Kannada film Thithi is a light-hearted drama that revolves around three generations of men reacting to the death of their 101-year old grandfather ‘Century Gowda.’ The three stories come together on the 11th day (Thithi) from the death, the day of the final funeral celebration.

Directed by Raam Reddy, the film premiered at the Locarno International Film Festival in Switzerland last year. It took home ‘Pardo d’oro Cineasti Del Presente Premio Nescens’ (Golden Leopard, Filmmakers of the Present Competition) and ‘Swatch First Feature Award’ for the best debut feature.
Thithi also went on to win the Jury Grand Prize at the Mumbai Film Festival in 2015.
“It began with international acclaim and support from legends like Francis Ford Coppola. National support and praise from people like Anurag Kashyap and other top national industry leaders has been incredibly encouraging. After seeing the unprecedented response to Sairat, running with English subtitles for national audiences, I can’t wait to see the response to Thithi nationally,” says the Bangalore-based filmmaker.

Francis Ford Coppola called Thithi joyous with unforgettable characters. “I want to grow up and be like Century Gowda,” he said in his review.
The film was also selected for 2016 New Directors/New Films, New York’s annual film festival.
Backed by Pratap Reddy and Sunmin Park, Thithi has already won wide critical acclaim nationally and globally. According to a recent buzz, it could be the first Kannada film to become India’s official entry to the Oscars!
The National Award-winning film is set to release across India on June 3 with English subtitles.

Hey. This is Jacob from Houston. I’ve heard a lot about Bollywood but never ventured into regional cinema besides Bollywood. I barely knew anything about it until I chanced upon Flickside. I’ll try find this one with subtitles and watch it. I’m hoping I wont be disappointed. Please keep sharing more such films.
Thanks for sharing. Looking forward to watching it.
Excellent! Thanks for sharing. Looks like it’s worth a watch.
Thithi is winning awards at film festivals. Kudos to the makers.
Headed to torrents😝
This one is a gem of a movie. Must watch. Highly recommended.
Amazing site, Carry on the great work.
Rarely do we see such films made in India. Gradually and thankfully the audience is moving towards good content. They’re demanding it. It’s sad that trash like housefull and flop franchises still manage to make 100 crore. But I hope things will change in the future. The audience is maturing, their mindset is maturing. They are not ready to be taken for granted. You can’t spoil them with bad choices for too long.
Thanks for sharing your info. I truly appreciate your efforts and I am waiting for your next post thanks once again.
