Deaf movie review of Toilet: Ek Prem Katha
September 1, 2017
A hearing perspective:
Toilet: Ek Prem Katha is a romantic comedy, Hindi language film directed by Shree Narayan Singh.
The film stars Akshay Kumar as Keshav and Bhumi Pednekar as Jaya in important roles. It also features Anupam Kher, Sudhir Pandey and Divyendu Sharma in supporting roles.
The film is based on Prime Minister Narendra's Modi's Swachh Bharat Abhiyan, a campaign that aims to promote cleanliness and stop the practice of open defecation, especially in village areas.
The film shows how Keshav and Jaya fall in love and get married despite outdated religious beliefs.
It then highlights the problems faced by women in villages while defecating in open fields. It shows the real situation of the villages in our country and the importance of constructing toilets for women at their homes and locality to ensure their safety and dignity.
The way Jaya's open-minded thinking encourages Keshav to battle against his family, villagers and the government and work towards changing the mindset of village people for using toilets forms the main part of the story.
The first half of the film is hilarious but the second half is quite emotional and drags a bit.
The film is easily a one-time watch for its engaging script, nice picturization, good acting performances and a message to make the society a better place to live in.
