Kaun Kitne Paani Mein - Movie Reviews

There is no drought (pardon the pun) of good ideas in this little, big film about an Odisha village that has no access to water.
Sify
Soil re-mineralisation? That is unprecedented for a Hindi film. Kaun Kitney Paani Mein goes where Hindi cinema rarely ever does. For that alone it deserves to be seen.
A film worthy of the ‘damp squib’ cliché
Filmfare
It’s not easy to sculpt a satire out of the raw material of misery.In a wretchedly poor part of Odisha there once lived a low-caste lover-boy who swoons over the zamindar’s daughter and pays with his life for his misplaced ardour.
Kaun Kitne Paani Mein review: Saurabh Shukla is spot on, too bad the film is not
Indian Express
Well, the basic plot line is interesting and has some decent performances attached to it. The movie will be a great watch over the small screen due to its slow narrative part and dragging screenplay
Moviez Adda
Not a sure shot recommendation, but Kaun Kitney Paani Mein makes an effort to be an eye-opener. The film has its moments of hits and misses so if you want to step out for a cine-watch that is not particularly commercial, you could watch this one!
Koi Moi
Shukla deserves a special mention for his crackling and memorable performance as a decadent but desperate ‘Kshatriya’ who has fallen on bad times
JAGRAN
Watch it for Saurabh Shukla.

The Hindu
Satire is a tricky genre to play with. If pulled off nicely, it leaves a huge impact on the audience
BollywoodLife
Kaun Kitney Paani Mein movie is a satire on water set in the rain shadow areas of Orissa where water becomes currency in our daily life
Filmi Beat
Kaun Kitney Paani Mein could have been great as a short film, but is a bit too stretched as a feature.
The Hindu
Subtle Content & Star Cast Yet It Remains an Untold Story Water is indispensable element in human being’s life
Just Bollywood
Watch Kaun Kitne Paani Mein for some entertainment while it might manage to make you think and wonder if you could face water shortage that bad some day.

Kaun Kitney Paani Mein deserves at least a one-time watch, as it has gone far beyond the norms of current day Hindi cinema in its attempt to present socially relevant messages

Kaun Kitne Paani Mein fails to realise its potential
