Is ‘Monica O My Darling’ Related To ‘Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota’?: “Monica O My Darling” has been released on Netflix this weekend and it has been creating waves for its humorous and neo-noir crime thriller take on the Japanese Novel, Written and directed by Vasan Bala, the film is a comedic account of tragedies that keep happening to a Robotics Company but in those little scenes.

While we see a lot of story developments, several easter eggs force us to think that the film is much more considering the recent times where everything directed by the same director is somehow connected making those movies his/her own Universe and the cameos by Abhimanyu Dasani and Radhika Madan in Monica O My Darling lean on the better side of confirming this hypothesis that “Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota” & “Monica O My Darling” are connected and set in the same universe.

If you look closely at the details when Nishikant’s body is identified by two people who have come to Khandala to spot Leopards and we see the guy calling the girl played by Radhika Madan “Supri Didi” which is the name of Radhika character in “Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota” whereas when Monica dies, we can see that news broadcast on TV and a group of employees of maybe some other company are watching the TV and we see Abhimanyu Dasani watching the TV and gulping water like crazy.

For the fans of Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota, they realize that in the movie, his name was Surya and he used to drink water quite a lot because of the danger of dehydration and we can see Abhimanyu doing the same thing, gulping water like crazy which leans towards the idea of him being Surya from Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota.

The involvement of these two characters from another movie of Vasan Bala actually tells us something for future movies or maybe it’s just a humorous take to make us believe something that is not going to be true and Vasan Bala is playing with us.

But for right now, the connection between these two movies is Surya and Supri from Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota.
