Based in post-independent India, in rural Odisha, Kaun Kitne Pani Mein is a socio-political satire set against the backdrop of water scarcity. It speaks of how tables turn with constant change in situational dynamics. The phrase which forms the title of this film, is apt for this fable.
The background score and songs merge elegantly into the tale. But it is the beautifully choreographed folk dance on the song "Rangapati, Rangapati" which stands out.
Overall, the film has the look, feel and charm of a bygone era.
