Nice concept with full on entertainment
nikhilsharma-055281 September 2018
For me Stree is worth watching as i have really enjoyed the show.Rajkumar Rao and Pankaj Tripathi again proved themselves as great actors.Though as a viewer i left theatre with so many question marks because at the end you have to use your brain and connect yourself with the story as why this happened and why that happened.But the concept is quite different and i am sure i have never seen anything like this before in bollywood. As in the thought of making a mixture of horror with comedy and then ending with a beautiful message which is actually the wow factor of the movie deserves an applause.Great work Team STREE.

Terrific In Madcap Film
nsanjay-7679531 August 2018
A zany supernatural parable that is both strongly feminist and uproariously funny, Stree, Amar Kaushik's self-assured first feature, delivers shocks and laughs in equal measure. Despite its repeated to-ing and fro-ing between conflicting tones, the horror comedy glides along a firm and steady arc almost all through its runtime of two hours and a bit.

The film's fear quotient, like its comic flourishes, varies pretty wildly - in the climatic moments, it even wobbles just a touch - but the sight of fully grown men cowering in panic at the very mention of the spectral figure who gives the film its title is always hilarious, even when it tilts towards the terrifying.

a good movie but could be better
yamahapic8 December 2018
The story and suspence are good.. the main male artist is very good but shrada is not able to fit in her character...the story is interesting and you expect a very good movie but a certain moment the script takes a twist and spoil the film

Stree ( A ridiculously good film !!)
sanjubhat1 September 2018
Story : The story is set in a small town called Chanderi in MP which is supposedly haunted by an angry female spirit which targets only men during four days of an annual religious festival held there. Whether it is actually a spirit or just an urban legend is the mystery element in the film. Bicky (Rajkumar Rao), the protagonist is the best ladies tailor in town, one who can take measurements of ladies by just glancing at them. He and his "velha" friends Bittu (Aparshakti Khurana) and Jana (Abhishek Bannerjee) get involved in this whole mystery when Bicky meets a mysterious girl Shraddha Kapoor who only comes to Chanderi during the four days of the festival. As men start disappearing from Chanderi, it is upto these three friends along with a bumbling param gyaani Rudra (Pankaj Tripathi) to unravel the mystery.

Review: This is a unique film totally unlike usual horror flicks as it combines multiple genres like comedy, horror & dark humour which is not commonly seen. The blending of comedy in between the horror storyline is perfect and does not look outlandish. It however tones down the impact of the scary scenes. Having said that, the film has its scary moments which are the result of great visual and sound effects.

Casting: The casting is perfect with the three friends along with the bumbling Pankaj Tripathi providing most of the laughs. Shraddha Kapoor provides the mystery element to the storyline as she conveys both innocence and well as a sinister mind at play effectively. Rao and Tripathi are the scene stealers who breeze through their parts with ease. This is a film from Dinesh Vijan's Maddock Films, the makers of the zombie flick Go Goa Gone and they genuinely succeed in making a different film by combining multiple genres without diluting the essence or making the film look tacky.

My Verdict : If you have liked GO Goa Gone , you will definitely like this one. 8 out of 10 from me for this ridiculously genuine attempt by Maddock films at attempting to make something different.

Review Stree Movie
Magow-Intermean31 August 2018
Warning: Spoilers
The quaint town of Chanderi is haunted by a unique legend. The spirit of an angry woman stalks men during a festive period. Chanderi's wonder boy and tailor extraordinaire, Vicky (Rajkummar Rao) falls in love with a mysterious girl (Shraddha Kapoor) who appears only during the four days of the festive season as well. Her disappearing act gets his friends suspicious and they start believing that she could be the Stree haunting the city for long. Horror comedies are a rare offering in Hindi cinema and in that respect, Stree serves up a lot of thrills and spills. The small-town setting aThe funniest character in the film is Pankaj Tripathi's Rudra, a bookshop owner and Mr know-it-all, who guides Vicky and his friends on how to cope with Stree and her haunting act. Tripathi's comic timing is top notch and one of the veritable highlights of the film. nd the many jibes at horror film legends are hilarious. Rajkummar's performance is just as good. He handles the many shades of comedy, horror and romance with great ease. Aparshakti Khurrana and Abhishek Banerjee as the friends offer good comedic punches too. Shraddha Kapoor's character is a bit of an enigma. Even though the role is problematic, the actress does a fine job of maintaining an air of mystery. Stree does fairly well with the comedy, but even with several laugh-out-loud moments. The music of the film is a definite highight.

