After Airlift and Rustom, Akshay Kumar has again chosen a subject of national interest to woo movie buffs. Shedding light on the importance of “hygiene” and “sanitation” in rural areas, the story of Toilet: Ek Prem Katha revolves around Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Swachh Abhiyaan campaign. Also starring Bhumi Pednekar, the film has received mixed reviews on day one.
While one user said, “I have a feeling this one doesn’t need any luck. #ToiletEkPremKatha is looking fantastic. Congrats @akshaykumarn my dear @mrsfunnybones :),” another one tweeted: “Of late #AkshayKumar’s films get good rating but are average in content or lack pure entertainment #Baby was a exception #ToiletEkPremKatha!” Aside from the mixed reactions, social media networking platforms are also buzzing with funny ‘toilet’ jokes. “@PahlajNihalani gets flushed the day #ToiletEkPremKatha releases. Now that’s some serious cinematic sanitization,” one Twitter user said.
