The first teaser of Netflix India’s latest thriller 'The Girl on the Train' offers a glimpse into the world of an alcoholic, paranoid divorcee, played by Parineeti Chopra.

The teaser follows Parineeti’s character, Meera Chopra, grappling with a murder mystery that sets in motion her slow descent into madness.

The official synopsis reads, “A bright city, a dull morning and a curious girl on the train. When a voyeuristic divorcee fixates on the lives of a perfect couple from afar, she soon gets embroiled in a murder mystery that unfolds revealing truths about her own life.”

Directed by Ribhu Dasgupta, the film is an adaptation of Paula Hawkins’ 2015 bestseller novel of the same name. It is set to premiere on February 26.



Director  Dasgupta said in a statement: “I always wanted to explore this genre and loved this unique story. There is plenty to relate to both in terms of the emotions and mysteries that I was able to delve into in this thriller – rejection, loneliness, voyeurism, daily commutes on which we see and don’t see things.”

British actor Emily Blunt previously played the protagonist, Rachel, in a 2016 Hollywood adaptation that received mixed reviews.

Shibasish Sarkar, group chief executive officer, Reliance Entertainment said: “The Girl On The Train marks our first film collaboration with Netflix, with many more to come. We are very excited about this suspense thriller, Ribhu’s directorial sensibilities and the extremely talented cast.”
