'Darlings' Movie Review: First things first. To all those who were calling for a boycott of Alia Bhatt for allegedly promoting domestic violence against men through 'Darlings', "Never judge a book by its cover". Not only Alia Bhatt but also Vijay Varma and Shefali Shah have given 'jaw-dropping' performances through the dark comedy-drama.

'Darlings, We Loves You'. This is not just a dialogue from the film but will also become an appreciation dialogue for Alia Bhatt and the team who have delivered such an amazing film.

The film has highlighted a key issue in society — 'Domestic Violece against women'. Yes, the film doesn't promotes domestic violence against men but it gives voice to the issue of domestic violence against women.

Apart from the star cast of the film, the writers of the film -- Parveez Sheikh, and Jasmeet K. Reen -- deserve special appreciation.

The film focuses on the struggle of a woman whose husband is addicted to alcohol and beats her under the influence of alcohol. Badru, which is being played by Alia Bhatt, had blind faith in Hamza, essayed by Vijay Verma. Despite the warning by Badru's mother, which is portrayed by Shefali Shah, Badru decides to give Hamza another chance and gets pregnant.

However, Hamza beats Badru again, falling prey to a misunderstanding, that leads to her miscarriage. This incident evolves Badru in 2.0. This version of Alia Bhatt has the courage to stand against wrong and raise a voice for herself.

All in all, the movie is a must-watch and you will not regret watching it.
