Saand Ki Aankh Reviews

January 18, 2020
[A] solidly entertaining piece of "girl power" masala that I found roundly engaging and worth a watch.

As good as Saand Ki Aankh may be (which is about half good), practices like this shouldn't be supported, and this is coming from Anurag Kashyap's biggest fan.

The powerful dialogue, the heart-wrenching scenes among the female characters and the wonderful depictions of the grandmothers getting to grips with modern life add so much to the film...

Watch the film for the real-life drama, as well as for its affirmative message towards women empowerment.

The film drives home the point of women empowerment, celebrates the bonhomie among women wholeheartedly, and attempts at every point to hit the bull's eye.

Pannu and Pednekar are wonderful and spunky and embrace their parts even though their body language and posture is variable. Bakshi and Arjun provide admirable support.

Taapsee Pannu and Bhumi Pednekar's body language is wrong. Their faces are made old by latex, but their hands and necks are young. Crucially, at no point do they make us suspend disbelief.

The film is made as a defiant dramedy - the drama is such that it's derived from comedy, and the comedy is such that it's diluted by drama.

It's a simple, straightforward story in essence. I wish it wasn't so simplistic in its telling.

Taapsee Pannu and Bhumi Pednekar have a winner on their hands in this inspiring story about two women who take on patriarchy.
October 25, 2019
Given the task of playing women double their age, Pannu and Pednekar come up trumps in their turn as cheery, fire-breathing warriors.
October 25, 2019
There is a simple reason for why this grannies-with-guns saga fires blanks: the elderly women are played by Taapsee Pannu, aged 32, and Bhumi Pednekar, aged 30.

On a closer look, these intermittent charms practically cease to exist without its two leads. Saand Ki Aankh's insistence to be painfully crowd-pleasing force Pednekar and Pannu to be perennially on the defensive.

Sharpshooting women who break cultural barriers in India are irresistible leads in this crowd-pleasing film.

This feels like a waste of rich narrative possibilities, as mechanically feelgood as those two dozen Britflicks that have cast Dames Dench, Smith et al as old dears who shoot from the lip.
