  • Thithi Movie Review

    thithi movie image

    Thithi is one of the finest films to hit the Kannada silver screen in years. It is also one of the most internationally acclaimed film and continues to be invited to many film festivals across the world. It is not only to know why this Kannada film is being lapped up across the world that you need to watch the film. It is also because it is a rare gem that realistically portrays the life in a village. There are endearing characters and an unusual context for a story. The film does not try hard to show brilliance. The simplicity is its brilliance. 

    For those thinking it is an art film, here is the surprise; Thithi is a comedy film. It chronicles the incidents in the lives of a few main characters during the course of 11 days. 

    The death of the family patriarch, Century Gowda results in strange problems for his son, grandson and great grandson. His son is also an old man but is unwilling to be part of the funeral rituals. His grandson, a middle-aged man is worried about someone taking over the grandfather's property and wants it to transfer it to his name immediately. The youngest is a youth who is just happy making money stealing trees and sand. But during these 11 days he falls in love with a nomadic girl and forgets his duties. All these lead to delectable and funny situations. While as audience we laugh at the problems these people get into, it is also an insight into the simple lives in villages. There is also a profound meaning if only you wish to understand the film in a different light. 

    Director Raam Reddy has woven a simplistic but yet a powerful cinema. Almost all the actors are real villagers and not professional actors. But he has managed to get them to be themselves. They talk and act just like they would do in real life. That is the beauty of this film. Each of the characters behaves normally and do not 'act'. The dialogues are very down to earth and impress with their nativity. 

    When in the age where even commercial film makers fear showing animals in their films in fear of the Animal Welfare Board, you can watch animals normally seen in villages in almost all the scenes. Even they behave naturally! The visuals, dialogues, narrative, screenplay, acting, cinematography, editing, music combine to a perfection to make the film a wholesome experience.

    Thithi is a commercial film if you watch it for the comedy. If you want to dwell deeper it is also an art film. Either way it is one of the most important films in Kannada and deserves all our support. 

    Chitraloka Rating 4.5/5

  • ಜನರನ್ನು ಟಾಕೀಸಿಗೆ ಕರೆತರಲು ಮತ್ತೆ ಹಳೆ ಸಿನಿಮಾ..!

    old hit movies in demand again

    ಅಕ್ಟೋಬರ್ ಹಾಗೂ ನವೆಂಬರ್ ತಿಂಗಳಲ್ಲಿ ರಿಲೀಸ್ ಆಗಿರುವ ಚಿತ್ರಗಳ ಸಂಖ್ಯೆ ಏನಿಲ್ಲವೆಂದರೂ 50ರ ಸಮೀಪದಲ್ಲಿದೆ. ರಿಲೀಸ್ ಆದ ಚಿತ್ರಗಳೇನು ಒಂದಾ.. ಎರಡಾ.. ಹೀಗೆ ಬೆನ್ನು ಬೆನ್ನಿಗೆ ಚಿತ್ರಗಳು ರಿಲೀಸ್ ಆದಾಗ, ಹೊಸ ಹೊಸ ಚಿತ್ರಗಳ ನಿರ್ಮಾಪಕರು, ನಮಗೆ ಥಿಯೇಟರುಗಳೇ ಇಲ್ಲ ಎಂದು ಪರದಾಡಬೇಕಿತ್ತು. ಹೋರಾಟ ನಡೆಯಬೇಕಿತ್ತು. ಆದರೆ, ಇದಾವುದೂ ಆಗುತ್ತಿಲ್ಲ. ಬದಲಿಗೆ ಥಿಯೇಟರುಗಳವರು ಹಳೆಯ ಚಿತ್ರಗಳನ್ನು ರಿಲೀಸ್ ಮಾಡುತ್ತಿದ್ದಾರೆ.

