Finally it is here and truly worth the wait. Yes, we are talking about Akshay Kumar and Bhumi Pednekar starrer ‘Toilet: Ek Prem Katha’. The movie deals with a socially relevant problem of open defecation and promotes Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Swachh Bharat Abhiyaan project. It is an unusual love story that revolves around a newly married couple and how lack of toilet in the house lands their marriage & love life in trouble.

Story Of The Movie:

‘Toilet :Ek Prem Katha’ begins when a ‘maanglik’ guy is married to a buffalo to get his stars in the right position. Akshay plays Keshav he gets married to Jaya(Bhumi) an excellant academic record student. Soon after her marriage, Jaya is introduced to the lota gang, a group of women who defecate in the open. Jaya retaliates and leaves Keshav’s home due to the absence of proper toilet at his residence. Later, Keshav takes Jaya’s cause forward and convinces his family and the people of his town to build toilets in their home and stop open defacation.

Star Performance:

Akshay Kumar’s comic timing is bang on. The actor knows his fans and treats to them. He easily glides through the film as a simple man with his heart in the right place. Bhumi Pednekar who had made an impressive debut with Dum Laga Ke Haisha has once again embark her epic performance as a strong-willed lady who challenges male stereotypes. As an aggressive rebel, she has an in-depth command over her role. She is convincing as a small town girl. Akshay and Bhumi’s chemistry is truly scintillating.

The other members of the cast too are convincing in their roles. Special mention to Divyendu Sharma, who plays the role of Akshay Kumar’s brother and stands with him throughout the film. Anupam Kher as the naughty granddad is endearing. But we would have loved to see some more of him. Sudhir Pandey as an adamant, traditionalist dad complement the lead pair.

Director’s Performance:

Director Shree Narayan Singh unfolds the story in an ordinary way though sermonizing is impactful.

Music Of The Movie:

The film’s music, is strictly average and does not gave any involvent of feelings to audience. The movie needs to be trimmed a little to decrease the length.

Watch or Not:

The first half of the film is intriguing but the other half tends to get a bit yanky. On the whole the film is a good watch.
