  • ...is an absolute family entertainer that needs to be watched with your grandmother. Celebrate womanhood as you take home a message that is inspiring but will take decades to seep into our society.

    Critic rating (?)

  • 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.

  • ...is a pleasant family watch for the Diwali weekend. Take your main women along. If possible, add your khadoos taus and uncles of your family to that list, to show them the mirror in an indirect way.

  • ...rests on an inspiring story and bravura performances by Taapsee Pannu and Bhumi Pednekar.

    Critic rating (?)

  • The story of these geriatric grannies who refuse to be determined by their circumstances, age or social barriers, and dare to stray beyond their defined perimeter to break through lends an inspiring narrative. In this regard, Saand Ki Aankh touches a necessary nerve.

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...the bad prosthetics do irk and irritate at the start, but slowly you begin to overlook the cakey make-up on the faces of Pednekar and Pannu and begin warming up to the place, its people, stories, struggles and, most of all, a matter-of-fact rustic sense of humour.

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...is never less than credible while being true to the impulse to craft an entertaining real-life chronicle. More than your money's worth, it is a film that delivers food for thought and emotional stimulation in one go.

  • ...stands apart because it doesn’t just celebrate the achievement of two individuals.

  • ...celebrates the spirit and spunk of the shooter dadis.

    Critic rating (?)

  • I would have liked a classier film, but as far as the emotional beats go, Saand Ki Aankh is mostly on target.

    59

    Critic rating (?)

  • The movie aims high, and wants to say many important things about the lack of opportunities for women, in sports or elsewhere. But its uneven tone and the easy-peasy manner in which the lead pair accumulate awards rarely allows for an nuanced understanding of just how the Tomar women did it.

    Critic rating (?)

  • If your tolerance for such movies is high, if you think there's a particular sort of joy to be discovered in revisiting stereotypes you have already formed in your head, then dipping into Saand Ki Aankh wouldn't hurt you.

    Critic rating (?)

  • In the film, the elderly women are played by two twenty-somethings buried under layers of prosthetics, and that, right there, is the problem.

    39

    Critic rating (?)

  • There's something so desperately missing in the general rhythm and tone of this film that beyond a point, not just the audience, even the filmmakers seem unable to decide on whether this is a high-octane melodrama, set to appease junta-class.
