Movie Review: Kunal Kapoor-Radhika Apte's 'Kaun Kitney Paani Mein' falls short of being an eye-opener!
Star Cast: Kunal Kapoor, Radhika Apte, Saurabh Shukla, Gulshan Grover

Director: Nila Madhab Panda

Producer: One Drop Foundation, Eleeanora images Pvt Ltd

Claps For: Saurabh Shukla and his hilarious liners

Slaps For:weak plot, abrupt climax, direction, editing

What's new: Nothing

Popcorn Refill: Anytime during the movie

Story: The film opens with a scene where Raja Braj Kishore Singh Deo (Saurabh Shukla), the king of a village narrates in a flashback how his land fell prey to drought when his elders chose to turn a blind eye towards the importance of rain water conservation. They had even divided the village into two by building a wall to keep the lower-caste people away from them.

Cut to we are introduced to Raja's village now facing its consequences. So he decides to sell off the barren land but gets no buyers because of water scarcity. On the other hand, the separated part of the village has plenty of water and rich crops.

Thus Raja devises a plan and asks his son Raj (Kunal Kapoor) to woo Paro (Radhika Apte), the daughter of Kharu Pahalwan (Gulshan Grover), an aspiring politician who also happens to be the head of the cordoned off part of the village.

However things take a dramatic turn when Raj actually ends up falling in love with Paro. What will happen next? Will these two ever unite or will their love story get drowned because of casteism and age-old enmity? How will they quench the thirst of the barren land?

Performances: Saurabh Shukla has some of the best lines and leaves you in splits. Kunal Kapoor fails to impress and at times seems lost. Radhika Apte who lately has some impressive performances to her credit, is good in her part. However one wished that her character was a bit more fleshed. Gulshan Grover is okayish in his role.

Direction: Nila Madhab Panda wanted to raise an important issue through his social satire. However he falls quite flat and instead delivers a half-baked film with a ridiculous climax that will make you say 'oh no'. Inspite of having a brilliant star cast comprising of Saurabh Shukla, Radhika Apte and others, the director fails to extract noteworthy performances from them. Blame it on the lacklustre script! 'Kaun Kitney Paani Mein' does have some memorable satirical moments. But then they are completely overshadowed by the weak narrative of the story. There is nothing new about the music and cinematography too.

Combo-on-offer: Social satire+ Drama

Verdict: We give the film Slaps for its weak execution, half-baked plot and dull climax. You can surely skip this one.
