Thappad is an Indian drama of an upper-middle-class family located in the heart of Delhi. Amrita, who is beautifully played by the very talented Taapsee Pannu, questions herself after being slapped by her husband. Thappad isn’t just a common question every woman today can ask, and it is a story that portrays a human being’s ego and his/her way of defending it. After being slapped right in the face, the slap echoes in Taapsee’s mind, and further, she asks for a divorce, and this is when the film reaches an interesting phase as the male ego is being tested on a very dramatic level. Amrita, played by Taapsee Pannu, then evaluates her marriage and relationship that she has with her husband and strives to take a stand for herself amongst the male-driven society she lives and breathes in.
Thappad: What’s it about
If you are looking for a self-driving and brave story that showcases how a woman should be treated, this is a must-watch movie for you. Especially if you are a woman, this is not only a question to your very own consciousness, but it is a question to each and everyone who thinks ego has a bigger hand in our very own society. Thappad is a perfect example of women empowerment, and it’s strength in our today’s male-driven culture and tradition. In a society that has way too many judgments to pass on for women and their decisions, this movie helps the viewers understand the mind-set of every woman tired of such mediocre thinking of the society we sometimes, are proud of.
