Shubra Gupta | The Indian Express: 2/5
PadMan isn’t a particularly good film. It has tonal problems, swinging between commonplace-ness and flat-out filmi-ness, because it is trying to appeal to many constituencies at the same time ... Full Review

Renuka Vyavahare | Times of India: 3.5/5
Balki's Padman is an empowering film that gives you the wings, despite the odds. It will free women of their inhibitions and that will be its biggest success. Period! ... Full Review

Bollywood Hungama: 4/5
PAD MAN is a brave and an inspirational attempt at creating a commercial cinema out of a taboo topic. The movie scores high on content as well as emotions ... Full Review

Medha Chawla | Times Now: 3/5
कुछ मिलाकर पैडमैन एक अच्‍छी सोशल इशू वाली फ‍िल्‍म है। हां, अक्षय का दावा सही नहीं है कि ये पीर‍ियड्स पर बनने वाली पहली फ‍िल्‍म है लेकिन इस बात पर वह खरे उतरे हैं कि इस कमर्शल फ‍िल्‍म को वह डॉक्‍युमेंट्री बनने से बचा गए हैं! ... Full Review

example of how good causes may not always make great cinema ... Full Review

Shilpa Jamkhandikar | Reuters: 3/5
Yet, for all its flaws, “Padman”, much like its protagonist, puts in a sincere effort. It takes a subject that most Indians are reluctant to talk about and puts it on the marquee, and that alone is worth the applause ... Full Review

Chaya Unnikrishnan | DNAIndia: 3.5/5
While the subject itself lends to it, the storytelling is what makes the difference. An awkward and taboo subject has been dealt with sensitivity and even humour ... Full Review

IANS | Business Standard: 3/5
Social message laced with humour, out-and-out entertaining. But, the graph of the story is flat and the plot is laden with deus-ex-machinas in true Bollywood style ... Full Review

Sarath Ramesh Kuniyl | The Week: 3.5/5
Such shortcomings apart, Padman does justice to what it set out to do—try and break the taboo around menstruation ... Full Review

Tanul Thakur | The Wire: 2/5
'Pad Man' Could Have Been Inspirational, but Ends up Being Patronising Instead. The film needed the fine strokes of a deft artist. But filmmaker R. Balki and actor Akshay Kumar prefer the broad strokes of a novice ... Full Review

Medha Chakrabartty | The Quint: 3.5/5
Despite its demerits, the movie tugs at your heartstrings...because ‘Pad Man’ is about Arunachalam Muruganantham, the Coimbatore man who not only stood his ground and personally helped out as many women in need as possible, but also took a small step to prove to us that “sharam’’ (shame) shouldn’t be a woman’s greatest malady ... Full Review

The National: 3.5/5
'Pad Man' is worth a watch especially for its social message ... Full Review
