Interestingly enough, PadMan’s plotline and subject matter is a totally unique concept which has never been explored by films, particularly in India. It’s about an illiterate man who comes to realize that menstruation is treated as a disease and there is a need to make people aware of the facts and ensure menstrual hygiene among the females of his town.
There is already a buzz about the film and reports suggest that it’s going to do a great job at the Box Office. It’s quite delightful and a sign of a progressive society that people are actually ready to discuss female hygiene and be informed about the subject matter.
