Opening February 18: 7 Khoon Maaf

I am really looking forward to this weekend’s new Hindi release: director Vishal Bhardwaj’s 7 Khoon Maaf (“Seven Murders Forgiven”). The film is a black comedy based on Ruskin Bond’s short story “Susanna’s Seven Husbands.” It stars Priyanka Chopra in the lead role, with Bollywood heavy hitters like Naseeruddin Shah, Irrfan Khan, Neil Nitin Mukesh and John Abraham playing some of Susanna’s seven doomed husbands.

A glut of Oscar-nominated movies still taking up screen space is likely what has limited 7 Khoon Maaf‘s opening to just two theaters in the Chicago area. The movie opens on Friday, February 18, 2011, at the Big Cinemas Golf Glen 5 in Niles and Regal Cantera Stadium 30 in Warrenville.

Sports flick Patiala House gets a second week at the Golf Glen 5, Cantera 30 and AMC South Barrington 30 in South Barrington.

Other Indian movies playing in Chicagoland this weekend include Gaganam (Telugu), Katha Screenplay Darshakatvam Appalaraju (Telugu), Nadunisi Naigal (Tamil) and Vasthadu Naa Raju (Telugu) at the Golf Glen 5.

    Hi, stumbled upon your blog from imdb links. Looks like you know much more about bollywood than i do. And i admire you courage and patience in watching and reviewing many of the crappiest movies of bollywood between very few good movies that we rarely produce in a year. IF u really want to witness real life bollywood drama, i think u should watch cwg opening ceremony. Commonwealth games were for the first being held in India and it had all the negatives issues to start with – delays, corruptions, terrorist attack fear, hygiene issue and many more but it all ended well with a grand opening ceremony. here is the link –

    It was the best bollywood movie for me of 2010. hope u enjoy it too..

      Thanks for the link to the opening ceremony video, Arvind. Very cool. I’m glad the games were a success after all of the bad publicity before they began.
