In our review, we gave Thappad 3.5 out of 5 stars while writing, "Thappad is not just about one thoughtless slap, it's about all the prejudice and injustice that exist in lopsided relationships and marriages, all around us. It is well-intended, powerful and relevant."
'Thappad' is competing with 'Shubh Mangal', 'Bhoot' at box office
At the box office, Thappad is competing with movies such as Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan and Bhoot: The Haunted Ship, both of which released last week.
While Ayushmann Khurrana and Jitendra Kumar-starrer Shubh Mangal has so far minted Rs. 46 crore, Vicky Kaushal's first-ever horror flick Bhoot has collected just around Rs. 24 crore by end of its first week.
