The trailer for the movie, Padman, starring Akshay Kumar, Radhika Apne and Sonam Kapoor has been released. Directed by R. Balki, Padman tells the story of Arunachalam Muruganatham who revolutionized the menstrual hygiene in rural areas, by making machines through which women could retrieve pads at low costs. The movie is based on the novel by Twinkle Khanna, titled The Legend of Lakshmi Prasad. The movie is going to be released on 26 January 2018. Now, as the trailer has been released for Padman, the promotions will be in full swing, until the the next year. Akshay, Sonam and Radhika have been promoting the movie on their social media platforms non stop and will be continuing to do so as more material is released from the movie.
The trailer for Padman is efficient and doesn’t make any digressions, it just shows that Muruganatham was a man who, with the support of his wife and other strong women, tried to change the ways in which menstruation is understood. He also spread more, and relevant information about Women’s hygiene and how they should try to keep their health in check even as they take care of the whole house.
The visuals of the trailer are down to earth, and Sonam Kapoor, known for her fashion diva avatars, looks lovely in down to earth clothes and has a more normal character to play this time in a movie. Radhika also looks great in a more traditional role. But the trailer focuses more on Akshay Kumar, and with good reasons, since he is the star and the reason for the movie to exist. The reception to the trailer is going to be very good, and its surely going to be receiving praise from women and other people who like socially conscious movies that focus on good issues and is also entertaining.
