Evil Eye is a 2020 American horror film directed by Elan and Rajeev Dassani and written by Madhuri Shekar, based on her Audible Original audio play of the same name.

Evil Eye is produced by Priyanka Chopra and has the ‘Evil’ bit put across lightly! The story of the movie was revealed in the trailer itself. An Indian woman named Usha Kharti (Sarita Choudhury) from Delhi is concerned for her daughter’s future, Pallavi (Sunita Mani). By future, we mean her marriage. While Usha and her husband Krishnan (Bernard White) live in Delhi, their daughter resides in New Orleans. But they always keep in touch and give updates about each other’s life via phone/video calls. On the calls, superstitious Usha reminds her daughter to wear the ‘evil eye’ bracelet always to keep her away from harmful energies. Evil Eye means buri nazar in Hindi.

Pallavi is 29 years old and that becomes a big concern for Usha. Her daughter’s cousin, who is younger than her, is all set to get ‘settled’. But destiny has its plans for Pallu as she. Due to some reasons, she believes that the man her daughter is dating is the reincarnation of her abusive lover who died 30 years ago. The story has well-known actors, suspense and superstitions to keep everyone glued. We get to see Usha’s superstitious side. Welcome To Blumhouse promised us this as a horror movie but it seem nostalgic. Usha is a well-written character as she is far too superstitious. As an Indian mother, she is very protective of her daughter.

Evil Eye stars Sarita Choudhury who is brilliant as Usha. The actress captured the essence of every Indian mother who is caring, overprotective and also paranoid. Sunita Mani as Pallavi Kharti is another aptly written character. Sunita does a wonderful job in portraying a daughter who keeps listening to her mother’s concern and calls her out when things go wrong.  Actors Omar Maskati and Benard White play their role well as Sandeep and Krishnan. Evil Eye presents Pallavi and Usha who are in two different parts of the world. The camera captures their chemistry to perfection.

Evil Eye misses the evil part in it. The performances are good, and the story is interesting.

Evil Eye releases on 13 October ,2020.
