Starting A New Business? 7 Key Points To Keep In Mind.
Monica, O My Darling - go watch! A chaotic yet entertaining world full of characters whose motives remain unknown to the viewers till the very end.
Jayant Arkhedkar (Rajkumar Rao) finds all his dreams coming true when he gets appointed within the board of directors of the company where he works alongside being engaged to the daughter of its CEO. However, his career is soon in jeopardy when Monica (Huma Qureshi), the woman he has been having a secret affair with tells him that she is expecting his child.
What follows is him getting entwined in a series of murders that he is himself not sure about his level of involvement in.
In this crime comedy thriller, the makers of the film create a chaotic yet entertaining world full of characters whose motives remain unknown to the viewers till the very end.
Monica, for instance, is written to be an unpredictable character who is flawed in her own way, but still very different from a stereotypical femme fatale. Jayant, on the other hand, in his confused state of mind throughout, makes the audiences root after him while condemning his actions at the same time.
Another character who shines in the film is that of ACP Vijayashanti Naidu (Radhika Apte) who plays the female cop that Bollywood desperately needed – a badass woman in power who doesn’t need to be manly in order to be taken seriously.
Additionally, even the supporting cast of the film seems to be carefully chosen by its makers for they all embody the tropes they are expected to, but do it with such ease that they leave a lasting impression on the viewers. Both Sikandar Kher and Shiva Rindani, in their limited number of scenes which also have little to no dialogue, deliver a hilarious and impressive performance that stays with one in the scenes that follow theirs.
The strong performances by the cast and the quirky storyline of the film are enhanced by the background music and soundtracks that take one back to Bollywood music created in the 70-80s. In a few scenes, one might also be left wondering whether the songs are actually from that era much like Monica, O My Darling (Piya Tu Ab To Aaja). The visual features of the film alongside its overall aesthetics only strengthen its attempt to pay a tribute to the music and the films that we had in Bollywood in the 70s.
Monica, O My Darling (2022) is a brilliant comedy film that can easily be compared to the best that Bollywood has seen so far. What’s more is that it has something to offer to every movie buff in the form of witty dialogues, catchy music and praiseworthy performances. In a nutshell, it has it all – drama, entertainment, suspense and most importantly, humour.

If a woman insists on her prospective groom earning enough to keep her comfortable, she is not being “lazy”. She is just being practical, just like men!
When an actress described women as “lazy” because they choose not to have careers and insist on only considering prospective grooms who earn a lot, many jumped to her defence.
Many men (and women) shared stories about how “choosy” women have now become.
One wrote in a now-deleted post that when they were looking for a bride for her brother, the eligible women all laid down impossible conditions – they wanted the groom to be not more than 3 years older than them, to earn at least 50k per month, and to agree to live in an independent flat.
Ms. Kulkarni, please don’t apologise ‘IF’ you think you hurt women. Apologise because you got your facts wrong. Apologise for making sexual harassment a casual joke.
If Sonali Kulkarni’s speech on most modern Indian women being lazy left me shocked and enraged, her apology post left me deeply saddened.
I’d shared my thoughts on her problematic speech in an earlier article. So, I’ll share why I felt Kulkarni’s apology post was more damaging than her speech.
If her speech made her an overnight hero among MRAs, sexists, and people who were awed by her dramatic words, then her apology post made her a legendary saint.
