Review By Anita Iyer From khaleejtimes.com
The first half of the film is crisp and tightly packed but the same can’t be said about the other half. After interval, the film tends to get a bit preachy but that is expected if you have a much-debatable topic like open defecation to be addressed. Overall, it is a good entertainer which leaves you with a food for thought after you exit the movie hall. Yes, you might hear the word ‘ toilet’ multiple times throughout the film but you will soon get comfortable with it. Go for the film, if you are looking for a well-scripted film backed by power-packed performances by the actors.
Review By Manjusha From Gulf News
The first half is smooth, but it’s the second half that gets constipated. The premise which is intriguing and novel becomes repetitive and laboured. Some of the scenes in the second half seems contrived to make the current government shine and sparkle. While the intention of this film is noble and should be lauded, the love story gets lost in the din of indoctrinating the glorious Indian government’s honourable campaign. Watch this if you are in the mood to witness earnest acting performances, but if you are looking for a propaganda-free film, then this is not it.
Review By Shubham Dwivedi From Newsfolo
Despite of being based on a social issue of rural India, film is extremely entertaining and hits hard on the point when it should. Akshay Kumar as always manages to combine comedy and drama in a single performance. Editing has been very helpful and creating the story and also enhancing the depth of story with the help of right music for the film. On the whole Toilet Ek Prem Katha is a must watch to realize that open defecation is a very big issue being faced by half the country.
Review By Shiva Teja From Factskeeper
The movie has so many things which a normal person can learn. The traditions and other things should not be the final verdicts of a person’s life can be seen in the film. The movie portrays all the characters in a good role. The characterization is good while the story impresses everyone. There are people who may not like the film, as it shows the truth. The movie is based on true story.
