Bollywood comes out of cliches

Phullu, Toilet: Ek Prem Katha & Padman Poster references

Here by saying clichés it is meant saying various similar concept movies. We have been so used to Bollywood movies and their themes that most of the times, we know the theme well in advance and we at times also call them ‘old wine in new bottles'. The topics mostly range from romance, revenge, religious conflicts, underworld, etc. Very rarely do we come across subjects that are now touched upon. Sample these three movies that are currently in the limelight. All of them talk about things that we do not presume can be told as a film story. TOILET: EK PREM KATHA, PADMAN, PHULLU. While PADMAN and PHULLU touch upon the topic of menstruation, TOILET… talks about, sanitation/toilet! And a more interesting point would be the fact that Akshay Kumar features in two of these.
