Haseen Dillruba reminds netizens of Roald Dahl’s short story, Lamb to the Slaughter


Taapsee Pannu, Vikrant Massey and Harshvardhan Rane’s latest movie, Haseen Dillruba premiered on a leading streaming platform last week and has opened to mixed reviews. While many viewers liked the suspense, music and the pulp fiction-esque narrative, others have criticised it for being predictable and for glorifying toxic romance. Earlier today, Pannu had even responded to a Twitter user who pointed out that Haseen Dillruba glorifies toxic masculine love. “If we want films to not reflect the society we live in and constantly present what is the ideal world to be in then I think we should stop raising voices against all those powers too that suppress the voice of cinema when reality is projected,” she had said.

Now, the film is in the eye of the storm for another reason. Over the weekend, netizens picked up similarities between the plot of Haseen Dillruba and Roald Dahl’s famous short story, Lamb to the Slaughter. While some called out screenwriter Kanika Dhillon for allegedly copying the story’s plot-line, others said that they appreciated the Roald Dahl reference. “@KanikaDhillon How I loved the Roald Dahl reference! So much love for Haseen Dilruba. Thank you so so much for it,” wrote author Vivek Tejuja on Twitter.

“Did anyone remember Roald Dahl’s short story ‘Lamb to the slaughter’ whilst watching #HaseenDillruba?” tweeted journalist Anuj Radia. Lamb to the Slaughter is one of Dahl’s most famous short stories and the idea for the story came to him during a dinner engagement that he attended with Ian Fleming, the brains behind James Bond.
