"PadMan is a film about those who need to take things apart in order to build something better," film critic Raja Sen wrote in his review. He gave the film four-star rating. PadMan is based on the life of innovator Arunachalam Muruganantham, who invented low cost sanitary pad making machine. Akshay's character Lakshmi depicts Muruganantham's struggle to bring about a significant change in the life of rural women who couldn't afford sanitary pads. In the process, he breaks several stereotypes and menstrual myths, which even today, stop several women from their day-to-day activities.
