Stree, starring Rajkummar Rao and Shraddha Kapoor is a horror comedy directed by Amar Kaushik under the banner of Maddock Films in association with D2RFilms. The film has raced ahead of its competition Yamla Pagla Deewana Phir Se on an opening day. Stree surpasses the expectations and estimations and posts a superb number on Day 1, having raked in around Rs 6.82 crore.
Interestingly, the third part of the Yamla Pagla Deewana franchise boasts of a bigger star cast – Dharmendra, Sunny Deol and Bobby Deol, with special appearances by Salman Khan, Rekha and Sonakshi Sinha.
Stree, an out and out entertainer, could be a pathbreaking film for Bollywood horror comedies. The genre is yet to be exploited by Indian filmmakers with Rohit Shetty’s ‘Golmaal Again’ (despite its good box-office performance) and Abhay Deol starrer ‘Nanu Ki Janu’ failing miserably.
The men in the film steal the show with their amazing performances. It shouldn’t come as a surprise that Rajkummar Rao is outstanding in his portrayal of a village boy, who thinks that with a pair of headphones and a 4G connection, he is modern. But that doesn’t stop him from falling head-over-heels in love with the first girl he meets. Shraddha Kapoor, too, manages to pull off her role of a girl with no name, faltering only at places.

Certainly, Stree deserves a watch for its humorous content and the concept that will keep haunting you for long.
