‘Stree’ Movie Review: Mixing Horror With Comedy Turns Out to be a Successful Experiment!

Rajkummar Rao and Shraddha Kapoor starrer, Stree has released in the theatres. It is a horror comedy film directed by Amar Kaushik and along with Shraddha Kapoor and Rajkummar Rao, the film also features Nora Fatehi, Pankaj Tripathi, and Kriti Sanon. This horror comedy film is winning hearts of the Bollywood fans with its amazing plot. The film has a lot to offer and it is surely very refreshing.  The film sets a very tensed atmosphere from the first scene and you’ll try to figure out what next is going to happen.

The film is based on a tailor who lives in Chanderi. Vicky (Rajkummar Rao) is the name of this tailor and he is very famous in the whole Chanderi for his amazing work. This man won’t even need measuring tapes to take the size of his clients and he seems to be a good and a  gifted tailor. Not only this, but this talented tailor is also known as the Manish Malhotra of Chanderi. Rajkummar Rao completely fits in the role and his on-screen presence gained applauds from the audiences.

The story takes a turn when Stree enters the town. Beware because she’s a witch who targets men at night during the time of a four day annual festival of Hindus. It is said that the witch whisks away the men of Chanderi and leaves behind their clothes. The situation is very tensed in the city but don’t worry because there is also a solution to get away with this witch. Well, the one and only solution for the men of Chanderi to remain safe is to scribble the message ‘O Stree Kal Aana’ on the walls of their homes. Well not only this, but they also say that if by chance she tries to cross your path, you shouldn’t turn back if she calls you from behind.

The story seems really interesting and it turns even more interesting when Rajkummar Rao comes across a mysterious girl (Shraddha Kapoor) and falls for her at the very first sight. The film will take you to an amazing ride filled with romance, drama, comedy, thrill, and suspense. As the time passes and many events occur, Vicky is able to figure out who Stree is. Well, if you are thinking it’s Shraddha Kapoor, then you are completely right. Shraddha Kapoor turns out to be Stree as this girl visits Chanderi every year but only during these four days.

Amar Kaushik has surely done a great job by mixing horror with comedy which is gaining immense appreciation from the Bollywood fans. He perfectly mixes all the elements and presents all of it in a very unique and organized way. Full marks for this amazing direction as he completely succeeds in keeping the audiences involved in this horror comedy film.

He is a treat to watch on the big screen and his timing has been just amazing throughout the film. The character of Vicky was very well received by the audiences and succeeds in winning the hearts of many Bollywood fans. Shraddha Kapoor’s on-screen presence was also immensely appreciated by the Bollywood fans and she was really amazing in this mysterious character. The suspense behind her existence in the film will definitely surprise you and she is definitely going to keep you engaged throughout the film.
