The written work of Paula Hawkins, an intensely psychological piece, has always been a challenge to recreate on the screen. Many “action” in the book is actually internalized and take place as the process of thought of the protagonist. Parineeti Chopra continues the top trying to emphasize the fact that the protagonist, introduced here like Mira Kapoor, suffers from pain. She shouted and screams a lot, frowns and looks, and act as if her character was on the substance (ok, she is an alcoholic for most parts).

Do not sit on the edge of your seat when you look at that, you may relax.
They do not need to worry about comparisons, there is no sustainability. Ribhu Dasgupta Bollywoods Bollywoodisis (Oops, adaptation) of the same-selling Paula Hawkins is too lazy to recreate the slow shock value of novel burns and banks during a tangle of torsions without consequence.
The written work of Hawkins, an intensely psychological piece, has always been a challenge to recreate on the screen. Many “action” in the book is actually internalized and take place as a process of thought of the protagonist. You realized this aspect even by looking at the 2016 Hollywood adaptation, while watching Emily blunt. However, Blunt did a great job of transmitting pain through silences, bringing the void living in his eyes.
Parineeti Chopra, on the other hand, tries to emphasize the fact that the protagonist, introduced here as Mira Kapoor, has trouble suffering. She shouted and screams a lot, frowns and looks, and act as if her character was on the substance (ok, she is an alcoholic for most parts).
A brief prelude tells us why Mira finds himself in this way after seeing him starting as an alpha woman in London – prosperous lawyer at work and has happily married at home. She has a husband Dus, Shekhar (Avinash Tiwary), and they expect their first child.The Bliss image is broken when it undergoes a miscarriage after an accident. The doctor says that the accident caused an anterograde amnesia, Mira becomes an alcoholic divorce and Shekhar.
Broken emotionally and psychologically, Mira stops practicing law, even if she continues to go to work. During his daily excursions by train, she sees the old house she shared once with Shekhar, now occupied by a happy couple, Nusrat (Aiti Rao Hydari) and Anand (Shamaun Ahmed).
Mira finds the resonance of a perfect wedding in Nusrat’s life as she looks at her every day away from her train. One day, she sees Nusrat in an intimate pose on the balcony, with a man who is clearly not her husband.
The first of the major turning points of the film arrives early, when Nusrat will disappear and then found dead in the Greenwich Forest. A head of the Turbanhed woman, simply presented as inspector Kaur (Kirti Kulhari), investigating the case and the circumstantial evidence seems to point to Mira.
All this is actually the accumulation, intended to gradually engage the observer before the mystery takes place. In most poboner thrillers, the accumulation is at least absorbent – if something, for intrigue, it is supposed to increase. The girl on the train, unfortunately, is crushed by a weakness writing on the screen (Ribhu Dasgupta and Viddesh Malandakar), even in his first portions.
For this reason, despite its polite appearance (the cinematography of Tribhuvan Babu Sadineni deserves a mention), the film is not able to retain attention. Slow edition (Sangeeth Varghese) and some unnecessary songs (music are sunny and bawra Inder, and Patwa vibix) adjusted in narrative narrative does not help much.
Among the rare things that could remain in your mind are the act of Aiti Rao Hydari as Nusrat, in a brief but impactful representation. Most of the melting is strictly average, almost uncertain on how to handle the characters half cooked to play.
Strictly by the Standards of Thrillers Bollywood, and if you have not seen the Hollywood movie or read the novel, this remake Hindi might seem unusual. But those who have an idea of the original, might simply be disappointed.
The girl, her train, and all the Jingbang that goes with her, never succeeds altogether climbing on the right track.
