7 khoon maaf - External Reviews
Dir: Vishal Bharadwaj
This movie is worth watching just for Priyanka Chopra's performance. The rest of the lead cast is only a bonus. Now how I wish, there was a little bit of a surprise in the narration or at least I understood even half of why the characters behaved the way they did. Now if the only explanation is weird attracts weird and together they all get weirder, either I didn't get the film or it is one zany experience that didn't go down all that well with me. And yet I wouldn't have wanted to miss watching this one.

She uses her personality, sex appeal, Facial expressions, performance,etc to each and every marriage of hers and that’s what makes it special.... full review
So-So by Mayank Shekhar, Hindustan Times ...The story line, the main character's motivations, or her mental state, are not the picture's prime concerns. The movie is clearly crafted around strong, effective scenes alone: a lot of it, cleanly cut and clinical, a whole lot immediately compelling.... full review
So-So MSN Entertainment ...One of the most publicized highlights of the movie relates to the manner in which Priyanka ages from 20 to 65 in the movie. Todd Tucker, the man who metamorphosed Brad Pitt from an old man to a youngster in the 2008 classic 'The Curious Case of Benjamin Button', works his magic well in the early parts but somehow turns Priyanka into a zombie towards the latter parts.... full review
