Synopsis: In a tiny corner of a giant country a poor farmer is about to lose everything. His brother has a plan to win it all back!
Peepli [Live] is a satire, which revolves around a villager from Central India called Natha,his brother Budhia and their family. The family is about to lose their land because they are unable to repay a loan, when, they hear of a government programme which offers the family of any farmer committing suicide a compensation of rupees 100,000 ($2000). The older brother convinces his sibling into agreeing to commit suicide. This sets in motion a chain of events which finds Natha in the eye of a storm. The local big wigs, the state government, high ranking bureaucrats, federal ministers and the national media all become stakeholders in the mad circus that erupts.
This is the story of India today. Rural society, the bureaucracy, media, politics and life . . .
