Quotes of celebrities:

Abhishek Chaubey - Hillarious, moving and strikingly original. The best time I've spent in a movie theatre this year!

Varun Grover - I think it's one of the most original voices in Indian cinema. It's like we keep talking about who will tell our story if we don't so it's that film which is telling our story in the most honest, rooted way. It's the story of any Indian village...you will see the characters are so alive and so honestly portrayed. IT just blew my mind when I saw it at MAMI. It's the most spiritual, it's funny also, it has drama, irony also and at the end of it, the story of Gowda, the Century guy... it's the most amazing genre-bending films I have seen in recent  times in Indian cinema.

Kalki Koechlin- Thithi is a sweet film, I wish I could understand Kannada, so I could get more of the jokes. It's such a well told simple story but very truthful.  Kalki tweeted about the film "A simple yet funny philosophical film by Raam Reddy"

Manav Kaul tweeted, "Thithi is delightful !! Please don't miss this beautiful film by Raam Reddy"
