Mona_Darling – India’s first social media thriller
Set in the contemporary, post-cyber world, Mona_Darling is a ‘non’ traditional horror-thriller that questions the blurring lines dividing real from virtual, good from evil and ultimately life from death.
Staring Anshuman Jha, Sanjay Suri, Divya Menon and Suzzana Mukherjee, the film is presented by Vashu Bhagnani’s Pooja Films and is produced by First Ray films.
It’s a pacy thriller, confined to limited locations on one single campus, populated by fresh, sexy, young characters. More importantly it captures the present zeitgeist of young India and its obsession with social networking.
A contemporary who-dunnit, with a splash of supernatural, set in a college campus somewhere in India (a la Indian Institute Of Technology) where a few mysterious deaths occur and the only common link between the victims is that, seconds before their deaths, they all accepted a ‘Facebook friend request’ from a certain profile page of Mona_Darling. The person behind the said page, Mona happens to be missing. Her friend, and a fellow student, Sarah recruits the help of a classmate, Wiki – a borderline sociopathic genius. This odd-couple of amateur sleuths carry on their investigation as the story leads them into unexpected corners and terrifying revelations.
