After longtime finding good dark comedy in Hindi without remakes is good reason to pickup this movie, as it holds a satisfying climax. The struggle to hold on to abusive relationship is so well crafted in the story and flushed awesomely by Alia. And a manipulative husband, and a lovable mother with her grim past. Make this movie a good one,

Dark Comedy without Comedy
Kudos to the team for choosing such topic. Vijay Verma was excellent. It was nice to see a built up towards Badru's anger to to the point she wanted to teach Hamza a lesson totally believable not expected from Bollywood but nice surprise. Now to the story it was promoted as dark humor but apart from 1 or 2 scenes i didnt find any comdedy. It was pretty straight forward story. There was nothing extra ordinary to lift the movie. It felt like a TV movie nothing more. Comedy can be best said to be an extinct art in Bollywood. Zulfi and Badru's mom character could have been explored more. Tons of dark comedy could hve been added. Anyways good step forward but needs more polish.

My mom and I loved the film
Just finished watching Darlings with my mom and we both loved the film.
Jasmeet K Reen is a marvelous director. She has the ability to make her movies in such a manner that it impacts the mind of the audience and makes them think. The humor was quite nicely added with the important issue of the movie. It's a very important movie for Indian society where domestic violence is still prevalent in many households. The dialogues and the screenplay in the movie are of top class.
The best thing in the film is undoubtedly the phenomenal acting from everyone, especially Alia Bhatt and Shefali Shah. Alia keeps on getting better with each and every project of hers and Shefali Shah is a terrific actor.
This movie will make you laugh, cry and angry sometimes and overall it will keep you entertained throughout. Strongly recommended.
