Toilet – Ek Prem Katha traces the love story between jugaad baaz Keshav (Akshay Kumar) and progressive Jaya (Bhumi Pednekar), set in two villages near Mathura. Though it’s love at first sight for Keshav, it takes him many a gesture of love to win progressive Jaya’s heart. Keshav, who has been brought up with a radically different belief system as opposed to Jaya, even manages to find a jugaad to convince his staunchly traditional father to say yes to their match!

All seems to be going well and love is in the air, until the day after their marriage, when Jaya discovers that there is no toilet not just in Keshav’s home, but in his entire village. Keshav, who initially doesn’t seem to understand her plight, is jolted when Jaya leaves his house, with a promise to return only on the construction of a toilet in the house and in the village, thereby respecting her own dignity.

Thus begins the journey of a man in love, whose only aim in life is to get what his wife demands and rightfully so! TEPK is a satirical take on a battle against the age old tradition of open defecation in the country. From the panchayat to the sanitation department, from the role of the government to the superstitions of the villagers, from scams to the ethos, from first love to a matured romance, TEPK is Keshav's journey from being a jugaadbaaz to standing up for a cause.