Pleasantly surprised
Nand2Tetris2 April 2019
I watched this movie solely for its "Naale baa" reference because I grew up in that time and place where this urban legend unfolded. I remember scribbling with a chalk on my door every day to ward away the evil woman who was going to come knocking. It was partly comical and a partly scary time. This movie manages to capture that emotion accurately. The night scenes are unsettling and so are the scenes between the hero and the strange unnamed woman. The scenes of the stree are genuinely scary with very minimal use of CGI. The locations are brilliant and provide the rustic small-town backdrop that the movie needs. It is totally worth a watch.

Not An Exceptional Movie
chhatrasalaryal18 November 2018
I thought the movie to be full of comedy and fun, but I kept on waiting for it and couldn't find it at all. Its neither a proper horror nor a proper comedy movie. Message conveyed in the movie is nice but it doesn't seem enough to make this movie an outstanding one. Hardly there are few punch lines in the movie. Acting wise all the leads have done their best keeping the situation in mind. Overall according to me the amalgamation of horror and comedy couldn't do much wonder.

A good idea gone wrong...silly wasted moments...jarring crude humour...4 stars for the attempt to try something different...45 minutes too long...and what happened to naren, by the way? Nobody seemed to be bothered about him...and does mutton stink? Childish

The best Comedy-Horror movie... Must Watch 200%
anshumanhasurkar8 September 2018
Can you imagine that you can actually laugh in a horror movie? Well yes, I did, a lot. Great screenplay, very well written script & best direction. The best acting by Raj Kumar Rao till date. A complete "paisa vasool" movie.

Most Original Movie of recent times
honeymania2321 November 2018
Finally had the opportunity to see this amazing Indian heartland horror comedy. Due to its very limited release in UK, could not get to watch it in theaters and therefore missed out on experience of big screen. Nevertheless, coming on to the movie, it was a very gripping movie from the word go. The whole mystery angle was presented very sharply with emphasis on the minutest of the details.There was never a dull moment as far as screenplay is concerned. As i read, the story idea has been taken from some incident happened in a south Indian village, but to make a full blown movie out if it and creating such memorable characters does deserve a reward for its creators. The writer/director have very carefully given enough fodder for the sequel, if you observe carefully, and i am really looking forward to it. As far as the performances go, RajKumar Rao has to be said, is the best actor our times. He was flawless in this one, alongside marvelous pankaj tripathi. Even shradhha kapoor did a decent job of her role. Overall it was a great and very satisfying movie experience, which is very rare for a Bollywood movie now a days.

Decent Comedy+Horror movie with Witty dialogues & tight script.
brij-raychanda7 September 2018
From concept itself one feel it should be interesting. Comedy+horror. And it was interesting one.

One of the best movie of this year. And best of year in comic genre till now. Everything in movie was just perfect. Story, Screenplay, performances, Direction, Music, Dialogues.

Rajkumar rao as always did his best. Surprisingly first time I liked performance of Shraddha also. All supporting cast was also done fabulous job.

Funny and quirky dialogues take the movie at such high level.

When name of Duo Raj & DK is there then such movie never disappoints. (Exlude gentlemen movie).

After long time watched such decent comic movie.

Not only waste of time; it deserves worst movie award too!
kk-adroit22 September 2018
This movie at its best is a uselessly coomposed art work. Rao has again done a good job portraiting a typical flippant north indian young man (after Newton) but it is neither going to add value to himself nor to the society. The movie doesn't have head or tail. Why should someone waste so much of effort on a futile idea that is so absurd. On top of that more than six thousand people have given it an imdb rating of greater than 8! It shows where the society is heading to! All the raters are indians; that too speaks of something which better be left un-commented! If you are a sensical person, stay assured, this movie will give you a sick headache. There surely are more interesting and better ways of wasting your time but don't go to watch this movie! It simply doesn't deserve that attention.

Potential to go big!
chaitumhyd18 June 2019
This movie had the potential to go really big. The initial concept and the performances are good. Although, the script is flat at times. There are several loose ends that the story never explains.

I got the feeling that the moral of the story is that "stree", meaning women, deserves the respect of all! There needs to be clarity.

Bollywood needs more movies like this, no propaganda
rupalipawar-8206314 July 2020
We need more movies like this one. I didn't get bored while watching it at all and I would like to watch it multiple times. This movie gives a beautiful message as well. I am so curious and eager to watch its sequel if any.

good
x-0505428 May 2020
The reversal of the ending suddenly sublimates the theme, and the love and respect of the male lead finally let the "heroine" give up the slaughter.
