This Was Bhumi Pednekar's Response At Being Called A 'Village Girl'

EntertainmentOur film received only three cuts from CBFC says Akshay Kumar

Jaya refuses to answer nature's call in the open, and walks out of her marital home until Keshav builds a toilet for her.

Unfortunately, that intention and all its positives are completely overshadowed by its cringe-worthy keenness to bow and scrape before the present government and its head, an aspect of the film that lingers as much as its pluses because all the obsequiousness is packed into the latter half of the latter half.

For a film that pretends to be aimed at social change with the issue of women's safety at its core, it was quite confusing and disturbing to discover that the first half of Toilet: Ek Prem Katha is all about successfully stalking and demeaning women. Directed by Shree Narayan Singh, the movie is based on the issue of the lack of toilet facilities leading to open defecation that is still happening in many parts of the country. Celebrities from Bollywood flocked for the special screening of the film held in Mumbai on August 10, 2017. Climax seems hurried. It should have been more convincing. Keshav has a willing to all the way for Jaya, to rebel against society.

Akshay is the backbone of the movie his journey as an actor dividends and the actor has delivered yet another top notch performance. On one hand, Keshav and rest of villagers are seen using smartphones and LED televisions while at the same time they're seen clicking their tongues on the mere mention of toilets inside their houses.

The current political climate under Trump has been a boon for " Saturday Night Live ". Che and Jost have served as co-anchors since 2014.

Mubarakan actor Arjun Kapoor, who posted a hilarious video on Twitter about Toilet: Ek Prem Katha before the film released, tweeted again today and urged the fans and followers to watch Akshay's film. How Keshav fights with the whole village to make toilets and brings back his wife is what forms the crux of the story.

Narrated in a linear manner, laced with humour, stellar performances, hard-hitting dialogues and good music, this film conveys the message easily and is entertaining from word go. Sudhir Pandey is ideal as the strict father who is imprisoned in the age-old customs that serve no objective in today's times. Sudhir Pandey is brilliant, Divyendu Sharma as Akshay's friend is amusing. The way through which the film reaches its plot is really interesting and could be the reason behind going for the film in theaters.

Toilet Ek Prem Katha has five songs in totality, and I am glad to say that after a long, long time there is an album which boasts of some really soulful music.

Yes, you might be hearing the word "toilet" multiple time throughout the film but you will soon get comfortable with it. "Hans mat pagli" is mellifluous and romantic, while "Bakheda" and "Gori tu lat maar" touch your heart. Anshuman Mahaley's camera work is excellent.
