Thappad: Taapsee Pannu is the hero we deserve

Time and again, Taapsee Pannu has proved that she is, indeed, one of the finest actors we have in Hindi Cinema. Miss Pannu has given one of her best performances in Anubhav Sinha’s Mulk and now the actor-director duo return with Thappad. 

The trailer begins with Pannu’s character, Amu, filing for a divorce after her husband slaps her. Her lawyer asks her why was it done, and if there are extramarital affairs involved, to which Amu replies saying that it was just one slap, adding, “par, nahi maar sakta.”

What’s most intriguing about the trailer is that it promises to achieve everything that Meghna Gulzar’s Chhapaak lacked. Both the films deal with violence against women, but Gulzar’s film had it’s limitations, while Thappad doesn’t seem to have them.

There are also brilliant dialogues in the trailer. My favourite being, when another character says, “har rishta flawed hota hai, usse jod ke rakhna padta hai,” Amu replies,

“jod ke rakhni pade koi cheez toh matlab tooti hui hai na…”
