Movies that are purely made to entertain mass audience gain more profits. Darja is one such movie that targets the mass audience, yet fails to engage them with it’s weak script and uninteresting making. Right from the beginning movie offers some age old scenes that audience have watched since years and makes you feel uncomfortable at every step. There is no proper characterization or the conflict that could create interest among the audience and ends in very routine way.

Sunil tries his best to pull off the role as a sincere police officer, but it is hard to see the actor in a serious role with a husky tone throughout the movie. Anasuya Bharadwaj performance makes us feel that she is good only for the small screen and doesn’t look good in the negative shades role. All the other actors did a decent job with the given roles.

Technically movie looks very average. Music and the background score provided by ‘Rap Rock’ Shakeel is too loud. Cinematographer Darshan doesn’t impress with any of his shots and scenes look a little over saturated at times. Director Saleem Malik made a film with an age old script and making style that will not create any interest for the audience with some poor performances.

Finally, Darja is strictly for the audience who love the commercial entertainers that has nothing new to offer. You may watch it in theatres if you are a hardcore fan of Sunil or Anasuya Bharadwaj.

Rating: 2.25/5
