The Amar Kaushik directorial has received positive reviews from critics and fans alike.
Anna Vetticad in her review for Firstpost wrote, "Stree is like a blind date that turns out well - a tryst with the unexpected filled with exciting surprises. It is a thought-provoking laughathon-cum-spookathon, and one of the most unusual Bollywood films of the year so far."
The film revolves around the legend of a spirit that visits the town of Chanderi in Madhya Pradesh once a year, and preys on its men for four days. The men disguise themselves as women and write 'O Stree, kal aana' on the walls of their homes to keep themselves safe.
Stree is the ninth film to hit this number in box office earnings along with Padmavaat, Sanju and Gold among others.
