Paula Hawkins‘ The Girl on the Train came out in 2015 and was an immediate success and we also got a movie adaptation in 2016 starring Emily Blunt that was loved by critics and audience. The 2021 remake by Bollywood is known to be adapted from the book mixed with some additional twists. It has been a while since we have seen good psychological thrillers like The Girl on the Train and we cannot wait to watch this Parineeti Chopra starrer on Netflix. If you are still on the fence, we have five additional reasons that may just convince you.
A bestselling novel with a twist
While the movie try to stay true to the original material, Ribhu Dasgupta the director of the movie has assured us that we will still have something new to look forward to in this movie.
Parineeti Chopra in a new avatar
We have often seen Parineeti Chopra in roles that make us laugh and smile. This is the first time we will see her in a new role as she tries to find out what actually happened that night.
Why should boys have all the limelight?
The movie focuses on the events from the perspective of three women, who have their flaws and find themselves embroiled in this conspiracy. This is something we see rarely in Bollywood movies.
Alcoholism and mental illnesses getting their due
Movies have played an important role in trying to reduce the taboo on mental illnesses and alcoholism due to them. This is another movie that offers a take on it.
Ribhu Dasgupta for the win
Ribhu Dasgupta‘s last project was the Netflix series Bard of Blood, which was also an adaptation. Based on that, we cannot wait to see what he has done with this movie.
The Girl on the Train is coming to Netflix on 26th February. Click on the link below for more movie news.
