Saand Ki Aankh has been grabbing viewers' attention since the announcement regarding the film was made. One of the major reasons for that is the film's narrative being centered around protagonists who are elderly women-- Prakashi and Chandro Tomar. The film has also received some backlash for casting Taapsee Pannu and Bhumi Pednekar rather than actually casting elderly women for the role. Despite that, it seems that Saand Ki Aankh has swept some of Bollywood's best directors off their feet.
Speaking to Mumbai Mirror, Aanand L Rai stated, "It's a very honest film, from the director to actors everyone has done a great job! Bhumi and Taapsee completely get into the skin of the characters. It was a great experience and I completely enjoyed it!"
Filmmaker David Dhawan also complimented the film calling it "superb" adding that it is a must-see for everyone. Ravi Udyavar called the film "inspirational and important."
Milap Zaveri also enjoyed the film and stated, "What a wonderful film with such strong emotion. The story is inspirational and the performances are outstanding! Tushar has hit the Saand Ki Aankh with this film!"
Social media was also flooded with positive reviews of the film. Mukesh Chhabra and Anubhav Sinha took to Twitter to express their appreciation of the film. This was soon followed by Karan Johar who has not watched the film yet but is eager to do so after hearing the positive comments revolving around it.
