Padman Movie Review: Akshay Kumar's Film Is Watchable For Its Exceptional Subject

Would you like Twinkle Khanna’s rainbow number in your wardrobe

Padman is not about box office, it is about fanning or magnifying the conversation around a woman's basic right to menstrual hygiene, says R. Balki, director of the film. Even Hollywood hasn't made a film on such a topic.

Further the Minister stressed that apart from just being an entertainer, the movie intends to impart a vital social message to the nation.

Malhotra isn't the only mainstream star to speak up about menstruation.

Slowly when Lakshmi discovers about Gayatri's menstruation, he tries to coax her to stop using dirty rags for her monthly periods and switch to sanitary napkins instead.

Nearly half an hour into PadMan, wife Radhika Apte asks Akshay Kumar: Why are you so trapped between a woman's legs? "There should be awareness on menstrual hygiene among men as well", he said. Working with a self made Super star, whom I admire so much and watching his films from my childhood and suddenly got a chance to share screen with him is something very special for me. He said, "Sonakshi Sinha will be a part of the film".

Padmaavat actor Ranveer Singh may be one of the last ones to take up Akshay Kumar's Pad Man challenge on social media but makes sure he doesn't go unnoticed.

Pad Man, which hits theaters in North America on February 9, aims to raise the curtain on all myths, taboos and beliefs around periods and menstrual hygiene, which have held women and girls back from empowerment for centuries. Social causes taken up by Bollywood for a movie's promotion does not remain a subject of interest to them once the movie has been released.

The movie claims that just a fraction of India's burgeoning population over the years can afford sanitary pads sold by MNCs at high prices for much more than the costs involved. We tracked him down and asked him if I could write about his story in my book and we eventually decided to make Pad Man. This is path-breaking, as the film introduces us to homes where a woman on her period has to live in seclusion and avoid going to the temple among a hundred other restrictions. But with Iulia stating that Bollywood is not her priority anymore despite having done an item number in a film earlier, the makers have now finalised "Bigg Boss 10" contestant Mouni Roy in the film. Comedienne Mallika Dua also poked fun at the #PadManChallenge.

With the conversation around period poverty already gathering pace in the United Kingdom, thanks to initiatives such as activist Amika George's #FreePeriods campaign, and the news that Scotland is to give free sanitary products to women with low incomes, it is the plight of women in India that will be brought to the forefront thanks to this ground-breaking film.
