0

Stree (English: Woman) is a 2018 Indian comedy horror film directed by Amar Kaushik and produced by Dinesh Vijan and Raj Nidimoru and Krishna D.K. under the banner of Maddock Films in association with D2RFilms. It is based on the Indian urban legend, Nale Ba, about a witch who knocks on people’s doors at night. Stree stars Rajkummar Rao and Shraddha Kapoor. Pankaj Tripathi, Aparshakti Khurrana, and Abhishek Banerjee appear in supporting roles. The film was theatrically released on 31 August 2018 to positive reviews.

The plot is based on the Indian folk legend about a witch who abducts men at night when they are alone and only leaves their clothes behind. The residents of a town named Chanderi believe in the spirit of an angry woman, referred to as “Stree”, who stalks men and whisks them away during the four days of a religious festival every year, causing many disappearances over the years. To protect the residents from her wrath, “O Stree, come tomorrow” is written in Hindi (ओ स्त्री, कल आना) with bat’s blood on the entrances of all homes and men are advised to not roam alone after 10 pm during the festive season, and move in groups for safety – a parallel of instructions women are usually told to follow for their own safety.

Vicky (Rajkummar Rao), a ladies’ tailor in Chanderi, mysteriously encounters an unnamed charming woman, (Shraddha Kapoor) who only comes to the town during the annual Pooja season and falls in love with her at first sight. She asks him to stitch her a lehanga. Her frequent disappearances, her shopping list including peculiar items such as a lizard’s tail, white cat’s fur, flowers of Datura, meat, brandy and such like presumed to be ingredients for black magic and the fact that she is not seen by anybody except Vicky, makes his friend Bittu (Aparshakti Khurana) suspicious, and he starts believing that she could be Stree. After one of his friends, Janna (Abhishek Banerjee), is kidnapped by Stree, Vicky grows suspicious of the woman as well. He confronts her on which she disappears yet again.

They decide to find a way to save their friend and ask the town’s librarian Rudra Bhaiya (Pankaj Tripathi) for help, who is also a paranologist. In Rudra’s book shop, they come across a partially torn book titled “Chanderi Puran” in his library which mentions Stree’s story and an old fort which Vicky claims he has seen when he was on a date with Gayatri. Vicky, Bittu, and Rudra then visit the old fort, which Stree is supposedly inhabiting, to find Janna. Stree drives away Bittu and Rudra and is about to attack Vicky but does not, as she senses the feeling of love and respect in his eyes. She is then driven away by Gayatri’s spell. Gayatri reveals later that she has been trying to defeat ‘Stree’ for the last three years after losing someone close to her and that is why she comes to the town only during the festive season. This clarifies that Gayatri & Stree are two different persons. Stree releases Janna as requested by Vicky the same night, however, he starts having sporadic violent episodes. More men go missing after a possessed Janna, under Stree’s control, erases the word “Tomorrow” (कल) from the protective phrases outside everyone’s homes, leaving it as “O Stree, come”; (ओ स्त्री, आना) an invitation.
