The Girl On The Train Trailer Review: Parineeti Chopra Starrer Seems To Be An Al-Kohl-Ic’s Tale
The American film The Girl On The Train about a  lonely disoriented  New York commuter who gets embroiled in a murder gets on its trip with Parineeti Chopra stepping into Emily Blunt’s Oscar-nominated role. Parineeti makes sure she’s nominated too. Any woman actor playing an alcoholic with smudgy kohl look surely catches every awards’ jury‘s attention. The last performance by a tipsy kohl-miner that got praised was Katrina Kaif in Zero.

Parineeti is all over the place in the trailer. She is eager to make an impression as an alcoholic who stalks Aditi Rao Hydari and probably kills her. We don’t know for sure. So far except for Kajol in Gupt I haven’t seen a leading lady who is a murderer.

The trailer shows that the turbulent drama has moved from NY to London without any transit damages. Director Ribhu Dasgupta knows his thriller well. This  seems to be one of the more  skilled adaptations of a foreign  film in recent times with Kirti Kulhari nailing it as  the investigative officer mumbling to the Al-kohl-ist, “Aur kitna jhooth bologi tum?” Which actually sounds like, “Aur kitna  piyogi tum?”

Some of the dialogues in the trailer seem translated from the  English. “Tum sure ho tumne usse HURT nahin kiya hoga?”

No one uses the word hurt for murder in Hindi. At the end of the trailer, I can only say one thing for.  Ribhu Dasgupta ne original film ko hurt nahin kiya. The rest, we will see on Netflix when the film premiers on  26 February.
