akshay kumar in PadMan Akshay Kumar starrer PadMan can work its magic during the weekend.

PadMan, starring Akshay Kumar, Radhika Apte and Sonam Kapoor, has started off its box office journey on a positive note. The film, which had earned Rs 10.26 crore on its opening day, has managed to mint Rs 13.68 crore on Saturday, taking its total to Rs 23.94 crore. The R Balki directorial has shown an upward trend in terms of business, it is to be seen if the film would become yet another sleeper hit from Akshay Kumar.

Trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted, “#PadMan makes RAPID STRIDES on Sat… Picks up SPEED… Biz should be STRONG on Sun too… HEALTHY weekend is on the cards… Fri 10.26 cr, Sat 13.68 cr. Total: ₹ 23.94 cr. India biz.”

PadMan might ring in more money for the makers during the weekend, as people will flock in greater numbers to see Akshay Kumar in his latest venture. In a conversation with Indianexpress.com, trade analyst Girish Johar had said that PadMan is expected to improve its numbers during the weekend, and if all goes well, the movie might enter Rs 50 crore club in its opening weekend itself.

Earlier, PadMan was supposed to release during the Republic Day weekend along with Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone’s Padmaavat. But Akshay had stalled the release of his movie to help Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s movie see the light of the day in peace.

Film critic Shubhra Gupta has given the movie two stars, and thinks the movie, despite having good intentions, isn’t particularly good.

“PadMan is as worthy, but it 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: a song to celebrate the onset of menstruation of a little girl uses the problematic word ‘nakel’, which means ‘to be led by the nose’. The song gives the perennially weepy Gayatri to swing her waist, but achieves little else. The arrival of perky city girl Pari (Kapoor) perks up the proceedings, even if she is used to invoke a clumsy, after-the-thought romantic angle,” the review read.

      Tomorrow the picture named condom will draw 1000 crores. This can not be subject of a cinema. The ladies 100 years back used to use cloth and they used to be clean and hyginic. Now there is a big problem how to distroy pads and one of the major issue in soild waste management. But public, just looking at name go and see with imagination that they can see something interesting. Same thing will happen if someone names his film condom, copper t, nasabandi, mala d etc. The subject is not appreciable and i will not be surprised if we notice after few years that cinema was sponcered by pad mfg co.

        Every one can have expectation on what topic movies can be made and what is magnanimous and what is ridiculous in their opinion. they are called "Intellectuals". Normal people watch the movie if they like. It is not a porno movie. It was just talking about great effort made by a man when there was a sensitive problem. If it is well made, people watch. For that matter even Condom was a utility which was not there earlier and was introduced for safe sex. If anyone makes the movie with good script people will watch.

          Condom is the need of the day. One third of size of China, India soon have more population than China. Only up has more population than Brazil which is 3 times bigger than India. India just can't afford any more people. 50-60 crores people live like animal, eat, sh t, sleep, breed. They need to be upgraded to human standard. That needs trillion of dollars and 100s of organization. Where it will come from.

          That is the problem, you are living 100 years back. Brain is frozen. Indians need to be civilised, modernised. It is not the country, it is it's citizens need to be improved. Then only we can have a country free of child rapists, women murderers, stalkers. Please don't get angry. I am telling Truth.
