Publisher's Summary

Buri Nazar is an Audible Original thriller starring Sayani Gupta, Rithvik Dhanjani, and Supriya Pathak Kapur. Usha (Supriya Pathak Kapur) is convinced that the Evil Eye, a curse that brings continuous misfortune, was cast upon her daughter, Pallavi (Sayani Gupta), in the womb. What else could have possibly left her driven, career-oriented daughter edging closer and closer to 30 without a prospective husband? Determined to set Pallavi on the right path, Usha arranges date after date with potential suitors, but after yet another setup fails, it seems her efforts are proving fruitless. But in an unexpected turn of events, Pallavi becomes her own matchmaker when she meets and quickly falls for Sandeep (Rithvik Dhanjani), a young Indian-American entrepreneur. And though she expects her mother will be elated with her finally finding a man, Pallavi is distraught and confused to find her mother growing increasingly suspicious of Sandeep’s motives…and his true identity. 

Told through a series of phone calls and voicemails, this Audible Original penned by award-winning playwright Madhuri Shekar, and adapted into Hindi by Noopur Sinha, transitions seamlessly from a light-hearted family dramedy to an unexpectedly supernatural thriller. With an endearing cast of well-rounded characters, sharp, natural dialogue, and a shocking edge-of-your-seat climax, Buri Nazar is a can’t-miss tale about cultural miscommunications, family secrets, and the lingering echoes of trauma.

Better than the original

Outstanding performances overall and special mention to Rithvik's small but mighty impactful role. Having heard the original was fairly aware of what was to be expected but somehow this version took it to a whole new level. Amazing direction as well.

Compelling story-telling

Nice story, albeit on the subject I personally don't believe in. Narration was amazing, especially Supriya Pathak.

Why make the plot predictable?

Superb voice overs. Excellent dialogues. Charming concept. Easy and unpretentious language. And yet, the plot chose to remain predictable... I mean, why could the story not have tilted towards a better solution? No, I'm not going to suggest anything... but I'm sure some rethinking was needed here.

Page turner!!

I was so much glued to the story that finished all the episodes at a stretch. Very nice short story and the presentation was also nicely made. I'm a very big fan of audio stories and wish to do such narration myself also one day.
