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. ...

Fantastic& Genuine Rendition. An Epitome Of Coming-Of-Age Flicks. ♦ 65%
18 August 2013 | by See all my reviews

Sixteen is a movie every teenager should watch & this is not like an advice but education. It talks everything about the age & it talks bold.

With newbies doing fantastic work with whatever was given to them, it talks about the lives of few classmates who have just entered adolescence. Their wild escapades, sensitive talks & everything related to it. The love factor, relationships, sex & the generation - Sixteen has everything in large amounts in it. The plot has lots of references of which many make sense. Some elements are hackneyed thus giving us some unanswered questions. Although, the characters are so nicely baked by the writers, they pull certain topics with finesse. All the factors introduced are handled properly giving a wonderful conclusion.

Screenplay is fine but editing & cinematography is awful. And that doesn't stop the viewer from enjoying the thrills, shakes & reality inculcated into the story. The grave reality in the second half is truly enduring. a 6.5 out of 10 for this amazing effort.

BOTTOM LINE: One of the best & meaningful films of 2013, in spite of its boldness. A must watch! Highly recommended, if you are ready to compromise with the film factors.
