bin of Bollywood. 🙂

      brilliant directors like bharadwaj and mani ratnam in thier initial movies were made to get both critical and commercial success,but due to these so called stars ruined there initially critical success later they ruined there commercial success also.

    Given Priyanka Chopra’s past pitiful record, we’ll wait for it to hit Netflix.
