It’s pretty thrilling not scary though

It’s good, worth a watch. It’s your normal PG-13 movie but no sex or drugs. Violence is only towards the end and language is rare and easy to handle. only thing is the flashbacks are kind of scary.

Is It Any Good?

Sarita Choudhury is a gift to any movie, so it's the good fortune of this film to have her talent and charm offset the downright silliness of its plot. When the plot unfurls, it boils down to the unlikely outcome that a guy in his 20s wants to have the woman, now near her 60s, who jilted him decades before when he was someone else. So why does he need to marry Usha's daughter? Why does he tell Usha that if she tries to interfere, he'll kill Pallu? When the young handsome Sandeep finally meets up with 60ish Usha and tells her that he's lured her by using the daughter, all because he wants Usha "forever," the story just falls apart. At least Rosemary's Baby, with the devil playing a role, made sense internally. Evil Eye even suggests that as one bad man expires his evil soul enters a newborn's body to do further mischief decades in the future. Teens can find much better scares and thrills elsewhere.
