Peepli LIVE

I watched Peepli LIVE on 15th Aug. It's a really nice movie. A movie that makes us think. A movie highlighting plight of farmers.

Farmers, they feed the whole nation, but, they are empty stomach. They don't know what is 9% GDP growth rate. The only percent(%) they understand is how much interest they have to pay for the loan they took.

They are helping us achieve food security and ensure high growth rate; and in reward they are getting slow death, they are dying everyday.

But, I must say, Media is doing a really good job here. If a death can bring them some TRP, they will go to any length to make sure, the person is dead.

We must not forget our F***ing politicians, they are really hard working, they are working overnight to make sure more and more farmers commit sucide, so that they can say Central govt-State govt is doing nothing.

When they feel the situation is getting out of control, they announce schemes like "Nattha Card", this way they say a lot of things, but, do nothing.

This movie is really hard hitting, and it exposes media and politicians.
Media: ye wo log hain to lashon ko dikha dikha kar, aur us lash k naam par hume dara kar paise kamate hain, humare dukh dard se inka koi wasta nahi hai, TRP( read money) is all they care.

Politicians: hmm, ye to thode imandaar hain, ye rajneeti karne ke liye kisi ki lash ka bhi intejaar kar lete hain. They do not care about our lives, our happiness. All they care is "Power" (read money)...

Yahi Media aur Politician ek hi thali k chatte-batte hain...

Now a days news channels never broadcast true news, if a news bring TRP, broadcast it, true or fabricated who cares. Poor condition of farmer, his hungry children, his ill mother or even farmer committing suicide, is not something we want to see.

This is really dangerous, we have to change, otherwise ...


  1. The storyline is thought-provoking...ur review is enough to give it a watch, Ravish!!

  2. Yes it is.
    and it's a honest review from me.
    It's not a movie that will make you laugh or cry, instead, it's the story of a poor man that will make you think, the story goes directly to your mind.
    If you are not into serious cinema, do not go for it.

    **** from me.
