Pink started a conversation around ‘consent’ and established that if a woman says No it means No, irrespective of how she is dressed, if she is flirting with the man or even if she is drunk. It might not be an entertainer which you can watch to relax, but it definitely is thought-provoking and should be watched, if you haven’t already.

Thappad

Streaming on: Amazon Prime Video

Director: Anubhav Sinha

Thappad movie review A still from Thappad. 

The Indian Express film critic Shubhra Gupta gave Taapsee Pannu starrer Thappad 3.5 stars. She wrote, “Thappad resonates, as it is meant to. Because the director shows, without mincing any words (sometimes too many, and too explicatory), just how patriarchy is handed down from one generation to another, and how women are equally complicit. After that fateful slap, in full view of family and guests, Amrita responds by self-soothing, and when that doesn’t work, by expecting her own family, including her mother (Shah) and her brother and his girl-friend (Grewal), plus, of course, her father, to be supportive. No surprise that it is her mother who baulks, and talks about the importance of ‘rishtey nibhana’, and ‘wohi tumhara ghar hai’. After marriage, the ‘maayka’ is no longer the girl’s by right. It is a place where she can visit and stay for a while. A traditional Indian girl in a traditional Indian marriage can never go back home again.
