A psychological thriller with a number of twists, The Girl On The Train, a Netflix presentation degenerates into a bumpy rise and runs out of steam in no time. Directed and written by Ribhu Dasgupta, the film is based on the book written by Paula Hawkins, bestseller of the same title. However, the movie did not grab the attention of people.
Rather than a drama about a woman who is lost and wishes to find herself again, Ribhu’s movie stumbles on thriller territory. Mira, Parineeti Chopra, plays the role of a divorcee in London. She practices law but ends up in trouble because of her binge drinking. One thing that disturbs her the most is she is still stuck in her ex husband, Shekhar. But with time she gets married for the second time and is still not happy. This is why she continues drinking more and more every single day.
One fine day she sees a couple from the window of her train as she commutes everyday. The picture of the contentment seems to be Anand and Nusrat. Mira sees the couple everyday and wishes to live a life like Nusrat until one fine day everything changes.
One fine day Nusrat goes missing, and Mira is spotted. She then plays the role of an alcoholic lady who loses her memory and barely can hold herself together. However, she never forgets to wear her eyeliner and dresses up in the best way possible. Now this is where Kirti Kulhari’s police investigation begins and she finds a number of evidence against Mira.
