Toilet - Ek Prem Katha will see its theatrical to come out soon and it is one of the best of the year so far. There have been around 100 films released so far and only two of them looked like Hindi films from the trailers and they were Badrinath Ki Dulhania and Bahubali.


The latter may have been dubbed but from Telugu but it did not give the vibe of a typical Telugu film. Badrinath Ki Dulhania (SUPER HIT) and Bahubali (ALL TIME BLOCKBUSTER) have also emerged the two biggest hits of the year till date. 



Since then we have had Tubelight which had a good theatrical and now its Toilet - Ek Prem Katha. Tubelight may have accusations that it is a lift from a Hollywood film but from the trailer it looks a genuine Hindi film with Indian emotions in a war situation which should work in a big way. Its sad that with around 100 films, only four can be called genuine Hindi films of which one is Toilet - Ek Prem Katha


Toilet - Ek Prem Katha is a surprise as the theatrical gives a good vibe with the humour interlaced very well with the plot. The entertainment will come from the comedy but as the plot is strong it does not look like an outright comedy to the audience and this is important as when a film looks outright comedy it has limitations as far as box office is concerned. The film has a very strong and authentic small town feel which is a huge plus today when done correctly. Many films do this but only when the feel is real does it work, like in this film. The film has a socially relevant message that every house in a village should have a proper toilet but these things are mainly for the media to talk about. Eventually a film will only find an audience if it is entertaining with a good story told in a way that the audience understands or should we say in the traditional Hindi film format. This is the case with Toliet - Ek Prem Katha.


The director of the film Shree Narayan Singh has edited many films but also directed a film earlier named Yeh Jo Mohabbat Hai (2012). This film was actually produced by a legendary banner of the 60's and 70's Shakti Films but the film went unnoticed.


The film has the potential to be the biggest Akshay Kumar grosser ever though its a bit early to talk about these things as GST is expected to come in play in July and no one has an idea yet as to how this is going to work out. The film is also going for tax exemptions but even that is an unknown as it is not known whether it will be just GST or GST plus the state entertainment tax which is there now in August. The best way to put it is that it should be the highest Akshay Kumar collection in GROSS and how NETT will work out only time will tell.
