Water is not one of the conventional cinemas seen on the bollywood block. The plot of the movie is totally different from what we see regularly. The movie is directed by ace director Deepal Shah, who has also directed of the track movies like Fire and Earth before but Water clearly stands out of the three master pieces. The movie has a core plot based on the lives of widows in the pre independence era of Indian culture. The movie is based in the1930’s, a Ashram for widows is run by Madhumati ( Manorma ). The supremo of the ashram pimps out young widows to the houses of rich people to get enough money to rub the ashram. A young 8 year old widow Chuhiya, was thrown into the ashram by her father. There’s a beautiful widow Kalyani ( Lisa Ray ) residing in the ashram.

Narayan ( John Abraham ) a Gandhiwadi met Kalyani and fell in love with her at the very first sight. Soon Kalyani also started liking her. Defying the cultural ethos she decided to fight against the regime of Madhumita and her ashram to marry with Narayan. Narayan took Kalyani with her to see his parents but before they meet his parents she stopped him midway and told him to return back. When he asked for the reason she indicated towards his father who has been sexually involved her. The story takes a dramatic turn when Kalyani committed suicide. Towards the culmination young Chuhiya was also exploited by the authorities of the ashram and she was sent to a rich man’s house. The story of the movie is completely different even the ending of the movie is so depressing unlike a bollywood film. Overall the story is wonderfully crafted and presented by the director.
