The 3:17 minutes trailer is nothing short of a breathless ride but it gives out more than necessary. Taapsee and Bhumi put up a great show but are they convincing as 60+ grandmothers?
The official trailer of Anurag Kashyap’s ‘Saand ki Aankh’ has been released. The Tushar Hiranandani’s film is a real-life female-centric story of two old grandmothers from Uttar Pradesh who accidentally discovered their shooting talents on an odd summer afternoon.
The heroes Chandro Tomar, played by Taapsee Pannu and Prakashi Tomar, played by Bhumi Pednekar have poured their heart and soul in the film which can be seen in the trailer.
The trailer opens with Prakash Jha’s almost offensive statement,” Ye bandook mazak na hai. Ye mardo ka gehna hai aur mardo ke hath he achhi lage hai.” The ladies then promise to help their granddaughters learn shooting so that they never have to struggle with oppression in a patriarchal society.
Then the story behind the title ‘Saand Ki Aankh’ unfolds scene by scene. Their new-found love for sharpshooting at the age of 60 doesn’t go down well with society and rest is history.
The Shooter Dadis won over 352 medals in real life. Chandro is fondly called ‘Shooter Dadi’ while sister-in-law Prakashi Tomar is named as ‘Revolver Dadi’. The two fearless women are proof that if you’re born to do something extra-ordinary; you will find a way to do it sooner or later.
Their bravery has transformed the small village of Bagpat in Uttar Pradesh into the holy sharp shooting learning ground for women of all age groups.
Produced by Anurag Kashyap and Nidhi Parmar, The film will hit the cinemas on 25 October just before Diwali 2019. At the box office, it will clash with Akshay Kumar’s Housefull 4 and Rajkummar Rao’s Made In China.
