Monica, O My Darling review: A juicy crime thriller

Monica, O My Darling is a juicy adaptation of Japanese author Keigo Higashino’s mystery novel Burutasu No Shinzou.

The thriller makes more than a few astute observations on the quirkiness of human nature.

The story is peppered with pop-culture allusions and upbeat musical interludes.

Radhika Apte, who plays a sassy cop Naidu, tells a suspect that a perfect back story always creates doubt.

From Vijay Anand to Sriram Raghavan, director Vasan Bala gives a hat tip to masters of Indian noir.
