This Film Has Won “The Godfather” Director’s Heart, A National Award And Its Actors Are Real Villagers

“Thithi”, winner of the National Film Award for Best Kannada Film in 2016 and also the winner of 2 Golden Leopards at the 2015 Locarno Film Festival is a Kannada feature film. This feature film directed by Raam Reddy has released in theaters on 6th May, 2016.

“Thithi is a joyous view on life in a village in India with unforgettable characters,” says Francis Ford Coppola, Director of “The Godfather.”

A realistic and light hearted comedy, Thithi, is about how the three generations of sons react to the death of their patriarch, 101 year old, Century Gowda. The three stories converge at Century Gowda’s Thithi-The final funeral, which takes place 11 days after his death. The film is set in a remote village in South India with a cast consisting of the village residents from around the Mandya district of Karnataka.

The film has received huge response around the world and I am sure after watching the trailer you would want to watch it as well! Can’t wait to get my tickets, can you?
