Saand Ki Aankh Movie Review : Taapsee and Bhumi shine in this fitting ode to women empowerment

STORY: The biographical film traces a certain part of the lives of India’s oldest sharpshooters, Prakashi Tomar and Chandro Tomar, and leaves us with an inspiring message.

REVIEW: Sisters-in-law Chandro (Bhumi Pednekar) and Prakashi (Taapsee Pannu) are accustomed to the patriarchal ways of the society that they live in. They don’t agree with it or like it, but they are conditioned to put up with it, but at the same time, the ladies find their own little escapes to keep themselves going. At the age of 60, the two senior citizens, who live in Johri village (Uttar Pradesh), with their big family, accidentally discover that they have a flair for shooting. With some help from doctor-turned-shooting instructor Dr Yashpal (Viineet Singh), who sets up a shooting range in the village, they participate in various competitions and win medals. While they are busy honing their skills, the men in their house are oblivious to the new happenings in the lives of these ladies. They also inspire their granddaughters to follow suit. However, a twist in the tale leads them to bring a stop to the hide-and-seek, and face the men in the clan head-on.

Right at the beginning of the film, director Tushar Hiranandani sets up the stage, giving the viewers a glimpse of a household, where a woman's identity depends on the c
olour of the dupatta that she drapes. In a scene, Bhumi explains to a newly-wed Taapsee that the women of the house stick to wearing a 'ghunghat' of a specific colour as it helps avoid confusion among the men in the house.

Bhumi and Taapsee are in great form as grandmothers, who are willing to do anything to inspire and help their granddaughters. The two leading ladies carry the film on their shoulders effortlessly. Their indomitable spirit shines through even when the going gets tough. Whether it's sipping on many glasses of champagne or standing up when they are bullied by a bunch of teenagers, the two walk the road hand-in-hand and prove to be equally competent. At a few places, Taapsee steals an edge over Bhumi, but the latter quickly makes up for it. Filmmaker Prakash Jha, who turns antagonist here, does a good job and is menacing enough to evoke fear and contempt. Of the film’s songs, 'Womaniya' and 'Udta Teetar' add to the entertainment quotient and stay with you even after you leave the theatre. It's a good thing that the dialogues aren't preachy, but there's nothing memorable about them either.

It’s the poor prosthetic make-up that ends up distracting you. The silver streaks in leading ladies' hair and patchy make-up is an eyesore. It’s to Bhumi and Taapsee’s credit that they overcome this hurdle and get you to look beyond it. While there is no doubt that this is an inspirational tale, it meanders a bit too long in the first half of the film, before finding stable ground. A tighter edit would have made it a far more gripping watch. The narrative also stumbles a bit when the game of hide-and-seek between the two daadis and their family starts getting a tad repetitive. Luckily, the director escapes that trap soon and sets things in motion when the two major face-offs in the film unfold. The characterisation seems unidimensional; there are exactly four good men, and no mean women in this tale. 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.
