Many people believed that the diva movie offered revere misogyny. ‘Darlings’ show Vijay in the role of Hamza Shaikh, Badru’s husband who beats her up until she decides to take revenge, kidnaps him and tortures him at the same house they live in.
In the storyline, Alia is throwing water, pan and misbehaving with her husband and this is why people find this movie objectionable.
