‘Darlings’ Review: Alia Bhatt, Shefali Shah Starrer Is A ‘Kadak Entertainer’

‘Darlings’ was released on Netflix on Friday and have thoroughly hooked viewers with its amazing plot and great cast.

‘Darlings’ is directed by the debutant director Jasmeet K Reen; Alia Bhatt, Shefali Shah, Vijay Verma, and Roshan Mathew are the main cast. The movie unmistakably exhibits excellent acting skills, interesting characters, and efforts in the direction.

Young couple Alia Bhatt and Vijay Verma portray a rocky marriage. While Hamza, played by Vijay Verma, is a raving alcoholic who can’t control his anger and beats his wife every other night, Badru, played by Alia Bhat, is naïve and wishes for a future with him. Shamzi, Badru’s mother, Shefali Shah, lives across from them and constantly tells her daughter to leave him, but the daughter is hopeful to improve the situation.

The situation gets worse when Zulfi (Roshan Mathew), a neighbour, goes to the police and reports Hamza for domestic violence.

The film is cleverly written by Parveen Sheikh, a serious issue of domestic violence which Bollywood has seen enough times has given a smart twist with dark comedy. Thus, ‘Darlings’ stands out of the box.

Netizens admitted ‘Darlings’ is a refreshing watch, taking to Twitter, Some called it an average satire, while others remarked it was “thoroughly entertaining.”
