Toilet: Ek Prem Katha features good performances, a very honest attempt at dealing a social issue, fun filled moments along with some drama.

Toilet: Ek Prem Katha is a love story with a subject of the issue of defecation in open. This subject is dealt with in a different way. The film is about Keshav (Akshay Kumar), a 12th fail 36-year-old bachelor who has no choice but to abide by the traditional rituals applied by his father. His father, Pandit Ji (Sudhir Pandey) is very particular he turns his bike rather than going through the road crossed by a cat. We get to see a quirky and smart girl with attitude – Jaya (Bhumi Pednekar). The duo are opposites but are attracted to each other. They get to known each other and plan to get married but soon after Jaya is enraged when she gets to know there’s no sanitization facility at Keshavs house. Keshav makes all attempts to challenge the years-old tradition and Pandit Ji’s persistence of not allowing of toilet facility at his home is what the film is all about. There’s a lot more to the story than dealing with the issue, the film is interesting and a fun watch.
