Product description

Debutant writer-director anusha rizvi tells us about the india of today in this amusingly bittersweet satire-peepli [live]. On the week of local elections in the indian village of peepli, two poor farmers, natha and budhia, face losing their land over an unpaid government loan. When a journalist overhears budhia urge natha to "do what needs to be done" for the sake of their families, a media frenzy ignites around weather or not natha will commit suicide.

Review

The high point of the film indeed is its smart and sassy script. But more than all this, it's the life-like portrayals that add a refreshing authenticity to the film. Handpicking the actors mostly from Habib Tanvir's famed Naya Theatre troupe was indeed a coup for debutant director Anusha Rizvi. The show stealers here are Raghuvir Yadav, Omkar Das Manikpuri and Farrukh Jaffer. The music of the film deserves a special mention, with folksy lyrics and tunes by Indian Ocean, Nageen Tanvir, Brij Mandal and the rest.

Peepli Live is a lively and living document on the 'other' India, that lives beyond the neon lights and the cruising metros. Another ace up Aamir Khan's sleeve! This time as producer of a film that has loads to say, without being boring and didactic. --platform47.com

Cinematographer Shanker Raman efficiently captures the rural essence of the film, ably supported by the art and costume designers. With a live in its title and a suicide in its theme, Peepli Live makes for a perfect paradox. And through such contradiction, it highlights the absurdities of existence. Visiting this village is strongly recommended! --platform47.com
