After a decent start, Akshay Kumar, Sonam Kapoor and Radhika Apte's PadMan ended the first weekend on a high. Not only has the film performed well at the domestic market, but the overseas box office too. At the domestic market, PadMan has raked in Rs 51.26 crore over the first three days, while it has collected Rs 15 crore in the overseas market. And while Akshay's latest release might not have broken any particular record at the domestic box office, it has achieved quite a few feats in the overseas market! In fact, after collecting $ 2.31 million (Rs 15 crore approx) in the international market, PadMan has been able to beat Toilet: Ek Prem Katha's collection ($ 1 million) over the first weekend. Considering that the latest release has a niche subject, was released in a limited screen space, had lesser buzz around it and was released on a non-holiday, PadMan has done the unthinkable.
People across the world have loved and raved about the engaging storyline, the heartwarming yet hard hitting message that the film gives out and the stellar performance delivered by Akshay Kumar. The critics have also praised the movie. Our Editor-In-Chief, Tushar P Joshi, also mentioned in his review, "Akshay Kumar delivers one of his finest performance in a film that breaks social taboos and stereotypes with finesse."
