Toilet: Ek Prem Katha - A Movie Review
Toilet: Ek Prem Katha ( transl. Toilet: A Love Story) is a 2017 Indian Hindi-language comedy-drama film directed by Shree Narayan Singh and co-produced by Akshay Kumar and Neeraj Pandey. The film stars Akshay Kumar and Bhumi Pednekar, with campaigns to improve sanitation conditions in India, with an emphasis on the eradication of open defecation, especially in rural areas. The film highlights India's toilet problem, which is caused by its cultural and religious sentiments. In Indian rural areas, people still do not have this basic necessity, which frustrates women and which further leads to sexual harassment. It was reported that it is based on the true story of Anita Narre from Madhya Pradesh, who refused to go back to her husband Shivram's home because it had no toilet.

In an Indian village Nandgaon, Uttar Pradesh, a group of women go to a field, away from their village near Nandgaon in the early hours of the day to defecate in the open, behind the cover of bushes. Keshav has to marry a black buffalo because his father Pandit Vimalnath Sharma is a very religious and superstitious priest, and he believes that his son's marriage to a black buffalo will help improve Keshav's fortune. Keshav meets Jaya, an educated college going girl, falls in love with her and eventually convinces her to marry him. However, Keshav's father is of the view that Keshav's horoscope is such that he can and should only marry a girl who has two thumbs on her left hand. Since Jaya does not fulfill this requirement, Keshav has an artificial thumb made and gives it to Jaya who wears it as a ring on her thumb. Keshav's unsuspecting father agrees to their marriage.
On her first morning in Keshav's house, Jaya reluctantly goes to a field to defecate, but comes back agitated without defecating and complains about it to Keshav. Despite Keshav's repeated attempts to convince Jaya to give up her stubbornness about needing a toilet, Jaya remains steadfast in her demand. He makes a couple of temporary adjustments to avoid the situation from getting out of hand but they are not enough to convince Jaya. He tries to pacify Jaya by promising that he will get a toilet built for her within one month but she remains unconvinced as she feels that he is only saying so to stall her.
Jaya leaves Keshav and goes back to her parents' house. After a futile attempt to convince his sarpanch and villagers to build toilets in the village, Keshav contacts the concerned governmental department that encourages him and guides him through the process of getting funds sanctioned for building toilets under Swachh Bharat Abhiyan (Clean India Mission). However, his efforts are repeatedly thwarted by his father and brother who are staunch supporters of open defecation as they believe that it is part of their tradition and culture.
Keshav sets out on a mission to win back his love by standing up against his father and society for what he believes is right. He files for a divorce in court citing his wife's demand for a toilet as grounds for divorce. This attracts media attention and public support for Jaya who refuses to accept the divorce and instead demands a toilet in her marital home as her right. Keshav also challenges his father by building a toilet in his front yard despite his objections.
The film ends with Keshav and Jaya reconciling and leading a happy life together with their new baby girl who is named Swachhata (Cleanliness). The film also shows how their village becomes open defecation free with toilets being built for every household. The film ends with a message that 54% of Indians still defecate in the open and urges the viewers to join the Clean India Mission.
Toilet: Ek Prem Katha is a film that tackles a serious and relevant issue with humor and sensitivity. The film does not shy away from showing the harsh realities of rural India where women have to face humiliation and harassment every day due to the lack of toilets. The film also exposes the hypocrisy and ignorance of the people who oppose the idea of toilets in the name of tradition and religion. The film also highlights the role of the government and media in creating awareness and facilitating change.
The film is driven by the powerful performances of Akshay Kumar and Bhumi Pednekar who portray their characters with conviction and charm. They share a great chemistry and make us root for their love story. The supporting cast, especially Anupam Kher, Divyendu Sharma and Sudhir Pandey, also deliver commendable performances. The film has a good balance of comedy and drama, with some emotional and inspirational moments. The film also has some catchy songs that add to the entertainment value.
The film is not without its flaws, however. The film tends to get preachy and melodramatic at times, especially in the second half. The film also stretches its runtime unnecessarily and could have been edited more tightly. The film also takes some creative liberties with the facts and simplifies the complex issue of sanitation in India.
Overall, Toilet: Ek Prem Katha is a film that deserves to be watched for its noble message and engaging storytelling. It is a film that makes us think and act for a better India.
