#Padman is a awakening and educating film...which was a biopic of muruganantham from coimbatore ... It's good attempt but execution was bad.. #Akshay is the saviour..total one-man show 🙏👌
Less humour..than previous outings..toilet etc it's more like discovery channel docu..

#PadMan - 1st half of the film is a little overbearing due to many dramatic elements that seem a bit repetitive. However 2nd half has a lot more interesting episodes as PadMan takes his journey to the next level. As for climax, it is very very entertaining

If #AkshayKumar single handedly held #Padman ,the lovely @sonamakapoor wit her understated ebullience stood solid,supporting him.
2.0 GOLD @AkkiTheMegastar
Watched #Padman yesterday. Akki sir deserves a big applause for his performance, especially his 10 mins speech. Excellent movie overall. Never expected it to be this good and also first time I liked Sonam's acting. 4.5 stars @akshaykumar
#Padman gives such a great message but sadly, my neighbour being a man of a doctor asked us(my family) where are you back from and we said @PadManTheFilm and the akward silence said it all. Will the thought ever change in India? @akshaykumar @sonamakapoor @radhika_apte
