Amar Kaushik, the director of the horror comedy Stree, won the Best Debut Director award at the Star Screen Awards recently. Starring Rajkummar Rao and Shraddha Kapoor in the lead, the film also won the Best Film award.

He makes deadpan look like the best form of comedy, and with amazing ease, he holds his own in the midst of the younger crowd. He refers to his establishment as “Pusthakaalay”, and not ‘shop’. Later, we come to know in a passing reference that the so-called pusthakaalay, once upon a time, used to be a hub of pornographic novel lovers.
