The movie with the story of a real-life hero will be releasing this Friday, Feb 9 and the story revolves around the issue of menstrual hygiene. After several attempts, his irate wife refuses to be a part of his experiments. I have no money in my pocket to hire a famous lawyer but I promise to pay a heavy amount after I win this battle.
Watching Padman's trailer felt like a confirmation of what I had been expecting from this movie ever since I heard about it early previous year. Much as I count myself as a liberal mind, it was an awkward thought imagining to watch scenes and dialogues of women's menstrual problems with the teens. It's unbelievable that over 20% of girls drop out of school due to their periods and that only 12% of women in India have access to sanitary pads. So, what you get is a mix of social awareness campaign and a humorous take on the fears and apprehensions associated with sanitary napkins. The ever energetic actor made us laugh with his "paisa vasool" performance, just like Akshay's film Toilet: Ek Prem Katha.
"I was a part of a show wherein a lady said she runs more when she is on her period so that no one can tell her to sit at home because she is weak", she said.

Amit Trivedi's music also flirts effortlessly through the plot for some relief just when the viewer has soaked up the gravity of the plot.
In case you missed out, here's the trailer of the film that has created quite a stir on social media even before its official theatrical release.
Dow plunges more than 1100 points in biggest one-day decline
The market, now in its second-longest bull run of all time, had not seen a correction for two years, an unusually long time. It could prompt the Federal Reserve to raise interest rates at a faster pace, which would act as a brake on the economy.
I feel his music is so fitting to any script he has directed music for especially in Pad Man. This is an extremely inspiring story.
Most importantly, it discounts the work of activists and people who have spent time, resources and hard work, to not only crumble the stigma around menstruation but to educate people about it, to teach them fact from myths, making sanitary products available and accessible to thousands of women.
One of the most interesting things I think, is that you are telling this important story but also in an entertaining way, what went into that decision? Amit Virmani's 2013 docu-film, Menstrual Man, was about Muruganantham.
