MOVIE REVIEW: The Girl On The Train starts off on a promising note with a quick character introduction and fast-paced first half. But soon the storyline becomes hard to follow and the screenplay becomes boring.
Parineeti Chopra delivered an average performance. Aditi Rao Hydari and Kirti Kulhari gave a decent performance. Avinash Tiwary and other supporting casts are just fine in their roles. Ribhu Dasgupta’s direction is bland, dialogues are flat and the music is forgettable.
Railway scenes were shot on the location of the Mid-Norfolk Railway. Tribhuvan Babu Sadineni’s cinematography is impressive and Sangeeth Varghese’s editing is good.
