Kanu Behl’s directorial debut “Titli”, which has been winning accolades in film festivals all over the world, will release in India on October 16.
The film, which stars Ranvir Shorey, Amit Sial and newcomer Shashank Arora, has been produced by “Detective Byomkesh Bakshy” director Dibakar Banerjee and Yash Raj Films.
The movie tells the story of Titli, the youngest member of a violent car-jacking brotherhood, who plots a desperate bid to escape the ‘family’ business.
His struggle to do so is countered at each stage by his indignant brothers, who finally try marrying him off to ‘settle’ him.
“Titli” received rave reviews when it was first screened at the 2014 Cannes International Film Festival where it was the official selection in the Un Certain Regard section, and has since then travelled to 22 international film festivals, winning 8 awards and has opened to immense box office success in France and Germany.
