Mumbai: The audiences who actually enjoy horror films, then the comedy horror flick ‘Stree’ which is based on the Indian urban legend, might actually stand a chance to scare you. The film with it’s unbeatable comic timing is on top.
The Amar Kaushik directorial produced by Dinesh Vijan and Raj Nidimoru and Krishna D.K was released today. It stars Rajkummar Rao and Shraddha Kapoor in lead alongside Pankaj Tripathi, Aparshakti Khurrana, and Abhishek Banerjee in supporting roles.
In the comic revenge drama, and even strangely romantic flick Rajkumar Rao as Vicky, is a young man famed in the region for his exceptional tailoring skills who can stitch ‘lehenga‘ without taking measurement.
Vicky’s two best pals are, Bittu (Aparshakti Khurrana) and Jana (Abhishek Banerjee). Their carefree ways are disrupted when a mysterious, unnamed woman (Shraddha Kapoor) appears from out of the blue and sweet talks Vicky into agreeing to stitch a ‘lehenga’ for her in two days flat.
There is also plenty of comic relief from Pankaj Tripathi’s Rudra, who moves at such an unstoppable pace that you won’t be able to control your reaction. Aparshakti and Abhishek, too, play a great support and do grab your attention with their comic timing.
Rajkummar is too good at physical comedy and acting like a simpleton. His character manages to succeed in evoking a chuckle every time he comes on screen. As Vicky, Rajkummar is effortlessly insouciant, funny and intensely romantic. Shraddha holds same expression throughout, but it’s also because she is not allowed to reveal who she is.
Every single cast member has been given enough space in the story to explore their character. And, all of them are naturally, unashamedly funny.
