Finally, a mainstream Bollywood movie that addresses menstruation

Over 50% young Indian women still use cloth as protection during periods will the movie ‘Pad Man’ do the magic

His latest release Padman with Sonam Kapoor and Radhika Apte is getting exceptional feedback from critics and audiences alike after the initial premieres.

Akshay Kumar has unveiled the curtain raiser for his much anticipated new film PAD MAN which releases in North American theaters on February 9.

At one point, Gayatri even asks him, "What kind of a man has his life trapped between a woman's legs?" before walking out on him.

There is absolutely no doubt that the subject and the intention of the film is applause-worthy. The makers of the film made a post in Instagram saying, padmanthefilmAn effort full of honesty and a hope to change the age-old thinking of society around Periods. Think walking into a store to buy something as essential as sanitary napkins and hesitating to say it loud enough for even the man at the counter to be able to hear you.

Based on the life of social entrepreneur Arunachalam Muruganantham, R Balki directorial "PadMan" starring Akshay Kumar, Radhika Apte, and Sonam Kapoor released today. Akshay Kumar is perhaps one of the most underrated actors in the industry. A little nuance (about how menstruation is not just a physically painful occurrence but an instrument to keep women firmly in their place) would have gone a long way in making PadMan deeper and more satisfyingly complex, but this is not that kind of film. When an actor doing a biopic of a person, it is very tempting for an actor to study his body language and to see how he talks or walks but Akshay didn't look any of that. All of these things really did happen to the original and quite remarkable Muruganantham, and he did persevere in the face of all kinds of opposition. All the best to you, Akshay for this movie. He delivers on every front and is the soul of the film.

Then, Radhika continued talking about people who criticised Padman Challenge.

With PadMan now finally in theatres, Twinkle Khanna's virtuosity as a producer and author is all set to be tested. "How often Bollywood gets chance to promote a cause unless it's for a film?"

At pharmacies and department stores, tampons and sanitary pads get the same treatment reserved for condoms - they are handed to customers discretely wrapped in black plastic bags kept on hand simply for the objective of saving them any embarrassment.
