Monika Rawal Kukreja | Hindustan Times: 4/5
Taapsee Pannu film is a scorching indictment of everything that’s wrong with us. Taapsee Pannu and Anubhav Sinha’s film will stay with you and make you question the status quo. One of the most powerful films to come out this year ... Full Review

Pallabi Dey Purkayastha | Times of India: 4.5/5
An impactful social drama that questions the unsaid rules of marriage ... Full Review

Shubra Gupta | The Indian Express: 3.5/5
Thappad bears its message, more essential than ever, on its chin: Women are not property. Wives are not owned. Dreams have no gender, and everyone is allowed to realise them. And how all it takes, from a woman who just wants self-respect, is a decision to say no, Not Even One Slap ... Full Review

Rajeev Masand | News18: 4/5
It’s a hard subject to pull off, but Anubhav Sinha achieves it with first-rate storytelling ... Full Review

Saibal Chatterjee | NDTV: 4/5
Taapsee Pannu Is Pitch Perfect In Film That Hits Hard. Pavail Gulati, who has the tough job of being the trigger of the principal conflict point, balances the qualities of a genial man with that of an individual who turns into a smug husband at the slightest provocation ... Full Review

Bollywood Hungama: 4/5
THAPPAD makes a strong statement on patriarchy and violence against women and is laced with a powerful performance by Taapsee Pannu ... Full Review

Taran Adarsh: 4/5
POWERFUL. Anubhav Sinha makes a strong statement yet again. Thappad asks uncomfortable questions, his best work so far. Taapsee spectacular, even her silence speaks volumes. Pavail Gulati terrific. Must watch! ... Full Review

Umesh Punwani | Koimoi: 4/5
It Helps You To Become A Better Version Of Yourself. Thappad is a heavy film for your heart as well as your brain ... Full Review

Namrata Joshi | The Hindu: 3.5/5
It’s at the fag end, in its needless effort to rehabilitate the offenders and turn them abruptly and handily penitent, that the film wobbles but thankfully doesn’t get entirely derailed ... Full Review

Sukanya Verma | Rediff: 4/5
A spectacular Taapsee Pannu brings out the shift of a happy homemaker to a heartbroken woman most strikingly in her deeply affecting performance ... Full Review

Anna MM Vetticad | FirstPost: 3.5/5
Taapsee Pannu’s most potent film yet is a resounding slap in the face of misogyny ... Full Review

Riddhima Kanetkar | DNAIndia: 4/5
Thappad will stay with you long after it’s over and that is a testament to its brilliant, to the point storytelling. You would want to stop and ask yourself, “Thappad. Bas itni si baat? (A slap. That’s it?). ... Full Review

Nairita Mukherjee | India Today: 3.5/5
Taapsee hits you hard in a film as strong as that thappad. Anubhav Sinha brings a seemingly simple story with layers and layers of surprise that will make you rethink yourself. And, he has excellent support from the entire cast ... Full Review

Uday Bhatia | Live Mint: 3/5
‘Thappad’ is on-message—and a little exhausting ... Full Review

Nandini Ramnath | Scroll: 3/5
Amrita’s rattling of the cage is never loud, which is a relief, but it also never quite resonates, which is a problem for a movie with big ambitions of dissecting the very foundation of marriage and family ... Full Review

Devesh Sharma | Filmfare: 4/5
Hat's off to director Anubhav Sinha for making yet another well-meaning and powerful film asking all the right questions. It's 2020 and it's a shame that it has taken this long to say that even one slap shouldn't be tolerated ... Full Review

Anupama Chopra | Film Companion: 3.5/5
A Tightly Knit Screenplay Packed With Carefully Constructed Insights. Irrespective of your gender or your economic status, you will see something of yourself in Thappad ... Full Review

Backed by a brilliant cast and director, Thappad is a silent slap that’ll wake you up ... Full Review

Jyoti Dwivedi | Live Hindustan: 3/5
फिल्म बेहद खामोशी से अपनी बात कहती है। तापसी ने संवादों के बजाए अपनी खामोशी के जरिये अपने दिल का समंदर उड़ेला है। ... Full Review

Parag Chaphekar | Jagran: 4/5
उल्लेखनीय परफॉर्मन्स रहा काम वाली बनी गीतिका विद्या का। कुल मिलाकर ‘थप्पड़’ आज के दौर की एक महत्वपूर्ण फ़िल्म है जिसे देखना वाकई आपको एक अलग अनुभव देगा। ... Full Review

IANS | Sify: 4/5
Thappad is without a doubt one of the finer films you will see this year, simply because it tackles a difficult and powerful subject with credibility ... Full Review

Madhuri | Filmi Beat: 3.5/5
Thappad too, dares to question the deep-rooted patriarchy and societal norms. But thankfully, it manages to hit the right notes to start a dialogue when it comes to calling out the wrong and unfair notions in the society ... Full Review

Sriram Iyengar | Cinestaan: 4/5
An ode to the women all men need but don't deserve ... Full Review

Anusha Iyengar | Zoom TV: 4.5/5
Taapsee Pannu's compelling drama will keep you on the edge of your seat ... Full Review

Sonal Gera | India TV: 4.5/5
Taapsee Pannu is brilliant in this giant-sized mirror to the society. Watch 'Thappad' -- just watch it -- with your family, with your husband, with your father...with the women in your family... Make them think; make them squirm in their seat. And probably for having this internalised -- darr toh thappad se hi lagna chahiye ... Full Review

Madhavi Pothukuchi | The Print: 4/5
Must-watch story of every Indian woman that will make you uncomfortable. Taapsee Pannu’s new film will quietly shake you from within and change the way you look at violence in everyday life ... Full Review

Ambica Sachin | Khaleej Times: 3/5
The Taapsee Pannu starrer might come off as a little over-the-top initially, but ends up as a woman's brave fight to retain her self respect ... Full Review

Vaibhavi V Risbood | PinkVilla: 4/5
Taapsee Pannu starrer is not about criticising men, but showing them what needs mending ... Full Review

Shubha Shetty Saha | Free Press Journal: 3.5/5
This film is a fresh take on the age-old issue of domestic violence, something that is often not recognised as a real problem by society ... Full Review

Poulomi Das | Arre: 3/5
Although it is backed by a compelling performance by Tapsee Pannu, Anubhav Sinha’s Thappad serves a crowd-pleasing definition of feminism that is more interested in making a statement rather than interrogating the status quo ... Full Review

Mashable: 4/5
Anubhav Sinha’s Thappad is a slap across the face of patriarchy that turns men into entitled beings. Taapsee Pannu’s performance forces you into feeling her existential crisis, while the supporting cast ably supports the well-layered narrative ... Full Review
