Raam Reddy’s National Award-winning Kannada-language film Thithi will hit theatres across India on June 3. The film, which has received a lot of critical appreciation, has already become a commercial success in Karnataka where it released before.
The film will be released with English subtitles. “Thithi has seen amazing organic growth and has grown from strength to strength. It began with international acclaim and support from legends like Francis Ford Coppola.
“National support and praise from people like Anurag Kashyap and other top national industry leaders has been incredibly encouraging,” Reddy said in a statement. Reddy shared that the film, which released on May 6 in Karnataka, is still going “housefull in urban centres”.
“After seeing the unprecedented response to Sairat, running with English subtitles for national audiences, I can’t wait to see the response to Thithi nationally,” Reddy added.
Produced by Pratap Reddy and Sunmin Park, Thithi was screened in over 12 prestigious international and national film festivals and won 13 awards.

The film started its journey at the prestigious Work-in-Progress Lab (WIP) at the NFDC Film Bazaar, 2014 where it was declared the Best WIP Fiction Feature.
Thithi is a dramatic comedy about how three generations of sons react to the death of the oldest in their clan, a man named Century Gowda: a locally renowned, highly cantankerous 101-year-old man.
Set in a small village in Karnataka, the three storylines intertwine before converging at Century Gowda’s ‘thithi’ - the final funeral celebration, 11 days after a death.
