Evil Eye by Madhuri Shekar

As an Audible member, I quickly came across Evil Eye by playwright, Madhuri Shekar, earlier this month. Evil Eye is an Audible Original and it sounded intriguing. Evil Eye sounded too good to pass up, so I gave it a go.

Listening time for Evil Eye by Madhuri Shekar is 1 hour, 38 minutes.

I was able to download Evil Eye by Madhuri Shekar to my Kindle for FREE from Audible. Below is my honest, unbiased review for Evil Eye by Madhuri Shekar.

Wow, Evil Eye sucks you in from the start and keeps you captivated through the end of the story! I enjoyed the storyline and the edge of your seat, nail biting suspense during this audio production. The narrators did an excellent job narrating Evil Eye. I couldn't wait to see how it all came to an end. 

Evil Eye by Madhuri Shekar is definitely worth the listen!!

The following is a plot summary for Evil Eye by Madhuri Shekar from Audible:
An Audible Original from Audible Theater, Evil Eye is an Emerging Playwrights Commission, written for and available exclusively on Audible.
Usha is convinced that the Evil Eye, a curse that brings continuous misfortune, was cast upon her daughter, Pallavi, 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, 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 rising star playwright Madhuri Shekar 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, Evil Eye is a can’t-miss tale about cultural miscommunications, family secrets, and the lingering echoes of trauma.
I am giving Evil Eye by Madhuri Shekar a rating of 4.5 stars out of 5 stars.

Until my next post, happy reading!!


  1. Phone calls and emails. Definitely sounds like Audible was the way to go for it. I am glad you found a good one.

    1. I was shocked at how good this one was. The ending had a minor moment, but otherwise a great read.

  2. I don't enjoy listening to books as much as reading them Cheers

    1. Many people don't enjoy listening to books as much as they enjoy reading them. :-)

      Evil Eye is more of play as it was written by a playwright, so I think it is meant to be heard verses read. Cheers!
