Film Review: Nazar Andaaz (2022)

Sudhir is blind since he was a child. He is a singer and his housekeeper Bhavani serves him for a few years. One day, he befriends Ali, a thief who broke into his house the previous night; and willingly allows him to live with him under one condition that he won’t commit theft again.

Nazar Andaaz is a dramedy that wants us to go deep into the eyes of the blind and feel his life. As much as I want to understand Sudhir, the trouble is the annoying chemistry between Bhavani and Ali who are on each other’s nerves to earn trust of Sudhir. The film wasted plenty of time on their lame humor and reduced the deserving minutes of Sudhir that could have filled more detailing about his work and the past.

The writing of the film did allow the audience to melt at some sequences where Sudhir meets an old flame and then visits his childhood home. The film’s only element that is praiseworthy is Kumud Mishra as Sudhir. This was one incredible performance of a blind person. I have never watched any role of a blind giving the most accurate facial detailing as Kumud did in the film. This was a meticulous physical effort by Kumud. I feel sorry for him that such a performance goes wasted in a film that deserved better quality writing.

Divya Dutta and Abhishek Banerjee are badly wasted. Nazar Andaaz is nazar andaaz-ed by its aesthetics. Watch the film only for one of the best performances of the year by Kumud Mishra.

RATING: 4/10
