The film 'Jal' is set in the Rann of Kutch, and is about an overconfident water diviner named Bakka, played by Purab H Kohli, who tries to solve the drought problems in his village, but faces unforeseen circumstances when he tries to help a female ornithologist save flamingos.
The film opens with a wide scale shot of the enthralling, seemingly limitless Rann of Kutch, which hooks the audience in. Jal is a project that is larger than life itself, the film, a wholesome entertainer is about human interaction and true love in all its honesty, albeit told in a very commercially entertaining way laced with rib tickling good humor.
On the whole, Jal is the story of a young water diviner, BAKKA, who is gifted with a special ability to find water in the desert. With the backdrop of water scarcity, the film tells a complex and fascinating story of love, relationships, enmity, deceit and circumstances that bring about the dark side of human character. It is a high-octane, action- drama with a shocking climax. Shot on an epic scale, the film is a visual treat and has managed to capture 'Rann Of Kutch' like never before.
Also starring Kirti Kulhari, Tannishtha Chatterjee, Saidah Jules, Mukul Dev, Yashpal Sharma, Ravi Gossain and others, Jal is scheduled to hit the silver screen on 4th April 2014.
