Review of Toilet Ek Prem Katha:
Most of the people who consider the toilets in their houses for granted, this film has given a tight slap to those. Most of the Indians especially villagers practice open defecation and this concept is brought into light in the form of a film. Filmmaker Shree Narayan Singh brilliantly holds up a clear mirror to the society, presenting how the superstitious and orthodox villagers, corrupt politicians and lazy administration have converted this nation into the largest shit-pond in the world. Nothing to be surprised, here women are being treated insensitively than the cattle.
This movie is nothing but a satirical step on the old tradition of hunting fields to unload the excess burden. Actually, it looks like a documentary on the topic sanitization. Instead of toilet Ek Prem Katha is a strong love story maintaining the balance between educating and entertaining. Writer duo- Garima- Siddharth takes the audiences through an eye opening venture of how people need to make toilet especially for the ladies of their home through the dramatic conflicts between Jaya and Keshav, the lead couple- followed by those between the Panditji and Pandit’s elder son. The casual relationship between two brothers Keshav (Akshay Kumar) and Naru (Divyendu) is also enjoyable and beautiful. Not to forget, the war of the protagonist against the entire village just for a latrine. The great thing is that every feature of rustic Uttar Pradesh life is beautifully captured through the naughty Kaka and the ubiquitous sarpanch (the head of the village).
Akshay Kumar is certainly the backbone of this mockery. Journey as an artist is marvelous and he delivers another top quality performance. One star in the reason is truly his. On the other hand, Bhumi is apt in her portrayal of the bubbly-lively Jaya and Divyendu is also a terrific actor. The presence of the veteran actors, Anupam Kher and Sudhir Pandey, is just unmissable. If we are talking about the screenplay than it is peppered with lots of lol moments though balanced rightly with the emotional outbursts. And as a bonus the audiences will find a hummable soundtrack once again with Gori tu lath maar, Bakheda, and Hans mat page.
This movie has got 3.5 stars out of 5 which is not bad at all. So if you want to watch it a different type of film this time, then please visit your nearest theatre and watch Toilet Ek Prem Katha. And one more thing, we all should raise voice about what our country people do publicly.
