Movie Reviews

The A.V. Club - 8/10 by Noel Murray 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.
Los Angeles Times - 8/10 by Gary Goldstein 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.
Variety - 8/10 by Rob Nelson Debuting writer-director Anusha Rizvi manages to wrest a lively feature out of a gravely serious issue, capturing the desperation of India's village farmers, as well as the nation's shift from agriculture to industrialization, without losing sight of the entertainment principle.
The New York Times - 7/10 by Rachel Saltz The writer-director Anusha Rizvi, making her feature debut, shoots her story efficiently and with visual panache, but after a compelling setup her script runs out of juice.
Village Voice - 7/10 by Aaron Hillis It's an unusual taste of mainstream Indian cinema (or, thanks to superstar Aamir Khan's production company, it's a small film given an unusually mainstream push), unexpectedly irreverent with an earthier, folkier soundtrack than the typical Bollywood electro-bounce.
Empire - 6/10 by Anna Smith While the tone may shift from satire to farce at times, this is a highly assured debut by Rizvi.
New York Daily News - 6/10 by Joe Neumaier Peepli Live may not consistently hit the mark, but it's savvy and humane, which goes a long way.
Movieline - 6/10 by Michelle Orange Peepli Live opens out slowly to encompass several factions of Indian society, including the press, local, state, and federal politicians, and the shady elements binding them all together. It's a meticulously engineered design that a show like The Wire took several years to execute; here the strain shows within the first half hour.
Time Out - 6/10 by Eric Hynes Unlike satires that coast on winking self-satisfaction, Anusha Rizvi's debut is both a heartfelt and a genuinely funny skewering of India's convoluted caste-consciousness.
Boxoffice Magazine - 6/10 by Tim Cogshell 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.
San Francisco Chronicle - 5/10 by G. Allen Johnson Colorful and at times quite lively, but I wish it were funnier and its satirical edge a bit sharper.
User Review - 10/10 by black_mamba I mean I just loved this movie... Okay, it may not have well known actors of Bollywood starring, but the level of acting of other actors is remarkable! Any other guy who's not an Indian will possibly not understand this movie because itI mean I just loved this movie...
