Thappad Trailer Review by upper BALCONY is at your service. & this one looks highly controversial which can generate poles apart views by audiences.

Thappad is an Anubhav Sinha directorial with Taapsee Pannu in the lead which marks their second collaboration after critically acclaimed Mulk.

Happily married couple. Ambitious husband. Dedicated housewife. Success party. Complicated circumstances. Rush of blood. Husband slaps. Wife shattered. Wife files divorce. This is the synopsis which we have been able to gauge looking at the Thappad trailer.



Concept of this issue based movie is pretty different and it raises lot of questions.
> Is it acceptable if in a messy situation, husband hits his wife and later apologize ???
> Should wife accept the apology and move on ???
> If forgiven once, will husband start considering it as normalcy ???
> Should it be considered as one off incident or such an incident is the starting point of domestic violence ???
> Is wife overreacting by filing divorce for such a small incident and destroying her married life ???
> What if they are not only couple but parents as well ???
> Should a child suffer the separation of mother & father basis such an unanticipated incident ???
> What if your father hits your mother and then apologize ???
> Will you, as a grown up child, be able to accept it easily ???
> & mainly, is it actually an incident as normal as it looks to everyone else or an absolutely unforgivable moment as considered by the sufferer ???

All these are debatable questions and every individual will have totally different opinion about each question. And, answers to this set of question will give birth to lot more questions on the same lines. Endless debate.

Taapsee is in top form and we can expect a crackling performance from her as we have seen in many past movies such as Pink, Mulk, Badla, Saand ki Aankh and others. Supporting cast boasts of highly talented names such as Ratna Pathak Shah, Kumud Mishra, Manav Kaul, Tanvi Azmee, Ram Kapoor & Dia Mirza. Maya Sarao’s performance as Taapsee’s lawyer is something I am looking forward to.

While trailer looks intriguing it also gives a feeling that how will director present a gripping product with such a story which can be easily described in single line. What more can be shown in a movie which is an outcome of just a thought is the bothering question. However, we believe that Anubhav Sinha who has recent track record of critically acclaimed social issue based movies like Mulk & Article 15 would have definitely created this one also in pretty convincing manner.

Last year we saw Section 375 which dealt with an altogether different issue but that also was based on a debatable law by INDIAN judiciary. Movie was highly appreciated by it’s target audience. Will Thappad meet the same fate or not can be known only on 28th February 2020.
