Toilet: EK Prem Katha, Comedy and Tragedy Blended Together


Trailer of Akhshay’s more awaited movie ‘ Toilet Ek Prem Katha’, released on Sunday evening. ‘Toilet: Ek Prem Katha’ starring Akshay Kumar, Anupam Kher and Bhumi Pednekar is coming with a very strong message for the society. Directed by Shree Narayan Singh, ‘ Toilet: Ek Prem Katha’ will paint the picture of PM Modi’s Swacch Bharat Abhiyan. This movie is a satarical comdey film.

People are loving everything about the trailer of the movie. Trailer of the movie is enough to give the glimpses of comedy, fun and tragedy. The trailer of the movie openly talks about the condition of women in a country. The country, where women are given a place of the Goddess, fails to maintain the privacy of the women as they have to go out and defecate in open. The film is much more than just a fictitious story, it is the struggle of everyday life of women which remains unnoticed by us.

Toilet: Ek Prem Katha is a story about a couple Keshav (Akshay Kumar) and Jaya(Bhumi) who struggles to make toilet in their village. In this film, Keshav in the starting of the movie doesn’t realize the importance of having a toilet in the village but after his marriage to Jaya, Jaya leaves him for not having a toilet in the house and the village, the actor then realize the importance of having a toilet in the house.  Soon his struggle to get back his wife begins but there is another hindrance — a society that may consider women their ‘izzat’ but refuses to give respect to them. Ironically, Tulsi, the goddess, is the reason cited for not having a toilet at home and forcing women of the house to defecate in open.

In the trailer, we hear women saying to Bhumi, “Chalo sava chaar hogaye hai, sab intezaar kar rahe hai lota party mein tumhara welcome ka.” When she can’t bring herself to go in the open, she is made fun of. The women say, “Sasuraal mein khaane ko na de rahe? Saari laaj sharam chodhkar lag jao kaam pe.”  Being a frustrated husband, Akshay asks his fellow village men if banishing a toilet more important than a woman’s privacy.

Dialogues, written by Siddharth-Garima, are perfect reflection of the mentality that needs to be challenged. As Anupam Kher says in the trailer – “if you change nothing, nothing will change.”

Finally, the trailer comes to an end on a disappointing note where the actor can be heard saying, “Aashiqo ne Aashiqui ke liye Taj Mahal bana diya, hum ek sandas na bana sake,” which left the audience with the question, whether the couple get success in their struggle of making a toilet in their village.

The trailer has so far received over 5 million views and counting. It seems like trailer of the film is receving immense love from the audience and critics. Even the bollywood celebrities are praising the trailer alot. Actor Anil Kapoor posted about  the film’s subject. “Voicing an important issue in a heartwarming & eye opening way! Kudos,” wrote Anil Kapoor, Akshay’s co-star of films like Tashan, Welcome and Bewafaa. ohn Abraham, who has worked with Akshay in Garam Masala and Desi Boyz, was the first celeb to tweet about the film. “Here’s wishing all the best to my co-producers of #Parmanu @kriarj & my friend @akshaykumar on their new venture!!”

A few days ago, the National-Award winning actor met PM Modi and shared the theme and title of his movie, which reportedly made the PM smile.

The movie is said to be released on 11 august.
