What would you do if you were born into a family of carjackers and robbers? Titli, set in Dehli's dark, discarded underbelly is a stark, gritty engaging film.
Titli (translated 'butterfly') is the hapless younger brother, scheming to flutter away for good. His brothers get him forcibly married instead. Soon, the new bride is a terrified, unwilling accomplice to the family business.
Watch it for the unusual story arc, splendid performances (Ranvir Shorey is shout out terrific) and intoxicating whiffs of cinema.
