STORY The girl on the train
Once feisty lawyer Mira Kapoor (Parineeti Chopra) is spiralling under the trauma of losing her child, a husband she had loved and a career that was blossoming… one high-risk case at a time. Well, it doesn’t help either that an unfortunate car accident leaves her with a rare form of amnesia and she eventually turns into a massive alcoholic. But, hope (read obsession) crawls back into her life in the form of a woman.
While frequenting the Redbridge-to-Greenwich train route every day, Mira admires the beautiful home and life of who later comes to be known as Nusrat John (Aditi Rao Hydari). However, that solace is short-lived. Nusrat is found dead in a forest and Mira’s digital footprint places her at the crime scene.
About The girl on the train
Mira Kapoor (Parineeti Chopra) finds herself in a tight spot when Inspector Kaur (Kirti Kulhari), a cop who is investigating murder case of a young woman, shoots a bunch of questions at her. The needle of suspicion points at our protagonist, who somehow manages to handle the situation. As a parting shot, Kaur gives her a piece of advice, “Do yourself a favour. Remember? Try to recall.”
As Parineeti Chopra’s character sets out to find the missing pieces of her life, you find yourself repeating Kaur’s words everytime the film loses its track.
