He collects the raw materials for the quilts from nearby places and in addition to this, he also get the stuff the women in his village need. He gets married and his mom and wife want him to get placed in a good job in a city. But, Phullu doesn’t want it. He notices his wife taking out a particular cloth from the material he collects for the quilt. She suffers from itching while using the fabric. However, he couldn’t understand why. One day he got to know it from a lady doctor, whom he meets at a pharmacy. Soon, he understands the use of the sanitary pads and buys them from the money, which his mother gave him to pay for the final installment of jewelry for his sister’s marriage. His mother turns angry and throws him out. Later, he goes to the lady doctor, who educated him about the sanitary pads and learned to make the sanitary pads. Meanwhile, his wife is pregnant. When he gives his sanitary product to his mother and sister, they refuse to use it and the same does the women in his village. Did he manage to educate those women? The answer to the question makes the crux of the story.
Sharib Hashmi has played his part well. Nutan Surya’s comical performance is a relief in the documentary type movie. Inaamulhaq’s cameo appearance is unexpected and he has done his part well.
Although the film comes with a good message, it sounds like a documentary in many places. Abhishek Saxena’s script resembles that of Padman by Arunachalam Muruganandham.
What’s Not There?
Phullu comes with a social message. For some people, it might be useful and for some others, it might be an unwanted stuff.
