To note: After a long time, even though theaters have reopened in India, no great Bollywood film has yet been released at the box office. So in this period, our ticketing review will take into consideration lesser factors that we take under normal conditions.
Our box office review in the current situation doesn’t promise the precision it brings under normal circumstances, as we have no idea how big the release The Girl On The Train would have been had it aired. in theaters on February 26.
Girl on the train ticket office review: expectations
Parineeti Chopra never really tried to follow a single pattern when it came to film selection. Although she has performed with very successful commercial artists like Ishaqzaade, Golmaal Again & Kesari, she has also experimented with films like Hasee Toh Phasee, Shuddh Desi Romance, Meri Pyaari Bindu and more. Few of his experiences turned out to be really successful, but a few managed to reach the right place with part of the audience.
What’s great is that despite several hollows in her career, Parineeti Chopra holds the A-lister position thanks to her acting skills and looks.
Now with The Girl On The Train which is a Hindi film adaptation of Paula Hawkins’ book of the same title, Parineeti Chopra is here. Much like several films in her career, this time again, she chose a film that does not target such a large part of the audience. Not that thrillers and murder mysteries aren’t popular among the masses, they sure are! But the kind of storytelling this one promises doesn’t get bandaged by the crowd.
So the real expectations of The Girl On The Train, had it been released in theaters, wouldn’t have been huge. But since the star cast has a popular face like Parineeti Chopra and even Aditi Rao Hydari has his own face value, it would have generated a good buzz in the business.
Also, in the recent past, similar films like Badla, Kahaani, Pink have performed incredibly well. So The Girl On The Train would definitely come out with some sort of hope.
Train Girl Ticket Review: Impact
In the first 30 minutes of this 120-minute thriller, there are two songs. Why? And there are a few more songs in the rest of the movie. But if we forget the Bollywood stereotype a bit, the movie really works on a lot of things. First of all, despite all the dark undertone of the plot, the movie never looks dull. It’s as entertaining as a movie without the reach of any comedy. So that’s a huge advantage.
The storyline, while not linear, is not confusing and the editing is crisp, so you can stay involved as a viewer. You always want to know what happens next and stay on the edge of your seat or bed no matter what! But I got the impression that Ribhu Dasgupta as a director wouldn’t be able to stop the audience from making the right guess. I mean there are so many details, so many obvious clues that even if you observe it closely you can make the right guess. For my part, I easily guessed half of the suspense. The rest of the part was a shock, but even that part seemed easy to guess if the narrative didn’t try to distract me as a viewer. It also left many answers unanswered.
But overall, it’s a nice watch! The film doesn’t waste your time with a crisp narrative. The suspense might not be great, but it’s not bad either. There will surely be a lot of people who will really appreciate it. Stars like Parineeti Chopra, Aditi Rao Hydari, Avinash Tiwary and Kirti Kulhari all lend very good performances, so the film shines on that aspect for sure.
Train Girl Ticket Review: Final Verdict
In a situation like this, if The Girl On The Train hit theaters on February 26, there would have been an opening somewhere in the 3-4 crore range. With good word of mouth and no competition for at least 2 weeks (Roohi releases March 11), the film would have had a great run at the box office. If it’s not a lot, a 40-45 crore lifetime business was on the cards for this one. He shouldn’t have missed the theatrical release!
