PadMan has its premise in place. Now if only it had some wings

Akshay Kumar Delivers Gutsy Performance In Flawed But Well-Intentioned Film
This is a dramatised biopic of India's sanitary 'Pad' man, who in his quest for making cheaper sanitary napkins for his wife, suffered socially, was ostracised and then ultimately acknowledged for his innovation. Akshay Kumar does a fabulous job as small town inventor but the story comes together only in the second half with the arrival of Sonam Kapoor who guides him to greatness. If you can endure the slow, unmoving first half, this film is socially relevant.

Parts of Pad Man look like a Vicco Turmeric commercial, parts of it look like a Tourism Ad and parts of it like a commercial for Etihad Airlines. But almost all of it, unmistakably, sounds like one big town-hall message

Adding commercial dose to it might do the trick for 100crore, but that doesn’t give that authentic touch to the biography
