Indiatvnews.com's movie critic writes, ''Stree is engaging and it never gets stretched and clumsy. The movie airily goes on treating you with witty one liners and hilarious dialogues. Sumit Arora has to get the credit. From Aadhaar link to peahen reproducing from tears (the most mocked statement of 2017), dialogue writer has done a phenomenal job. Besides the setting of a small town with those blue painted wooden windows, narrow lanes and clustered houses have been well captured by cinematographer, Amalendu Chaudhary. Stree is well-written and despite its absurdities, it triggers good laughter. Amar Kaushik definitely needs an applause for helming such an entertaining watch. It is a 'paisa-vasool'.''

''Stree is a new experience for me. I've been doing very serious films like Omerta, Aligarh and Newton. But then I had fun doing Bareilly Ki Barfi and Fanney Khan where there were lots of laughs to lean on. Stree has just a bit of the spooky feeling and loads of laughter. It was fun to do. This is director Amar Kaushik's first feature. And the film is produced by Raj and DK who have directed one of my favourite horror comedies Go Goa Gone,'' Rao said.
