Stree movie inches towards Rs 100 crore mark

Rajkummar Rao and Shraddha Kapoor’s film Stree has conquered the box office. The Amar Kaushik-directed movie, on its third week, has collected over Rs 88 crore. The film, which deals with one of the less explored genres in Bollywood, horror-comedy, opened to a positive response on August 31 and minted Rs 17.69 crore in just two days, taking everyone by surprise. The film only saw rise in its business as it earned Rs 13.57 crore on the third day of its release. The word of mouth around the film helped it become one of the biggest weekend openers of the year.

Raj & DK, who are known for their quirky writing, have given the film a perfect blend of comedy and horror. Apart from that, they have intelligently used humour to address the debate over consent, thereby raising consciousness and actively challenging widely-held attitude about gender. The best part about Stree is that it doesn’t look like Rajkummar Rao or Shraddha Kapoor’s film, but every actor’s film who is present in it. From Pankaj Tripathi to Aparshakti Khurana and Abhishek Banerjee, every cast member has been given ample screen time to showcase their potential.
