Box Office India compared Toilet: Ek Prem Katha's opening day collection with Akshay's Rustom, for which he won a National Award and his 2015 release Brothers. The report states that the Day 1 collection of Toilet: Ek Prem Katha is lower than his other two films.
Toilet: Ek Prem Katha traces Keshav (Akshay Kumar) and Jaya's (Bhumi Pednekar) love story, which has a social message. Jaya, after marriage, leaves Keshav's home due to lack of toilet at his residence. Keshav tries hard to change the mind-set of his father, who believes that a toilet and the scared Tulsi plant cannot be in the same compound.
In his review for NDTV, film critic Saibal Chatterjee, gave the film 2 stars out of 5. "Toilet: Ek Prem Katha is inspired by a true story, but little that it offers by way of insight rings true. Some of the dialogues are cringe-worthy, the drama gratingly shrill and the solutions utterly facile," he wrote in the review.
Toilet: Ek Prem Katha is directed by Shree Narayan Singh and also stars Anupam Kher, Divyendu Sharma and Sudhir Pandey in pivotal roles.
