Darlings, it is times for some feminine actions against male brutalities.
Alia Bhatt in debutant director Jasneet Reen’s Darlings has this quaint habit of adding an extra ‘s’ to English words. That’s not all that she adds to this bubbling potpourri on domestic violence and how to get even with an abusive partner.
Shefali Shah and Alia are in great form as a conniving deceptively demure mother and daughter. Under their watchful eyes, the trailer blossoms into a work of sly splendour,at once satirical and tender.
Talking about Darlings, debutant director Jasmeet K Reen said, “It’s been an exceptionally fulfilling creative journey from inception to seeing it come alive, along with the team at Red Chillies and Eternal Sunshine. This is my first film and I am fortunate to have worked with such amazing actors and a world class crew who have given the film more than I could ask for. I hope that Darlings will engage and entertain audiences and I can’t wait to take my film global with Netflix.”
Alia Bhatt, kicking off her maiden production (Eternal Sunshine) with Darlings shared,“Darlings is special, the moment I read the script, I wanted to be a part of the film not only as an actor, but to play a larger role in bringing such unique stories to the viewers. I can’t hold back my excitement as we unveil the hard work of some amazing co-actors, partner producers and Jasmeet. It’s an engaging tale that we all can’t wait to bring you through Netflix.”
