Rajkummar Rao starrer Stree earned Rs 6.37 crore on Tuesday, taking the total collection to Rs 48.34 crore. Trade analyst Taran Adarsh has termed the film a superhit, despite facing a competition from Yamla Pagla Deewana Phir Se.
The horror comedy has been able to strike a chord with the audience and it seems the film is here to stay.
In a series of tweets, Taran mentioned, “#Stree is SENSATIONAL… Has cast a spell at the BO… Day 5 [Tue] – working day – was the true test for #Stree… ROCK-SOLID biz on Day 5 proves it’s not in a mood to slow down… Fri 6.83 cr, Sat 10.87 cr, Sun 14.57 cr, Mon 9.70 cr, Tue 6.37 cr. Total: ₹ 48.34 cr. India biz.”
“#Stree will cruise past ₹ 50 cr mark today [Day 6; Wed]… Trending is better than #SKTKS [Week 1: ₹ 45.94 cr] and #Raazi [Week 1: ₹ 56.59 cr]… Will it breach ₹ 100 cr mark? Depends on how it fares in Week 2… It’s a wait-and-watch situation right now,” he added.
Not just in India, the film is doing well abroad too. Taran shared figures of Stree’s overseas business.
He shared, “#Stree has won over audiences in desh as well as videsh… Let’s compare it with Rajkummar Rao’s previous movies in Australia…#BareillyKiBarfi *lifetime biz* A$ 60,767. #FanneyKhan *lifetime biz* A$ 58,673. #Stree *weekend + Mon biz* A$ 63,353… Crossed *lifetime biz* @comScore”
The Indian Express film critic Shubhra Gupta mentioned in her review, “Shraddha Kapoor’s part is a bit risible, but she has some breathy moments with Rajkummar Rao. Rao, whose Bicky seems like an extension of his Bareilly Ki Barfi avatar, carries the film.”
Stree, produced by Dinesh Vijan, was written by filmmakers Krishna DK and Raj Nidimoru. The movie also stars Aparshakti Khurrana and Abhishek Banerjee.
