Storyline

Another sluggish movie from the Bhatt Camp
15 June 2005 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Nazar is a story of a young and talented pop star Divya ( Meera) who once driving back to home discovers a dead body.Divya goes to check on her and from then on, her life takes a complete turnaround as she starts getting premonitions about impending murders. A serial killer is on the loose who targets mumbai bar girls, Special Investigating Officer Rohan Sethi (Ashmit Patel) is investigating this case.Sethi employs Divya's constant visions and flashbacks to solve his case .

The biggest flaw of nazar, beside the much hyped Pakistani heroine Meera is that it is very predictable. There are many situations in the movie where the audience knows whats gonna happen next.For a movie which counts on its suspense can;t be that predictable right from the start you get a feel of who is gonna be the killer.

Soni Razdan did a decent job in few scenes but they are countable ....a small appearance by Sarita Joshi as a prostitute was brilliant. Same way Neena Gupta did a good enough job.

Soni Razdan failed miserably in terms of script the story line was good enough and had huge scope of making a good thriller like 100 Days but the sloppy direction and some of the worst performances Nazar finds itself hard to survive.

The acting arena was full of useless wrestlers who seemed to gave up right from the first shot. I bet you won't be able to stop laughing if you will see Koel Purie in the climax and the way in which the motive for the killings was explained was hilarious. Meera was a big big disappointment she neither looked god and acting Oh My god she looked very confused in front of the camera. Ashmit Patel was again a set back he did an awful job ,I m not sure of his career in the film industry if he will continue to give performances like these in the future.Aly Khan the doctor was another person whose expressions and dialog delivery style never changed through out the movie he was point black although he is a good actor but i guess Soni Razdan was not able to extract the best out of him.

Overall Nazar goes down as another flops of the Indian film industry and with all the controversy it created before its release this movie is sure a no go. 2/10
