The film is releasing on August 11, and is likely to benefit from the Independence day holiday (August 15).

Akshay Kumar continues to justify his tag of being Bollywood's poster boy of patriotism, with every new film he does. The film promotes Prime Minister Narendra Modi's Clean India campaign.

With talented star cast, fresh pair of Akshay-Bhumi and quirky humour packed with a powerful message, Toilet: Ek Prem Katha has all elements that are required to change these ongoing bad days of box office. Hitting 600 screens in overseas, the multi-starrer offering performed outstandingly in the foreign countries. To this, Karan replies by saying that he asked her to go and watch Toilet Ek Prem Katha.

Facing a decent controversy over some verbal cuts, the celluloid successfully divulged a huge number of audiences in the theatres. The movie was released in 2900 to 3000 screens in India and 590 screens in overseas. It is a great film falls for this Independence Day. Jaya (Bhumi Pednekar) is against the idea of defecating in the open so she left the house after that Keshav realises his love for her and he decides to put toilets in the whole village. However, last night there was a special screening kept for the members of the fraternity.

The film deals with the issue of open defecation in India with 58% of Indian facing the problem.

This is Bhumi Pendekar's second film and she pulls off her character easily. Bhumi Pedenakar aces here as homely as well as aggressive where as Akshay becomes successful in bringing all sides of the issue. However, one thing that can hamper Toilet Ek Prem Katha's impact is its repetitiveness. The film is directed by Shree Narayan Bhatia.