    ಹೌದು, ಬೆಂಗಳೂರು ಸೇರಿದಂತೆ ರಾಜ್ಯದ ಹಲವೆಡೆ ಥಿಯೇಟರ್‍ನವರು ರಾಜಕುಮಾರ, ಗೋಧಿ ಬಣ್ಣ ಸಾಧಾರಣ ಮೈಕಟ್ಟು, ತಿಥಿ, ರಂಗಿತರಂಗ ಚಿತ್ರಗಳನ್ನು ಹಾಕಲು ಶುರು ಮಾಡಿದ್ದಾರೆ. ಕಾರಣ ಇಷ್ಟೆ, ಲೆಕ್ಕಕ್ಕೇ ಸಿಗದಷ್ಟು ಸಿನಿಮಾ ರಿಲೀಸ್ ಆಗಿದ್ದರೂ, ಯಾವ ಚಿತ್ರಗಳೂ ಪ್ರೇಕ್ಷಕರನ್ನು ಸೆಳೆಯುವಲ್ಲಿ ವಿಫಲವಾಗುತ್ತಿವೆ. ಹೀಗಾಗಿ ಎಷ್ಟೋ ಚಿತ್ರಮಂದಿರಗಳಲ್ಲಿ ಹೊಸ ಸಿನಿಮಾಗಳನ್ನು ಎರಡು, ಮೂರನೇ ದಿನಕ್ಕೆ ಎತ್ತಂಗಡಿ ಮಾಡಲಾಗುತ್ತಿದೆ. ಪ್ರೇಕ್ಷಕರನ್ನು ಮತ್ತೆ ಥಿಯೇಟರಿನತ್ತ ಕರೆತರಲು ಚಿತ್ರಮಂದಿರಗಳ ಮಾಲೀಕರು ಈಗ ಹಳೆಯ ಚಿತ್ರಗಳ ಮೊರೆ ಹೋಗುತ್ತಿದ್ದಾರೆ.

    ತಿಥಿ ಸಿನಿಮಾ ಖ್ಯಾತಿಯ ಪೂಜಾ ಯುಟರ್ನ್ ತೆಗೆದುಕೊಂಡಿದ್ದಾರೆ. ಅವರು ನಟಿಸುತ್ತಿರುವ ಹೊಸ ಚಿತ್ರದ ಟೈಟಲ್ ಯುಟರ್ನ್-2. ಈ ಹಿಂದೆ ಬಂದಿದ್ದ ಶ್ರದ್ಧಾ ಶ್ರೀನಾಥ್, ರಾಧಿಕಾ ನಾರಾಯಣ್ ನಟಿಸಿದ್ದ ಯುಟರ್ನ್ ಚಿತ್ರಕ್ಕೂ ಈ ಯುಟರ್ನ್ 2ಗೂ ಸಂಬಂಧವಿಲ್ಲ. ಯುಟರ್ನ್2ಗೆ ಹೊಸ ನಿರ್ದೇಶಕ ಚಂದ್ರು ಓಬಯ್ಯ. ನಿರ್ದೇಶಕರೂ ಅವರೇ. ಹೀರೋ ಕೂಡಾ ಅವರೇ.

    ನಿರ್ದೇಶಕ ಮತ್ತು ನಾಯಕನಾಗಿ ಇದು ನನಗೆ ಮೊದಲ ಸಿನಿಮಾ. ಈ ಹಿಂದೆ ಡೈರೆಕ್ಷನ್ ವಿಭಾಗದಲ್ಲಿ ಕೆಲಸ ಮಾಡಿದ್ದೇನೆ. ಸಣ್ಣ ಪುಟ್ಟ ಪಾತ್ರಗಳಲ್ಲಿ ನಟಿಸಿದ್ದೇನೆ ಎನ್ನುವ ಚಂದ್ರು ಓಬಯ್ಯ ಚಿತ್ರದ ಅರ್ಧಕ್ಕರ್ಧ ಶೂಟಿಂಗ್ ಮುಗಿಸಿದ್ದಾರೆ.

    ಚಿತ್ರದಲ್ಲಿ ನನ್ನದು ಯಾವುದಕ್ಕೂ ಕೇರ್ ಮಾಡದ, ಉಡಾಫೆ ಹುಡುಗಿಯ ಪಾತ್ರ. ಬುಲೆಟ್ ರೈಡಿಂಗ್ ಎಲ್ಲ ಇದೆ ಎಂದು ಪಾತ್ರದ ಬಗ್ಗೆ ಥ್ರಿಲ್ಲಾಗಿದ್ದಾರೆ ಪೂಜಾ.
