Govind Nihlani, Benegal and such directors have made much better films on rural India. Here it comes from Aamir therefore it is found to be good. The film has substance but not style. It is a little overrated, I guess

absolutely nothing to rave about.... the movie has 2 different angles all together... 1 ur showing a farmers death being hyped by media... another the farmers change there profession because they dont earn much in this profession... wat is he try to say... m confused...
You bollywood fans are now casting camels, goats, backward subhumans from north Indian villages, and showcasing your 'great backwardness' for the whole world to see.
You guys will either copy HOllywood and show half naked women dancing in metro stations, or you will show the utter filth of north indian slums. Can you guys not settle for the middle class version of the real majority India, and make some quality cinema.
And the huge marketing for this peepli live pathetic movie, you northys are really pathetic.

how much of india is the urban middle class that you are talking about??? In fact dude just open your eyes and you will find cows, dogs etc on the roads of most Indian cities....irrespective of north, south, east or west india. What peepli shows is true for a very large population of our farmers. And if you dont know india is still very much an agriculture intensive country - so there is no point shyin away from the truth dude.... What u want to see shambolic pretty pictured romcoms all year around or what??
And if thats what you want then nobody invited you to see peepli!!!! Every one could make out from the trailers what it is about'''' but i guess u somehow dint!!! What a pity...now wonder u talked about goats & camels in your comment. I wish you had mentioned donkeys....wud have been more appropriate

Perfectly understood. India is still a poor country. All this talk about economic growth etc. seems like a joke. Only rich are getting richer here.
