Roohi's plot vs Stree's plot

As mentioned earlier, Roohi has been helmed by the hit horror-comedy team of Stree. Stree revolved around a village where every year, men get kidnapped by a woman’s spirit known as Stree. Soon, Rajkummar Rao, Shraddha Kapoor, and some of Rao’s friends along with Pankaj Tripathi begin investigating this mystery. Stree was one of the most successful films of 2018. Coming back to Roohi, the film revolves around a ghost named Afza who captures brides on their honeymoon. In the film, Rajkummar Rao and Varun Sharma’s characters kidnap Janhvi Kapoor a.k.a. Roohi. But soon, Roohi becomes possessed by Afza’s spirit. It will be interesting to see how Roohi performs at the box-office considering these mixed reviews the film has received.
