Life comes full circle for everyone. Parents usually find themselves in similar situations through their children. Her past finds a way into the present and creates an even worse situation. Director Jasmeet K. Reen sets new standards for dark comedy darlings. The story is a bit heavy considering this is her directorial debut, but the entire cast does an excellent job of telling this story. The issue of emotional and physical abuse by a partner has become increasingly mainstream in the media because of the need to share these stories. No matter how painful they may be, these stories help other victims share theirs. This film follows Badru (Alia Bhatt) and her abusive, alcoholic husband Hamza (Vijay Varma) as they navigate their destructive marriage.

The honeymoon phase at the beginning quickly reveals the power dynamic between the two. Badru was more direct and hot-headed while Hamza was sweet and understanding. It’s quickly shortened to three years later, and we see that their dynamic has changed drastically. Her apartment is dimly lit and there is this uneasiness in the room. The roles have changed due to marriage conditioning. He is meant to be the man of the house, the supporter, the strength that carries the family, and he projects those insecurities onto Badru. When Hamza goes to work, it is not his ideal position and he is humiliated in the workplace. So of course he goes home to Badru to assert his dominance and have some control over his life. He blames alcohol to justify his actions, and so does Badru, which is incredibly heartbreaking to watch.

Badru really loves Hamza and that’s why she has such a hard time leaving him. Any victim will tell you that it is incredibly difficult to leave the person you love even though they are abusing you. We see the pain and hurt Badru suffers, but she keeps coming back to him because she also blames the alcohol. Until it’s not the alcohol. Everyone around her is trying to help her get through with Hamza, and halfway through the drama turns into a very dark comedy. People can approach situations in different ways, and that’s exactly what Badru does in this film. It really depends on your sense of humor or how you feel about the subject to appreciate the point of view of this film.

darlings is a strong directorial debut by Reen and will surprise many people. It’s a bit hard to see sometimes, but it’s necessary.

The cast all work very well together to tell this story as authentically as possible so viewers understand how difficult it can be living with an abuser.
