Taapsee Pannu and Bhumi Pednekar starrer Saand Ki Aankh's first teaser just released. Their intense acting is getting mighty praises. However, what has left the fans a bit disappointed is their look as sharpshooters as Chandra Tomar and Prakashi Tomar. However, the makeup and hairstyle went totally wrong – the actress’ who have been shown in old age avatars, probably in their 60s. Their overdone makeup and salt and pepper hairstyle is fine but what about that toned skin and wrinkle-less skin? If you compare their younger versions from the film to the older one, you will hardly see any difference apart from the hair colour.

Some of the fans too opined the same on social media. In one of the early interviews, Dharam Kaivlash Singh and Pallavi Shroff told that they wanted to avoid the prosthetics on the face. They also told that the heroines were worried about the latex used on their faces might wrinkle their faces. With good roles, comes this too. Remember that transformation video by Aamir Khan during Dangal? He looked old and young, because it was an amalgamation of work-out, researched make-up and body language. No doubt, the body-language department has been well taken care of Bhumi and Taapsee. But the attempt of making the beauties look old by skipping the essentials clearly is shown on the screen.

I actually liked the #SaandKiAankh teaser. Even though the casting should've been age appropriate and this makes the film kinda ageist Taapsee and Bhumi seem to be in fine form. And I love watching women break social barriers and kick the asses of men.

#SaandKiAankh - Teaser.
Make up is a Big turn off. They would've taken shabana Azmi and Dimple Kapadia as older versions.https://t.co/xY34TUzeTK

Another recent epic blow to the character was Hrithik Roshan's Anand Kumar from Super 30. The makers tried hard to make him look closer to the character by showing his face brown. However, as expected it turned out to be unconvincing leading the fans to tag him as a misfit in the shoes of the character. Here are more examples of the same in some of the known and recent films.

Salman Khan in Bharat
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in Sarbjit
Katrina Kaif in Bharat and Baar Baar Dekho
Priyanka Chopra in Mary Kom
Well, the characters do have a major impact on the minds of the audience when the look is nailed. Be it a biopic or a fictional story, the age and the background of the character plays an important role. In times when people get to see beautiful transformations Ranveer Singh-Kapil Dev ('83), the audience demands more. With Saand Ki Aankh specifically, only stellar actresses Taapsee and Bhumi's body language can convince the cine-goers.
