Analysis

Toilet: Ek Prem Katha Movie Review

Toilet: Ek Prem Katha starts on a slow note as it takes enough time to reveal about the behavior of the characters. The first half of Toilet: Ek Prem Katha has been packed with hilarious entertainment which come along with the plot. Some of the songs have been forcefully injected into the plot however some of them have been shot well. On the whole, the first half of Toilet: Ek Prem Katha looks decent with packed entertainment. 

The second half of Toilet: Ek Prem Katha too has been interesting and reveals a strong social message.  Some of the episodes have been dragged too much and the songs are huge barriers for the film. The film has many interesting episodes which strike hard about the problems faced by women across many villages of the country. On the whole the second half of Toilet: Ek Prem Katha has been ok which has been balanced with good and bad episodes throughout.

Performance

Akshay Kumar has been honest and apt as Keshav. He performed with ease and has been extremely energetic. He worked enough hard to transform himself as a villager. Bhumi Pednekar has been extremely stupendous and her performance is the major highlight of the film. She nailed it with her flawless performance and is a treat to be watched. All the other actors delivered out their best for the film. 

The story of Toilet: Ek Prem Katha has been derived from a strong problem faced in the country. However the screenplay and the dialogues should have been much better. The songs and the music has been pretty average and the cinematography looked decent and apt. The editing has been sharp and the production values have been grand. The director has done a decent job but he should have focused much on the screenplay.

Final Word

Akshay Kumar steps out with one more interesting and thought provoking social drama that hits the chord. However the second half should have been good.
