7 Khoon Maaf Movie Review by Movie Critics
Taran Adarsh (BollywoodHungama.com) 3/5
7 Khoon Maaf will meet with diverse reactions – some will fancy it, while some will abhor it. The film will appeal more to the critics/columnists and the festival circuit. However, it is not the kind of cinema that will set the box-office ablaze. Ideally, I would’ve given a two star rating for this film, but I am going ahead with an extra star for Priyanka Chopra’s sterling performance!
Nikhat Kazmi (The Times of India) 4.5/5
Serious, sensitive and stirring, 7 Khoon Maaf is a whole new cinematic experience. Watch how Indian cinema is metamorphosing into something more substantial and glocal.
Rajeev Masand (CNN-IBN) 2/5
The highlight of this film is that excellent ‘Darling’ number. The rest is just a blur.
Anupama Chopra (NDTVMovies.com) 2.5/5
This is a tough story to pull off and despite the voluminous talent on display here – the film stumbles and fumbles.
Blessy Chettiar (DNA India) 3.5/5
All in all, no words can fully express the wicked experience of 7 Khoon Maaf. Go catch it for some ‘bloody’ good performances and a great storyline.
Raja Sen (Rediff) 2/5
A bloated film that plods sluggishly along, a film that doesn’t connect either emotionally or sensually
Mayank Shekhar (Hindustan Times) 3/5
I know, the next time you miss your husband: you’d unlock the gun. Reload the bullets. Aim again! Sorry for that poor Internet joke. But yeah, you needn’t miss this partly captivating movie either.
Shubhra Gupta (Indian Express) 3/5
7 Khoon Maaf lives up to its premise for most of the film, before it pulls up short, well ahead of a satisfactory conclusion.
Kaveree Bamzai (India Today) 3/5
Pity then that the film is a series of one night stands. What we wanted from the operatic Bharadwaj was an affair to remember.
Noyon Jyoti Parasara (NowRunning.com) 3/5
7 Khoon Maaf could leave you loaded with thoughts and doubts. It is brooding and dark. But there are far too many good things in the film to leave you unsatisfied.
Pankaj Sabnani (Glamsham.com) 3/5
A captivating story and excellent performances make 7 KHOON MAAF a bloody good film. Make sure you attend the weddings.
Karan Bhardwaj (The Statesman) 4/5
The film is recommended to those who have the capacity to bear a high-pressure film, something different from contemporary cinema.
Gaurav Malani (The Times of India) 4/5
A different, daring and darling attempt, 7 Khoon Maaf is killer stuff. Do not miss!
Sonia Chopra (Sify Movies) 3.5/5
7 Khoon Maaf gets macabre at several times, and might prove a difficult watch for some. But for others sporting enough to sample a new cinematic experience, there are several delights. It’s Dark, delicious, daring!
Khalid Mohamed (PassionForCinema.com) 2/5
Sorry, however valiantly you try to connect with this saat-saat, it’s a lost cause. Is it a night-black comedy? A kill dil? A serial murder fest? A saga about a wronged woman who launches into a sado-masochistic spree? Or gee, is it just a tale full of sound and fury signifying nothing?
Komal Nahta (KoiMoi.com) 1.5/5
The film becomes monotonous after a point of time because the title and the graph of the story keep nothing in the drama as a surprise element. To make matters worse, the pace of some portions of the drama is very slow and boring. Otherwise also, it is a depressing tale of a woman who doesn’t win the viewers’ sympathy.
K.K Rai (Stardust India) 2/5
Priyanka Chopra has given a superb performance in the character of Susanna. But the film is dark and hardly entertains. The film seems to be aimed at festival circuit rather than at the audiences who go looking for entertainment in the movies.
Sukanya Venkatraghavan (Filmfare) 3/5
Susannah’s quest for love and belonging is covered in a trail of blood. But where the film could have been deliciously dark, mad and off the rails, it ends up being just a disappointing above average weekend watch. Our hopes for a masterpiece of a film have just been done to death. Pity.
