very literally, 'aankhon ki gustakian' would mean 'mischief of the eyes' or 'mischief made by the eyes'.

But I am sure, this could also refer to a wink.

Bold glances

Aankhon: eyes
gustakhian: mistakes

'Gustakhi' is commonly used in the phrase 'Gustakhi maaf' (forgive my mistake).

'Ankhon ki gustakhian' are bold, impudent glances that breach the social etiquette.
