The Girl on the Train Review by Critics:
Indianexpress.com: Parineeti Chopra’s The Girl on the Train film has the subtlety of Shatabadi Express
IOI: ‘The Girl On The Train’ is an earnest effort at reconstructing what is perceived as a cult-classic-in-the-making and the hard work the entire cast & crew has put in is palpable. A little more unabashed approach coupled with sharper snipping tools could have made this rendition Bollywood’s befitting answer to Tate Taylor’s Hollywood adaptation.
News18.com: Netflix’s The Girl on the Train wants to use the local train as the cohesive theme but the canvas of the story has a wide psychological reach to be contained within two stations. If you don’t get into nitpicking, The Girl on the Train offers good value for your time. However, truth be told, it had the potential of becoming a super intriguing watch, if only the director focussed a bit more on the characters’ internal journey.
NDTV.com: The film deviates sharply, and frequently, from the source material – British author Paula Hawkins’ bestseller of the same title that yielded an Emily Blunt-fronted Hollywood movie in 2016.
india.com: Another classic example of how to ruin a good book with a bad film. Also, can we have the Parineeti Chopra of Hasee Toh Phasee back, please?
