Release: 27th July, 2018
Rohan Deshpande’s Pipsi a children movie starring Maithili Patwardhan, Sahil Joshi is set to hit the theatres on July 27th.
Pipsi is an endearing story told from the viewpoints of children, juxtaposes the mythic with the realism of a village in Maharashtra. An acute sense of care and belonging is brought about through the innocence of the characters of Chaani and Baalu, with the duo scavenging for an aquatic creature who could supposedly save Chaani’s mother from imminent death and cure her terminal illness. Their main obstacles on this journey prove to be the lack of water itself, which alone causes problems in finding a fish similar to the one which King Satyavrat used to save humanity from being engulfed in majestic waters.
Pipsi was screened in Jio MAMI Mumbai Film Festival the previous year, with the story of two children and their pet fish endearing the audience to great a great extent. Rohan Deshpande’s film’s premise definitely makes it worth a watch.
