Darlings Twitter review: Initial reviews from Alia Bhatt, Shefali Shah, Vijay Verma and Roshan Mathew starrer Darlings have been mixed, and few internet users have questioned the balance between crime and comedy. Several reviewers and influencers have shared their views on the film and it seems like the internet is divided on opinions.
Trading expert Sumit Kadel shared his review of the film on Twitter, writing: “Make a pertinent message about domestic violence by fusing humor and suspense in the story, but the screenplay is stretched to the last 40 minutes with inconclusive sequence of events. Absence of clever writing and powerful climax makes Sweetheart an average watch.

Another user called Darlings “AN AVERAGE SATIRE” and went on to write: “Highlights – Strong lead characters, some humor, recognizability and realistic structure, dialogues, underlying themes. Score – 65%. Watch it before the performance.”

#DarlingsOnNetflix #Favourites raw. For real. Relevance. ‘Darlings’ captures your heart from the first frame to the last. Alia-Shefali-Vijay-Roshan all provide superlatives. ‘Darlings’ is by far the best OTT product out in recent times!

#Favourites would be one of the few movies I would have loved to see in the cinema. Very entertaining and what a script. Alia just keeps on proving she’s on top of her game. Movies like this being dumped on OTT is just sad. This would certainly have done well in the cinema. — Ayush (@987_jain) August 5, 2022

The story revolves around an alcoholic husband, his treatment of his wife and mother-in-law, perfect setting, casting and acting. The story loses traction somewhere, but dialogues make it. Climax may appeal to some, others not. Women will like it more#AliaBhatt #Favourites pic.twitter.com/bEluTthN1O— Bollywood Premee (@BollywoodPremee) August 4, 2022
The trailer of one of the highly anticipated films Darlings, starring Alia Bhatt, Shefali Sha and Vijay Varma, was released with high expectations. Alia Bhatt, who is also the producer of the film, took to Instagram and dropped the trailer. Alia Bhatt shared the trailer, writing: “My first movie as a producer!!! So excited, nervous, emotional to share it with you!!!! DARLINGS TRAILER OUT NOW!!.” Netizens loved the trailer, they dropped hearts under the post. Filmmaker Shakun Batra wrote: “So proud of you Al!! Congratulations!!!”
Darlings is a dark comedy-drama that explores the lives of a mother-daughter duo trying to find their place in Mumbai, seeking courage and love in exceptional circumstances, as they fight against all odds. Shefali Shah plays Alia’s mother and Vijay Varma plays her husband directed by Jasmeet K Reen.
The classic team of Vishal Bhardwaj and Gulzar composed and wrote the soundtrack of Darlings and hence there are great expectations for the album of the film. The film is slated to release on Netflix on August 5 and also features Malayalam actor Roshan Mathew who made his Bollywood debut with Anurag Kashyap’s Choked, which was also released on Netflix in 2020.
