I’m going with four out of five for Thappad. It’s a hard subject to pull off, but Anubhav Sinha achieves it with first-rate storytelling. The best films inspire dialogue, they set you thinking; they can even lead to change. This one made me uncomfortable; it made me question myself and I think it will make you too. It’s essential viewing.

Anubhav Sinha makes a strong statement yet again. #Thappad asks uncomfortable questions, his best work so far… #Taapsee spectacular, even her silence speaks volumes. #PavailGulati terrific… Must watch!

On the whole, Thappad is a well-written and well-made film with some great performances. It will be loved by the womenfolk, the elite, the classes and the multiplex-frequenting audiences in the big cities mainly. But viewers in small centres and of many single-screen cinemas will not like the film because for them, it is too ahead of the times and also because they will not approve of a girl seeking divorce on the ground that she was slapped by her husband once. It will win critical acclaim and some box-office rewards. Collections will definitely pick up in the cities due to positive word of mouth.

Thappad is the story of a single slap. A blow to the cheek that Vikram, angry, frustrated, a little drunk, inflicts on his wife Amrita who is attempting to steer him away from an escalating conflict. This is an affluent Delhi home. Vikram is an ambitious, hardworking executive. Amrita is a cheerfully dutiful housewife. They seem snug in their respective roles. But that night brings into sharp focus the inequity of their relationship. It’s almost as if Vikram slaps Amrita awake from a slumber and then it becomes impossible for her to fall back into that façade of domestic tranquility in which she is, without doubt, a second-class citizen.

“Iss baar kamaunga tujhe,” says Vikram in the last scene. The camera pans out with visuals of two cars driving away in opposite directions. Even though it might appear a bit wishful, we thought it was apt. Did Anubhav just reduce love to a currency? No, he didn’t. But earn it, you must.We’re going with 3.5 stars out of 5. (Minus .5 for that whininess).

Ratings:.4.5/5 Review By: Pallabi Dey  Site: Times Of India

‘Thappad’ is not just a film aimlessly ranting about borderline domestic violence; it brings to light the years of conditioning that a woman is subjected to by her own family and society that she lives in. Other than the aforementioned couple, there are other women in focus, too — one who is bearing the brunt of a family’s name and legacy, one hung up on the idea that marriage is the ultimate destination, one coming from the poorer section of the society who is compelled to believe that getting thrashed by the husband is the norm, and one who has loved and lost a fine husband and is now struggling to find a replacement who outdoes the former. Sinha manages to intertwine all these stories and juxtaposition them with one another at right junctions, without being too in-your-face about it. The subtly works beautifully even as the stark contrast in their lives unfold.

Just a film? No. Anubhav Sinha’s Thappad, as pointed as Mulk and Article 15 but markedly less dramatic, cuts close to the bone. It is likely to reverberate beyond the darkened movie halls where it plays. It has the potential to force audiences to pause and think and, hopefully, act. As you watch Thappad, you sense how efficacious cinema can be when it is pressed into the service of conversations that matter.

But there is not a shred of doubt that Sinha has made an important, crucial film, which shows up centuries of male entitlement for what it is. And how all it takes, from a woman who just wants self-respect, is a decision to say no, Not Even One Slap.

On the whole, THAPPAD makes a strong statement on patriarchy and violence against women and is laced with a powerful performance by Taapsee Pannu. At the box office, it will be loved and adored by its target audience – the womenfolk.
