    Time and again, Akshay Kumar has been making his way in Bollywood, showing movies on various out of the box, topics on no one will talk about. Padman is one such movie. Rather the only movie ever to talk about period openly. The story of Arunachalam Muruganatham, played by Akshay is a very promising character played by him. Even being a somewhat "taboo" topic to talk, i am actually proud this movie came out to people. Now what actually this movie lacks is its story line. Yes the man tries very hard to make the pad making machine. And also, the movie shows his problems he had to deal with. But even then the movie somehow lacks the real message. The real message was to make people understand that menstruation is a natural response of female body. Not just only about the man, which they were successful in doing. Even then, it is a great movie to watch as how our society takes menstruation to be.
