Stree is the story of a spirit of a religious woman that comes only during annual puja and hunts men she finds alone. Men walking alone at night are her preys. She calls their names and as soon as the men turn in reply, she jumps on them and disappears leaving their clothes behind.
The story of the hunting Stree
Stree is a horror comedy by Amar Kaushik. It starts Rajkummar Rao and Shraddha Kapoor in lead roles. The story starts with an annual puja festival in a small village in Chanderi, Madhya Pradesh. Every home in the village has a message for the hunting spirit “O StreeKalAana”. It is believed that the spirit turns away after reading the message.
Vicky (Rajkummar Rao) is a village fashion designer expert in the art of designing dresses, especially for women. A very beautiful girl Shraddha Kapoor drops in his shop for designing her lenhga and she convinces the busy designer to deliver the dress before the last four days of the puja. Coincidentally these are the days when the spirit hunts.
The girl keeps meeting Vicky on one pretext on another but never tells her name and nor gives her phone number. Also, she doesn’t enter the temple. Vicky’s close aides Dana (Abhishek Banerjee) and Bittu (AparshaktiKhurrna) become suspicious about the whereabouts of that mysterious girl. They warn Vicky that the girl could be Stree. Vicky blindly in love with that girl refuses their claim. Is he right? Who’s that Stree?
