Bollywood Crazies Opinion: Its a pure suspense thriller that unfolds at the very end but till then it’s too late. Parineeti Chopra, Kirti Kulhari and even Aditi Rao Hydari are impressive in their respected roles. This is one of Parineeti’s best acting roles. The only problem is, if you have watched the original one than you might not like this one.
The budget of The Girl On The Train hasn’t been revealed by the makers but it would be reportedly over 13 to 15 crores minimum.
Altogether, The Girl On The Train is a full on suspense thriller that is right on the point and good to watch till the very end.
Last word: Watch it for the thriller story and Parineeti Chopra. This story is not relatable to the Indian audience, especially who watches films in theaters. If this film would have released in theaters, it would have hard for it to even collect 10 crores.
Bollywood Crazies Ratings: The Girl On The Train Review: Average (50 Percent out of 100).
