Earlier scheduled for Republic Day, Akshay Kumar shifted the launch of PadMan to February 9 to accommodate Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmaavat. The film started robust at the box office and has managed to continue to be consistent by means of the week. PadMan has now earned Rs 52.04 crore in the initially five times but will now witness some hard opposition at the box office.
With Sidharth Malhotra and Manoj Bajpayee starrer Aiyaary and Marvel’s Black Panther starring Chadwick Boseman releasing on February 16, PadMan’s posture at the box office might be threatened. From what we have witnessed in the previous, a Marvel film has all the goods to shake a Hindi film’s box office earnings. If the same will materialize in PadMan’s circumstance, it is yet to be witnessed.
Directed by R Balki, PadMan is encouraged by the tale of Arunachalam Muruganantham, the man who started a revolution by generating a reduced-cost sanitary pad-earning device. Arunachalam’s tale was also the inspiration driving producer Twinkle Khanna’s short tale, The Legend of Laxmi Prasad. Together with Akshay Kumar, PadMan also stars Sonam Kapoor and Radhika Apte.
Indianexpress.com’s Shubhra Gupta gave the film 2 stars out of 5 and mentioned, “PadMan is as worthy, but it isn’t a particularly good film. It has tonal complications, swinging in between commonplace-ness and flat-out filmi-ness, for the reason that it is making an attempt to enchantment to a lot of constituencies at the same time: a tune to celebrate the onset of menstruation of a minor female employs the problematic term ‘nakel’, which usually means ‘to be led by the nose’.”
