Ratings:3/5 Review By:Rajeev Masand Site:News 18

It’s not a perfect movie but a very watchable one. The Girl on the Train, adapted from the runaway bestseller by Paula Hawkins, is a reasonably gripping suspense thriller that never quite hits the mark

Ratings:3.5/5 Review By:Gavin Site:TOI

Belonging to the ‘Gone Girl’ zone, where almost every character is deceitful, self-destructive and delusional, this psychological thriller is clearly not everyone’s cup of tea. Taylor sets the mood of his film perfectly but struggles to maintain the tension. His film gets dreary by the time the mystery unfolds, unlike its predecessor (Gone Girl), which makes you hold you nerve throughout. If you like morbid whodunit thrillers that make you feel like you are trapped in a dark room with no glimmer of hope whatsoever; this brutal, twisted and voyeuristic tale is bound to leave you gasping for breath.

Ratings: 2.5 Review By: Hindustan Times

It’s adapted from Paula Hawkins’ popular London-set novel, the success of which was predicated on comparisons to Gillian Flynn’s Gone Girl, a trio of unreliable narrators, all women, and the way it cleverly untwisted female clichés of domestic life: the bitter divorcee (Rachel, played by Emily Blunt), the sexy ‘other woman’ (Megan, Haley Bennett) and the unwitting wife (Anna, Rebecca Ferguson). Tate Taylor’s The Girl on the Train may be technically set in the Westchester suburb of Ardsley-on-Hudson, but its cocktail of commuter trains, marital infidelity and alcoholism make its proper setting Cheever Country.
