Trust Taapsee Pannu to bring us a film that makes us want to sit back and think, right? Be it Pink, or a Mulk or even a Manmarziyaan, she has always taken up roles that are out of the ordinary. Now, with her next, Thappad, she is all set to shine again as she questions how detrimental one slap can be for a marriage or a relationship between two people. Is it really, “Bas itni si baat?” is something she seeks out to answer.
Directed by Anubhav Sinha, the movie is about Amrita (Taapsee) and her husband, played by Pavail Gulati. They are a young couple very much in love and live a very normal life doing normal couple things. But this fight one day between Amrita‘s husband and another person results in him slapping her, and that changes everything for them. He apologises profusely after. Lawyers question why one slap is such a huge issue when everything else is so perfect in their relationship. But all she has to say is, “Just one slap, par nahi maar sakta (He can’t do it)“. This is about her journey in fighting the world around her, and for the many women around her who think that it’s just one slap for the sake of love.
Taapsee is such a rockstar, isn’t she? Absolutely loving the treatment of the film, and excited for the amazing star cast that includes Tanvi Azmi, Dia Mirza, Ratna Pathak Shah, among others.
Produced by T-Series and Benaras Mediaworks Production, the film is all set to hit the screens on the 28th of February.
