Peepli [Live] is not the movie for all the mass public, but for others, it’s definitely a hard hitting. Aamir is a great Personality, and whatever film he chooses, it’s a definite worth watching. That’s what we all think, and he proved once again this time. But what makes this film so special, for the rest of our others, that we are bound to appreciate this film wherever and whenever we get chance. To appreciate any film, it has to cross three levels to achieve that, Script, Direction & Performances. Peepli [Live] has crossed these three levels in a super way, that it has surely won our hearts right after the film ended.
As we all know that these types of movies are made up many times by different directors, but didn’t get any that kind of recognition. Just because of Aamir, people who weren’t aware of such truths are now aware. All thanks to Aamir, that he had produced this movie and gave a nice effort to make some awareness. I guess without him this film would have not got that much of recognition. I am sure many critics people and many movie lovers who can watch any movie, if had appreciated as many times, then also most of the people wouldn’t have watched this film. It’s just because of Aamir’s label in this movie, many-many aam janta audiences have watched this, and now they are also thankful to Aamir.
Though Debutant director Miss Anushka Rizvi has taken forward her first step into direction, she had showed her talent in a tremendous way. Without any dialogues, without any super hero or any experienced player in the film, without any good facial expressions in the cast; Anushka Rizvi has conveyed the message what she was trying to say in each and every scene. Now that’s what the real definition means of a talented director and Miss Anushka really is indeed. I still remember the very last scene of the movie, where a simple zoom in from the camera is being focused on Natha, who is working as a worker in some construction site, and then showing several shots of the other workers, and then showing the last painful line in the screen that nearly 8 million farmers quit their farming between 1991-2001. I was speechless, extremely stunning way to end the film. Learned a lot from this film and got aware from many things. Thanks Anushka for giving us such a beautiful film, and just because of you, we have understood the message what you were trying to convey.
Performances were super, as there is no open secret here related to this, but I really wanted to thank to all the cast out here for giving such a talented performances by them. Without them Peepli [Live] would not be that lively.
We want more films like this, and films such as Well Done Abba, Rann, and etc. which show us the real fact situation what’s going on around us, and the real truth mirror about our media and government.
