There was a time Akshay Kumar only appeared in inane and banal comedies, incessantly gesticulating before the lenses. Hallelujah! His film choices have drastically ameliorated, establishing a perfect blend of amusement and awareness.
If you thought only Aamir Khan was the flag-bearer of enlightening social causes ( After all the ballyhoo, his Satyamev Jayate practically brought a major metamorphosis in Indian households), watch Kumar’s new film’s trailer, Toilet-Ek Prem Katha.
Now dexterous in portraying slice-of-life roles bathed in ordinariness, Kumar seems to be in a remarkable form at the movies.
As the title connotes, the film is based on the urgency of the need of toilets in the rural areas of the country. It’s also a battle of altruism against a system deep rooted in corruption and avarice.
Staring Bhumi Pednekar, Anupam Kher, Divyendu Sharma and Sudhir Pandey in significant roles, this satirical comedy will arrive at the cinemas on the 11th of August, 2017.
