The Magic Of Stree At The Box Office Continues Success Run

Stree Box Office Success

The film ‘Stree’ is continuing its dream run at the box office, as it crossed the 100-crore mark in its third week. The Shraddha Kapoor, Rajkummar Rao starrer has seen a major growth two weeks since its release.

Dream run

On Saturday, Trade Analyst Taran Adarsh recently tweeted that the film is on the verge of crossing the 100-crore mark. Taran Adarsh tweeted, “While โ‚น 100 cr mark is no longer the yardstick for a filmโ€™s success, it ought to be celebrated when mid-sized films like #SKTKS, #Raazi and #Stree [on the threshold of โ‚น 100 cr] hit century… Reinforces the fact that content is king and the audiences are the kingmakers!”

The film has now set foot in the club soaring high on success.

The horror-comedy, directed by Amar Kaushik, has struck the right chord with both, the audience and the critics. The film, which released on August 31, is still going strong, accumulating a huge audience. It is also the ninth film to enter the 100-crore club this year.

The cast, apart from Rao and Kapoor, features abundant talent with Pankaj Tripathi, Aparshakti Khurana and Abhishek Banerjee in interesting roles.

The film, set in a small town called Chanderi, delivers several punches with a terrific comic timing.ย It revolves around a belief that a mysterious female spirit, called โ€˜Streeโ€™, abducts men leaving behind their clothes. The backdrop is based on a four-day festival each year, in the town, when the ghost appears. The genre, of comedy and horror, ย is interesting not only due to the story itโ€™s offering but also because of living up to the horror standards. It is clever and spontaneous at the same time.

The word of mouth has helped in the film’s growing audience as well. The cast’s individual performances too have seeped into the audience’s mind tremendously.

Between laughs and fear, there’s a touch of gender sensitivity

The film, with an ironic touch, makes men go through the physical and mental trauma that women face in their lives. The writers have, very significantly, weaved gender dynamics and superstition, of small-town, into the storyline. The dialogues have been appealing greatly to audience, touching aspects of present day reality in the country.

Film industry goes Gaga

People from the film fraternity took to social media to express their happiness over the filmโ€™s success. The industry praised the filmโ€™s content and the performances by the actors. Here are some of the tweets:
