We decided in the morning that we will go to Orion Mall to watch the latest Kannada movie "Thithi" for 4.50 pm show. When I checked at "BookMyShow", it was indicating "filling fast". So I booked two seats online. When we reached there it was housefull, as the movie is drawing lot of urban and rural crowd.
It is a movie, that tells us what;s happening in the villages, without going there. "Thithi" is the kannada name for funeral ceremony of a dead person. But the movie is much more than that. Life in the villages, difficulties of farmers, people who cheat the villagers, youngsters aspirations and their world, and with sensitivity of so many other things.

Thamme Gowda, who struggles to raise money for Thithi rituals and the ceremony, makes a deal with real estate guy to sell 5 acres of land, though the property was not in his name, for which he spends Rs.25,000 for a fake death certificate of his father.
However, everything fizzles out when Gaddappa returns to the ceremony.
