Storyline

Welcome to sixteen's world. A world where growing up has speeded up multifold times from the time you and me were kids. Once upon a time, it was the age of innocence, the age of sweetness, the age when one had the first crush. But times have changed. In the times of Internet, Delhi times and page-3 and more than 300 Tv channels, innocence is the first casualty. Sixteen is a story about lost innocence and teenage heartache in urban India. Meet Anu - Young, intelligent, good looking, sensitive, ambitious. Brash, bold with lots of attitude. She's almost a woman now. In the way she dresses, in the way she approaches life. She is aware of the effect she has on the men around her. She has been through breakups (note the plural), has flings and wants to be the Miss India. So that she can one day rule the glamour world. Meet Tanisha- In search of love, withdrawing at the slightest notice of an imperfection, Tanisha is gutsy, but more rooted. Going on a blind date is not a problem with her. ...

Brave attempt though could have been better
21 August 2013 | by (India) – See all my reviews

With advance technologies and internet awareness, teenagers of next generation have turned matured-much-before-their-age. Many movies like hilarious Rockford , solid father-son drama Udaan or the recent fun-loving Gippi focuses on the school life, friends, love , education , crushes etc. Sixteen goes one step ahead and dwells with issues teenagers are facing now days only if it could have been handled sensitively.

Sixteen tells the coming-of-age story of 4 friends - Tanisha who is love with a guy twice her age because she is unable to find right guy of her age , Anu wants to loose her virginity to her careless good-for-nothing boyfriend, Nidhi is bold and beautiful who wants to make it big to the modelling world and Ashwin who is dominated by his father to become an IAS officer.

Sixteen is a brave attempt by the first time director Raj Purohit and concept is handled with aplomb. However , it is the writing and editing that falters and at time , you will feel like being dragged along. Screenplay is loose which makes it worst. Despite these shortcomings , Sixxteen is supported by power-packed performances by all 4 leading protagonist.

Overall , Sixteen is genuine attempt which could be watched once. Better screenplay and marketing could have helped the movie. Decent 2.5/5
