Finally, one of the most anticipated movies of the year, PadMan has released at the box office on Friday and as expected, getting super positive reviews. The hype it gained after the trailer, helped it to take smooth start across the country as well as overseas.
Starring superstar Akshay Kumar, Sonam Kapoor and Radhika Apte in lead roles, PadMan is being liked by everyone. The audience, as well as critics, are appreciating the entire team for making such a superb movie on a taboo subject- menstrual hygiene.
As per critics, the leading actors have performed outstandingly especially Akshay who is at his best in the movie. PadMan stands high on content, as well as emotions and prompts a relevant social message that dares to change age-old thinking.
On the first day, R.Balki’s directorial opened to a fair note and recorded around 20-25% of occupancy on 2750 screens across the country. Over the evening and night shows, it witnessed good growth in urban areas and registered the 16th highest opening of Akshay’s career with the amount of 10.26 crores at the domestic box office.
The opening business of PadMan is lesser than Akshay’s previous releases Toilet Ek Prem Katha (13.10 crores) and Jolly LLB 2 (13.20 crores). Both the movies had scored over 100 crores and emerged superhit because of favorable word of mouth.
As the word of mouth is quite positive for PadMan, so this biographical comedy-drama is positively expected to take noticeable growth over the weekend and remain steady in weekdays as well.
