In the badlands of Delhi's underbelly, Titli, the youngest member of a violent car-jacking brotherhood, plots a desperate bid to escape the 'family' business. His schemes are thwarted by his unruly brothers, who marry him off against his will. But titli finds an unlikely ally in his new wife, Neelu, who nurtures her own frustrated dreams. They form a strange, mutually exploitative pact to break the stranglehold of their family roots. But is escape the same as freedom? As a producer Iâ€™m interested in giving birth to a lm thatâ€™s dicult to give birth to, because itâ€™s the dicult child that does something which history remembers. Itâ€™s very tough to survive in the commercial or semi-commercial context in the Indian lm industry by making lms that are dissenting in nature. But thatâ€™s what I want to do - to make lms that rebel, which shake up, provoke and turn a very hard light into the dark spaces of our society. Titli meets that criterion quite well. Titli has raw & searing honesty - something deeply truthful that caught me instantly. Many rst time lmmakers on their 1st lm want to tickle the audienceâ€™s balls, they do something and get by. Kanu decided not to get by. He decided that heâ€™ d rather have this obscure lm seen by 3 people, rather than try and be many things to many people. That militancy of sticking to his demons is what has made this one of the most fascinating debut lms of Indian cinema in a long-long time.
