At 2 hours 35 minutes, and with the premise better suited for a short film, Toilet: Ek Prem Katha is a literal snoozefest.

Writers Garima Wahal and Siddharth Singh have used clever puns ("Soch se parda hata kar sauch pe dhyan dena hai"), jocularity ("Yeh aurat hai dhoti nahin jo use sambhalna pade) and facts, to convey the essence of the film in a light-hearted manner".

Turns out, there is not a single toilet in the village, and the women go into the fields while it is still dark to relieve themselves.

It will take a Major League Baseball vote to approve of the Jeter-Sherman pairing and official sale of the team. Major League Baseball owners meet next week in Chicago, where the Marlins situation may be discussed.

Then comes the mother of all disturbing failed attempts at humour: Jaya is speaking to her grandfather over the phone who says "raat ko soyi nahi hogi theek se (yes, her grandfather too)".

The film revolves around a woman named Jaya (role played by Bhumi Pednekar) who leaves her husband (role played by Akshay Kumar) on the very first day of their marriage after she gets to know that there is no toilet in his home. So far a brilliant satire exploiting the rigid and weird mindset of a village in rural India is serving the goal brilliantly to entertain, educate and probe. Keshav (Akshay Kumar) and Jaya's (Bhumi Pednekar) love story's villain, as the film tells us, is sakshaat shauch. The movie has a moral as well as a love story. It seems the idiom "to get into the skin of the character" was coined just for Akshay Kumar. P. state topper who is at least 15 years younger than Keshav. Jaya confronts and problem begins. As soon as he saw Jaya he falls in love with her. Keshav, a school dropout but with great general knowledge, is the elder son of the ultra-orthodox pandit Bauji (Sudhir Pandey). So far so good.

Toilet has a weak and shaky second half. It misses the satire and fails to make any strong cinematic statement. Her condition of returning home is that there has to be a toilet in the house for her to use. Other actors in the supporting cast have also delivered brilliant performances. He has gone better and better as an actor and here he is in complete command. And of course, the brilliant chemistry between Akshay and Bhumi. Anupam Kher has its moments. Anshuman Mahaley deftly captures the essence of small-town life with his camera. The film will hit screens on August 11. "Hans mat pagli" is mellifluous and romantic, while "Bakheda" and "Gori tu lat maar" touch your heart. 'Gori Tu Latth Maar' is well-shot. Let's review the film Toilet: Ek Prem Katha and give it a once over whether the film lives up to our expectations or not. Akshay Kumar deserves an extra pat on his back for highlighting it through a mainstream cinematic medium.
