‘The Girl On The Train’ Makes For a Thrilling Ride! First Stop This Weekend – Netflix

A good psychological thriller is the one that will keep you guessing till the end. Paula Hawkins‘ novel The Girl on the Train is one such thriller that keeps us hooked to our seats. Meera (Parineeti Chopra) is an alcoholic and a divorcee who also has amnesia. She was a lawyer and had the perfect life with her husband until things started going wrong. On her train route she sees a house and a woman, Nusrat (Aditi Rao Hydari), who represents her happy past and she forms an attachment with her. One day the girl goes missing and Meera finds herself wounded and covered in blood.

The movie stays true to the novel

Everyone who has ever watched a movie based on a book will complain about the movie missing the essence of the book. This movie stays true to the book and retains a lot of details from the novel including the thoughts Meera has when she sees Nusrat. A lot of her inner monologue is retained and it gives us a deeper look into her character.

A proper edge-of-the-seat thriller

Right from the first scene, your eyes are glued to the screen. The movie begins with Nusrat being attacked and the entire time after that you are looking for clues along with the rest of the characters. None of the investigation is happening offscreen so that you can get the entire experience as the investigating officer Dalbir (Kirti Kulhari), chases down witnesses and clues.

The back and forth can be confusing

Because of the nature of the story, the movie is non-linear and at some point it can get a little confusing if you haven’t been paying attention. Parineeti Chopra is earnest in her performance and as the movie progresses you feel empathetic for her. Aditi Rao Hydari and Kirti Kulhari shine in their limited screen time as well.

WATCH OR NOT:

If you are looking for a good psychological thriller this weekend, The Girl on the Train should be your first option. Even if you have read the book and watched the Hollywood adaptation, you should not miss this movie.

‘Making The Cut’ Season 2 Returns In July With An Indian Contestant

‘Making The Cut’ Season 2 Returns In July With An Indian Contestant

We live for schadenfreude. So it’s no surprise that reality TV with its manufactured, over-the-top drama is our guilty pleasure. Of course, sometimes you get lucky and are rewarded with talented contestants, heartfelt moments and virtual travel across exotic locations. One such show that fulfilled these requirements and captured our attention last year was Amazon’s fashion reality show, ‘Making the Cut’. We’re talking talented designers competing to be the next big global fashion brand; the delightfully kooky Heidi Klum and debonair Tim Gunn as hosts; Naomi Campbell’s sharp cheekbones and sharper repartees serving high fashion looks with on-point critiques, and of course, tons of drama. What’s not to like!
