Eagoler Chokh (Bengali: ঈগলের চোখ ; English: Eyes of Eagle) (Alternatively known as Goenda Shabor: Eagoler Chokh) is a 2016 Indian Bengali-language crime thriller film directed by Arindam Sil. It is the sequel to 2015 film Ebar Shabor and the second installment of Goenda Shabor film series. The film is based on a story of same name, written by Shirshendu Mukhopadhyay.
ACP Shabor Dasgupta (Saswata Chatterjee) and his assistant Nanda go on a hunt, searching for a young woman murderer. Trapped in a maze of lies and deceit, Dasgupta suspects the rich entrepreneur Bishan Roy (Anirban Bhattacharya) and three women connected to him.
