Taapsee's 'Thappad' Trailer: A Slap On Kabir Singh?

As we recall, Shahid Kapoor's Kabir Singh last year received a lot of flak for showing violence, patriarchy and glorifying condescending attitude of a male. The film was also criticized for its slap scene where Kabir Singh character slaps the female lead. The toxic masculinity was majorly highlighted and this irked many of the viewers.

Now, the latest trailer of versatile actress Taapsee Pannu's Thappad which was released yesterday had made people remind of Kabir Singh. In fact, people loved Thappad and trolled Kabir Singh. The film is all about Taapsee fighting for justice as she will be slapped by her husband.  Directed by Anubhav Sinha, the plot totally revolves around Taapsee's character, making a woman-centric movie.

The trailer already received positive talk and the storyline is said to be impressive, showcasing true feminism and anti-patriarchy. Netizens soon compared the film's trailer with Kabir Singh's slap and even bullied Kabir Singh's filmmaker Sandeep Reddy Vanga for emphasizing domination of one particular gender. 'Sir Kabir Singh ki gandagi saaf karne ke liye Shukriya,' wrote one user. Another user writes 'This is a tight slap to all versions of the movie, Kabir Sigh, Arjun Reddy and Adithya Varma, which normalized violence against women'.
