Akshay Kumar starrer Padman has been released in cinemas. The film is based on the life of Arunachalam Muruganantham, who is the inventor of a low-cost sanitary pad making machine and has helped spread awareness about traditional unhygienic practices around menstruation in rural India.
Story of the movie: The film is based on Lakshmikant Chauhan (Akshay Kumar), living in a small town in Madhya Pradesh. Lakshmi loves his wife Gayatri (Radhika Apte) very much and takes care of her every happiness. He wants to make Gayatri’s life easy. When he realizes that Gayatri uses dirty clothes during her periods, as being the wife of a factory worker, she can not afford expensive sanitary pads. Than he decides to make sanitary pads. He even tried to break the taboo around menstruation in a conservative society and managed to convince the women of his village to use sanitary pads instead of cloth rags or leaves. Lakshmi starts his journey tackling many failures and moves on to success.
Star Performance: Akshay Kumar as Lakshmi gave a brilliant performance. On the other hand, Radhika Apte has done complete justice with her role. Her chemistry with Akshay is worth watching. While, Sonam Kapoor has also performed brilliantly.
Music Direction: Music by Amit Trivedi is a hidden gem of Padman. Songs like ‘Aaj Se Teri’ has already became hit among the audience. Rest of the songs are also good.
Direction: The film’s direction is awesome. Director R.Balki’s hard work is clearly visible in the film. The first part of the film is very strong. However, second half of the film seems quite weak. The cinematography by PC Sreeram is strong.
Watch Or Not: You must watch this movie as it is an inspiring film and could create positive impacts. This film can’t be missed.
