This film is made on very serious topic but yet having entertaining elements in place. I would say Toilet/Padman: these are films which can bring bigger changes than any great Prime-Minister. I was surprised that it never bores you, and makes you feel proud of for passion of the guy who transformed a love into cause for society. Hope we get more and more such films.And whole india watch it not today than in time of decade time-frame....

Topic that need to be talked...Reviewed byDhairya BapodraVote: 9/10
There is a dialogue in the movie - "If you are not facing problem, you are not living your life properly". India is a huge country with diverse culture, religion and faith with its own issue and circumstances. But does all the belief and faith hold the right message ? Padman explores that ..
Padman, based on one of the short story "The Sanitary Man of Sacred Land" written by Twinkle Khanna, tells the extraordinary story of an ordinary man , Lakshmi Prasad (Akshay Kumar), who changed the life of rural women in India by devising low-cost machine to build sanitary pads.
Directed by R.Balki, who gave us some critically acclaimed films like Cheeni Kum and Paa, Padman is a bold step to explore the subject of menstruation and sanitary pads which is considered taboo in India. The film starts of very well with few scenes bringing smile on your face - Lakshmi Prasad buying the pads for his wife first time from a local medical shop, Lakshmi saving the life of his fellow-worker at the factory and even when he is trying to build the pads by using the cotton and leaves. The passion and determination of Lakshmi to know how the pad works and trying to make his wife and sisters use it will keep you glued to the screen. While the first half boast of some great scenes, the second half is a roller-coaster ride which stumbles down but picks up later in the climax. There are various reasons - the romance between Sonam Kapoor and Akshay Kumar is half-baked and out of place, the weird of Sonam Kapoor is itself does not make much impact, the lengthy pace and few unwanted scenes. Even the songs by Amit Trivedi is disappointing as none of it has chartburster touch (coming as a surprise from such a talented musician). Despite these hiccups, the impact of movie overall is a good as it helps to understand the pain what women goes through during those five days of period, especially a learning lesson for men. Though, it is okay to talk about it in Urban India, the subject is extremely sensitive in the rural India even though we are living in 21st Century.
The screenplay is decent while editing is good, though trimming of few scenes and songs could have helped. Art direction is splendid while Cinematography is outstanding capturing the beautiful locations in Madhya Pradesh. Padman belongs to one and the only Akshay Kumar. The actor is just challenging himself to do good films on social cause and entertaining us with his superb performance. Though, he went overboard during one of the scene when he introduces his invention at the National Innovation Foundation conference, he will win your heart with a staggering speech at the United Nation ceremony, New York. Radhika Apte gives adequate support to her role. Sonam Kapoor, as usual, over-acted and does not justice to her character at all. I wish, the makers could have taken someone better.
Padman is a refreshing journey of Arunachalam Muruganantham which should be lauded for its boldness and message for a cause. Good 3/5
I applaud director Mr. R. Balki for exploring and making aware the people about this huss huss talked subject, which is still a taboo in most peoples mind, ironically it should have been treated as a blessing. Shockingly, this snaitary pad issue has been much less talked than diapers. I am unable to understand that, this film is based on a real person Arunachal Muruganatham, based in Coimbtore then what was need to shift it in Madhay Pradesh, perhaps for subsidy! But it indirectly subsides the contribution of the genius and caring man behind this innovation. Film clearly lack it entertainment quotient which makes it slow. Most of time just information has been passed but in few scenes it has its hidden cute moments like when protagonist is looking for prospect to trail and attempts to convince different religion girls for it. First turning point comes with over drama when male lead tries it on himself but fails then he jumps into river which leads a social boycott. Similarly, when he designed its proper version then suddenly girls come to him asking for medical shop sounds too surreal. Pre climax speech is too preachy. After all this film should have been watched, talked to help in accepting the pad issue as essential part of life. Performance wise Akshay Kumar is first rate. Radhika Apte is pitch perfect as his wife. Sonam Kapoor is very cute and balanced.
