In the very beginning of this movie, a tagline is shown “a Ridiculous Phenomena” and “Ab Mard ko dard Hogaa.” This movie is based on the Real Story “Nale ba” believed in some parts of Andhra Pradesh and Karnataka.
The Film begins with some song, and in the beginning, on the walls of the houses, written in Devanagari “O Stree Kal aana.” Can you imagine that you can actually laugh in a horror movie? Well yes, I did, a lot. Great screenplay & very well written script.
You will get scared and burst into laughter at the same time. It’s not just a mindless or gory comedy, and it’s far better than Hollywood crap we have seen in the name of horror comedies.
Actors are spot on, and all of them fit themselves in a perfect place. Trend is changing now, young India wants better acting and story, not just pretty faces.
Reading the whole story might disappoint your view. An absolute treasure to watch, The best Horror-Comedy Movie of the Year.
The story based in Chanderi, City in Madhya Pradesh. A bride’s wandering spirit roams on the streets for four days during an annual pooja. She calls out to young, unsuspecting men, and if they respond and turn back to see her, she takes it as their acceptance to be with her. Vicky (Rajkummar Rao) is a gifted tailor in this town and he doesn’t believe in this myth. On the first day of pooja, a mysterious young girl (Shraddha Kapoor) approaches him to design her ghagra. She shows interest in him romantically and Vicky falls for him. Vicky tells his friends Jana (Abhishek Banerjee) and Bittu (Aparshakti Khurana) about his love interest. Jana is happy for Vicky but Bittu cautions Vicky to be careful of her. Trouble arises when Bittu analyses the situation and realises that Vicky’s love interest might be none other than Stree. What happens next forms the rest of the film. But the end is an unsolved puzzle, which confuses everyone. I was disappointed with that end but we have to accept it.
Rajkummar Rao gets a chance to dabble in a new genre and he excels thoroughly. He genuinely gives an earnest performance and is a treat to see him getting spooked, delivering monologues and behaving madly in love.
Shraddha Kapoor delivers a fine performance and has a mysterious air about her as per the character’s requirement. In the second half, she gets better.
Aparshakti Khurrana gives a great performance and he doesn’t get overboard. Same goes for Abhishek Banerjee. In fact he’s superb in the last one hour.
Pankaj Tripathi is hardly there in the first half and he rocks big time in the second half. Vijay Raaz (Shastri) leaves a mark in the lone sequence.
On the whole, Must watch movie and it is a certified as 12A. This was an exact horror comedy which has struck right chords. 100% Entertainment Movie.
