SYNOPSIS
Based on an urban legend in Chanderi, Stree is set in a town where everyone is familiar with the fables of a strange woman who calls men by their name and abducts them, leaving their clothes behind. Nobody knows any facts - and those who are abducted seldom show up to tell stories but the fear is palpable. Everybody diligently makes sure the inscription O Stree, Kal Aana (O Woman, Come Tomorrow) is written on their walls, and at night try and stay indoors.

Verdict: The wonderful medley of characters brings life to an interesting story. Rarely have we seen a Bollywood movie that both makes us laugh and scares us out of our wits.Bhool Bhulaiyaadid it in 2007 and 11 years later, we`ve finally found another horror comedy that lives up to the genre.StreebyAmar Kaushikis based on an urban Indian legend about a bridal ghost who roams around the... ...Read full review
Stree is a tour de force enlivened enormously by solid contributions from each and every technical department and the superlative turns from the principal actors. The cast is led admirably well by the splendid Rajkummar Rao and that man for all seasons who invariably seems to be a step ahead of the demands of the screenplay - the magnificently malleable Pankaj Tripathi. ...Read full review
Stree is enjoyable for the most part. Shraddha Kapoors part is a bit risible, but she has some breathy moments with Rajkummar Rao. Rao, whose Bicky seems like an extension of his Bareilly Ki Barfi avatar, carries the film. ...Read full review
Based loosely on an urban legend from Bangalore, it is a potentially hilarious setup, and Kaushik has a solid cast with Rajkummar Rao as Viki, flanked by Aparshakti Khurana and Abhishek Banerjee as his two buddies, but despite the immediate likeability of these performers playing off one another with small-town gusto, Stree doesnt bring down the house. The dialogues dont do justice to the absurdity of the situations, and the lines feel sometimes too basic which is less evident when greats like Pankaj Tripathi and Vijay Raaz show up. The laughs are inconsistent, and despite a breezy-ish momentum, the plotting feels sloppy and rushed. The ideas are fine, but the writing needed work. ...Read full review
Rajkummar is too good at physical comedy and acting like a simpleton. His character manages to succeed in evoking a chuckle every time he comes on screen. As Vicky, Rajkummar is effortlessly insouciant, funny and intensely romantic. There is also plenty of comic relief from Pankaj Tripathis Rudra, who moves at such an unstoppable pace that you wont be able to control your reaction. Aparshakti and Abhishek, too, play a great support and do grab your attention with their comic timing. Shraddha holds same expression throughout, but its also because she is not allowed to reveal who she is. Stree is a movie anyone can enjoy, but only if they can compromise on the horror part. ...Read full review
This literate, obedient, stupid spook and the equally dimwitted townsfolk are the subject of director Amar Kaushik`s Stree written by Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK (credited as Raj and DK) who have so far directed the brilliant yet unassuming, highly under-recognised Shor In The City (2011) and the wacko zombie comedy Go Goa Gone (2013) with Saif Ali Khan, among other films. If you have seen Shor and GGG you might understand why and how the crazy idea for Stree might have come to Raj and DK. These gentlemen are clearly not interested in the straight and wide path. Ergo: when they do horror, don`t go expecting Bhoot. So if GGG was nutty and over the top, with Stree they have managed to be nutty, hilarious, ridiculous, scary to the point of being terrifying in places, feminist, secular and political in various ways, wistful, and just all-round rollicking fun. Did I say hilarious? Ya well, let me say it again. ...Read full review
Rajkummar Rao and Pankaj Tripathi are brilliant, Shraddha Kapoor has deliberately kept iced, while Abhishek Banerjee and Aparshakti Khurana are perfect for the part. One also must mention Atul Srivastava, who essays the role of Vickys father. Well, he is very effective in the scenes that he is in and I am sure will create the required impact. ...Read full review
