  • The film stars Shraddha Kapoor and Rajkummar Rao and releases on August 31

Maddock films released the teaser of Shraddha Kapoor and Rajkummar Rao’s upcoming film ‘Stree’ on Wednesday, June 6. The one-minute long teaser is spooky enough to give you goosebumps. The teaser and poster for the movie were released on June 6 on several social media platforms. The teaser begins with the audio of a man screaming in a monotonous tone, ‘oye stree, kal aana. Oye stree, yaha koi mard nahi” (Oh  Lady, come tomorrow. Oh Lady, there are no men here).

The audience is taken through a lane devoid of people, probably because it is late in the night. Each wall reads ‘oh stree ,kal aana’ (Oh Lady, come tomorrow), which is painted on the walls in red. The audience is finally led to a wall near the gate of some kind of institution or the house of someone important. The wall reads, ‘Oh stree, 31 August ko aana’ (Oh lady, come on 31 August) with the shadow of a woman slowly creeping up on the wall.  Towards the end, as the frame zooms out, the feet of a woman can be seen hanging in the air, suggesting a murder or a suicide attempt. 

The poster of the film has a woman clad in a red saree with her face covered by the pallu of the saree (as is the tradition in several North Indian households) giving us an idea that the story is based somewhere in the North of the country. In the poster, the woman is standing alone, with her feet not touching the ground, in the center of a creepy lane, late at night.

To make things more suspicious there is a missing people’s poster on the wall on the left side of the woman. Interestingly enough, there are only photos of men on the list and most of them are dressed in suits, overdressed to be belonging from the streets shown in the poster. Also, it connects with what the man says at the beginning of the teaser, about men not being in this area. There is a strong light coming from an unknown source which is helping cast an impactful shadow of the woman.

The film is directed by Amar Kaushik and produced by Dinesh Vijan and is slated to release on August 31.
