'Titli' tweet review: Ranvir Shorey, Shashank Arora anchor this engaging film with their powerful performances

A still from 'Titli'.

A still from 'Titli'.

Will the dark world of ‘Titli’ leave the viewers shocked? Divya Pal of IBNLive is inside the theater to get you all answers.

'Titli', an independent film which has been shot a lot like a documentary with the support of Yash Raj Films and Dibakar Banerjee Productions, promises to offer a story of a dysfunctional family and desperate attempts of a young boy (Shashank Arora) to escape from the tyrannical situation. The film's story and actors' powerful performances were quite evidently the reason that helped ‘Titli’ get selected for the prestigious Un Certain Regard section at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival.

Directed by Kanu Behl, who assisted director Dibakar Banerjee on 'Oye Lucky! Lucky Oye!' and co-wrote 'LSD: Love, Sex Aur Dhokha', has also used instances from personal life to make it real. The film which also features his father Lalit, also gives an insight into the strained relationship with him as it talks about the patriarchy in a highly consumerist world. The film also features Ranvir Shorey, Amit Sial, and mark Bollywood debut of Shashank Arora and Shivani Raghuvanshi.

10.35 AM .@KanuBehl's #Titli releases today and we are ready to tweet review the film. Stay tuned.

10.37 AM Aspirations and monetary constraints - #Titli explains few of its themes in its opening scene featuring #ShashankArora

10.55 AM The narrow lanes in Delhi and a small house where #Titli lives with his family are as claustrophobic as their relationship.

11.05 AM Night time hai haath saaf ho jaega gadi mei: #ShashankArora says after helping family wd carjacking business. How casual about crime #Titli

11.15 AM Just a glimpse of the life that #Titli’s family lives will leave you shocked. It is revolting and sickening. But just so real

11.16 AM 'Paise bachati hai', 'purchase mei achchi hai' is what the bride's family says to ensure marriage proposal isn't denied. #Titli

11.17 AM #Titli aka #ShashankArora stands in stark contrast to his brutal family members, especially @RanvirShorey.

11.18 AM Why is marriage always seen in terms of business? Sad it is treated as a venture that should only bring profit. #Titli

11.19 AM #ShivaniRaghuvanshi plays a typical Delhi girl. She speaks her mind, doesn't give in to any pressure and confident in life. #Titli

11.21 AM This one sequence where #ShivaniRaghuvanshi witnesses how #Titli's family uses carjacking business will leave you numb. It is so brutal.

11.23 AM #Titli is also striking in the usage of score. Scenes look real with spiritual songs, strong coughs, gargles playing in the background.

11.25 AM .@RanvirShorey Scared of you now, seriously! Cuss words, violence and angst - all rolled into one character. #Titli

11.33 AM It's interval. #Titli sticks to its core concept - not a fun, escapist cinema. Expecting the same in the second half too.

11.35 AM .@RanvirShorey The manner in which you controlled your emotions while signing the divorce papers is brilliant. #Titli

11.45 AM Having a kid use cuss word, even though it is done unintentionally, only shows the impact that marital discord can leave on kids #Titli

12.03 PM The need for personal hygiene amongst #Titli and his family members is very well pitted against the grim world they live in.

12.05 PM Relationships in the world of #Titli are decayed, broken, dead, complex. Surviving them is a mammoth task. @KanuBehl shows this brilliantly

12.10 PM Desperate measures to earn money and reunite with one's lover is so painful. This also includes undergoing personal injury. #Titli

12.11 PM With every frame world of #Titli gets more scary, toxic, violent. Tranqulity doesn't exist here. @KanuBehl @RanvirShorey @Shashankaroraa

12.17 PM @RanvirShorey has given an outstanding performance in being both brutal, sensitive, and unpredictable. #Titli

12.20 PM Every actor in #Titli - Ranvir, Shashank, Lalit, Shivani - demands viewers' attention

12.30 PM.@KanuBehl's #Titli is engaging thanks to its plot, usage of failed relationships and aspirations, and powerful performance.

12.41 PM Thank you for staying with us throughout the tweet review of #Titli.
