Monica O My Darling, these words remind us of one of the most iconic songs of the Indian film industry. This particular song is not only known for its melody but also for its impressive music and lyrics. It was in the earlier years when this song was on everybody’s mind. At this time we are not here to discuss about the song or the music but we have come up with another Netflix movie starring Huma Qureshi and Rajkumar Rao along with Radhika Apte, titled Monica O My Darling.
This Indian Hindi film is a murder mystery but at the same place, it holds some humor and dark comedy. The concept of the movie is solely based on a modern mystery but Vasan Bala’s direction is impressive. Unpredictable twists and turns, an amazing cast, impressive performances, retro background music, and dark humor made the movie captivating. Despite possessing a genre of crime, the story didn’t go much intense. The film begins with a murder and ends on an unexpected note. All the actors did complete justice to their respective roles.
On the other hand, Monica O My Darling is an adapted movie. This adaptation has been done from a Japanese novel.
There is no second thought in saying that Netflix rarely disappoints its audience. In recent years this streaming giant has provided a great platform for a huge number of movies and series. This time also this Netflix original film Monica O My Darling is worth watching, at least for once.

Lastly, they sign a pact according to which Nishikant will kill Monica, Jayant will transport the body to another place and Arvind will dispose of that dead body.
The next day in the office both of them, Arvind and Jayant, were shocked to see Monica back in her cabin. Shockingly, Nishikant was missing. Thereafter, we come to know that it was not Monica’s body that was disposed of by Arvind but it was Nishikant’s. This unexpected death scared Jayant and Arvind.

It was confirmed that there was poison in her wine that was injected very neatly by an anonymous.
Seeing her death, he leaves the room in a panic. Here we get to know that Jayant Arkhedkar did not kill Monica.
Who Killed Nishikant Adhikari And Arvind?
Behind the killing of Arvind and Nishikant Adhikari, there was only one name, Gaurav. This was so unexpected in the film but it’s true. Gaurav did not want to kill or commit these murders the fear of being separated from Shalu made him go to this extent. At the very beginning of the story, he kills one of his employees as he proposed to Gaurav’s lover. But unfortunately, Nishikant saw Gaurav while doing all this but he didn’t react rather was much more friendly and offered his shoulder during the tough times. Gaurav was also relieved by the fact that Nishikant won’t disclose his secret.
But as the story continues, Gaurav was told to kill Monica by Nishikant, according to the plan made by him and the others. Arvind and Jayant didn’t know that both had something going on between them. Gaurav was reluctant to do so and hence, killed Nishikant. He found the deal papers as well.
After the mourning of Adhikari’s son, Gaurav sends a box with a cobra snake in it to Arvind whose bite killed him.
Jayant got a clear picture when Gaurav attacks him while elaborating the entire story. But, lastly, Jayant uses his control over the machine, and Gaurav is killed. ACP Naidu closes the case through a press conference stating Monica was pregnant with the child of one of the company’s employees, Tamang.
Who Killed Monica?
Tamang killed Monica by injecting snake venom into her drink. Actually, she was not pregnant with his child instead it was Satyanarayan Adhikari’s child. To stop Monica reveal the truth to his daughter Nikki, he ordered Tamang to ‘take care’ and hence he killed Monica. ACP Naidu is told to look after Tamang and it is possible that she might have killed him.
