Anubhav Sinha’s Thappad deals with a wife’s response after her husband slaps her at a party. Writing about it, the review said, “A powerful and impactful film, Thappad makes you angry and uncomfortable, and, at the same time, it makes you question the everyday misogyny that you willingly ‘adjust to’ in real life. Director Anubhav Sinha refuses to normalize issues that taken for granted in a regular setup, instead, he asserts and reasserts that even if it is ‘just one slap’, why and how can a man get away with it so easily?” The film’s catchline ‘Bas itni si baat’ defines the film’s spirit.
