Darlings song La Ilaaj: Alia Bhatt’s moving tale of woe is set against Arijit Singh’s stirring vocals

As promised the makers of Darlings have unveiled the first song from the film’s soundtrack, La Ilaaj. The song’s music video gives a glimpse into the heartbreaking story of Alia Bhatt’s Badru, as she faces some tumultuous moments in her life.

The song takes viewers through the ups and downs in Badru’s life. We get to see her share some heartwarming moments with her mother as well as her husband, Hamza. But trouble brews, and Badru is seen with a dejected look on her face. Although the clip does not explicitly show the violence, we see Badru’s face and body covered in bruises and marks.

Check out the song below:

La Ilaaj was sung by Arijit Singh and has lyrics penned by Gulzar. The song was composed by Vishal Bhardwaj. The composer spoke of how he had tried to make something soulful and fresh with La Ilaaj, hoping that it would resonate with viewers. Calling Darlings a ‘unique’ movie, Vishal said that the film dealt with many emotions that were both strong and delicate. The soundtrack too tried to emulate the same.

In addition to Alia, Darlings also features Shefali Shah, Vijay Varma and Roshan Mathew in prominent roles. While Shefali play’s Badru’s mother, Vijay plays Badru’s husband Hamza. The upcoming black comedy film will deal with themes of domestic violence and spousal abuse.

The film marks the directorial debut of Jasmeet K Reen, who has penned the script and dialogues along with Parveez Sheikh and Vijay Maurya. Darlings also marks Alia’s debut as a producer, under her Eternal Sunshine Productions banner. Gauri Khan and Gaurav Verma also produce the film under the banner of Red Chillies Entertainment. Anil Mehta has handled the film’s cinematography while Nitin Baid has edited the movie.

Darlings will premiere on Netflix on August 5, Friday.
