DIRECTION: Shree Narayan Singh
Rating: 4/5 ☆☆☆☆

DURATION:2 hours 41 minutes

Akshay Kumar and an exciting social issue garnished with a pinch of satire have been the perfect recipe for a delicious blockbuster and following the same cookbook, comes out another delicacy, Toilet: Ek Prem Katha, but this time, a little uninteresting. :- Toilet Ek Prem Katha

The movie begins with a hard hitting scene of a group of women called the ‘Lota’ gang, who, every day at 4:30 am, marches to a not-so secluded field to defecate. And while they are ‘at work’, men in their tractors flash lights at them, Well, because of small town cheap thrills.

The main plot has a very cliché layout. The story, as evident through the trailers and the promotional spree, is about Keshav (Akshay Kumar) who belongs to an orthodox family, tied down to conformist traditions and customs. He falls in love with a feisty Jaya (Bhumi Pednekar) who, on the other hand, is well educated and belongs to a liberal family.

 

The duo gets married but as soon as Jaya finds out about the ghastly practice of open defecation, she decides to leave and not return until there’s a ‘toilet’ built in the house, which Keshav’s father (Sudhir Pandey) strongly condemns. Then begins a palpable voyage by Keshav to not only get a washroom built in his own house, but also a quest to spread awareness in his robust UP village with the help of his brother (Divyendu Sharma).

The movie overall is a consumable delivery packaged with moderately hitting speeches, rural connotations and a floppy structure which makes it a one-time watch. With nothing extraordinary to offer, the movie clumps its way in the first half and picks up after the interval. TEPK, although strolls through a predictable path, is a bearable watch and enjoyable to quite some extent.

An expected fine performance by Akshay Kumar was delivered as a 35-year-old small town gentleman. Bhumi Pednekar perfectly fits the shoes of an educated, feminist and feisty Jaya. But the perfect icing on the cake is the exceptional performances by Sudhir Pandey and Divyendu Sharma. Other factors such as Rajesh Sharma and Shubha Khote also ace their characters.

The film has three prominent songs – Hass Mat Pagli, Bakheda, Gori Tu Latth Maar and Subha Ki Train, which are perfectly placed and don’t break the flow of the story but blend in completely. The dialogues are thought to provoke and witty at the same time, which successfully keeps the audience gripped.

Toilet: Ek Prem Katha is a decent delivery by Shree Narayan Singh who although chose a perfect cast for a strapping subject, couldn’t team it up with an equally radiant storyline.

Overall:– The movie Toilet Ek Prem Katha has a message and I believe it is a must watch for Indians they will realize what is the condition of India right now.
