7 Khoon Maaf - the trailer

Earlier today, "VBFan" told us about the official poster of "7 Khoon Maaf" and soon after, Punit Jha posted the link to the first trailer on the Gulzarfans Y! Group. On first viewing, this one is as good as Kaminey's trailer (impressive that Indian film-makers too can cut such trailers):

Striking notes:

* Can't figure out the main voice in the song, but there's Usha Uthup in the mix (she's also acting in the film)

* A cross-dressing John Abraham!

* Nice to see Annu Kapoor in a film after a long hiatus

* Great European lilt to the tune

* Oh, and looks like the official title is "7 Khoon Maaf".

Update (25 Dec): Fight Club finds the base folk Russian song on which "Darrrling" is based (a Russian song called Kalinka).

so excited!

Can't wait! But I hope the filmmakers aren't expecting it to do great business. Priyanka's presence helps but this isn't a brainless entertainer like Tees Maar Khan, the kind of film preferred by the majority. :(

Eagerly awaiting! The movie has a similar look as Kaminey - dark frames, barely lit rooms, close angles, lots of shadows and either blue or sepia (Omkara) tint.

I am sure Gular has written the lyrics - icing on the cake!

The main voice sounds like Rekha Bharadwaj.

Vishal: yes, lyrics by Gulzar (see poster for confirmation).

Vivek: indeed, Rekha B it is.

Looks like there will be a lot overacting in this movie.
