Did Thappad become a victim of Covid? It would have won many awards otherwise

Taapsee Pannu led and Anubhav Sinha directed Thappad released in late February last year.

The film was still running in theaters when the country went in complete lockdown. However, the film that was lauded by critics and loved by the viewers could have emerged as a big winner at awards but sadly there weren’t any events to honor its craft.

The film to be very honest would have been nominated in Best Film, Best Director, Best Screenplay, Best Actress category for sure. Thappad was largely able to drive a major shift in the normalized patriarchal mindset of our society. Well, even if the film couldn’t earn big at awards, it found a special place in our hearts.

The film is streaming on Amazon Prime Video.
