Rajkummar Rao and Shraddha Kapoor starrer 'Stree' continues to create magic at the box office and has seen an upward growth, with fans rushing to the theatres ever since the first day of its release. The horror-comedy seems to have hit the right chord with the audience as well as the critics. Although, the film released during a non-holiday, 'Stree' has performed beyond expectations. It has been two weeks since the film's release, and the film is still going strong at the box office with the audience flocking to watch the horror-comedy.
After collecting Rs. 60.39 crores in its first week, and another 11.41 crores in the previous week, the film has finally crossed the 100 crore mark in its third week. Taking to the micro-blogging site, Twitter, the trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted, "While ₹ 100 cr mark is no longer the yardstick for a film’s success, it ought to be celebrated when mid-sized films like #SKTKS, #Raazi and #Stree [on the threshold of ₹ 100 cr] hit century... Reinforces the fact that content is king and the audiences are the kingmakers!"
Here's the tweet!
The film 'Stree' is set in a small town called Chanderi, where the residents have a belief that a mysterious woman abducts men leaving behind their clothes. Despite the gritty situation that the film is based on, it delivers several punches and critics have appreciated the comic timing. The film revolves around the ghost called 'Stree' haunting the town, who snatches men, during a four-day festival each year, and leaves their clothes behind. The director has taken the unbeaten path of mixing horror with humour juxtaposing each scary scene with a funny moment to lighten the mood. Along with Rajkummar Rao and Shraddha Kapoor, the film stars Pankaj Tripathi, Aparshakti Khurana, Abhishek Banerjee, and Vijay Raaz.
