Critical reception[edit]

Rohit Vats of Hindustan Times gave the film a rating of 3 out of 5 saying that, "It’s a faithful remake of Oculus and can make your hair stand at times. Hindi filmmakers rarely achieve such finesse in mostly predictable paranormal stories."[10] Meena Iyer of The Times of India gave the film a rating of 2.5 saying that, "This one had the potential to be more, but it seems so stretched that you are almost willing to tear the screen yourself and attempt to silence someone."[11] Rohit Bhatnagar of Deccan Chronicle gave the film a rating of 3 out of 5 saying that, "On the whole, Dobaara is engaging and definitely not avoidable."[12] Prasanna Zore of Rediff gave the film a rating of 2 out of 5 and said that, "Watch Dobaara only if you have the guts to overcome, not fear, but boredom."[13] Saibal Chatterjee of NDTV gave the film a rating of 2 out of 5 saying that, "While Dobaara: See Your Evil isn't half as messy as all those grisly ghosts-and-ghouls flicks that Bollywood foists upon us, it isn't a spine-chiller either."[14] Bollywood Hungama gave the film a rating of 2 out of 5 saying that, "On the whole, the essence of Dobaara: See Your Evil being a psychological thriller set in the horror genre doesn’t come across and is limited to a few scenes."[15] Anupama Chopra of Film Companion gave the film a rating of 2 out of 5 and said that, "Dobaara is too silly to be scary."[16]
