Movie Review: Titli
Cast: Ranvir Shorey, Shashank Arora, Shivani Raghuvanshi, Lalit Behl, Amit Sial and Prashant Singh
Director: Kanu Behl
In the midst of this opulent world a very significant number of the population lives in dark, gloomily and lowly, Titli is about them and you must have seen some of these faces in traffic jam & other crowded places. Even if you don’t reside in metro or did not encounter with people who lives in these crowded bylanes, you can still relate with them as you can find these characters in any city and people who live in there. For this, all you need to do is to change the actors with the people, the only difference you’ll realize is of stark standards in urban districts.
The story is of Titli (Shashank Arora), the youngest one in this poor car-jackers family who resides in the outskirts of Delhi with his elder brothers Vikram (Ranvir Shorey) and Bawla (Amit Sial). Titli’s both elder brothers lives in the agony of getting a better life in future and in this stride they ruin their present. The trio brothers and their father (Lalit Behl) make the ends meet with whatsoever they have earned from the petty roadside robberies they do, which they call it ‘gasht”. One day they decided to get Titli marry so that they have a girl in their gang who’ll help them conduct hefty robberies in easy way. They find Neelu (Shivani Raghuvanshi) and decided to make her Titli’s bride. But Neelu has her own dreams and wants her husband Titli to fulfill those. Now whose dreams are fulfilled, if any and how?
This movie is well written and gives you a sneak peak of another part of our society. All the actors have performed so well that you can’t think of their original identity but only the characters they are portraying in the movie. Ranvir Shorey doles out his best performance of his career. But Shashank Arora is the one who is going to impress you the most. His looks clearly evince his grief and malchony and makes him a deplored youngster whose dreams are crunched under heaps of violated activities. Every character will engulf and take you along and this tryst with the reality will hook you till the end of the movie. This movie is not promoted much, which will certainly affect its business, but it’s a treat to watch this rare piece of art.
