    “Shortest completed Test match since 1935” The England team hit rock-bottom in the ongoing Test against India at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. After making 112 in the first innings and restricting India to 145, the visitors just couldn’t cope with the spin were bowled out for their lowest Test score against India - a measly 81 runs.

    Yahoo Detailed Review: The Girl on the Train

    Cast: Parineeti Chopra Aditi Rao Hydari Kirti Kulhari Director - Ribhu Dasgupta Release date - 26 February, 2021 Parineeti Chopra is ‘The Girl on the Train’. The film is a thriller adapted from a novel of the same name. Is this adaptation as engrossing as the American one in which Emily Blunt had played the lead? Parineeti plays Mira Kapoor - once a successful lawyer - now divorced and an alcoholic. She regularly blacks out after binge drinking and has trouble remembering recent events when she is sober. She’s accused of frequently harassing her ex-husband. She also, no longer has a job and seems to be finding it difficult to handle her addiction. Mira, on her commute, sees a couple every day and they seem to have the perfect life - a life that she once had or could have had. When Nusrat - the girl - Mira watches every day goes missing - a needle of suspicion points at her. Why would Mira want Nusrat gone? That’s what the police are trying to find out For those of you who have read the novel or watched the previous adaptation - this story is supposed to play out like a psychological thriller. As a part of the audience you are at times convinced that ‘the girl on the train’ is most likely the killer, while at other times she comes across as a soft target. It is frustrating that her actions seem to incriminate her when you so desperately want her to be proved innocent…. Parineeti fails to internalize the chaos that is going on within the girl - the guilt, the conflict, the disbelief and the basic instinct for survival where she wants to believe and prove she’s innocent. I remember the vacant look in Emily Blunt’s eyes and her struggle to remember what actually happened - Parineeti as the staggering Mira is over-the-top. Your heart doesn’t go out to this protagonist… The writing and screenplay is shoddy and doesn’t have the tension needed to keep the audience hooked. A alleged killer has escaped, is on the loose and is roaming about freely doing their own investigation - how do you make allowance for such lapses? The supporting cast also fails to make their performance memorable. I was really hoping for an edge-of-the-seat thriller but the ‘Girl on the Train’ disappoints on too many counts. I am going with 2 stars for this one. For more videos and reviews subscribe to our channel on YouTube
