Stree, starring, Rajkummar Rao and Shraddha Kapoor, is making waves on the box office. After a mind-boggling weekend, the film is shinning bright on week days and has now even crossed the 50 crores mark. After a successful sixth day, the film’s total box office collection stands at Rs 54.89 crores. It won’t come as a surprise that in another one week, Stree touches the 100-crore mark. Strong word-of-mouth was already doing wonders for the film that now, the news of its sequel has forced people to go to the theatres and watch the film.
Bollywood trade analyst and critic Taran Adarsh took to his social media to share Rajkummar Rao and Shraddha Kapoor starrer film’s latest collection and wrote, “#Stree is SUPER-STRONG on Day 6... Wed biz is HIGHER than Tue and almost at par with Fri... Truly UNSTOPPABLE... Fri 6.83 cr, Sat 10.87 cr, Sun 14.57 cr, Mon 9.70 cr, Tue 6.37 cr, Wed 6.55 cr. Total: ₹ 54.89 cr. India biz."
On the other hand, Yamla Pagla Deewana Phir Se starring Dharmendra, Sunny Deol and Bobby Deol, which also released this weekend, failed to impress the critics and audience alike. Even legendary actor Dharmendra’s otherworldly charm couldn’t make the film work.
Stree is packed with hilarious lines, smart performances along with spooky undertones. Directed by debutant Amar Kaushik and written by Go Goa Gone fame Raj Nidimoru, Krishna DK, Stree has been produced by Dinesh Vijan. Set in the town of Chanderi, the movie is based on a 'ridiculous' phenomenon in which a spirit named Stree whisks away men during four days of puja. While Rao plays the role of famous tailor Vicky, Shraddha Kapoor is the mysterious girl adding to the eerie atmosphere. The movie also stars Pankaj Tripathi, Vijay Raaz, Atul Shrivastava, Aparshakti Khurrana and Abhishek Banerjee in pivotal roles.
''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 in an interview.
