CRITIC'S RATING: 4.0/5
AVG READERS' RATING: 4.8/5

CAST:Akshay Kumar, Bhumi Pednekar, Divyendu, Sudhir Pandey, Anupam Kher
DIRECTION:Shree Narayan Singh
GENRE:Drama
DURATION:2 hours 41 minutes

A VISIT TO THIS TOILET IS A MUST

STORY: Go-getter Keshav (Akshay) serenades liberal-thinker Jaya (Bhumi), a woman from his neighbouring village in Uttar Pradesh. They marry but it doesn’t strike Keshav to tell her that his house doesn’t have a toilet. This then becomes the grounds for Jaya to file for a divorce.

REVIEW: For most of us who take the toilets in our homes for granted, the burning issue of 58% Indians practising open defecation could be a flush-worthy concept. But, director Shree Narayan Singh holds up a mirror to society, showing us how our superstitious villagers, lazy administration and corrupt politicians have actually converted India into the world’s largest shit-pond. Women especially, are treated more insensitively than cattle!

Toilet Ek Prem Katha: 5 Reasons to watch Akshay Kumar-Bhumi Pednekar movie this Friday

Akshay Kumar and Bhumi Pednekar film 'Toilet Ek Prem Katha' is ready to cash on four days holiday weekend

After the debacle of Shah Rukh Khan-Anushka Sharma starrer 'Jab Harry Met Sejal', all eyes are on Akshay Kumar and Bhumi Pednekar's 'Toilet Ek Prem Katha'. Khiladi of the box office has been churning superhits back to back, but this time is hoping to create an impact in the society with his social satire. Directed by Shree Narayan Singh, this film tells the story which has been seldom told before. Lending it's support to PM Narendra Modi's Swachch Bharat Abhiyaan, Toilet Ek Prem Katha is a satirical take on a battle against age old tradition of open defecation in the country. From the panchayat to the sanitation department, from the role of the government to the superstitions of the people living in rural India. Toilet Ek Prem Katha is a true story and mainly Keshav and Jaya's love story.

We give you five reasons to watch the Friday release

Akshay Kumar is telling the story, everyone else refused: From being known as Khiladi Kumar of Bollywood to telling stories about the common man and his struggles, Akshay Kumar has come a long way. This time he has backed a socially relevant film which every actor in the industry refused to do. The actor told reporter, "The writers brought the subject to me. Interestingly, this script was doing the rounds in the industry for over four years. It went to a lot of heroes, a lot of people but nobody picked it up." And he has done the film and promoting it with full gutso. From building toilets in different parts of the country to releasing a Toilet anthem called 'Toilet ka Jhugaad', Akki has surely made toilet jokes sound cool this time around and with the right intention.


Bhumi Pednekar's comeback after two years : In February 2015, YRF launched an overweight actress in 'Dum Laga Ke Haisha'. Bhumi Pednekar not only won awards for Best Debut but even stole our hearts for an unconventional start at the movies. Now, extra kilos down, Bhumi is paired with Akshay Kumar for yet another story from the heartland of India. She plays a strong headed bride again who walks out of his in-laws house since they do not have a toilet in the house. So expect her to role to be much more than the usual song and dance routine once again.

‘Yeh sattar minute tumhe zindagi bhar yaad rahenge.’ Shah Rukh Khan’s momentous lines in Chak De! India (CDI), which celebrates completing a decade today, went on to hold true not just for the on-screen women hockey players, but also the girls who essayed those characters in one of the biggest hits and most revered Hindi films. The film holds a special place in each actress’ heart, as they all admit that not a day goes by when a reference to the 2007 Yash Raj Films’ sports drama directed by Shimit Amin doesn’t pop up. Bootcamp, being charmed by SRK (obviously!), and spending the year living like sisters, it’s all fresh in their memories. “In the seconds that flash before my eyes when my life comes to an end, the bootcamp will definitely have about half a second,” Shilpa Shukla (Bindiya Naik) laughs.
