Hindi film-maker Anurag Kashyap has applauded National Award-winning Kannada-language film Thithi, which released in India on Friday (May 6th). He says that he has watched the film three times and can still see it "any number of times".
Written and directed by Raam Reddy, Thithi, which stars Thammegowda S, Channegowda and Abhishek, premiered at the 68th Locarno International Film Festival in August last year.
Kashyap took to Twitter on Friday and urged fans to watch the film.
"Every1in Bengaluru, Mysore and other parts of Karnataka, one of the funniest films that I have seen in recent times, 'Thithi' releases today (Friday)," Kashyap tweeted.
"'Thithi' is that one film that I have seen thrice and I can see it any number of times. Don't miss this gem," he added.
Set in a remote village in South India, 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.
The film won the National Film Award for Best Feature Film in Kannada at the 63rd National Film Awards.
