Enter Peepli a small village in the hinterland where a farmer duo Natha (Omkar Das Manikpuri) and Budhia (Raghuvir Yadav) are struggling to hold on to their land. Threatened by extreme poverty they fall upon a novel plan.

Prepare for the unexpected. In an era of predictability, here comes a welcome change. Peepli [Live] is one of a kind - it has no star attraction, it is a satire on a bleak reality; it is matter-of-fact, and socially-arousing, without being preachy.
