Pad Man is an inspiring tale of a man feeling the pain of a woman and thriving to make the world a better place for them while they battle the many things that they have to go through for being a woman. It is based on Arunachalam Muruganantham’s drive to provide hygienic and cheap sanitary napkins to women who can’t afford the expensive ones and make a difference in their lives, has been applauded world over. Akshay Kumar portrays him in the film. The makers released a new song today which has the actor trying to devise a formula to come up with such unique pads. He invests, invents, thinks, gets bruised, but continues to go on with his work. At the end of the song, it pays tribute to the real padman himself.
It is really amazing to hear Mohit Chauhan after a long time. There was a time when every film album used to have a song by him but it has become pretty scant lately. So this inspirational track makes us welcome Mohit Chauhan again to our playlist. The video begins with Akshay trying to figure ways to make a pad. You can see him thinking, pondering, looking for a new way, all throughout. But we liked the bit at the last the most. Arunachalam Muruganantham deserves every applause that he is receiving. Check out the song right here… (Also read: Padmavat vs Padman: R Balki feels it is SILLY to have such a box office clash in a small industry like Bollywood)
Pad Man has everything a film needs to make a point at the box office during the Republic Day weekend. There is Akshay Kumar, whose association with this date has become quite legendary. His films have always minted money during this holiday period. Then there is a social message in the film. Lately, Akshay has been part of movies that say something to the audience. Toilet Ek Prem Katha thus became his highest grosser. Pad Man too looks poised for similar glory.
