Thappad trailer out: Tappsee Pannu slaps on Violence against Women
The trailer of Taapsee Pannu's upcoming film Thappad is out. Helmed by Mulk and Article 15 director Anubhav Sinha, Thappad is another attempt by the filmmaker to show the reality of the society. Taapsee Pannu plays the lead role of Amrita, a wife who moves court to seek divorce after her husband slaps her at a party.
The trailer starts with Amrita having a conversation with her lawyer after her husband, played by Pavail Gulati, slaps her. She is seen telling her lawyer that it was just a slap but he cannot hit her. The couple look much in love until the male lead hits Taapsee.
The trailer shows how the society considers a slap a trivial matter and asks a woman to compromise. In one scene, Ratna Pathak Shah, who plays Amrita's mother, is seen saying, "Bas ye sunana reh gya tha, beti divorce karegi." While in another scene, Tanvi Azmi suggests Taapsee to forget it. She says. "Jaane de beta. Thoda bardasht karna seekhna padta hai aurton ko (Let it go. Women have to tolerate a little)".
