Rajkummar Rao, Huma Qureshi star in Monica O My Darling movie review
Radhika Apte is so much fun as the female version of the humorous cop that you wish there was more time for her to show her skills. Rajkummar Rao is reliably solid, Sikandar Kher adds some buoyancy, and Radhika Apte shines as the female version of the humorous cop.
‘Monica O My Darling’ aims to thrill and spill viewers with its murder, intrigue, and suspense. It succeeds.
Rajkummar Rao’s Jayant Arkhedkar (Rajkummar Rao) is an ambitious robotics expert determined to leave behind his mundane existence.
Things go south, murder is committed, and it all ends with an almighty clang.
A killer with his biggest Achilles heel being vanity, as well as misbegotten lust, femme fatales who stretch their legs to one of the most famous cabaret numbers in Hindi film history, Piya Tu Ab Toh Aaja.
As a result, I’m immediately reminded of Sriram Raghavan’s terrific thriller ‘Johnny Gaddar’.
It is impossible to improve some things.
‘Monica’ has that problem.
A character is even heard saying this in the film, ‘dheel nahin dene ka, tight rakhne ka’, or something similar.
In this intriguing ensemble cast, Rajkummar Rao is consistently strong, Sikandar Kher brings life to the proceedings, and Sukant Goel as an envious colleague feels let down by his colleagues is appropriately shifty.
Despite being vague around the edges, Akansha Ranjan and Zayn Marie Khan leave a mark, even as rich girls who feel they own their men.
In the film, Huma Qureshi plays Monica Macchado, a moffice secretary who abuses her position to gain favor with so many senior male employees. This is because it is difficult to keep track of them all.
Despite a few slow spots and twists we figure out long before the characters do, Monica is an enjoyable watch, despite its slow spots and unexpected ending.
This movie is a family drama which features Rajkummar Rao, Huma Qureshi, Radhika Apte, Akansha Ranjan, Bagavathi Perumal, Zayn Marie Khan, Sukant Goel, and Sikandar Kher in leading roles. It is directed by Vasan Bala and rated 2.5 stars on IMDb.
