Peepli Live

On the eve of national elections in the tiny Indian village of Peepli, a poor farmer named Natha faces a foreclosure on his farm. An apathetic local politician suggests suicide in order to qualify for a government program for deceased farmers—a suggestion Natha's brother views as a sensible solution to the problem. Suddenly, Natha becomes a cause célèbre, with reporters, politicians and bureaucrats jockeying to exploit the desperate family man's "will he or won't he?" dilemma. Timely political satire from Bollywood megastar-turned-producer Aamir Khan. In Hindi with English subtitles. 106 minutes
