Watch: Toilet Ek Prem Katha’s new song Bakheda, shows love knows no boundaries



New Delhi, July 5: Toilet: Ek Prem Katha is a movie that has a social message attached to it and is inspired by PM Narendra Modi’s Swachh Bharat Campaign.

After the release of Hans Mat Pagli, the makers of Toilet: Ek Prem Katha have now released the second song from the film.

Akshay Kumar took to his official Twitter handle to share the next song from his upcoming film Toilet: Ek Prem Katha co-starring Bhumi Pednekar. The song titled “Bakheda”, is the tale of Keshav (Akshay) and Jaya’s (Bhumi) love story.

Akshay, who shared the song, captioned it, “Jag mein na _____ se bada #Bakheda? Watch now to find out 🙂 #Bakheda song out now. –>” The missing word here is “Ishq” and looks like the actor finds love a sweet disturbance.

The song titled Bakheda depicts the romantic tale of Akshay Kumar aka Keshav and Bhumi Pednakar aka Jaya. It shows how their relationship has grown and ultimately into a blossomed love. The chemistry between Akshay and Bhumi in the song is simple and relatable. They are in love and do things that couple do today. From trying to meet each other away from public eye to mooning over each other sitting by the window or staring at the stars – the song is a beautiful number.

The story is of Keshav and Jaya who fall in love and get married. However, Keshav’s village does not have a single toilet, which creates a massive rift in their married life. So ultimately it becomes a story of Keshav fighting his village’s superstitions and government’s corruption to ensure proper sanitation for all. Overall, it is a promising love story with a strong social message.

The film addresses various issues like gender discrimination, sanitation issues, irrational traditional beliefs – all of it done with a dash of entertainment.

The song is sung by Sukhwinder Singh and Sunidhi Chauhan with a rustic charm reminding one of their previous collaborations like Beedi from Omkar and many more.

Toilet: Ek Prem Katha will hit the big screens on August 11.

‘Hichki’ Movie Review: An emotionally inspiring film




New Delhi, March 23: Film: “Hichki”; Director: Sidharth P. Malhotra; Cast: Rani Mukerji, Supriya Pilgaonkar, Sachin Pilgaonkar, Neeraj Kabi, Shivkumar Subramaniam, Asif Basra, Ivan Rodrigues, Harsh Mayar and Kunal Shinde

Rating: 3.5/5

Adapted from a 2008 released English film, “Front of the Class”, which is based on Brad Cohen’s book “Front of the Class: How Tourette Syndrome Made Me the Teacher I Never Had”, director Sidharth P. Malhotra’s “Hichki” is a feel good, emotionally packed and inspirational film.

It is the touching story of Naina Mathur, a young girl who would not let Tourette Syndrome keep her from doing what she loved most; teaching. Despite her speech defect, she sets out to become a teacher.

Hichki Rani Mukerji

Tourette syndrome is a neuropsychiatric disorder which sets off multiple motor tics which include compulsive throat-clearing, knee knocking, violent muscle twitches and piercing barks. These tics are beyond one’s control. While the exact cause that sets off these tics is not known, it is believed to involve a combination of genetic and environmental factors.

Rani Mukerji as the plucky Naina Mathur is flawless. She portrays her character with sincerity.

Hichki review

“I can’t see you as a teacher,” one blunt administrator tells her. To which, she replies, “Before meeting me, did you know about Tourette Syndrome? Well, now that you know, I have educated you.”

This simply tells you how persevering she is.

The film reveals how as a student she was expelled from twelve schools before finally being accepted whole heartedly at St. Notker’s High School. The same school later accepts her as a teacher, mid-term, not because of her brilliant academic credentials but because of a crisis situation. She is hired to teach a class of underprivileged, reluctant misfits. How she wins everyone’s hearts, forms the crux of the tale.

Looking back periodically to show Naina as a child, the film is most powerful in some of those flashback sequences.

Hichki Movie Review

How as a child, she convinces herself that Tourette Syndrome is her lifelong companion and that could teach her important lessons about human nature. That bit of disassociation which is crucial helps her cope with otherwise difficult situations. This comes through in her strained relationship with her father and also when she tells her school teacher, Mr. Khan, “Treat me like other students.”

The film is packed with dramatic moments that are as truthful as they are inspiring. Every scene resonates with sentiments. With apt metaphors and lingo, the writing is simple and straightforward. And while the film intends on communicating life-affirming values, there are moments in the first half that seem forced.

The second half, despite the painstakingly moralistic notes, touches the right chords. You get so immersed with the characters especially Naina. You feel sorry for her when despite her sincere efforts, her class gets suspended, for no fault of theirs.

What elevates the film is the brilliant performances by the supporting cast. You can relate with every character as each one of them is well-etched. The ones that stand out apart from the gang of students are Sachin and Supriya Pilgaonkar as Naina’s estranged parents, Ivan Rodrigues as the School Principal, Neeraj Kabi as Naina’s colleague at school who is keen to dismiss Naina’s students from the school and of course the character who plays Naina’s brother.

The loving relationship between the siblings is well-defined.

With ace production values, the film is well-made. The only sore point is the loud background score that kills the subtlety of the subject.

Overall, “Hichki” remains in your mental space long after you leave the theatre.
