Thappad (slap) has a line label “Bass Itni si Baat?”, which literally translates to “That little thing only?”. This is the common Indian abstinence with which women live with domestic violence and other insults. This is what the wife of good girls and good girls does because of culture, sabhyata, blah blah blah. Thappad’s heroine makes it clear that she is not, however.
Amrita is a happy housewife, immersed in her daily routine, supports her professionally conscious husband Vikram (Gulati), and takes care of her elderly mother-in-law. Her world collapses one day when her husband slaps her at a distraught and humiliating Amérita party. Women rally around to tell her to move on, or even blame her; housewives must be tolerant. No one scolds her husband, he rebukes her husband. He sleeps deeply, unconscious.
Thappad is outstanding because it takes a firm stand, a company not even a single slap, in Indian society that imposes sanctions on all kinds of insults towards women under the guise of “cultural values”. It’s not that he routinely hits her, he routinely hits her. Is that he can’t even raise a hand once. It is also remarkable that, when amrita rebelled, she is not a financially independent woman – no job, no reliable personal savings. The house is his — support for her. She has only her family and they reluctantly support her.
Though Amrita’s is the main story, we get to also see the plight of other women and the men who take them for granted. Amrita’s loving father, played by the marvelous Kumud Mishra, supports her but is shamefaced when his wife (Pathak-Shah) reminisces about her lost dreams. I didn’t stop you, he says.
You saw them disappearing but never said a word, she says. There is Netra Jaisingh, Amrita’s lawyer (Sarao) who is subjected to snarky put-downs from her famous lawyer husband (Kaul, from Music Teacher); marital rape (not a crime under Indian law) is a hint at. And then there is fabulous Geetika Ohlyan (whom you might remember from Soni). She plays Amrita’s maid who is routinely beaten up by her husband.
Reviews of the Movie Thappad
Thappad’s wake-up call — surprisingly, we need an alert in 2020 — is very strong because it shows that social conditioning is deeply rooted and dangerous. Generations of women, under the thumb of patriarchy, are accomplices. Parents teach their daughters to put family and home above themselves. Men, meanwhile, will be just men.
It’s also wonderful that Thappad is giving screen time to explore the effects of this humiliation on Amrita, and how she must overcome entrenched social conditioning to do the right thing for herself. During this time, I found other transitions a little jerky, and I would have liked to have spent some time showing us how men change their way of thinking, instead of just presenting us with their repentance on a platter; feels wrong.
Thappad has a fabulous star cast. Azmi, Shah, Mishra – they are all magnificent. Special kudos to Pavail Gulati (from Made In Heaven fame) who embodies the typical, 3 idiots movie download oblivious Punjabi male to the T. Thappad is another feather in director Sinha’s (Article 15, Mulk) cap.
