Vaibhav Munjal’s new brief film Leap Lipi is about a 60-something male still coping with a fact that his birthday falls on a one dreaded day of a year – a 29th of February. Yes, it comes only once each 4 years and that is because technically in a lifetime of about 66 years, Ashok has been means to applaud only 16 birthdays.

While on a surface, celebrating your birthday once each 4 years is not that large a understanding though when we see it by a waste lens of Lokhande’s character, we finish adult feeling for him. The credit for that also goes to Ashok Lokhande. He is means to constraint a emotions of his impression ideally with his some-more than healthy act.

Loneliness is one of a sheer realities that many Indian households understanding with today. But not many cinematic ventures understanding with it with a approach Leap Lipi has. And that is what creates this brief film a lovely watch. Here we have a waste aged male confronting a kind of existential predicament when on one of a birthday eves (February 28) he realises he still has to wait for dual some-more years to applaud his subsequent birthday and he is not wholly certain he will live adult to that day.

While typically we design a brief film like this to hurl out in a conform of single-handed monologue, it is not a approach Munjal has selected for himself. With Rajagopalan Ganesan’s Pramod, he is means to interpose a kind of jaunty confidence within his touching plot. His not-so-ingenious preposition to stop time is somehow accurately a proclivity that a few-pegs-down Lokhande needs during a moment. And Ganeshan is roughly ideal in his act as a high-spirited, generally happy person. The dialogues are convincing and a approach a credentials strain takes a jump from Indian religious songs to a Norah Jones strain is deputy of a ray of wish that Pramod’s elementary movement has given Ashok’s character.

Vaibhav Munjal’s Leap Lipi is a heart-warming story that reiterates a fact that even pointless conversations with delivery-boys can leave we with a feel-good feeling about life.
