In the current open season for officially sanctioned 'socially relevant films', a film about toilets, or rather, the lack of them, assumes significance. Toilet Ek Prem Katha battled rural prejudice against constructing toilets within a house. Mere Pyare Prime Minister toplines a slum child's determination to push the authorities into building a toilet close to his 'kholi', for the love of his mother. Can't fight with a premise which has its heart in the right place, but good intentions do not always a good film make.

Open defecation is a huge problem facing India, and has already been addressed in a film last year. So when Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra decides to come up with another film on the same subject, you might hope he may have something more to say. Does he? Almost. While the previous film was a love story where a husband works at building toilets for his wife, here, we have a young boy named Kanhu (Om Kanojiya) who wants to do the same for his mother.

The only-in-India subcategory of cinema dedicated to easy access to toilets gets a new entry in the form of Mere Pyare Prime Minister. Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra's movie follows in the heels of Toilet: Ek Prem Katha (2017) and Halkaa (2018), and resembles the latter production most closely in its exploration of a child from a slum who dreams of building a toilet for his mother.

In Hindi, sexually transmitted diseases are coyly called 'gupt rog.' They are treated as an illicit secret, and this unfortunate stigma allows director Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra to stage a most charming scene of courtship in Mere Pyare Prime Minister. In his new film, a young man takes a young woman, a victim of rape, to a clinic to get tested for STDs and, noticing her shame, announces he needs the tests himself.
