25 Best Taapsee Pannu Movies (and Where to Watch Them)

Published on

Taapse Pannu is a leading name in modern Bollywood today but before leading Hindi movies like Thappad and Pink, she found her start in Tamil, Telugu and Malayalam movies. While Pannu has shared screen space with Bollywood heavyweights like Shah Rukh Khan (Dunki) and Amitabh Bachchan (Badla), Pannu also finds time for a few South Indian dramas like Game Over and Anabelle Sethupathi.

If you like the diverse work of Taapsee Pannu, our guide takes you through her best movies and where to watch them.

From Pink to Manmarziyan: Which Taapse Pannu movies should I watch first?

Before she became a household name with Baby and Pink, Pannu appeared in a handful of South Indian movies across various languages. From her early 2010s work, the best film to watch is her Tamil debut Aadukalam. Directed by Vetrimaaran, the film found Pannu playing an Anglo-Indian girl called Irene alongside Dhanush’s rowdy rooster-fighter hero.

Coming to her Bollywood credits, the role that drew her the most attention initially was that of undercover special agent Shabana Khan in Neeraj Pandey’s spy thriller Baby. With Akshay Kumar in the lead, Baby was a gripping adrenaline ride with Pannu shining in her brief but memorable performance. She would reprise her role in the prequel Naam Shabana.

As a lead actress in Bollywood, the first career highlight for Pannu came with the courtroom drama Pink. Detailing the aftermath of a woman’s molestation and a rigged court case, Pink featured a compelling performance by Pannu alongside Amitabh Bachchan who starred as the lawyer representing her. Pannu would go on to play more of such empowering roles in women-led dramas such as Thappad.

After Pink, she revisited the legal drama genre once again with Mulk. The 2018 film starred her as a lawyer attempting to clear her father-in-law’s name after he’s falsely accused of having links with extremist terror groups.

Biopics also dominate Pannu’s filmography, particularly the ones on sports stars. So, while Saand Ki Aankh found her playing sharpshooter Prakashi Tomar, Shabaash Mitthu starred her as the former Indian women’s cricket team captain Mithali Raj. She also had supporting roles in other biopics and fact-based films like the hockey-themed Soorma, the Mars space mission drama Mission Mangal, and the sports drama Rashmi Rocket.

Two of Taapsee Pannu’s best movies were directed by Anurag Kashyap. Their first collaboration was the offbeat love triangle Manmarziyaan and the other was a sci-fi drama called Dobaaraa, an official remake of the Spanish film Mirage.

Talking about remakes, Pannu has also notably starred in the Indian remakes of German time travel classic Run Lola Run (Loop Lapeta) and the Spanish revenge-thriller The Invisible Guest (Badla).

So, while she might take on commercial ensemble-led dramas like the Rajkumar Hirani immigration comedy Dunki or the Varun Dhawan-fronted screwball comedy Judwaa 2, Pannu also harbors a passion for genre roles like a video game developer in the survival thriller Game Over and an alleged husband-killer in the romantic thriller Haseen Dillruba.

Why is Thappad the best Taapsee Pannu movie to watch?

Thappad deals with a woman’s quest for self-independence after a slap by her husband changed her life. Taapse Pannu’s character starts off with suppressing her feelings and then evolves to release them with dramatic but hard-hitting monologues. The film garnered her a Filmfare Award for Best Actress and made her a bankable leading actress in her own right.
