Titli Movie Review: The early reviews by the critics have suggested that the latest directorial venture of Kanu Behl and film starring Ranvir Shorey is impressive.
The latest Bollywood film is a robbery/crime thriller entrapped with love and desires. It stars Ranvir, Amit Sial, Shashank Arora, Lalit Behl, and Shivani Raghuvanshi. It displays that part of the society where violence is hidden just under the sheet. (see: Karva chauth 2015.)
It was earlier screened at the Cannes Film Festival in 2014 and that time too garnered good responses by the audiences. It is releasing in India after a long gap of 1.5 years, i.e., on October 30.
Titli Movie Review
Let’s check out the reviews of Titli as given by the various critics who have already watched the film.
Gayatri Gauri of Firstpost praising the debutant director said that the movie “hits you in the guts and spills out blood”.
“Behl, who makes an impressive directorial debut with Titli, has earlier shown the same unique sparks in Dibakar Banerjee’s Love Sex Aur Dhoka, as co-writer and assistant director. With Banerjee and Yashraj Films backing the movie as co-producers, Titli premiered at Uncertain Regard section of Cannes Film Festival, 2014,” she added. (check: ctet result 2015.)
Shubha Shetty-Saha of Mid-Day gave four stars and said Ranvir Shorey shines in the heist thriller.
“A great story (Sharad Katariya, Kanu Behl), good editing (Namrata Rao) and uncompromising execution makes this a film not to be missed.”Titli Movie Review
Uday Bhatia of Livemint said that the film is “bleak, controlled and impressive”.
“Unrelentingly grim, morally unmoored, Titli festers like a sore on your consciousness. Misleadingly funky second trailer notwithstanding, it’s unlikely to be anyone’s idea of fun. Yet, from time to time, it’s important that a film like this get under our skin and remind us why we value catharsis so much,” Uday added.
Subhash K Jha in his Titli review said: “Interestingly the soundtrack includes a lot of bhajans playing in the background to provide a savagely ironic subtext to the abysmally immoral lives led by the characters. An absolutely unforgettable film.”
Jay Weissberg of Variety said: “Kanu Behl makes a grittily impressive debut with this well-acted tale of a crime family in Delhi.”
