The Train is a 1970 Indian Hindi-language thriller film starring Rajesh Khanna and Nanda. The film was declared hit at the box office.[1] Khanna stars as Police Inspector Shyam Kumar who sets out to solve a series of murders which have all taken place on a train. Complicating the situation are his girlfriend Neeta (Nanda), who has been acting mysteriously ever since she began her new job, and hotel dancer Miss Lily (Helen), who needs to seduce the good police inspector but may find that she loses her heart instead.This movie was co-produced by Rajendra Kumar and it was Nanda who suggested Rajendra to cast Rajesh Khanna in the main lead.[2]This film is counted among the 17 consecutive hit films Rajesh Khanna between 1969 and 1971, by adding the two hero films Marayada and Andaz to the 15 consecutive solo hits he gave from 1969 to 1971.[3]

It is the remake of the 1967 Malayalam movie Cochin Express starring Prem Nazir which was subsequently remade in 1968 in Kannada as Bangalore Mail , in Telugu as Circar Express and in Tamil as Neelagiri Express.

All of the above took inspiration from 1940 Hollywood film Midnight Limited
