Thappad is a social drama film directed by Anubhav Sinha that features Taapsee in the leading role. The film critiques our society's outlook on married life and its 'shaadi mein sab kuch chalta hai' stance. The film received much appreciation for its social commentary. Actress and Producer Lakshmi Manchu had lots to say about the film after she watched it 2 weeks ago but couldn't bring herself to write about what she felt. 2 weeks after watching the film, Lakshmi finally wrote down what the film pushed her to reflect on and shared it with her fans. Lakshmi praised the entire team of Thappad. She also added a special mention to the film’s lead Taapsee Pannu and its director Anubhav Sinha
Lakshmi Manchu shared a photo with her message. She wrote, “I watched Thappad two weeks ago and I haven't been able to bring myself to write a note about this film. It made me question everything I was taught as an Indian woman, as a woman coming from a certain community, there were always more Don’t than Do’s. While watching Thappad I felt like each of the characters was a part of my subconscious mind and I was asking the same question myself, which each of them was asking. As soon as I finished watching it, I was empowered and so broken that it made me re-look at how I look at myself and the self-respect I have for myself and for the other people around me. I can’t thank Taapsee enough for being as bolder as she is and bringing films like these, I know her journey behind the film and power to her for putting this into Art. Anubhav Sinha Ji, you’re a master storyteller. The Dialogues, The Screenplay, and everything moved me in every part of myself, Thus a must watch the movie for Men, Women, and Children all over the World. If you haven’t seen it watch it on Prime Video. Taapsee you make me the proudest - Lakshmi Manchu.”
