  1. Agree totally with the point on Taapsee you made. She's done so many woman of steel characters that despite them being starkly different they still seem to be part of the same universe. Not every film has to have feminist messaging or a social issue attached to it. I hope she does something light like a romcom as well.

  2. An insightful review after a long time. Impressive how you spotted the dichotomy of unconventional and conventional in the film. Thanks πŸ‘πŸ½

  3. High time for Tapsee to change her acting pattern. It's like taking up similar characters approach and mannerism. Badla thappad manmarjiyan brought her into big league but gradually she will fade out if she doesn't bring variations in her roles

  4. I don't know what happened to Taapsee, from last couple of movies of her, she is acting same in her every movie, there is no variations just monotonous acting, she is degrading herself with every movie now,
    Anupama you rightly pointed it out at the end of this video, she is becoming same in her every movie.

  5. High time for Taapsee to change gears….As Anupama said, her characters are merging with each other…..we can't find any distinction in her performances….it's like seeing the same character in every movies….

  6. as much as I adore you Anupama, I did not like your comment on "type casting" Tappse as a woman of steal as if it was a bad thing. Would you make the same comment on Akshey Kumar doing the same kind of files as becoming a typecast for himself as the savior in hindi cinema. I think playing women of steal is important and pivotal for some women in hindi cinema as we need to have strong women not all beautiful ones. Tappse is going something she is clearly good at, fits the role, why is she being " type casted" for it. don't perpetuate sexism even if it is doing by mistake, you are a voice with power, think before saying such things that could hurt a woman's career. I have followed you for years, and for the first time im offended.
