Sharanya Kumar Film Companion Khoon Bhari Maang has everything that made Bollywood in the Eighties fantastically entertaining, but under the excess is a subtle reminder that women need to be independent and in control of their own finances. Nov 10, 2023 Full Review Poulomi Das Arré It's only a film like Khoon Bhari Maang that can turn a complete lack of logic into poignancy. Mar 11, 2019 Full Review Read all reviews

Audience Member A very boring movie. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/21/23 Full Review Audience Member The ultimate woman-takes-revenge-on-the-world-chick-flick film features one of the BEST Rekha performances and the equally suave Kabir Bedi as an amazingly cruel and selfish villain set out to gain everything for himself. Powerfully moving, this story is not intended to be seen by children and/or teens due to some disturbing content matter (I myself viewed this film in my early teens and got totally freaked out) and non-graphic adult-related material presented in the film's themes. Watch this film alone without the kids and enjoy it for what it's worth. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/19/23 Full Review Read all reviews
