Pras on World Films: “PEEPLI LIVE”

“Peepli Live”

(No rating, 1:46, in English and Hindi) Satirizing the media and the hidebound Indian bureaucracy, the writer-director Anusha Rizvi builds an only fitfully amusing movie around an excellent premise: a debt-ridden farmer in north India decides there’s only one possible solution to his predicament, and that’s killing himself so his family can get a government grant.
