Storyline

When Bollywood megastar Dev Anand makes an announcement he is on the look-out for a female lead in his forthcoming Hindi movie, many Indian women and men all over the world wait with bated breath to see who the lucky woman was going to be. Dev did not find anyone in India, so he decided to tour the U.K., and meets with beautiful Tina, who he casts in his next film. While meeting Tina, he also meets 16 year old Madhu Mehra in U.K., who also wants to act in his movie called "Main Solah Baras Ki". The common thing between them is that both share the same birth date (the year is different); Dev likes Madhu, while Madhu loves Dev, and will do anything to make him notice her as a woman, not as a teen. The question is whether this veteran actor can decide to hold onto his own, while this charming teenager turns on her charm on him. Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Sabrina (Shaista Usta) is an awesome actress.
5 June 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I love Main Solah Baras Ki. I'm really impressed that Sabrina (Shaista Usta) is a first non-Indian actress (that I know of) that worked on a Bollywood film. What's more impressive is that she's Turkish-American and was able to master Hindi, a very difficult language. I can't wait to see her performance in her first American (Hollywood) film, "Betrayal of Innocence". I want to see her in more Hollywood and Bollywood films. I think she would do a great job in classic movies like "Gladiator", "Brave Heart", "Alexander" and "Amelie". I feel that she has the looks of a classic Madonna, the spunk of Angelina Jolie, and the sweetness of the French actress Audrey Tautou. I feel that she is a budding star and that she has a potential to receive an Oscar. "Believe me."
