Kaun Kitney Paani Mein

IndiaGlitz [Thursday, July 23, 2015Hindi] Comments

What is it all about?

A satire on water set in the rain shadow areas of Orissa where water becomes currency in our daily life. A black comedy based between two villages fighting over a water reservoir since few decades.

The Story

It's a story of the two warring villages, Upri (The Exalted) and Bairi (The Outsiders) . Initially there existed only one village, known for its powerful kingdom, and great economic and social status. Bairi was created as a place of banishment for those who went against the king.

Thirty years back, a love between the 2-caste lead to the banishment of `the workers' from Upri to the newly created village of Bairi. However, having amassed skills in water management and farming, the people of Bairi started afresh , saved water and prospered over time.

This all changes when water becomes scarce in Upri and in abundance in Bairi thus reverses the balance of power between the two villages.

Water becomes the new currency in Upri as it has none of it while Bairi has it all. This scarcity forces the king to use his only trump card and that is his son Raj ( The Prince )

He cons with his son to go and impregnate the daughter of the Bairi village Chieftain ( Sarpanch) so that he can demand for water when they come to beg for marriage.

What the king has`nt factored is the twist it the plan. When Raj reaches Bairi things are not the way they seem and he plays his own cards.

The Film takes a satirical look against the backdrop of a traditional love story but all set in a realm where water is as good as money. The film resides in the genre of satire comedy, a rare-to-come-by treatment in Indian Cinema, with and even rarer plotline aimed at a positive social outcome.

Produced with both scale and grandeur, with multi-location shoots in the heart of Orissa, with grand music, action and dollops of romance-this film will tickle the heart and tackle the mind with a firm grip of the water scarcity issue.
