Indian cinema varies between different languages and regions. But Bollywood is the root of every other type of Indian cinema. B-town (Bollywood) never disappoints its audience. In action, romantic, or real-life issues, Bollywood actors and directors cherish their audiences with their mind-blowing performances.
According to Deloitte, India produces more movies than any other country — in between 1,500 to 2,000 films every year in over 20 languages.
There are many Indian movies released four or five years back still doing well at the box office. One of them is Toilet: a love story. The film starred the versatile Indian actor Akshay Kumar and actress Bhumi Padnekar, and it’s based on one of India’s real-life issues.
The film is an excellent combination of politics, culture and religion. According to the National Statistical Office survey, many rural households in India are still deprived of a toilet.
The film is based on a brave woman, Anita Narre from Madhya Pradesh, who fought for her rights. In many states of India, women are still struggling for their rights.
Jaya, one of the key characters, left her in-law’s house the very next day after she found out that it did not have a toilet. Jaya’s father-in-law and other village members were against building a bathroom inside their house. They made Jaya go outside in the fields just like other females of the village. It was very inconvenient for her because many males of the town were harassing them while watching. Jaya took a stand for every female. Jaya and her husband played various tricks to have a toilet inside their house, but they failed.
The film is an excellent example for every female that if she wants to do something, she can change the entire world.
The government of India has started many operations to provide basic services to Indians but due to a lack of education, corruption and other factors, many people remain unaware of their rights.
During the shooting of the film, Bhumi Padnekar met Anita Narre and shared a tweet: “The problem of open defecation is a lot more than bad hygiene. It’s a threat to a woman’s security, dignity, and health.#AnitaNarre showed courage, took a bold step and truly started a movement #OpenDefecationFreeIndia #ToiletEkPremKatha #RealJaya .”
Even if the film were released four years back, it is still a blockbuster movie one would always like to watch. The film scored 7.2/10 on IMDb. The movie has various supporting and well-known actors, including Anupam Kher, Divyenndu Sharma, Sudhir Pandey, Rajesh Sharma, and many others.
