Monica, O My Darling Review
The film begins with a high-tech robot scene where a robot killed a person in some extraordinary fashion believe me this starting will give you goosebumps. The plot swings like a pendulum with twists and turns where Rajkumar Rao as Jayant is the center of attraction. Huma Qureshi as Monica is the perfect justice to the character. Jayant a robotic genius coming from a very low background founds himself accused of the murder of a few people. Now he is on the way to proving himself innocent to everyone. Radhika Apte as ACP Naidu is just perfect, she does not have much involvement in the storyline but whenever she appears her character is just amazing.
The movie director must be given credit for bringing this simple storyline in with great execution. Vasan Bala just proved low budget movies can be outstanding if cinematography, Visuals, Humour, and directions are correctly done. The background music is used so wisely that they are only present where required not pushed forcefully. The fusion of suspense erupts continuously throughout the movie and raises the conflict to decide who is the person behind all these murders.
