Synopsis

Natha a poor farmer from Peepli village in the heart of rural India is about to lose his plot of land due to an unpaid government loan. A quick fix to the problem is the very same government’s program that aids the families of indebted farmers who have committed suicide. As a means of survival Farmer Natha can choose to die! His brother is happy to push him towards this unique “honor” but Natha is reluctant. Local elections are around the corner and what might've been another unnoticed event turns into a “cause celebre” with everyone wanting a piece of the action.

DVD and Blu-ray Releases for October 12th, 2010

October 11th, 2010

A strange week for the DVD and Blu-ray Release Report, as there are only five featured reviews for releases coming out this week. However, there are also eight featured reviews for releases that arrived late, plus another eight or so that came out this week where the screener is late.
