Peepli [Live] Releasing on Aug 13th

Produced by Aamir Khana and written and directed by the much acclaimed first time director Anusha Rizvi, Peepli Live is a satire on media and political response to farmer’s suicides. With a motley cast of new and known artistes such as Raghubir Yadav, Omkar Das Manikpuri, Malaika Shenoy and others, Peepli Live which is scheduled for release on August 13, 2010 has already won several accolades in India and abroad. It has already competed in the Sundance Film Festival, is being screened at the Berlin International Film Festival and has won the Best Feature Film award at the Durban Film Festival in South Africa.

The film centres around two poor farmers Natha and Budhia from Peepli village who are about to lose their small plots of land since they have not paid off their loans. However there is a solution to this as the government allows farmers who have committed suicide to keep their lands. As Natha is considering whether he should commit ‘suicide’ to save his land, the media, politicians contesting in the local elections and other villagers join the madness to heighten the drama of his suicide.
