Watch The Girl On The Train – a mysterious journey starring Parineeti Chopra and Avinash Tiwary in lead roles.

The film loses the plot while joining too many ends together, audience tends to get disproportionate with certain aspects. While there are a few thrilling twists but the predictable bits are *spoilers*.

The film is set in the UK, we meet Nusrat (Aditi Rao Hydari) running away from some stalker in a forest, as the scene ends to an injured Mira Kapoor (Parineeti Chopra) waiting at the train station. Through flashback, we get to know about Mira, her work as a lawyer married to Shekhar (Avinash Tiwary). A few goons threaten her to withdraw a case. As the story moves ahead, Mira turns into an alcoholic. She becomes self-destructive. Right in the middle of this we see the story move to a couple of new characters in Nusrat’s psychiatrist Dr Hamid (Tota Roy Chowdhury), her husband Anand (Shamaun Ahmed) and Officer Kaur (Kirti Kulhari). Nusrat can’t be traced and goes missing, and following the usual thrillers, everyone seems to be a suspect.

The Girl on the Train story is based on Paula Hawkins’ book with the same name and it was labelled as ‘the next Gone Girl’ by many critics. Tate Taylor’s 2016 film was different and is the original. Ribhu Dasupta’s screenplay has the mysterious elements in the narrative. The film is filled with non-linear components and the first half moves smoothly in the narration; that’s also because of Dasgupta’s screenplay and Sangeeth Varghese’s editing. Paula Hawkins’ story is engaging and packed with plot-twists and you can feel you’ve predicted the twist. The dark plot that keeps coming with new mysteries, Tribhuvan Babu Sadineni’s cinematography upgrades without overdoing the overall. The Girl on the Train has a few good performances. Parineeti Chopra was appreciated for her roles such as Hasee Toh Phasee’s Meeta, here as Mira she was good. Pratap Borhade’s make-up is good with, the messy eye make up Parineeti was captivating in her character as a self-destructive lawyer and lover.

The support stars including Aditi Rao Hydari to Kirti Kulhari, Avinash Tiwary and Tota Roy Chowdhury packs good performers and all of them have given their best.

Ribhudas Gupta has written and has directed the film. Songs are given by Sukhwinder Singh’s Chhal Gaya Chhalaa matches the plot’s intensity, and it is good. Neha Kakkar sings Matlabi Yariyan and Parineeti Chopra’s version for the same song is with the climax.

The Girl on the Train is a thrilling story.

The Girl on the Train released on 26 February, 2021.
