The film is based on the experiment done by a mad scientist (Mithun) who comes up with a lovable crocodile. Like the dolphins, this crocodile was implanted with intelligence. At this point, an NRI (Jackie) eyes this project as he wants to build his own Jurassic Park and wants to get control on this crocodile.
The film will be remade in Hindi as Gehra Paani with a higher budget than the Bengali version. For the Hindi version, the cast and location will remain same except Mithun, who will be replaced by Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt. Both the versions are being made at a budget of ₹25 crore (US$3.9 million) and would be shot in the Sunderban.
