What do you expect from a medium budget film? Comedy, humour, songs, romance etc and what If you get something extra Content like, a never tried social awareness subject like Open dedication in entertaining and then turning social movement way along, obviously it is much more than what our ticket purchase deserves and that’s what has exactly happened with Toilet Ek Prem Katha.
TEPK is a story of Keshav (Akshay Kumar), a high school dropout who lives in a village of north India and manages his family’s bicycle store. He loves a girl named Jaya (Bhumi Pednekar), who also starts loving him and both get married. On the very first of their marriage, Jaya discover that Keshav doesn’t have toilet in his house.
She denies to defecate in open and asks Keshav to build a toilet inside. But his father (Sudhir Pandey) claims that it is against their culture and he won’t allow to defecate in the house. Because of this, Jaya decides to leave her marital house and then Keshav takes a stand against this age-old tradition to win his love back.
Akshay Kumar is in terrific form once again as an Actor as well as with his script sense. Bhumi is much more confident than her previous outing and delivers a power packed performance. All Supporting actors have been more than useful. Music is Average still video songs never makes you bore especially ‘Has Mat Pagli’ in 1st half is completely situational and grippy, ‘Latth Mar’ in 2nd half is catchy.
Editing and Direction is done by the same man so i must talk about it in details. Dear Shree Narayan Singh you were excellent as editor and director throughout 2 hours then why did you lose the tempo and impact in last 20-25 minutes. I mean there was no need to stretch the pretty much predictable climax with some Government promotional scenes.
Overall, TEPK is yet another Good film from Akshay Kumar, one who loves watching good films must admit that Akshay is having a Best script sense in Bollywood now days after Aamir Khan. He succeeds again to disappoint his haters and will succeed again to bring neutral people to theaters by ending recent dry spell at Box Office. As a whole, Toilet Ek Prem Katha just doesn’t remain film, it becomes a Social Movement and i salute makers for choosing a challenging and social script like this.
If you’re also tired of some crap films recently and want a Good film which offers you Comedy, Romance and above all a Social awareness campaign then GO FOR IT, DO NOT MISS! Comparatively (Only Akki Films), Toilet Ek Prem Katha is as Good as Rustom but not up to the level of Baby and Jolly LLB 2.
