Here is a daringly dark movie by the director Vishal Bharadwaj who has given us dark tragedies like Maqbool, Omkara. This one like his earlier movie Blue Umbrella is an adaptation of a Ruskin Bond story ´Susanna´s Seven Husbands´ but while the earlier one was a simple tale this one is very complex psychology that has to be deciphered through the characters that come across.
Acted really well by most actors that took part, specifically by Priyanka Chopra holding the limelight this film needs applause only for the gut of the director to pick a story in which there is one murder after another and mostly it’s predictable and try to make it as a compelling one. (He tried only, did he succeed, is still a question, nevertheless he tried).
You know the end result it shall be a murder of husband´s by a woman because they are not nice to her and in what way makes the only difference. Surely at interval, most would have left the theatre coz you seem to know everything that shall happen. But I watched completely in one go and was pretty satisfied at the end.
I can appreciate the attempt but yes, this story was far more predictable than thought of.
A movie that can be watched surely but just for once. Rating: 2/5
