Revenge stories have always been a regular plot in Hindi films. For the past 45 years, there have been so many films made on this subject that a book can be published on these films. In Marathi also, we find films being made on this subject. New Marathi film ‘Nazar’, produced under the banner of Vision Arts, also presents one such story where a love story turns into a revenge drama. But due to lack of proper treatment, the film has turned out to be an average film.
A young Talathi Pushkar arrives in a village. He grows close to a good looking blind girl (Teja Deokar) living in the village. He promises to marry her and starts enjoying sex with her. One day, he leaves for his own town, telling the girl that he is going to convince his parents about their marriage. He doesn’t turn up for a long time. The blind girl then comes to know that she has been cheated. She decides to take revenge. She gets operated on, in a nearby place and with the help of the doctor turns into a different avatar. She identifies herself as a writer- Aishwarya Kulkarni and starts playing her plan to trap Pushkar into it.
This film reminds you of the revenge story presented by Hindi film ‘Khoon Bhari Maang’ but the presentation of this film is not up to the mark. Some of the happenings in the film are simply boring. Director Gorakh Jogdande should have edited certain portions of this film, so as to make the film interesting. Teja Deokar has skillfully presented the blind girl and as well as the dashing writer in this film very well. Swapnil Rajshekhar does well in the role of a womanizer.
The film may appeal to rural audiences, but otherwise it lacks the technical aspects to truly thrill.
