The much-awaited trailer of Akshay Kumar-starrer Padman is released on Friday and critics and are quite impressed by it.

Directed by R Balki, Padman is a movie based on the life of Arunachalam Muruganantham, who brought a revolution by introducing a low-cost sanitary napkin machine for rural women, who do not have access to menstrual hygiene products.

The critics are praising Akshay's comic timing and also the overall treatment of the film. Some even said the trailer of Padman is good enough to make the audience already decide to watch it in the theatres. It is also being said that Padman will bring accolades to Akki more than what Toilet: Ek Prem Katha did.

The film will feature Akshay in the central role, while Sonam Kapoor and Radhika Apte will playing two pivotal characters. See what the critics have to say about it:
