IFC Review: Peepli Live

"Here we are shitting bricks and you're singing love songs," Budhia (Raghubir Yadav) tells his younger brother Natha (Omkar Das Manikpuri) as they amble down a dusty road, en route to see their local representative about repaying a government loan on the eve of foreclosure on their farm. It's not hard to imagine these words might've been running through producer Aamir Khan's head when the famed Bollywood star ("Lagaan") decided to get behind "Peepli Live," a small-scale satire that arrives in America on a wave of publicity unusual for a release of an Indian film on U.S. shores.

The story is too old to be commented.
