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)

Bright film actress shines in Dev Anand film
20 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The film Main Solah Baras Ki stars Sabrina as a young aspiring actress who falls for the famous director Dev Anand (playing himself).

The film is not Dev Anand's best, but Sabrina really shines. She elevates it to a higher level. She is an actress with raw emotional talent. Refreshing to see someone who can be lost in the character. Hope to see more of her soon.

I was at the premiere in London years back, and remember seeing Sabrina wearing an amazing black dress. Very classy and an extravagant premiere, Even Prince Charles was there.

Sabrina, if you read this - good work! Keep it up
