Parineeti Chopra plays Mira Kapoor, a twisted, tragic figure who is unable to differentiate between her desire for and jealousy of another woman’s life— that of Nusrat, played by Aditi Rao Hydari. Nusrat’s murder and Mira’s amnesia concoct an investigative thriller. Kirti Kulhari plays the investigating officer, and in this triage of women— one murdered, one suspect, one investigating— the brittle grey landscape of Britain comes alive. The curious trinity of religion too plays out— one Muslim, one Hindu, one Sikh, embroiled in a foreign land.
Based on the 2015 bestselling namesake book by Paula Hawkins, its 2016 American film adaptation starred Emily Blunt.
Directed by Ribhu Dasgupta (Te3n, Bard of Blood), also starring Avinash Tiwari, and Tota Roy Chowdhury, the film releases on February 26th
