Darling 2 Plot:
Darling 2 has a plot which 8 out of 10 horror flicks
usually have. In this case, the film narrates the love story of
Ayesha, played by Maya, which forms the flashback portions.

Performance wise Darling 2 comes across as a
disappointment, just because of the fact that it boasts of some
wonderful performers who have not been utilized well by the
Ramdoss and Kaali Venkat are the guys who have attempted to
evoke laughter. Their attempt goes in vain and that's just about
Maya, portraying the role of Ayesha, looks apt for the role.
Having said that, the girl needs to emote well.
The only bright spot comes from the technical department, more
so from cinematography and background score.
While camerman Vijay Kartik Kannan has used interesting angles
and slick visuals, Radhan's BGM is apt for a horror-thriller,
adding solidity to Darling 2.

Narration too, has gone for a toss, giving us the impression that
director may not have invested time in the narration aspect of the
Darling 2 is just another horror film which neither
spooks nor entertains.
