One of Diwali’s most anticipated releases this year is ‘Saand Ki Aankh’, a film that tells the story of two sniper women, who dedicated themselves to the sport after the age of 60. The film stars Bhumi Pednekar and Taapsee Pannu in the roles of The oldest snipers in India, Prakashi Tomar and Chandro Tomar. Bhumi feels that the inspiring story of two women fighting gender norms will spark thinking and debate about gender in the country.
Bhumi Pednekar believes that his next film “Saand Ki Aankh” highlights the inequality towards women that exists even today in society.
The film metaphorically points out the inequalities that women have faced through the generations through the life story of two of the oldest snipers in the world of India, Chandro and Prakashi Tomar, played by Bhumi and Taapsee Pannu, respectively.
‘Saand ki Aankh’ is a film about the equality of women at its core. Women have faced inequality in our country since we can remember. It takes a group of brave and brave women to break those old molds of discrimination , to achieve an evolution of equality in our country. These women started a revolution. And that was exactly what the Sisters did. Without knowing it, they were part of a system that gave them no chance because society simply did not know better, but he didn’t want the same for his daughters and granddaughters, “Bhumi said in a statement.
The actor said he is inspired by the journey of Chandro and Prakashi. “In their 60s, they broke all the shackles of the patriarchate through a very inspiring and truly overwhelming journey. Laughing, smiling with a never bored moment, they paved the way for a flourishing future not only for their girls but for more than 50,000 boys.
“They are full of love, warmth, hope and everything positive. They are very fun and full of life. Their story is unforgettable. It is a roller coaster full of tears and laughter.” Bhumi said the movie is a family artist who has something for everyone. “There are so many moments in the movie where you just want to hug your mother for everything she has done and moments when you will be so inspired by them that no task would seem difficult.
“It is a family film, because it is important that the whole family watch this movie and realize that, knowingly or unknowingly, it is always the woman of the house who is subjected to inequality, it is her dream that the most of the time it’s your dream. (it) becomes secondary or not relevant. ” She hopes that “Saand Ki Aankh” brings positive social change. “I hope that, through our film and through inspiring scenarios, we can make some change in the way people think. We need to celebrate our daughters. Love them, take care of them and let them shine. ”
