Nazar unfolds the tale of a Daayan's dark energies that are said to surround the Rathod family since generations and how this can affect their lives. According to folklore, Daayanshave a long braid or Chhoti', which contains all their power, they have backward feet (UltePaer') and their presence can suck the life out of everything around them.
The phrase burinazar na lage' is common in Indian households for a reason - a Daayan's evil eye or Nazar possesses the ability to harm an individual and his entire family. People believe that hangingred chillies and lemons (nimbu mirchi') on doorways to houses can protect one from the evil eye.
The show revolves around Antara Biswas as Mohana Rathod who plays the character of an extremely powerful Dayaan (Ekaayan) and tries to bewitch the Rathod family. The show airs on Star Plus and streams on Hotstar.
