Toilet Ek Prem Katha movie review : Rarely does there come a film which carries a political message but also does not promote it out-rightly.
As seen in the recent release, ‘Indu Sarkar’, the film was critical of a particular section of the Indian politics. Toilet: Ek Prem Katha, starring Akshay Kumar is a satirical comedy supporting the PM Modi headed ‘Swach Bharat Abhiyaan‘ and takes up the issue of sanitation in rural areas is made out to be a comic film with a message.
The film ran into controversy earlier when Praveen Vyas, a filmmaker had sent legal notice to the makers. The filmmaker claimed that ‘Toilet: Ek Prem Katha’ had copied scenes and dialogues from his documentary ‘Manini’ based on the same topic. But, while controversies seem to dwindle with time, the anticipation around the release of the film has increased with time.
The film which stars Akshay Kumar whose last release ‘Naam Shabana’ was a sleeper hit at the box office while Bhumi Pednekar who stars opposite Kumar in the film recieved success with her debut film ‘Dum Laga Ke Haisha’. The story is a simple one inspired by real events where Pednekar’s character falls in love with Akshay Kumar’s and they marry but problems ensue when she realises that she has to walk a long distance to defecate because of the lack of bathroom at home. She leaves her in-law’s home and demands a toilet to come back home.
Bollywood trade analysts have predicted that the film will be a blockbuster. Girish Johar in a chat with indianexpress.com said, “I am expecting a good number. Somewhere between Rs 13 to Rs 15 crore on Friday. By the end of the weekend, it would be ideal if the film crosses the half century mark (Rs 50 crore mark).”
Director Shree Narayan Singh is hopeful about the film since it tackles social issues in a comic way driving through an important message for the viewers. He said, “The kind of subject we were making if we would have made it on small level may be we would not be able to reach the wider audience. So we needed a known face for the film. We had not written the film keeping anyone in mind. But after Akshay came on board we tweaked the film a bit, just five-ten per cent. We changed things according to his aura and personality. But at the same time we did not add things to commercialise the film.”
Bhumi Pednekar will be next seen alongside her ‘Dum Laga Ke Haisha’ co-star Ayushmann Khurana in ‘Shubh Mangal Saavdhan’ which will tackle the issue of erectile dysfunction. Akshay Kumar will be seen in ‘Padman’ and Rajinikanth’s 2.0 next after Toilet: Ek Prem Katha in theater.
Here’s the trailer for the film,
