Thappad: Guneet Monga, Sudhir Mishra praise Taapsee Pannu's film; Rajkummar Rao calls Anubhav Sinha 'master storyteller'

Anubhav Sinha, best known for his thought-provoking social drama Mulk, Article 15, is awaiting the release of yet another hard-hitting film Thappad. Starring Taapsee Pannu in the lead, the film seems to investigate the nitty-gritties of systematic oppression in even a "seemingly normal" marriage. Pannu essays the role of an educated, upper-middle-class woman who is forced to evaluate her relationship after being slapped by her husband, played by Pavail Gulati. Thappad chronicles her struggle as she files for a divorce petition and ventures on in her pursuit of justice.

A day away from its release (28 February), the film is heaping praises from the film fraternity. Stree actor Rajkummar Rao has hailed Pannu's performance and says she is a 'force to reckon with.'. Filmmaker Vasan Bala says that the movie, which deals with the issue of domestic violence, needs to be 'embraced, applauded and discussed as much.'

Veteran director Sudhir Mishra who hosted a screening of Thappad in Bhopal writes about audience's response and called the film as Sinha's 'best work.'

The Congress government in Madhya Pradesh on Tuesday announced a three-month exemption from the State Goods and Services Tax (SGST) to Thappad.  The film also stars Ratna Pathak Shah, Manav Kaul, Dia Mirza, Tanvi Azmi, and Ram Kapoor in pivotal roles.
