On Wednesday, OTT platform Netflix dropped a gripping and suspense-filled trailer of the much-awaited mystery thriller ‘The Girl on the Train’ featuring Parineeti Chopra in the lead role.
For the unversed, Parineeti essays the role of an amnesia (memory loss) patient.
The one-minute fifty-five seconds trailer starts with a close up of London where one can see moving trains. The frame then captures Mira Kapoor (Parineeti) who travels through a local train each day and sees Aditi Rao Hydari and on watching her every day, Mira develops a connection with the distant stranger as she reminds Rajput of her past.
The video then shows Mira as she meets a tragic car accident with her husband, just before they were about to start their family life by welcoming a baby. On seeing Aditi living her past life, Mira gets through a line of emotions, including jealousy and self-pity. The clip then cuts to a shot when she follows Aditi through a forest, post which she is found dead in the forest.
Kriti Kulhari comes in as an investigative officer who doubts Kapoor of the murder and digs through the suspense of the murder mystery, during which she comes to know that Mira suffers from memory loss.

The trailer then shows flashes of the investigation and the events that occurred over the night of the murder, in between, Kapoor tries to remember the occurrence of events, all in dilemma.
The Netflix drama is a murder mystery with thrilling scenes and action sequences and is intriguing in every sense. 
Meanwhile, speaking about her experience filming ‘The Girl On The Train’, Parineeti told IANS in an interview, “It was an entirely different experience for me as I have never played this kind of a role before. Getting into the character of Mira Kapoor and working closely with (director) Ribhu (Dasgupta) to bring her to life was an immense learning experience for me.”
“As an actor, I have always wanted to challenge myself with more, and this role gave me the opportunity to do so. ‘The Girl On The Train’ will take the audiences on a dark journey trying to piece together the reality of who actually committed the crime and have them guessing the truth,” she added.
The film is an official Hindi remake of the Hollywood thriller The Girl On The Train, which is based on Paula Hawkins’ 2015 bestseller of the same name. The Hollywood version by Tate Taylor featured Emily Blunt in the lead role.
The film was due to release theatrically in May 2020, but got pushed due to the Covid pandemic. It will now premiere on Netflix on February 26.
