Thappad means slap and just as it's title suggests, the entire story begins with a slap. A happily convenient marriage on the surface falls apart after the husband slaps his wife. Initially the idea that her husband could slap her shocks the most. Soon after she realises it's not Image
the slap that hurts more but the indifference shown later by her husband like nothing has happened. The reaction of her in-laws and even her own family except for her father makes her question her entire life. How easily a woman is taken for granted is shown very practically. Image
Every woman shown in the movie liberates in their own way - a widow finally finding closure, a poor servant fighting back her husband, eventually hitting him back is an astonishing sight indeed after being hit for all those years, a successful lawyer who finally leaves her Image
husband not wanting to pretend anymore & Amrita's mother-in-law's apology are all interwoven flawlessly with the main plot. @taapsee as usual pulled off the character of Amrita, giving life to the story and much appreciation for @anubhavsinha for creating #Thappad

A normal year in India consists of innumerable murders, hundreds of sexual assault and we get to witness atleast two or more unspeakable rape attempts, with victims dying pathetically. We vent our rage on social media, shout back to our television for showing us the harsh reality
instead of celebrity gossips, some go the extra mile to voice out and protest. The anger is true but what happens after a fortnight or so? Do we forget because things change for better or get ourselves busy with endless bitter bills and laws thrown on our way. Many of us want to
hang the rapist. Nirbhaya case rapists are all hanged and are no more on this earth but does the crimes ever cease? A psychopathic disgusting rapist who commits this despicable detestable crime doesn't arrive, grow, walk around raping girls all on his own.

The shows no one recommend you about sometimes turn out best or atleast something that touches you. I choose most shows out of instinct and "Beauty and the Beast" is a latest one like that. Not a re-telling of the classic legend but has similarities which resemble it. Image
A human experiment went awry and how it ruins lives for generations, haunting Vincent Keller, Catherine Chandler and how their destinies are intertwined promises an interesting watch though the plot is predictable at times, dialogues are so explicit leaving no room for subtlety Image
tires one as the story goes when the characters are as desparate as audience to end the show. It started out as super sensible turning annoying in the middle but still got back on a mature track. Image

So shameless. Utterly uncivilized. Yes, but not others. You are. If you can't even take criticism in social media you shouldn't be out here in the first place. First of all it's wrong to blame actors for the behaviour of their fans. And @actorvijay has explicitly advised fans
on social media behaviour. You say you stand for women empowerment but you're cheaply thrashing wives of popular actors just because a few out of their many fans are commenting mean words. Honestly, where's the calm down element you used to preach but never practice?
No one care about what you do okay. Just chill. Most problems of your life and career is because of your indecisive and unstable mind. All the people who you chose to spew hatred are all in a better position than you. So get a life and do something better than spreading hate.

Don't wear mask like a chin guard. You could as well not wear it if you're gonna lower it while speaking as the main purpose of a mask is to protect others while you speak and protect you while others speak. Pass it on. Image

The visible brutality and verbal vulgarity of the movie is sickening but what makes it worse is most of it was irrelevant for the story. The thriller element is forced and lacks coherence. Whenever a knot is made it should be untied at some place. There are some logical flaws out Image
of many from the entire film is as follows.

1. Why is the protagonist named Rythm when there's no significance for it?

2. Why Rythm starts issuing search bulletins after her child went missing for a year whereas Anjana's mother starts issuing on day 2?
3. What was the relevance of the photos of Gautham given to Rythm?

4. Why wasn't the doctor's motive behind his psychotic behaviour explained?

5. Why Rythm never uses the invention for instant communication at times of trouble? ( Yeah I meant mobile phone)

I started watching Joey series after I felt I haven't got enough of Joey in F.R.I.E.N.D.S. Then, Joey lasted only 2 seasons, so I began with Man With a Plan and @Matt_LeBlanc has grown undeniably charming with his silver fox looks and all. Within few episodes I got hooked to the Image
content. The period of life which is not usually shown in movies & TV shows : 15th year of marriage with three children. The challenges faced in their relationship, endless debates on parenting and occasional yet consistent discussions about feminism & the responsibility of a man Image
is the plot which is carried out with lots of spontaneous humour which will make you roll with laughter. @StacyKeach1 punishing Teddy was utterly hilarious. A meaningful family drama which was prevented from being deliberately didactic with a generous dose of comedy. Image
