The teaser of Saand Ki Aankh, featuring Taapsee Pannu and Bhumi Pednekar, is filled with humourous yet poignant moments. The biopic is dedicated to the world's oldest sharpshooters, Chandro (86) and Prakashi Tomar (82).

The trailer begins with a slow-motion shot of the two walking down, immediately giving viewers a sense of the duo's no-nonsense, bad-a** attitude. Hailing from a remote Indian village, the two women are shown oscillating between a strict, orthodox household, which demands women cover their faces, and taking aim for a competition. in the very next scene.

Special mention to a scene where Taapsee's character confesses that while taking aim, she refuses to be like Arjun and go for the bird's eye. "When I take aim, what I only see is 'saand ki aankh'." Bhumi's character is quick to chip in "It's bull's eye."
