There are certain things in the
film that make it difficult for the audience to connect with it. The film is based on the London atmosphere and living conditions, so Indian viewers are unable to connect with it. At the same time, English is used in many dialogues of the film, which do not mix with the feel of the Indian audience. Despite having so many characters in the film, no character is worth remembering.
Watch the film or not
. The climax of the film is undoubtedly difficult to think because one important thing related to it is shown at the end of the film itself. By the way, if you have read Paula Hawkins’s book The Girl on the Train, or have seen the Hollywood version of it, don’t take the risk of watching this film. On the other hand, if you have not done both of these things, then you can muster the courage to watch a 120-minute film for once.
