Padman is based on the real-life story of social entrepreneur Arunachalam Muruganantham, who invented a low-cost sanitary pad making the machine and helped spread awareness about traditional unhygienic practices around menstruation in rural India. Mr. Muruganantham felt the need to come up with a convenient solution to tackle menstrual health for women after he learned his wife used newspaper and rags during her menstrual cycle.


The way the whole idea has been depicted on screen is quite impressive. The screenplay is good and definitely keeps the audience hooked onto the movie.


Music director Amit Trivedi has given good music and has kept in mind the social issue the film is made on.


Editing seems to be lagging and could have been better. The result is that the movie feels a bit too long.


R. Balki has done a marvelous job with exemplary direction. Considering the sensitive topic of the film, it becomes very challenging for a director to link the film emotionally with the current situation. And, R. Balki has succeeded in doing so with Pad Man!

Pad Man Movie Rating & Public Talk:

Pad Man Movie Rating: 4/5

Pad Man Movie Plus & Minus Points: Updated Soon…

Verdict: PadMan being a love story primarily, Balki cleverly makes his point loud and clear. In fact, the first half is sloppy and the film picks up in the second half with a praiseworthy climax. Radhika Apte is raw, real and true to life. Sonam Kapoor is just about average as she is strictly a one tone actress. Cameo of Amitabh Bachchan is refreshing but mandatory, courtesy Balki. Overall, PadMan is watchable for its exceptional subject.

Several Bollywood celebrities have watched the film at a special screening. The celebs have shared their reviews on social media. As always, Khiladi star impressed with his performance, the other actors have given their best as well. Let’s see the tweets of celebs who have reviewed the movie below:
