THAPPAD meaning Slap, a Bollywood movie which hit the theatres on Friday, February 28, has received a critical review. Directed and co-produced by Anubhav Sinha is a feminist movie with Taapsee Pannu as a spirited woman who revolted against domestic violence. She files for divorce when her husband humiliates her. Taapsee Pannu called Amrita in the movie is an ideal house maker who serves her husband and her aging mom-in-law as part of her daily routine. She never fails to discharge her obligations to them and is on her toes till her hubby Vikram departs for office. She has to run often after Vikram played by Pavali Gulati when he forgets his lunch box and wallet. She also regularly checks her mother-in-law’s blood sugar level and supervises the kitchen. Amid her crowded schedule, she finds time to teach classical dance to her neighbour’s daughter. But one slap changes her conjugal life. Vikram hosts a party to celebrate his success in the corporate world.  Amrita, whose life so far has revolved around Vikram’s needs and happiness, changes almost overnight after humiliation when she was slapped by her hubby after something is amiss in the presence of the invitees. He wrongly targets his submissive spouse. The public humiliation shatters Amrita. She decides to stand up for her shattered pride by deciding to walk out of ‘loveless’ marriage. The movie minted Rs 3.07 crores on its opening day. Film critic and trade analyst Taran Adarsh disclosing the film’s box office collection on his Twitter account, says ‘’ the film started low in the morning show, and gathered speed post noon and registered healthy growth towards the evening and night shows’’. Anubhav Sinha’s 81- minute Hindi move carries a message -conjugal happiness is based on mutual obligations and respect on the couples. (edited by PK Chakravarty)
