And that's a wrap! Thank you for staying with us throughout the investigation.
Directed by Kenneth Branagh, the film features the likes of Dame Judi Dench, Willem Dafoe, Michelle Pfeiffer, Penelope Cruz, Derek Jacobi and Johnny Depp. Branagh, of course, plays Hercule Poirot, "the world's greatest detective". The uber-luxurious Orient Express is stranded in the middle of European nowhere, having run into a snow bank, but the marooned passengers have other things on their mind. One among their number has been murdered and the rest are the suspects.
Despite deviations from the actual storyline, the film is managing to keep the viewers hooked.
#MurderOnTheOrientExpress live tweet review: The second half takes far more liberties than the first half in terms of story line but the script and cast make it work.— Shantanu David (@dilettantediner) November 24, 2017
With so many suspects, the murder investigation just got more interesting.

Half the battle is won when the casting is right.
#MurderOnTheOrientExpress live tweet review:The film's impeccable cast breathes new life into an old classic. Branagh has made some updates to the characters so as to be more attuned to modern sensibilities.— Shantanu David (@dilettantediner) November 24, 2017
There's nothing better than impressive additions to an already rich plot.
#MurderOnTheOrientExpress live tweet review: Branagh, without deviating too much from the essential plot, goes into a wealth of detail that was never there in the book. And it's mostly for the good.— Shantanu David (@dilettantediner) November 24, 2017
