The plot of Thappad revolves around ‘just one slap’ and how it prompts Taapsee Pannu’s character to seek divorce from her husband. The story is about how she is pestered with questions on how ‘one slap’ is a ground for divorce. As the movie hits the screens on Friday, even one viewer felt the same that how there was no ‘logic’ in the film since Taapsee's character was seeking divorce over one slap.
An actor-RJ shared a video review of a man who watched the film and said, “In one slap, if you give divorce, that means there was no love at all. And the scene is such that the slap happens accidentally while taking away the phone.”
While the RJ clears that the slap was not accidental, the man stuck to his guns and said, “There is no logic at all. If it happened situationally, it is not that big a point.”
The RJ further asked the man about Kabir Singh, in which Shahid Kapoor’s character slaps Kiara Advani’s character. “In Kabir Singh, he comes with aggression to pick up from the college again and again, but there was love between them,” the man justified.
Even, Taapsee responded to the video, quipping how she was already feeling bad for his lover/wife and how she should be ready to be hit because it’s all in ‘love and humour.’
