In a nation where male entitlement is not only accepted but also expected in marriage, Thappad movie’s trailer stirred quite a conversation on social media. With the audience conditioned to view toxic, misogynist heroes and heroines without agency (or voice), Thappad is a riposte to movies that propagate masochistic heroism.
At the start, the trailer shows a couple who in the aftermath of a setback, get into an argument and the husband slaps the wife. The line that the trailer highlights, “Haan bass ek thappad… par nahi maar sakta” (yes, just a slap… but he can’t hit me) speaks volumes of the narrative of the story and reverberates Amitabh Bachchan’s dialogue in another Pannu starrer Pink, “no means no”.
Thappad, after Sinha’s Article 15 is yet another movie questioning the fundamental paradigm of the society’s core values and thereby changing it. The veteran female journalist, Barkha Dutt comments on the movie saying, “The film is brave and lifts the lid off silent, crushed & repressed female dreams.”
Tapsee Pannu plays the protagonist who is literally “slapped” back to reality by her husband and henceforth clearly recalls every injustice she had been conditioned to accept. While handling this movie, it is inevitable to touch upon the Shahid Kapoor starrer Kabir Singh that romanticized an entitled and toxic hero. Thappad seems to be a slap on such characters and motion pictures that don’t acknowledge agency, voice or even space for women.
