“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 ceremony, 11 days after a death.
