Peepli Live

Poverty hits prime-time, in a warm, witty and provocative satire from India.

In the village of Peepli, farmers have grown so desperate that they're seriously considering taking up a government deal that offers compensation to their families if they commit suicide. When word of this reaches a celebrity news anchor, the plight of Peepli becomes a TV sensation – and one naïve farmer finds himself on very public suicide watch…

Produced by the Bollywood superstar Amir Khan, this is dark, fun and all too believable.
