Mona Darling Review by Manisha Lakhe on Nowrunning
The end is convoluted and a tad unbelievable, but a fun watch nevertheless. Frankenstein is a great inspiration, but we don’t know until the end why those four lads could not just be dead by broken necks. Why did they need to be dismembered and eaten? The last eye-opening scene is a fun end. ‘A’ for effort.
Mona Darling Review by Indiaglitz
The thriller part is highly missing and is more of a wait and watch type of drama, where one does expect to see some drastic change happening in the screenplay. The solo dance song is unwanted and is added only to add glamour quotient in the movie. The background music is jarring at times. The whole purpose of the film is diluted due to forced inquisitiveness in the film. Anshuman Jha is average and acts only with one type of expression in the film. Divya Menon is decent, but lacks the screen presence. Sanjay Suri is wasted.
Mona Darling Review by Vishal Verma on Glamsham
Though it’s unbelievable to understand why Shashi Sudigala after this smart builds up does a suicidal wind up that almost kills the fear but last minute sequence saves the good attempt in the end. Looking for a rare social media scare this weekend, MONA DARLING is the fare that a teen horror geek in you would like to dare.
Mona Darling Review by Sify
With moderate production values, Mona Darling is a technically sound film. The production design by Tariq Umar Khan, camera work by Sapan Narula, sound design along with the background score are all brilliant. The editing, though crisp, does not establish the time for the sequence of events. This is also one of the reasons why the film fails. Overall, Mona Darling may appeal to you only if you like a pretentiously convoluted film. Mona Darling Review by Shubhra Gupta on Indian Express
Mona Darling Review by Reza Noorani on The Times Of India
As far as thrillers are concerned, some essential elements are a tight story, an unexpected twist and a couple of nice frights. In this one, all three are missing. There are only about four or five good, hearty frights and the first half is painfully slow in establishing the mystery. The only reason to watch the second half is to know who is killing everyone; a ghost, the internet or are you merely being taken on a ride. A saving grace is the twist, which is so weak that one can spot it fairly early in the second half and just wait to be proven right. Its conclusion is decent, but until then almost two, unentertaining hours have elapsed. Shot stylishly, this movie is high on style and low on substance.
