Peepli Live is a rude awakening message about an ever-lasting no-solution problem. Peepli Live , according to most of the people , is about Farmer lives, their problems, land-ownership issues, politics, desperate media, things related to the misture of all these.
But to me, it is about none of the above mention things. Well, I should say, none of the above mentioned things are the primary focus of the film. It is a film about mentality of People. Peepli Live is about the rat-race, peepli live is about the rats themselves who does not know what they are running for. Peepli Live is about the unsatiable desire of winning small materialistic things in life. Peepli Live is about how pathetic lives can look of one-self if you look at the bigger picture.
Nathha, Hari Mahato, Budhia, Amma is no different than Alber Einstein, Diego Maradona, Amartya Sen, Shahrukh Khan,etc. Same geneti materials, similar base pair sequence, all are result of accidental unison of chromosome threads.
To the eternal almighty, shahrukh and nathha both does not matter...but yet, all these so called "People" fail to realise this.
I will not write a whole lot about what was shown in the movie, already lot is written about that. I will just point out that the whole crew had worked extremely hard to portray a rude awakening message. About media, about politics, about hapless-ness, about people. Everyone should see this movie with turning the "on" switch of their brain-neurones.This one will be remembered for long time, who, for the change, understands something about life.
