Thappad trailer looks hard-hitting; Taapsee Pannu set to continue her good form!
The trailer of Taapsee Pannu’s upcoming film ‘Thappad’ has just been released online. Anubhav Sinha has directed the film that seems to be dealing with a topic that’s very relevant in today’s times. ‘Thappad’, which means slap in Hindi, is about a woman who seeks divorce against her husband who slaps her in front of everyone while in a party.
A particular scene in the trailer reminds one of ‘Arjun Reddy’ director Sandeep Venga Reddy’s controversial statement that people who are in real love have the liberty to hit each other occasionally. From what we get from the trailer, it seems like the makers of ‘Thappad’ are making a strong statement that a slap is not a petty thing that should be brushed aside. Pavail Gulati plays the role of Taapsee’s husband in the film. If done right, this will be an important film about domestic violence.
Director Anubhav Sinha is fresh from the success of ‘Article 15’, a film that got nationwide attention for exposing the brutalities of caste based discrimination in Indian heartland. This is his second film with Taapsee Pannu after ‘Mulk’, which was a court room drama that discussed about the discrimination faced by Muslims in the country.
‘Thappad’ is scripted by director Anubhav along with Mrunmayee Lagoo Waikul. Soumik Sarmila Mukherjee is the DOP and Yasha Pushpa Ramachandani is the editor.
