Brutally real - Not for children
2 May 2016 | by indianatureSee all my reviews

I wanted to watch Titli for awhile and managed to get hold of a VCD eventually.

This is a very dark story, not for those who are looking for a 'time- pass' watch.

It is also brutally real. The settings are so real. Apart from the smells of the surroundings that obviously do not come through, this is perhaps too real for comfort.

Whoever did the casting did a brilliant job. Shashank Arora is the perfect Titli, Shivani - Neelu as is the rest of the cast.

It is an unusual plot, very well executed. While I enjoyed the film as a film, this is not for those who seek entertainment in a movie.

The abusive language and some of the violent scenes are not recommended for children.

That said, Titli is worth a watch for those who like serious cinema.
