Movie Review: Toilet Ek Prem Katha – A Toilet That's A Must Visit

   Toilet Ek Prem Katha is a story that strongly drives home a point, a point that deals with sanitation, a point that deals with women and their safety. 
 
   For starters, the film is all about Keshav Sharma (Akshay Kumar) and the love of his life, Jaya Sharma (Bhumi Pednekar). Post their marriage, Jaya walks out on him because his house does not have a toilet. Jaya takes this a bit further and makes this a ground to file for a divorce.
 
   However, Keshav takes it upon himself only to save him marriage, but also to educate his fellow villages about the importance of a toilet in their homes. 
 
   One needs to applaud director Shree Narayan Singh for putting this on together. The film has been inspired by a real-life incident, where in Priyanka Rai had walked out on her husband Lalchand. Today, the couple is busy spreading awareness amongst villages for a toilet in their homes. 
 
   This film has been beautifully crafted by writer-duo Siddharth-Garima, who have been successful in striking a balance between entertainment and education.
 
Apart from Akshay Kumar and Bhumi Pednekar, Toilet Ek Prem Katha also boasts of some memorable Sudhir Pandey (Pandit Ji), Divyendu Sharma (Naru) and last but not the least Anupam Kher (Kakka). 
 
All said and done, it’s sad to know that around 58% of Indians practice open defecation. Guess it’s time we realise the importance for a toilet in our homes.
