TIMES OF INDIA
A VISIT TO THIS TOILET IS A MUST
STORY: Go-getter Keshav (Akshay) serenades liberal-thiner Jaya (Bhumi), a woman from his neighbouring village in Uttar Pradesh.  They marry but it doesn't strike Keshav to tell her that his house does not have a toilet.  This then becomes the grounds for Jaya to file for a divorce.

REVIEW: For most of us who take the toilets in our homes for granted, the burning issue of 58% Indians practising open defacation could be a flush-worthy concept.  But, director Shree Narayan Singh holds up a mirror to society, showing us how our superstitous villagers, lazy administration and corrupt politicians have actually converted India into the world's largest shit-pond.  Women especially, are treated more insensitively than cattle!




NDTV : When what should at best have been a ten-minute public service film bloats into a two-and-a-half-hour, patience-testing, yawn-inducing Bollywood puff-job for a government scheme, it is bound to stink to high heaven.  Toilet: Ek Prem Katha does.

Editor-director Shree Narayan Singh presents a corny; cringe-worthy mix of entertainment and edification in the service of the much tom-tommed Swacch Bharat campaign.  In the end, it is no more than a filmed pamphlet - patchy, pulpy, preachy and painfully protracted.  It is a classic case of flippant treatment and ham-fisted execution mutilating a serious subject beyond recognition.

The political partisanship on show here is unprecedented for a Mumbai mainstreak flick.  When the text of the  film refers to a big toilet scam, it quickly points out that all of it happened four years ago.  It also grabs the opportunity to slip in a laudatory reference to demonization.  In doing so, the films's makers complete expose their leanings.
