'Toilet: Ek Prem Katha’, starring Akshay Kumar and Bhumi Pednekar, directed by Shree Narayan Singh put up the great idea to build a love story to address a social issue. Too many references to Swachh Bharat, the Prime Minister of the country and even demonatisation make you question the real intention of the film.

The story begins when a ‘maanglik’ guy is married to a buffalo to get his stars in the right position. Then, Keshav(Akshay Kumar) meets a college topper Jaya(Bhumi Pednekar) and falls for her.

Despite successfully getting married, Jaya leaves her husband on the first day of their marriage after discovering that he doesn’t have a toilet. He desperately sets out on a mission to win back his love by standing up to the age-old traditions and values of India.

Yes, you might be hearing the word ‘toilet’ multiple time throughout the film but you will soon get comfortable with it. Overall, it is a good entertaining film. Akshay Kumar and Bhumi Pednekar have a sparkling chemistry in the film. Anupam Kher and Sana Khan are seen in supporting roles.

'Toilet: Ek Prem Katha' shows a tendency to give moral advice as the socially relevant film tackles the important subject of building and using toilets in the country. The film which released on Friday amidst great expectations is getting the mixed reviews.
