The trailer for the horror movie, Stree has been released. The movie is directed by Amar Kaushik, and stars Rajkummar Rao and Shraddha Kapoor. It is going to be released on Augusat 31 2018. The movie is based on the legend of Nale Ba, which is popular because of the belief that a witch roams the streets, and knocks on the door of the people, and speaks to them in the voice of their kin. If the person opens the door, they die. The trailer is interesting mix of horror and suspense, and it seems that Shraddha Kapoor has finally taken a role that she can sink her teeth into.
Rajkummar Rao, as usual, looks impressive in his role, as does, Pankaj Tripathi. Horror movies in India have not been successful because most filmmakers don’t know how to handle the tone of the plots, that get increasingly unhinged and strange. But, after Pari, starring Anushka Sharma, which wasn’t as successful because of gory and controversial content, it seems that Bollywood movies are embracing more atmospheric path for telling horror stories on the big screen.
The first poster for the movie also gives hints about the movie, with Shraddha and Rajkummar in the centre of the frame, with a large moon looming behind them, and Pankaj Tripathi and other supporting characters looking at them from the edge.
