Thappad is a Hindi movie directed by Anubhav Sinha as part of the third movie in the trilogy which includes Article 15, Mulk as part of it. Both the former movies were a huge success even as low-budget movies. While for Thappad the case is different.
Even though the film is low-budget as the other ones mentioned, the storyline seems pretty depthless. The story begins when a happily married upper-middle-class couple arranges a party in which the husband unintentionally slaps his wife before everyone.
This makes the female protagonist acted by Taapsee Pannu to question the whole marriage and the absence of love in her for him. As the incident was remote which is made evident by the interaction between the couple from the beginning of the movie makes the decisions and dialogues delivered by the character pretty shallow. It is clearly the ego at play here.
Thappad Box Office Collection: Day 1
The movie is expected to perform well on the first day. The critics predict the movie might gather at least 3 crores on the initial day. The film which released on Friday, February 28, 2020, is getting on average 12 percent audience occupancy.
Another factor that stands good for the movie is the absence of any competition at the releasing week of the movie. No other big-budget movies are on the list to eat up against the box office collections.
The success of the previous movies in the trilogy had, will give a needed boost for the audience to give this movie a chance to prove its competence.
