Akshay Kumar stars in Toilet: Ek Premier Katha (A Love Story) and the film can be seen in Odeon Belfast from August 11. A fairly emancipated small town woman leaves her husband and his small-minded, tied-to-tradition home because she is unprepared to answer nature's call in dark fields. But, with 'Toilet- Ek Prem Katha', the trend has surely come back. Look at his filmography of late; all his films are not only different in genres, but also in style and treatment. VIP 2 is also special because Kajol returned to Tamil cinema after two decades and it also her first film after 2015's Dilwale, which tanked at the box office.

Pooja Hegde - I am very excited to watch the film. Despite all the positives, the length of the film is an issue. He yet again proves that when it comes to showing versatility through performances, there is no one in the industry who can hold a candle to him. Directed by Meghna Gulzar, the film is slated to release on May 11, 2018. They get married but trouble begins when she finds out he doesn't have a toilet in his house.

We are then repeatedly told that the lack of toilets in the country is our fault and not the fault of the government.
Who knows anything of the India that existed before that year. Ample research has gone down in ensuring the film touches upon the right facts and figures and most of this information is downright shocking.

Let's focus on concrete outcome: PM to Swaraj
It will also discuss the dates for the fourth summit of the Bimstec to be held in Nepal later this year. Sushma Swaraj, according to Bhattarai, told Deuba that India is all set to welcome Deuba in New Delhi .

I kept waiting for someone to also praise Aadhaar and the implementation of GST, to complete the sucking-up agenda.

In the second half, the film loses its promise and its footing. The makers go overboard in ensuring the commercial viability of the film by putting in too many songs and dramatic face offs post interval.

What should have been paean to the potty has ended up being a dishonest paean to Modi. This is the problem with Toilet: Ek Prem Katha, which had the potential to become a deep, dark satirical take on one of the biggest problems that still shamefully plagues India: defecation in the open.
