Thappad trailer

Taapsee Pannu starrer, Thappad trailer comes at a time where physical abuse in a relationship is being normalised on-screen. The trailer is gripping, relevant and necessary now, more than ever.

Indian cinema is a lot of things but lacking in objectionable content isn't one of them. Questionable scenes, dialogues and lyrics are woven into the fabric of the films we have grown up watching and still do. No, we're not saying they're all like that but there are too many to be ignored. However, the scenario seems to be changing or at least we hope it does with movies that talk about sensitive subjects. Taapsee Pannu's upcoming film, Thappad, for instance, talks about domestic violence and physical abuse which are usually normalised on-screen and worse, in society as well. The Thappad trailer is out and a must-watch.

Taapsee and Pavail Gulati are shown to be a married couple who seem to be happy. However, the very core of their seemingly fine marriage is shaken to the core when the husband in a fit of rage over an argument with a guest hits Taapsee's character (Amruta) across her face. It is after this moment that the film's story is set in motion.

The after-effects of physical abuse aren't always the same. Most of the times, the matter is either swept under the rug or the victim of such abuse is expected to 'get over it' as 'it happens sometimes'. But Taapsee's character, Amruta isn't ready to get over it, in fact, she's willing to uproot her married life and fight against what's wrong. Her path isn't easy but the only other option is giving up and she isn't willing to do that. The movie doesn't only talk about one relationship though, it also shows another couple from a lower socio-economic group where the victim of abuse has been suffering for a long time only to ensure she has a roof over her head. The various aspects of how the same scenario plays out under different conditions add depth to the story.
