Raw and delinquent
17 December 2015 | by (India) – See all my reviews

"Titli" keeps all the clichés aside and gives you some hard-hitting cinematic experience. Kanu Behl has surely an eye for the avant-garde cinema and directs this cruel and unrepentant film.

Three brothers live their lives doing random car-jacking in Delhi's dark side with their father. They do not have any remorse doing these felonies but everyone is combating the cruelty of life. The poverty, covet to live a better life and crime are the main components of the film.

This is not your every Friday film; it induces a challenge for the viewer and shows that people are surviving in any condition. They can go to any length chasing the dream of being better and living a layman's life. However, there are plethora of complexities and struggle. If you belong to hell, all the roads will bring you back and there is no redemption at all. The resurrection and resurgence is not an easy nut to crack.

It may not be everyone's movie but niche will surely appreciate this because it has a breath of fresh air and it does not rely on pompous or larger than life characters. Every character has a motive and it has been designed carefully.

The long shots and silence describe every nuance and it does not require pages of conversation or dialogs. The acting is powerful and actors have delivered the dialect to the perfection.

We need this kind of cinema which leaves you thinking after watching it and spread the cognizance that there is a whole different life which does not belong to chiffon cinema.

Kudos.
