Bharadwaj’s latest movie 7 Khoon Maaf is a thriller based on Ruskin Bond’s famous short story Susanna’s Seven Husbands. The film is produced by Ronnie Screwvala and Vishal Bhardwaj. UTV Motion Pictures and VB Pictures Pvt. Ltd will be the banner under which the movie would be released on February 18, 2011.
7 Khoon Maaf revolves around an Anglo-Indian woman named Susanna, played by Priyanka Chopra, and her decision to go on a rampage and murder all her seven husbands, one at a time. The seven male leads have been played by Neil Nitin Mukesh (as Major Rodricks), John Abraham (Jimmy), Irrfan Khan (Wasiullah), Aleksandr Dyachenko (Vronsky), Annu Kapoor (Keemat Lal), Naseeruddin Shah (Tarafdar) and Vivaan Shah. The film also starts famous playback singer Usha Uthup as a maid and Konkona Sen Sharma in a special appearance.
As is the case with all Vishal Bharadwaj movies, expectations are sky high from 7 Khoon Maaf. Vishal is known for making ordinary scenes look spectacular with his Quentin Tarantino-styled direction, effective camerawork and compelling background score. Many scenes in his previous directorial venture Kaminey were absolute brain teasers, particularly those shot in the hotel. Like his other flicks, Vishal has composed music for his new film as well.
