After Mulk and Article 15, Anubhav Sinha set his sights on domestic abuse in his most recent social drama Thappad. Written by Sinha and Mrunmayee Lagoo Waikul, the film stars Taapsee Pannu as a devoted wife whose entire world is shaken after her seemingly loving husband (Pavail Gulati) slaps her in a fit of rage. What follows is her messy, turbulent quest for justice and divorce, all while her family, friends and lawyers try and make her 'see reason' and not overreact at what was 'just a slap'. The ensemble drama has an impressive supporting cast which includes Dia Mirza, Kumud Mishra, Ratna Pathak Shah, Manav Kaul and Geetika Vidya Ohlyan.
Produced by Bhushan Sudesh Kumar , Krishan Krishna Kumar and Anubhav Sinha the film is streaming on Amazon Prime Video. You can download the script below:
