Quick Glance

  • Excellent cinematography

  • Rajendran's cameo scenes

  • Editing and presentation

  • Unique narrative style and focus

What's not?
  • Marketing it as a horror film was a bad choice

When three young people gets stuck in a house haunted by a ghost, all hell breaks loose and they are left in a frenzy to know why it continues to terrorize them every night.

The Cast

For a first timer, GV Prakash has done a really good job in the movie. While his emotions are not perfect, he aptly fits the role of a confused lover and does his best to take the story forward. It is Karunaas and his friend Bala Saravanan who steals the show throughout the movie besides all other supporting cast. The film takes comedy seriously and delivers a lot of punch lines that fills the theater with an uproar.

The Team

Director Sam Anton has picked up a Telugu script for his first time venture and he has done justice to the movie. While he has made some nice changes to the original script, going with comedy as a whole and light on horror is another good move that makes the movie enjoyable. Cinematography, editing and music are all on the good side that increases production values for 'Darling'.

Bottom line – Filled with amazing comedy, it would easily make you laugh your heart out!

Certified Fresh – Yes!
