When it comes to giving memorable performances, Taapsee Pannu never disappoints. Since her on-screen debut, the actor has constantly selected challenging and inherently unconventional roles.
The parts in Pannu’s broad and varied filmography span multiple languages, ranging from a murder suspect with a dubious alibi to those of a seductress who will stop at nothing to win the love of her life. The performer has appeared in both blockbuster movies and roles that have received high recognition from critics, which best display her inherent talent.
Taapsee Pannu in Pink
While Taapsee made her official Bollywood debut in David Dhawan’s Chashme Baddoor (2013), her portrayal of a courtroom drama with Amitabh Bachchan in 2016 made audiences sit up and take notice of her exceptional acting abilities. She portrays Meenal, one of three women who attempt to bring a lawsuit against the son of a prominent politician in the film.
A night out with friends that were supposed to be enjoyable quickly turned into a nightmare when Meenal had to protect herself by beating the politician’s son in the head with a glass bottle. Top critics took notice of Pannu’s seamless performance and her capacity to shine next to a performer of Bachchan’s stature, which aided in her ascent to fame.
Taapsee Pannu in Mulk
Thappad was not the first time Pannu, and Anubhav Sinha had successfully collaborated on a significant victory. Islamophobia in India was addressed in the gripping courtroom drama Mulk, in which the actor portrays a Hindu lawyer defending her Muslim father-in-law (Rishi Kapoor) against accusations that he had ties to a terrorist group.
Despite the fact that they are, without a doubt, innocent, they quickly learn that they are up against a system that is based on racial discrimination. Because of Pannu’s harsh and valiant portrayal of the lawyer, which counterbalanced Kapoor’s quiet performance, Mulk evolved into a compelling exploration of divisive sectarian politics.
Without a doubt, Taapsee Pannu was the right leading lady for Anurag Kashyap’s romantic comedies. The performer did a fantastic job portraying a unique heroine who was unrepentant in her persistence and refusal to concede defeat. The story is supported by an outstanding soundtrack and revolves around three characters involved in a convoluted love triangle against the backdrop of Amritsar.
Taapsee Pannu in Badla
Amitabh Bachchan, who oddly also featured as her attorney in the film, linked up with the actor once more for this murder mystery. In this English-language adaptation of Oriol Paulo’s Spanish film The Invisible Guests, Pannu plays a highly successful businesswoman who is the prime suspect in the murder of Tony, her lover.
Pannu was in love with Tony. You are intrigued by this intriguing mystery because of the relationship between her and Bachchan as they attempt to piece together what occurred on that fateful evening.
Taapsee cemented her reputation as one of Bollywood’s most dependable and marketable performers with this Anubhav Sinha film. She portrays a young housewife who marries an upper-middle-class family in the movie. Until one fateful evening, her days pass in placid monotony when her husband slaps her in the middle of a house party in front of their guests to vent his resentment about not earning a promotion at work.
The smack jolts her awake to all the microaggressions she had been letting pass by, setting her on the road to independence. The film received overwhelmingly positive reviews, and Pannu was commended for giving her most significant and riveting performance to date.
