The film takes a cross-eyed look at the deepening water crisis and changing social order in rural India, specifically in a parched part of Odisha.
It rains a flurry of blows on its chosen targets. However, not all of them find the sweet spot.
The headman of this hamlet is Kharu Pehelwan (Gulshan Grover), a wannabe Dalit politician who has scores to settle with the Raja and his men.
The film has a bunch of oddballs. A wily priest grows marijuana in his temples backyard, a feisty sex-worker receives water pouches by way of payment for her services, and a gritty weaver is intent on digging a tunnel to gain access to the water source that will help him get rich quick.
While Saurabh Shukla turns in a robust performance as the pitiable but unstoppable landlord, Gulshan Grover is left groping in the dark because his character suffers from serious under-development.
The love story is only one of the several strands of Kaun Kitney Paani Mein - it takes centrestage only when it triggers the climactic farce-tinged mayhem.
So neither Kunal Kapoor nor Radhika Apte has much to do beyond floating around talking about soil re-mineralisation.
Kaun Kitney Paani Mein is the story of two sets of bickering villagers who have a history of terrible inter-clan violence that goes back three decades.
One group, made up of people of higher birth, lives in the upper village. The other, composed of the downtrodden and dispossessed, resides in the lower village.
That apart, Kaun Kitney Paani Mein does not do enough to conjure up the ethos of the cinematically neglected cultural landscape that its quirky narrative is set in.
Panda throws in a peppy Hindi version of the timeless Sambalpuri folk song, Rangabati, to evoke a sense of place and musical tradition, but the films specific regional moorings remain ambiguous.
The upper village, which has no water, is lorded over by Raja Braj Kishore Singh Deo (Saurabh Shukla), the profligate scion of a royal family who has fallen on hard days but has lost none of his bad habits.
The lower village is flush with water, thanks to the rain that its denizens harvested 30 years ago to create a pond in their midst.
Kaun Kitney Paani Mein takes on too much - politics of water, wasteful consumption, crisis of agriculture, soil toxicity, caste oppression, short-sighted patriarchy, even honour killing.
That at times is the films undoing. Greater focus on its central theme may have lent it the sharpness that it needed in order to cut deeper.
But that said, there is much to admire in some of the reflections of reality that Kaun Kitney Paani Mein captures.
Panda interlaces the spirit of his kind of activist cinema with the dynamics of crowd-pleasing storytelling in an attempt to deliver a pressing public interest message couched in a lighthearted style.
The outcome is not consistently salutary. The high-mindedness of Pandas enterprise gets adversely subsumed all too often in the air of mirth that the film strives to generate.
