Saand Ki Aankh Critic Reviews & Ratings

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.

You come away from 'Saand Ki Aankh' with your spirit considerably elevated. It's a shrewd little film that knows exactly what buttons to push to win your heart.

  • NDTV | Review By - Saibal Chatterjee | Rating-3/5
Barring a slip here and a blip there, Saand Ki Aankh is never less than credible while being true to the impulse to craft an entertaining real-life chronicle.

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 Hindu | Review By - Namrata Joshi | Rating-NA
Director bats it straight and simple, strikes the right notes — emotions never spill into melodrama, humour doesn’t turn slapstick and there’s a right mix of the rousing and the feel-good when it comes to the music, lyrics and dialogue.

  • Scroll | Review By - Nandini Ramnath | Rating-2/5
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.

The inconsistent wrinkles and the excessively brown skin tone can be ignored, but when the shades seem to vary in different parts of the face, it’s distracting.

  • Mid Day | Review By - Mayank Shekhar | Rating-2/5
This is effectively a rare film about two women, that miraculously fails the Bechdel Test.

  • News 18 | Review By - Priyanka Sinha Jha | Rating-3.5/5
The unfussy storytelling is well aided by with an upbeat background score and competent production design that faithfully recreates the simple, village setting.

On the whole, SAAND KI AANKH rests on an inspiring story and bravura performances by Taapsee Pannu and Bhumi Pednekar.

  • Gulf News | Review By - Manjusha Radhakrishnan | Rating-3/5
The movie would have benefited heavily from some slick editing. Certain twists seem highly unnecessary.

Overall Average Rating - 2.8/5
