    Forgettable is all I can say about the movie. I dont need to spend two and a half hours to know how bad our system is. There is noting which makes you say oh, i did not think even this was true. The movie does have some good one liners and funny take on news reporting done today but on a whole, I would have preferred to give the movie a miss

  1. The juxtaposition of the tragedy and the lunacy of the circumstances are not completely disparate; satire is an appropriate weapon here, but it's the drama in Peepi Live that truly resonates.

    Peepli Live has a lot in common with Billy Wilder's black comedy Ace In The Hole, in that it explores the cynicism of modern life with wit and honesty.
  3. The ambitious Peepli Live manages to mine substantial dark humor from this tragic situation while offering pointed - and sometimes poignant - social commentary in the process.
