Mira Kapoor was a popular lawyer. She is happily married and is about to have a kid. But, an accident turned her life upside down and she became an alcoholic, who also suffers from amnesia. During her regular train journey, Mira comes across a beautiful house and Nusrat. One day, Nusrat is dead and some marks of Mira are found near the place where Nusrat is found dead. Who killed Nusrat? Was Mira involved in the crime? The answers form the rest of the story.

Star Performance

Parineeti is okayish with her performance. Yet, she could have tried better. Kirti Kulhari is good in her role and Aditi did her best in the available screen time. Avinash and Tota did what is required.


The story is already filmed in English in the same name and Emily Blunt did the lead role a few years ago. Most of the remakes compel the stars to better up the performance that of the original version. This pressurizes the stars and sometimes it works out positively and many stars had excelled than the original. But, we can’t expect this always and that’s the case here. However, the stars are rightly placed and they did justice. Ribhu’s direction is good to an extent. The supporting characters are well-made and give full support to the lead character and the story. The BGM is good and the songs are average. The production values are decent.

What’s There?

  • The story is good
  • Some good performances impress

What’s Not There?

  • The songs should have been better


With a good story, star cast and decent direction, the film make the audience have a one-time watch! If you are a mystery thriller movie fan, you can try this!
