The Girl on the Train is out on Netflix and features Parineet Chopra in the leading role. The film is Ribhu Dasgupta’s second outing with the streaming platform while also marking Parineet’s digital debut. A psychological thriller, The Girl on the Train cast includes Aditi Rao Hydari, Avinash Tiwary, Kirti Kulhari, and others. The teaser was well received by fans!
As for The Girl on the Train review, we’d first get you acquainted with the characters. Starting off with the primary member as far as The Girl on the Train cast is concerned, Parineeti plays Mira Kapoor. Aditi takes on the role of Nusrat, while Avinash is Mira’s husband Shekhar, and Kirti, the police officer. Mira is suffering from amnesia and becomes the prime suspect after Nusrat gets murdered on an unfortunate night. In an attempt to prove herself innocent, Mira traces the events of that unfateful night all on her own.
For a thriller, the movie does not stand very strong, however, we need to give it out to the entire cast of The Girl on the Train. Every character, big or small, has done a great job at it. While we did notice some accents here and there, we think we can ignore it for now. A lot was being complained about the trailer as it seemed linear, and that kind of changes with the movie. However, it is also important to highlight how it may not seem to have done the job right.
It is only until we are over an hour into the movie that things seem to get interesting. Now, we can’t complain about how everything in the first half is so believable that the second half comes across as a shock, right? However, what we do have a complaint about is that it felt rushed up towards the end, with everything unfolding all at once.
Before we get talking about The Girl on the Train review, let’s have a look at the trailer:
Without giving away any spoiler, personally, I can say that it may not have been the ending I thought. And so, as a psychological thriller, the movie does its job. However, if we talk about the packaging in total, I wouldn’t be too sure about that.
Not everyone would sit through the entire film, hoping that it gets better in the end. And so, that is one of the complaints as for our The Girl on the Train review. However, it can classify as an above-average film, that ends on a high. Hence, that is what we are likely to remember about it. The movie would have been a suitable experience on the big screens. However, many may not find it worth the bucks.
Avinash, as usual, is an absolute treat to watch on the screens. Kirti, who plays the investigating officer, did a great job, but there could have been layers to her character. It feels like the character falls flat at various points. As for Aditi, we wished to see more of her, because she is an absolute show-stealer. And finally, the star from the cast of The Girl on the Train, Parineeti has us impressed for sure.
The Girl on the Train does not feel like a run-of-the-mill movie, but that doesn’t mean it couldn’t have been better. Nonetheless, the strong cast is a winner for us as far as The Girl on the Train movie review is concerned.
