Toilet: Ek Prem Katha is not a complete disaster

Toilet: Ek Prem Katha cleared with three cuts, not eight, says Akshay Kumar
Summary: A source from the CBFC says, "We've asked the makers of Toilet: Ek Prem Katha to remove the caste reference". Look at his filmography of late; all his films are not only different in genres, but also in style and treatment.
Trade analyst Girish Johar says that as per his prediction Toilet: Ek Prem Katha will earn almost Rs 13 to Rs 15 crore on the first day of release i.e on Friday itself.
A 12th pass not-so-young bachelor Keshav (Akshay Kumar) meets a well educated pretty girl Jaya (Bhumi Pednekar) in a local train, and it turns out to be love at first sight for him.
The film starts with a goofy note where Akshay Kumar is seen being hitched to a buffalo comically named "Mallika", in order to shoo away the "Mangal Dosh" from his Kundli.
In urban India, having an access to a toilet doesn't seem like a pressing issue and therefore people might find it hard to connect to the film's theme but in most parts of our country, sanitation is a major concern. The stars had posted amusing videos and had sent Akshay and Bhumi best wishes on Twitter.
Preventing this film from being a one-person show for Kumar is his feisty heroine and wife, Bhumi Pednekar.
Overall, it is a good entertainer which leaves you with a food for thought after you exit the movie hall. At times, a well-intentioned small idea can laid the foundation of a big and lovely film. The movie is a love story of Keshav [Akshay Kumar] and Jaya [Bhumi Pednekar], a couple who are separated from each other due to the absence of sanitization facility at Keshav's home. Yet again Bhumi Pednekar proves that she is a brilliant actor. His chemistry with Akshay Kumar is the base of fun in the film. She is a natural before the camera and holds her own against Akshay Kumar and other veteran actors.
The film's core message, therefore, instead of being a positive one to bring change, is that Indian women must fight for a toilet or die (for how many Indian women will actually survive demanding a divorce?). The film is directed by Shree Narayan Singh and Produced by Aruna Bhatia, Shital Bhatia, Prernaa Arora, Arjun N. Kapoor and Hitesh Thakkar. A film such as this doesn't really need songs and dreamy sequences. Toilet is an important film exclusively because it addresses such a basic issue that has been veiled under the lace of social embarrassment. However, the film is marred by incompetent editing, especially in the second half.
