Saat Khoon Maaf failed to pick up after sunday.. It did slightly better in 5 metro cities.. Additionaly first weekend business was just about okay in Cities like Ahmedabad, Surat, Indore and Pune amoung others. Saat Khoon Maaf performed poorly in smaller centers... Producers will still make some profit with the sale of music and satellite rights But Saat Khoon Maaf might be a losing affair for some distributors...
Saat Khoon Maaf (7 Khoon Maaf) registers an Average opening at Multiplexes Box Office of metro cities. Smaller Centers are below Average. Single screens are also low at around 30-35 %... Weekend Saat Khoon Maaf Box Office Turnout may get tough competition from Cricket World Cup! Check Back this space for updates...
Good Things First -> Saat Khoon Maaf is technically very strong movie. First half is compelling wherin colors, shades and set up is absolutely beautiful as it was expected from a Vishal Bhardwaj Film.
Saat Khoon Maaf will be liked by those movie lovers who are truly looking for a "Different" film. After watching "7 Khoon Maaf" Those viewers should feel better who always complained about the lack of variety in Bollywood films, or Indian Directors' unwillingness to explore new subjects and make Hollywood like films on dark crime related themes.
Some Disappointments Here --> Saat Khoon Maaf was interesting, or atleast OK untill interval but no one knows why it's sort of messed up in last 15-20 minutes or so... It ended almost abruptly where people were expecting something stunning to happen.
Where viewers wonder what's going on???? --> Priyanka Chopra plays the character of a sensual and broad minded woman "Susanna" in Saat Khoon Maaf. It's hard to understand that, while marrying Nicolai Vronsky (Aleksandr Dyachenko), who looks very much like a Middle Aged man, (and a foreigner too!) Sussana had "assumed" him to be a Virgin(!) or unmarried man, and after finding out he is already married, she is "shocked" and plans to kill him! In normal case, As her image of a sharp minded woman is created in viewers mind upto interval, She Should have anticipated this thing about a middle aged foreginer and should not have made that much issue out of this. Even if she didn't anticipate this (That surprises viewers) She could have simply filed for a divorce and moved on. Or else, she should have been shown as a psycho from the start of the movie.
Let us also end this Review as Abruptly as this film with our final words ----- > Saat Khoon Maaf is worth a one time watch as it has great performance from Priyanka Chopra. Watching this movie is a good and different experience.
