Rajkummar Rao and Shraddha Kapoor starrer Stree is riding on positive reviews and audience response. It has earned an impressive Rs 32.07 crore in three days. The movie was expected to run in the shadow of Dharmendra, Sunny Deol and Bobby Deol starrer Yamla Pagla Deewana: Phir Se. But Stree has subverted the expectations and absolutely demolished the competition. In comparison, Yamla Pagla Deewana: Phir Se has earned a paltry Rs 6.32 crore.
Talking about the success of Stree, producer Dinesh Vijan said, “We expected to open well as the entire campaign got a fantastic response and we were confident that the audiences would love the film. But this kind of love and appreciation is overwhelming! This year has been super for the industry and I am elated that Stree could be part of it.”
Stree received a positive review from The Indian Express film critic Shubhra Gupta. She wrote, “Stree is enjoyable for the most part. I particularly liked its cheerfully hare-brained spirit, which the director manages to sustain. Kapoor’s part is a bit risible, but she has some breathy moments with Rao. The three fellows feel like real friends, not just brought together by a casting director, and both Khurrana, who is sprouting from everywhere these days, and Banerjee do a good job of looking scared and foolish at the same time. Rao, whose Bicky seems like an extension of his Bareilly Ki Barfi avatar, carries the film: as a ‘ladies tailor’ whose eye is enough to take the measure of the woman in front of him, gently, he is terrific.”
