Khoon Bhari Maang – Blood in place of vermillion!
11 September 2015 | by g_aparnaSee all my reviews

A dumb widow(Rekha) is lured into marriage by her best friend(Sonu)! The bold & brazen Sonu offers her boyfriend (Kabir) as a bait and the dumbo gulps it down!

The dumbo widow was also a mother of 2 kids and filthy rich too – i.e. financially independent. But clever and conniving Sonu counsels the dumbo to marry because children need a father. Dumbo agrees to marry Kabir – not thinking even once that with sexy-sultry Sonu around, how come Kabir was showing interest on a fat and ugly widow! Nor did she do any background check – as I said 'dumb'!

So Kabir takes her for a ride...yea literally ...and throws her to be devoured by the hungry crocodiles! After seeing blood in water and confirming that the ugly fatso has been disposed, Kabir happily returns home and starts to live-in with Sonu and turns the children into servants in their own house!

Well, real life would have finished here – the daughter would have grown up..in some kinda incest-like environment and the son would have turned into some drug addict – both the children would have had a sad and gory ending too! But Hindi film had other plans! They turned the ugly fatso into a beautiful swan...along with making her highly intelligent too and she manages to take revenge!

She re-unites with her children! Happy ending!

USPs – Song : Jeene ke bahane lakho hai ...

(meaning- There are many reasons to live, you never learnt the art of living, anyone can belong to you, you never tried hard enough!)

This is the dangerous song that Sonu sang to lure Rekha in Kabir's trap! So girls, do not fall in false traps like this! Be very careful of such smooth talkers who show too much interest in your personal life! Because when Rekha pushed her luck – after being convinced by smooth talker Sonu – she landed up straight in the crocodile's mouth!
