TOILET EK PREM KATHA – “Swach Se Pehle, Aadmi Ka Soch Badalna Hoga….” – (Translation) – Before getting a toilet, one must change their way of though about it. “TOILET EK PREM KATHA”, is an unusual story that is very relevant in today’s India, especially in rural parts of U.P. Bihar, and Mathura. In a modern progressive India, and in a democratic society, their are some places still where people live in medieval ways and in old ideologies that seem backward.
Actor -Akshay Kumar really picks quirky and unusual subjects these days, but he brings a heartfelt believable feel of that middle class character to life with sincerity on screen in this film. Can you believe some homes in this day of age have no toilets in their house? What is the Government and the Community doing to solve this issue? What if you get married, and you do not tell your newly wedded wife there is no toilet in the house? Instead you suggest to her to go poop at 4 am in the morning in the jungle with your lady neighbors, and make a “LOTA” party out of it.
That definitely does not go down well with the wife. But it becomes a wake up call for Keshav, played by Akshaye Kumar. actress – Bhumi Padnekar after “Dum Laga Ke Haisha” – proves herself in the role of his wife, as she walks out on him because of the lack of facilities that is now a common necessity for every human being to have in this day and age. She is defiant and inspires him to do something more about this on a national level. Both of them have acted with earnestness and with light humor this in the film.
This film is refreshingly new and unusual, and it does deserve a watch. Also you got to dig the funny and funky T-shirts that Akshaye wears in this film. Now where can you get them??. In the meantime go see this entertaining film finally. The film gets a 3 star recommendation. Courtesy Awesome TV & BEING FILMY.
