Starring Alia Bhatt, Vijay Varma and Shephali Shah, Darlings is a movie that will keep you hooked with its brilliant storytelling. The cast of course has given their phenomenal performances, and you would not want to skip a single minute.

It even became difficult to hate the antagonist of the movie played by the exceptional Vijay.

A mother and daughter tackling abuse

The story revolves around Badru and Shamsu, the powerful mother daughter duo who fought till the end. It raises question on emotional abuse and domestic violence given by Hamza to his wife Badru.

When a sweet and loving person turns into a devil, it’s difficult for a woman to accept it. Badru tried everything to save her marriage and her love for Hamza, kept falling on his honey trap and sugar coated romantic words, gave herself enough reasons to stay but alas! Patience lost its test.

Shamsu is a woman with her own mind

Shamsu is a brave woman living on her own and a strong mother who supported her daughter when she decided to take her revenge. She has her own story to tell, but didn’t let her past hinder Badru’s future.

She let go of her when she decided not to be a scorpion and earn her own respect. Badru is that strong character who did not misuse her lost courage to do wrong to her husband.

Zulfi breaks the stereotype

The climax of the movie has shocked every one of us. Zulfi is that one character we’ve all loved from the beginning to the end. His confession made us all shocked. The stereotype broken by him melts our heart and makes us laugh at the same time.

Overall, the movie gives us a good lesson on what impact a domestic violence has on women, both emotionally and psychologically.

Never miss real stories from India's women.

The movie gave women wings to fly and fight for their own rights, and not to stay quiet and suffer the violence. It is a good watch if you wish to watch something intense yet comical, evil yet earnest.
