Toilet-Ek Prem Katha Trailer Review

| June 12, 2017 | 0 Comments

Let me make it very clear. Toilet-Ek Prem Katha has no connection whatsoever with Gaddar-Ek Prem Katha, except for the tagline. Two films are as disparate as Tolet is from Toilet.

Its a story set in rural heartland of our Bharat Mahaan.

Based on true incidents it tells the story of a girl Bhumi Pednekar marrying her suitor after much of wooing, resistance that seems to have some fresh moments.

As Bhumi the bride lands at her in-laws home, she is horrified to find that to answer nature’s call one has to go to the fields.

That raises her heckles. She serves an ultimatum either there is a toilet in the house or else.!

Now this is the price lovelorn Akshay Kumar is willing to pay. One dialogue says it all- Log pyar mein tajmahal banwa dete hain, main ek toilet nahin banwa sakta!

How he goes about getting the toilet culture brought to the village is rest of the story about.

When one is not out in the open answering nature’s call, one is made familiar to toilet humour, outdated values, traditions, red tapism in getting the funds and files through.

You get to see action, that has something to do with molestation of women who have to face the indignity of defecating in the open, plus the terrifying consequences.

Its realistic setup suddenly becomes larger than life while celebrating festivals and depicting action.

In times of Swachh Bharat Abhiyaan, it is topical and may get brownie points for being politically correct.

In terms of telling a story, editor-director Narayani Singh has gone to keep it simple with no pyrotechnics and gimmickry indulged in.

Akshay Kumar seems on SOP- standard operating procedure mode. His characterisation seems nothing exceptional.

Bhumi Pednekar looks fresh.

Toilet-Ek Prem Katha’s trailer leaves nothing to imagination.That is perhaps its Achilles heel. It gives no relief, literally.
