Stree (2018) is a Comedy/ Horror movie. In the small town of Chanderi, the menfolk live in fear of an evil spirit named “Stree” who abducts men in the night. Based on the urban legend of “Nale Ba” that went viral in Karnataka in the 1990s. The concept is quite unique and indifferent. The very blend of horror with comedy and of course the ending with a beautiful message makes this movie stand out. Also, the fact that Shraddha Kapoor playing the main character was once almost caught as the ghost and later she managed to keep her cover until the ending of this movie made it a hit for me. Also the fact that she herself asked the hero to kill her and finish of the chapter made me think for a while that she was truly in love with that human. What followed later was even better. Now without giving away the rest, I would like to conclude that this is a must-watch for both horror and comedy film lovers and even the ones that do not like watching those genres at all!
