Can anyone suggest me if Template Monster theme template or any other theme outside the orchard theme gallery will work with Orchard CMS ?
Since they do not provide .nupkg can I install that theme in orchard cms ?

You would have to turn those template HTML files into Razor views and render various zones into which CMS users can place content. Quite doable, but you won't be able to just use it out of the box.

So , would it need lot of efforts ?

I'd say definitely a few days for an experienced themer.

I agree. Depending on the complexity of the design and the number of custom libraries etc. used I'd say between a day and 2 weeks for someone who already did Orchard theming.
