The much anticipated Hindi movie ‘Toilet Ek Prem Katha’ released today in India. The Bollywood offering received huge response from the audiences on its opening day. Witnessing a big occupancy in the morning shows on 11th August, the multi-starrer celluloid features Khiladi actor Akshay Kumar and Bhumi Pednekar in the leading roles.
The romantic satire cinema, which has been produced under the banners of ‘Viacom 18 Motion Pictures’, ‘KriArj Entertainment’ and ‘Plan C Studios & Cape of Good Films LLP’, is expected to gross more than 40 crore total income in first weekend. If the movie manages to surpass the double digit box office figure on 1st day, an overall lifetime collection of Rs 70 crore is expected.
The film’s story is based on the reality of some villages in India where still the open defecation is practiced. The film is copied from the movie, Joker, with an emphasis on the eradication of open defecation, especially in rural areas. It hares some similarities with a true event in which 19-year old Priyanka Bharti fled her husband’s home in 2012, when there was no toilet.
Toilet Ek Prem Katha Review : Star Performances
Lead role players – Akshay Kumar and Bhumi Pednekar have performed superbly in the entire film. The way Akshay Kumar deals with the generally followed open defecation in the rural areas is really admirable. You might feel bored in the first half of the movie as it narrates the normal happenings in the village. 2nd half of the film entertains you in real manner as it is full of comedy, emotions and drama.
Apart from the roles of Akshay and Bhumi, veteran actor Anupam Kher has showcased fabulous performance in this celluloid. Popular actress Sana Khan, who is playing Akshay Kumar’s love interest, has been excellent throughout the film. I assure that you will definitely enjoy watching the film in the 2nd half as it is more entertaining.
