The film throughout captures what many individual horror and comedy films couldn’t, our attention!
And that’s how a horror comedy is done!
Genre blending is never easy, especially combining elements of comedy and horror fiction, and to deliver the best of both is another level. But this film does that, achieves a hilariously scary and scarily hilarious combo.
A simple story turned remarkably entertaining by some good choices, one of which was the feel of the film, out and out fun!
A unique fusion of laughter, fear, moral and entertainment!
Watch it If you like -
The Men of Stree are fabulous, Dialogues and performances are the lifeline, Well weighed dose of humor and fear
But Beware of -
A bit unconvincing which is a given considering the genre and hence not applicable

Helmed by debutant Amar Kaushik, along with writer-producer Raj & DK, the film is all fun and cool, but if you realize the difficulty behind making such a simple concept stand out, you will know that Stree is extraordinary even in the ordinary scenes.
Again, all this is owed to the constant quirky feel that oozes out of the film.
Alekh (Story) – Patkatha (Screenplay)
And when we say there is extraordinariness in the ordinary, we mean that everything is simple and unadorned yet so striking.
Be it the story of ghosts, we all have heard of one in our childhood, made into an enjoyable script. Be it the dialogues by Sumit Aroraa, the sentence frame and accent add so much to the dialogues which are fun but also simple.
Be it the feel of the film, you know it is all fiction, yet you are having so much fun. Be it entertainment zone this well-written film puts us in, we feel elated throughout. Be it the underlying moral, common and relevant in present times, but then used and shown in a zany way.
In short, the film joined two genres and made a fab product, way better than many horror or comedy films individually, and so it is kind of a double dose.
The climax is kind of guessable post the interval and yet this small-town ghostly phenomenon makes sure to deliver fun and fear in equal proportions.
Rajkummar Rao, making the right choices with films and delivering the fabulous, is just making us want at least one film from him every week.
Wonderfully supported by Abhishek Banerjee as Jana and Aparshakti Khurrana as Bittu, these two guys were simply amazing.
And welcome the show stopper and stealer, the master of excellent comic timing, Pankaj Tripathi, he is beyond superb. Shraddha Kapoor looked beautiful and was very convincing in the role, she acted beautifully through her eyes.
Geet Sangeet (Music)
Ketan Sodha’s fun and fear background score adds magic to the film.
Songs were nice and aptly used. The last song could have been chopped off, it kind of did ruin the film’s zone.

This Stree is a bowl of Glee.
