PEEPLI [LIVE] - OPPA OAKLAND STYLE!
MONDAY, MAY 13 @ 7:00pm

PEEPLI [LIVE]

2010 / NR / 95 minutes
directors: Anusha Rizvi, Mahmood Farooqui

A simple man learns he might be better off dead, at least financially, in this satiric comedy. Natha (Omkar Das Manikpuri) and Budhia (Raghubir Yadav) are two brothers who run a family farm in Peepli, a small town in India. Business has been bad on the farm, and the brothers are unable to repay a government loan, with a default judgment due any day. When the brothers call on a local politician to ask if anything can be done while they wait for a judge's ruling on their case, he facetiously suggests that one of them could commit suicide, since the government would pay benefits to the surviving family members. Natha doesn't realize the official is joking and volunteers to kill himself, while a television reporter overhears the conversation and immediately puts the story on the air. As everyone from Natha's son to the proverbial man on the street weighs in on what he should do, the farmer wonders if suicide really is the last, best way he can help his loved ones. - Mark Deming, Rovi, RottenTomatoes
