Parvez Shaikh and Jasmeet K. Reen have written a wonderful story and fast-paced screenplay, both of which keep the viewers engrossed. The drama does get a bit depressing at places in the first half but that feeling doesn’t linger on for too long. There are so many twists and turns that the audience gets completely involved and engrossed in the unfolding drama. The second half is simply brilliant. On the whole, Darlings is an entertaining fare with a fast-paced script, excellent narration and some extraordinary performances.

Darlings, which ploughs a dark furrow all its own while making judicious use of genre elements while shunning standard narrative tropes, is watchable all the way.

But the climactic sequence, which has satisfying heft, rescues ‘Darlings’ from getting derailed. With her maiden production, dotted with a clutch of excellent performances, Alia Bhatt has raised the bar for movies with meaning, something a lost-in-the-woods Bollywood can do with.

Despite being let down by the men in their lives, they choose to not look at themselves as victims and that is the highlight of this daring domestic drama that sheds light on the male privilege, physical-emotional abuse and intimidation. There are several reasons to watch this film, but Shefali and Alia’s brilliant performances top the list.

Satire is a tough tool and Darlings wields it well. Even though sometimes the satire might not translate and the pacing might wobble, the pros heavily outweigh the cons. The film’s focus remains on being modest and real– for instance, there are no unnecessary redemption arcs. Yet, its vision remains clear till the end.

Darlings is a film with a message. It touches upon the subject of domestic violence and addiction. Alia and Shefali’s timing and Vijay Varma’s acting save Darlings from becoming just another film with a social message.

Despite being a black comedy, the film has no elaborate or hilarious comic scene, and mostly remains an emotional affair. The production design and attention to detail is commendable, as is the pace of editing. Director Jasmeet K Reen has done a good job of telling the story without going into too many complications, while also maintaining a sense of dread all through the narrative. Some of the well-directed scenes are the build-ups to episodes of violence between Hamza and Badru. Darlings has good situational songs like La Ilaaj, Bhasad, and Pleaj, which capture the mood quite well. Darlings might not be the best black comedy out there, but it definitely is worth a watch, especially if you are looking for stories about strong women taking charge of their own lives.

Whatever you might feel about gender equality or flawed laws in the space of domestic abuse, Darlings is a good watch. It is realistic, breezy, emotional and terrifying too. The performances of the main cast is the cherry on top.
