More details Susanna's Seven Husbands by Ruskin Bond has recently gained popularity after the the movie being released. If you liked 7 Khoon Maaf, you will love Susanna's Seven Husbands. As many might know the plot, Susanna's Seven Husbands is about Susanna and how she always falls in love with wrong men and ends up murdering them. The story is narrated from Arun's point of view, a neighbour of Susanna who has lived to tell the story. Arun compares Susanna to the black widow which kills after it mates. This is a breathtaking story of Susanna as she survives 7 husbands. You actually feel pity for her at some point of time. The love she never received makes her a dangerous woman. It is now for Arun to decide whether the rumours about Susanna is true, the girl Arun is in love with.
Overall an amazing plot that will keep you wanting for more. Ruskin Bond never disappoints.

More details Susanna’s Seven Husbands is a novella by the much-acclaimed Ruskin Bond. The story is told as a narrative from the character, Arun’s point of view. Arun is Susanna’s neighbor and is secretly in love with her. Bond has done a wonderful job in creating and developing a dark and alluring character of Susanna. The protagonist has a way of falling for the wrong men, every single time. The story describes Susanna’s journey through a series of seven marriages, all of them leaving behind a dead husband. The tale is wonderfully structured and has a stygian quality in it. The story has also been developed into a motion picture titled “Saat Khoon Maaf”. The winning point of the plot and the story is the central character of Susanna, which is charismatic and edgy, and makes you want to read more. Even though the book is not a thriller per se, one does get hooked on till the very last page wanting to know how it ends. Hide details

More details I simply loved the short story and found the novella to be strictly okay. But the screenplay of the movie Saat Khoon Maaf was a complete let-down. No wonder the film was such a flop!

The concept of this richie-richie woman falling in love with seven wrong guys only to kill them is interesting. But the storyline demands to be narrated without much stretching. Perhaps that is why the short story is the best and the screenplay undoubtedly the worst.

Nevertheless I recommend everyone to pick up the short story and read. It like every other Ruskin Bond story is simple, believable and very entertaining.
