Thithi movie is a family drama with village backdrop written and directed by Raam Reddy. Consisting of a cast of non-professional actors from villages in the Mandya district of Karnataka, the film is a light-hearted story about three generations of men reacting to the death of their 101-year old patriarch.
Thithi is a dramatic comedy about how three generations of sons react to the death of the oldest in their clan, a man named Century Gowda: a locally renowned, highly cantankerous 101-year-old man. Set in a remote village in South India, the three storylines intertwine before converging at Century Gowda’s ‘thithi’ — the final funeral celebration, 11 days after a death.
Century Gowda’s eldest son, Gadappa, is himself a little old man who spends his time nonchalantly wandering the village fields, puffing cheap cigarettes and swigging brandy. Gadappa’s far more materialistic son, Thamanna, plots to illegally sell Century Gowda’s five-acre property, even though the land officially belongs to his father. At the same time, Thamanna’s confident pubescent son, Abhi, shrugs his responsibilities to relentlessly pursue a shepherd girl Cauvery.
Thithi Movie won National Film Award for Best Feature Film in Kannada at 63rd National Film Awards and also this movie won two awards Golden Leopard for Filmmakers of the Present and Swatch Best First Feature at 68th Locarno International Film Festival.
