Bhardwaj disappoints!
19 February 2011 | by saad_khiSee all my reviews

Priyanka and Bhardwaj don't know the meaning of a dark comedy and this one isn't as they promoted and claimed it to be. a big disappointment! Going by the book of acting, Vivaan Shah is at home and consciously or otherwise copies his father. Priyanka is OK as psychotic roles such as Susannaha have been done to death. Neil is impressive! Darkly filmed this is one should be seen with the hall lights on. And considering, and as it is obvious from the premise, the protagonist kills seven husbands, the let down is she is not exactly a femme fatal (alone) but is one of the sadists under the same roof. When she was capable of becoming a mother then why didn't she? Or instead of a husband, was she looking for a father figure as she was close to her's? Not clear! No thrills or twists the story just trots on! looking back Kaminay was dark (the way it was executed) too and was close to a black comedy. so the latter is one definition for a dark comedy for the director and his current muse. As an antidote for this looking forward to Tanu weds Manu next week!
