Ajeeb Daastaans Movie Review

Ajeeb Daastaans – Breaking Stereotypes against Society Norms!

The trailer of ‘Ajeeb Daastaans ‘ was just released recently and we have a lot more to say about it. Interestingly it has four directors ‘Shashank Kaithan, Raj Mehta, Neeraj Ghaywan & Kayoze Irani.
We just think that maybe it will cover four different stories that are summed up together.


It is produced by Karan Johar and Apoorva Mehta. Karan Is producing a project after a very long time. And we just wish him luck because the audience doesn’t want to see his films after the “SSR” Incident.

Leading Women in Ajeeb Daastaans


Talking about the cast of “Ajeeb Daastaans”, We have got some amazing leading women. ” Fatima Sana Sheikh, Nushrratt Bharuccha, Aditi Rao Hyderi, Shefali Shah and powerhouse of talent Konkona Sen Sharma” In pivotal roles.


Talking about the plot, they have already revealed that each story will take the audience on a journey where the characters would struggle with the moral dilemma of what’s right and what’s wrong.


We are very excited about what “Ajeeb Daastaans” have got for all of us. As it is narrating the rebellious behavior of women against society’s norms & pressure.


Fatima Sana Sheikh in Ajeeb Daastaans

Fatima Sana Sheikh is playing a role of a woman who is not happy with her husband and eventually, she will fall for her ‘Devar’ (Apparently). Playing a character involved in an extramarital affair! It’s a bold attempt I must say. And I’m looking forward to it.

Nushrratt Bharuccha in Ajeeb Dastaans

Nushrratt Bharuccha seems like her daughter is in some kind of trouble. And she will go into prostitution. (Happily or forced). This is the question. Again interesting and bold attempt.
Shefali Shah’s story hinted to us of some sign language, which she’s going to deal with. The trailer didn’t reveal v much about it but we are looking forward to this story too.

Lastly, we’ve got the story of Konkona Sen Sharma & Aditi Rao Hyderi. Though the topic isn’t new, both of them are going to play it for the very first time. Looks Like Aditi is in search of her truth. The truth about her sexuality. And Konkona will help her in finding it. As both will get interested in each other. Again the bold topic of Lesbianism.


Konkona is a very mature and measured actress and I’m super excited to see her in this role. I’m sure she will do justice to her character as she has done previously in every of her film. Similarly, I’m quite fond of Aditi Rao Hyderi. She’s very underrated. I hope so, here she has got some room for performing. Her last project was ‘The Girl In Train’ and she acted beautifully in her small yet significant role.
