Genre – Social Drama

One of its kind, Thappad directed by Anubhav Sinha is a powerful tale of finding your own identity rather than obliging yourself to the age-old patriarchal system. The film starring Taapsee Pannu raised a few eyebrows questioning the idea the film tried to convey. Taapsee plays Amrita, a middle-class housewife who enjoys a good life with her husband. But her world changes in front of her when her husband slaps her in front of a big crowd and doesn’t even feel sorry for his actions. Why did he think that it was fine to slap and why did feel that its Amrita’s fault for not getting over the matter? See the film to find it out yourself.

2. Raazi (2019)
