Nazar is a film directed by Soni Razdan starring Meera and Ashmit Patel. It was the first Indo-Pakistani joint movie venture in 50 years. The film introduces Pakistani actress Meera to Bollywood and it also featured a kissing scene (afterwards cut) which was center of attention for the Pakistani government. Nazar was released along with Naina, another film based on the similar theme of extra-sensory perception.
Nazar revolves around a young and talented pop star Divya (Meera). From the start it is obvious the existence of a strange aura surrounding Divya’s personality. She is a girl who has lived a secluded life after the death of her parents in a car crash. After shooting her last video she decides she wants to go home. Along the way, despite the darkness she discovers a dead body on the middle of the road.
From this moment on Divya has visions of the future, rather than an art it becomes like a curse for Divya as all she sees is brutal murders. In her visions all she sees is dance-bargirls being stabbed, strangulated and suffocated to death by a killer whose face continues to elude Divya’s clairvoyance.
Unknowing to her, a policeman, Rohan (Ashmit Patel), is investigating murders of bargirls in the city. A serial killer is on the loose and Rohan has the case to nab him.
Rohan buys Divya’s story (about her visions of murders) but his female assistant Sujata (Koel Purie) does not. Taking help of Divya’s clairvoyance, he begins to zero down on prime suspects that include a doctor, a fugitive and an eccentric-alcoholic uncle who frequents bars regularly.
As the movie progresses, Divya becomes the next on the murders list of the unknown killer who might have been the same who killed the person on the road that she found that night.
In the it turns out that Sujata is the serial killer: her husband slept with a bargirl who passes AIDS to him, who in turn gave the disease to Sujata. From then on, she developed a dislike for the bar girls in the city and goes on a killing spree. She dies at the end by falling off a building.
