Darling movie review


Production: Studio Green, Geetha Arts
Direction: Sam Andon
Cast: GV Prakash Kumar, Nikki Galrani, Karunas, Bala Saravanan, Rajendran
Music: G.V.Prakash Kumar
Cinematography: Krishnan Vasanth


Regardless of how chilling a horror film is, the humour blend to it peps up the show and naturally wins the hearts of audiences. They love getting scared and have smile to toast up with. The film is a remake of Prema Katha Chitram by debutant Sam Anton stars GV Prakash and Nikki Galrani in lead roles. K.E. Gnanavel Raja and Allu Aravind have produced the film.



GV Prakash Kumar is a feeble nature boy who is haunted by the love failure and is ready to commit suicide. His friend Bala Saravanan decides to revive his life by uniting him with a girl (Nikki Galrani) who has been truly in love with him for years without his knowledge. With an attempt to bring them together, they all move into an alienated luxurious farm house, which has a deadly past. Over the night, when they decide to profess their love with intimacy, GV Prakash is struck hardly by a ghost that haunts Nikki Galrani. What happens next is a series of spine-chilling moments laced with fun and suspense.


While horror flicks dominate the global box office, Kollywood has been finding more realms with horror-comedy and Darling is the latest one to join the league. Although the basic backdrop of this film has a repellently shocking tale, the screenplay blended with witty lines, albeit double entendres impresses the audiences. GV Prakash delivers an effortless endeavour, but suits it well. Nikki Galrani is a cool beauty and establishes a prominent performance as well. Her hard work is so much appealing and is blatant throughout the film. Bala Saravanan tries to evoke laughter and his combination with Karunaas offers sumptuous laughter in many places. Naan Kadavul Rajendran sweeps us over with hilarious riot in his episode. The first half hardly touches the main plot and the actual premise is set only during the post-intermission phase. Although songs are very well composed, it stands nowhere closer to the film and hampers the progression of momentum in few places. But when you hear this is an album, it’s one of the best from GV Prakash. Sam Anton deserves appreciation for a decorous effort in remaking it with some new inclusions.


What works?

1. Post intermission sequences
2. The hilarious encounters of Bala Saravanan, Karunaas and Naan Kadavul Rajendran
3. Crisp narration and perfect duration 126 minutes

What doesn’t works?

1. Sluggish first half
2. Double entendres that might fail to impress family audiences
3. Songs as album is extraordinary, but doesn’t fit into the film’s narration.

On the whole, Darling doesn’t boast of a spearheading formula in the genre of horror-comedy, but eventually manages to win the claps of audiences.

Verdict: Less horror, more humour
