Ajeeb Daastaan’s True Story, Film Cast & More on Netflix Original
India’s list of anthology films seems to be growing at an exponential rate. After the release of films like Ghost Stories, Lust Stories and Not suspended, we have another anthology with a stellar cast, courtesy of Netflix Originals. Ajeeb Daastaans releases today on Netflix, and here’s everything you need to know about the story and its cast.
The story of Ajeeb Daastaans on Netflix –
Ajeeb Daastaans tells the story of four women from four different backgrounds, stuck in broken relationships with themselves and others. Fatima Sana Shaikh and Jaideep Ahlawat (Majnu) are two people stuck in a mock marriage where the wife begins to question her husband’s loyalty and hypocrisy. Her extramarital affair becomes a way to seek the full attention of her unloving husband and her own way of satisfying his desires. Nushrat Bharucha (Khilauna) tells the story of a woman in a straitjacket by the norms of society, who pushes her limits to save herself. We see Shefali Shah (Ankahee) playing the role of an exhausted mother who is dismayed at her husband’s insensitivity to their daughter’s condition. And then there is Konkona Sen Sharma and Aditi Rao Hydari (Geeli Pucchi). They begin to discover a new sense of friendship when everyone lets them down.
Divided by different narratives, these women are not victims. They face moral challenges that show what it takes to be a human today. Torn between good and evil, it is the fundamental human emotions (jealousy, law, prejudice and toxicity) that bind them together.
