The film wryly expresses the changes in hierarchy, caste and the power equation when water, the most important resource, vanishes and how the oppressed become the oppressors. The story is told through two villages which were split based on caste and money but never through water. In the current situation, through reversals of fortune, the old world order has been broken and water becomes the biggest game changer. It has a domino effect on everything from social order to economics, even love and marriage. The film takes a satirical look at respect for resources, caste divides, and rural life against the backdrop of a traditional love story but all set in a realm where water is the new currency.

Worth of your Time
24 February 2017 | by ashishsingh-81288See all my reviews

Had heard a lot about this movie but didn't get a chance to see it until today. It is not very surprising in our Bollywood that such movies slide away without anyone knowing about them. However, if we have enough strength to watch those masala packed entertainers than this should come fairly easy to us. This movies clearly shows a genuine effort of every cast and crew to weave a satirical story around plethora of issues in our country. I must admit I have a soft corner for Kunal Kapoor as I feel he is good talent wasted, and same so goes for Saurabh Shukla & Mr. Grover. Not only the lead characters have played their part honestly but the supporting cast is equally good.

Overall, the story could have been better like the songs but still is FAR better than most of our mainstream movies. It's definitely a one time watch, and through out the movie you won't feel bored at-least I didn't.
