#Darlings ⭐️⭐️🌟 ( 2.5)
Manifest a pertinent message on domestic violence by fusing humor & thrill in the narrative but screenplay gets stretched towards last 40 mins with unconvincing series of events. Absence of Smart writing & powerful climax makes darlings an average watch. pic.twitter.com/6k0DcdDS4m
