Thappad is a Hindi Movie starring Taapsee Pannu and Pavail Gulati and it is Drama directed by Anubhav Sinha. A woman reevaluates her marriage after her husband slaps her in the face in front of a group of people at a party.
Anubhav Sinha smashes the record of his own direction with this simple yet brilliant tale of a 'Thappad'.
The film begins with the daily routine of Amrita. A very specific tightly knit routine. She wakes up, opens her front door to collect milk, picks up the newspaper, makes chai, shuts off the husband’s alarm, serves him chai as he lazily rubs his eyes, checks on the mother in law, has a quiet moment sipping from her cup of morning tea, clicks a picture from her phone as the day breaks, smiles at her neighbour, packs the husband’s lunch, runs after him as he scurries to his car, carrying his wallet, bag, tiffin and then catches her breath! This exact routine continues even after the night her husband slaps her in the heat of the moment. This routine depicts the simplicity of Amrita's life. She's not shown as a powerful or ferocious lady but a sweet family loving housewife. Her journey of self discovery has many hurdles contructed by her loved one's.
