Divyendu Sharma arrives for the special screening. Could Akshay Kumar deliver another powerful performance? This issue of open defecation creates a lot of problems in their married life which leads to their separation.
Bhumi appeared in an off-shoulder red outfit while Akshay looked dapper in a formal shirt and pants. The Akshay you saw in Airlift, Baby, Rustom and Jolly LLB 2 is entirely paradox from what you're going to see in Toilet: Ek Prem Katha. The film not only preaches through melodrama and dialogue baazi, but it also succeeds in blaming women and absolving the government of the lack of toilets in India. Overall income of the film successfully surpassed the 100 crore mark within three weeks of its release. Does Keshav get her back? And then later on, he finds Jaya (Bhoomi Pednekar) who is an educated girl.
Yes, such a film, on a commercial scale, needed this positive end, but as most of the film is real and gritty, and there are lovely touches, especially to Keshav's character evolution with even some gray streaks shown earlier, the film could have been shown a gradual and more convincing turnaround towards the village's attitudes. Yes it comes with a degree of suspension of disbelief to imagine a 49-year old Akshay Kumar going gol gappas over the DUM LAGA KE reduced kiya weight Bhumi Pednekar (less kilos more charm) the U. Toilet: Ek Prem Katha is the true story of a common man and as the saying goes, truth can be stranger than fiction. Keshav's life seems to be on the right path as he gets married to Jaya but Jaya's life turns upside down when she discovers that Keshav's house has no toilet.
Sad, because Jaya and Keshav are the sort of people who are worthy of a film sans socially reprehensible formulae. It was his first work as Director and getting Akshay Kumar signed is really a big deal for him which he performed really well. Escalating in to the extended weekend, the film is supposed to get a jump of over two folds on 15th August (National Holiday). Our film critic, Smrity Sharma in her 3 star review wrote, "The film starts off well and keeps you entertained in the first half but gets too preachy for comfort post interval". However, one thing that can hamper Toilet Ek Prem Katha's impact is its repetitiveness.
