The story of the film revolves around Chandro (Bhumi) and Prakashi (Taapsee) hailing from Johri village in Uttar Pradesh. They do household chores and spending nearly six decades of their life without a purpose. They might hate it all they want but they have learnt to accept the patriarchal ways of the society. It is in their sixties that they hold a gun for the first time and discover their innate skill to hit the bull’s eye, courtesy Dr Yashpal (Viineet Singh) — an aspiring doctor who gives up his ambition to open a shooting academy in the village.
Daadis participate in countless competitions and keep collecting medals while men in the house are unaware of what’s happening under their nose. Not just this, they encourage their granddaughters Shefali (Sara Arjun) and Seema (Pritha Bakshi) to follow their hearts, hone their talent and secure their future. What will happen next for this you have to watch the film.
Both Taapsee Pannu as Prakashi & Bhumi Pednekar as Chandro delivered a brilliant performance in the film. Viineet Kumar Singh played his role successfully. Pritha Bakshi & Sara Arjun do their part as the granddaughters very well. Prakash Jha who plays the family patriarch Rattan Singh have done justice to his role.
