Go watch 'Peepli Live' if you have nothing to do. Actually go, even if you have something to do. Its very good.

I guess by now everybody must have heard how great the movie is. For me, the best thing about the movie was the costumes. It was so dam realistic. I mean I literally felt like I was in one of those interior parts of Bihar for a while. The actors of course could not have been better chosen. Raghuvir Yaadav lives the role literally. the casual manner in which he asks his brother to commit suicide was amazing. Though it was a sad moment in the movie, the atrocious manner in which he approaches the solution was hilarious. This guy is really under rated. And Omkar Das as Natha is brilliant too. there is something special about theater artists who perform on- screen. They somehow beat the other actors hands down, however small their role is.

Nawazuddin Siddiqui needs special mention. His sincerity was so endearing.I really wish they hadnt ended his role midway.

Farmers committing suicide has been reported so many times that we have stopped thinking of it as a serious issue. But re-visiting this issue through this movie makes you feel so helpless.
