Good news.   
Dec,04,2009
 

Am so happy and proud of my writer-director Anusha Rizvi. The film she has made, PEEPLI LIVE, has been selected at the Sundance Film Festival, in the competition section. This is quite an achievement as Sundance is a festival which is extremely selective about which films it accepts. In fact, if I am not mistaken, it is the first Indian feature film to make it to the competition section there.

Incidentally, this is the same film that a section of the media has been erroneously reporting as being about farmer suicides. Itís not about farmer suicides. It has also been reported that the film is called Falling. Both errors.

PEEPLI LIVE, is a satire, a black comedy about rural life in India. Except for Raghuvir Yadav, most of the actors are facing the camera for the first time, so a predominantly new cast, many of them of Adivasi origin from Madhya Pradesh. And what performances! I have been acting for 20 years and there was so much that I learnt from watching them.

I havenít spoken about the film before as I like to be sure about how the film has turned out before I speak about it. Am rather happy with the way the film has turned out. Am looking forward to see what kind of response it gets at Sundance.

Fingers crossed.

hello aamir..

Arvind here 2 comments before me took my words.. the movie 3 idiots is just too amazing and inspiring, in fact u are an inspiration to me..

I love your movies esp Lagaan and Tare Zameen par.. i have watched Tzp for 47 times and i have been counting it since i watched it for the first time and theres always a tear that rolls down from my eyes to my cheeks..

Your movies teach us some life learning lessons and im sure there are alot of people learning lessons from your movies and so do i..

Thank you, may god bless you..
