This article discusses the ending of the Netflix film Monica, O My Darling and will contain spoilers.
From the opening of this film, the tone is set by director Vasan Bala who pulls you into the world of Satyanarayan Adhikari (Vijay Kenkre) who is the head of the Unicorn group, based in Pune. He is incredibly intelligent and has created a high-tech robot, with the help of Jayant Arkhedkar (Rajkummar Rao). Satyanarayan is very proud of his work and ends up promoting him much to the annoyance of his son, Nishikant Adhikari (Sikandar Kher). Satyanarayan also has a daughter named Nikki (Akansha Ranjan Kapoor) who is in love with Jayant.
In this web of romance and relationships, one man gets entangled in a conspiracy. The one thing Bala does well is creates a unique atmosphere when blending genres. There is plenty of action and great close-ups of characters that make them intimidating when they’re speaking. There are also some conventions pulled from a Western that works within the context of Bollywood films. The suspense is built extremely well and the score that accompanies the scenes elevates it to another level. We also find out that Jayant doesn’t love Nikki but is dating her so that he can marry her and usurp the Unicorn empire. Then enters Monica Machado (Huma S Quereshi) who works in Unicorn and Jayant is attracted to her. They eventually have a fling and as months go by, Monica informs Jayant that she is pregnant with his child.
Monica, O My Darling ending explained
The ending of this film is rather complex as many people end up dying in the midst of trying to kill Monica. Gaurav ends up killing Dev, and Satyanarayan threw Faridi under the bus in order to save Jayant’s career. When Shalu learns about this, she actually accuses Jayant of killing Dev. He needs to clear his name and tries to go elsewhere but Tamang does try to stop Jayant from going any higher on the board of directors.
After finding out that Tamang committed another crime, Jayant calls in the police, and ACP Naidu hints that the woman suffering from cataracts is Monica’s killer. They were able to smell the perfume that is similar to hers in order to match the suspect with the murderer. This all stems from the father of Monica’s baby and there were multiple, that’s why the blackmail and the suspects came from all sides. Tamang, Jayant, and Satyanarayan all had cause to go after her and she had been trying to lock down at least one of them to help with the expenses of having a child. Everyone became involved but only one person managed to kill her and it was Tamang, who put snake venom in her drink. All this happened for the men to move up in the board of directors and one woman ended up controlling them all.
