Saandh Ki Ankh is the real-life story of Chandro Tomar and Prakashi Tomar, the oldest shooters from UP. Taapsee & Bhumi look every bit believable in the teaser of this Diwali release.
Trust Ms Taapsee Pannu and Bhumi Pednekar to deliver excellent performances in whatever roles they pick. The two have made some unconventional yet marvellous movies in the times when Bollywood actresses happily dance to item numbers in big-budgeted male-dominated movies.
The two ladies were recently seen having fun on the sets of their next release ‘Saand Ki Aankh’ slated to release on Diwali 2019.
The film is based on the real-life story of two elderly women who fulfill their dream of becoming professional shooters despite the restrictive rituals, traditions and mentalities of the society in Village Johri, UP.
The two sisters, Chandro Tomar and Prakashi Tomar rose to fame when they won 30 national championships in sharpshooting after the age of 65.
The leading ladies, Bhumi and Taapsee look fierce, determined and funny in the teaser released on the Reliance Entertainment Youtube Channel.
As per reports, Taapsee trained for sharpshooting to pitch perfect her role in the movie. The teaser has opened to great reviews however it has faced a lot of flak for choosing much younger actresses for the roles of elderly ladies.
To which Taapsee responded, “I was pretty surprised and laughed at it thinking, no one questioned me when I played a college girl at 30. Nobody questions when these big actors portray college characters being triple the age. At that time nothing happens.”
What so ever, the teaser has got the viewers excited about yet another female-centric film of 2019. Directed by Tarun Hiranandani, Saand Ki Aankh also stars Prakash Jha and Vineet Kumar Singh. Let’s see how it fares at the Bo-Office on 25 October 2019.
