Thappad Critic Reviews & Ratings

Thappad film drives home a solid point and leaves you with enough to ponder upon.

  • CNN News18 | Review By - Rajeev Masand | Rating-4/5
It’s a hard subject to pull off, but Anubhav Sinha achieves it with first-rate storytelling.

  • NDTV | Review By - Saibal Chatterjee | Rating-4/5
Anubhav Sinha's Thappad, as pointed as Mulk and Article 15 but markedly less dramatic, cuts close to the bone.

There is not a shred of doubt that Anubhav Sinha has made an important, crucial film, which shows up centuries of male entitlement for what it is.

  • Scroll | Review By - Nandini Ramnath | Rating-3/5
The overall message, of heeding the conscience even if it pricked just once, survives the needless wandering.

  • Rediff | Review By - Sukanya Verma | Rating-4/5
Thappad is a befitting addition to the trilogy, one that I hope expands into a riveting canon of Sinha's meaningful cinema.

  • Mid Day | Review By - Mayank Shekhar | Rating-4/5
Striking subtle, patiently engaging, Thappad takes you through a gentle car-ride with a lilting background score.

  • The Hindu | Review By - Namrata Joshi | Rating-NA
Writers, Anubhav Sinha and Mrunmayee Lagoo Waikul, do well in turning a solitary slap into larger exploration of male entitlement.

This film compels us to question our complicity. Which is the first step to change. I strongly recommend that you see Thappad.

  • News18 | Review By - Priyanka Sinha Jha | Rating-4/5
Thappad is a rousing soul search, raising the question again and again, till it forces an answer.

Thappad offers a reality check and delves into how it also serves as an irreversible insult that can actually ferment into a point of severe contention.

  • Gulf News | Review By - Manjusha Radhakrishnan | Rating-4/5
The brilliance of this film is that Sinha has chosen not to demonise the husband who’s intrinsically and inadvertently toxic and privileged.

Thappad makes a strong statement on patriarchy and violence against women and is laced with a powerful performance by Taapsee Pannu.

Overall Average Rating - 3.9/5
