The highly anticipated drama film Thappad released in theatres on Friday and received good reviews from the audience and critics. As the subject matter of the film deals with the very fabric of the patriarchal society that we live in, it had been established through some of the reviews that not all audiences will be able to appreciate the subtle message that is conveyed through the film. Among the critics who reviewed the Anubhav Sinha directorial on Friday, Sumit Kadel took to his Twitter and called the film monotonous and said, "Film condemns domestic violence, but the plot & circumstances displayed are illegitimate & fanciful. Script & Screenplay is banal, fails to entertain the audience, somehow endorse divorce culture. Taapse Act is top notch."

To this, an aspiring filmmaker Vijayeta Kumar responded and pull apart his review by questioning Kadel about it. She demanded an explanation for calling the circumstances in the film "illegitimate & fanciful". Vijayeta also slammed him for expecting entertainment from a film about domestic violence.
