The film plunges into this pitiless milieu with headstrong assurance, presenting a paternalistic world where corruption seeps into people's pores and women need backbones of steel to survive.
All the technical work is top quality. Namrata Rao's editing keeps the rhythm flowing, while sound effects and music are used to great effect to pump up the mood.
Kanu Behl's Titli is the most impressive film of this year so far. Its tryst with reality will keep you hooked till the end, to say the least.
Titli takes place in the infinite and complicated transactions between the peons of corruption, the men on the street who scrape, rob, and kill to keep the fat cats happy.
Debut films are always a bit rough around the edges, but Titli is a little too blunt and all too intentionally. Yes his film shows some relevant themes, but you can't be so serious and morose about your subject.
Perhaps it is time Bollywood discards the candy floss version of the great Indian family and adopts this more real, searing version.
Behl and Katariya wash off the gloss, dishonesty and sentimentality that have clung to depictions of the Indian family and reveal a face that is ugly but also commonplace.
Right from the opening scene, Titli snatches you from the safe and secure confines of your home and drops you amidst the violent chaos, caused by the crime inflicting dysfunctional family.
Effortlessly blends noirish intrigue with on-location, you-are-there squalor
