User Reviews

Universal story of friendship, love and redemption.
24 May 2014 | by neenasuniverseSee all my reviews

Purani Jeans is an effervescent tale of youthful exuberance, coming of age and eternal friendships. The story about "friends forever", triggers nostalgia and fond memories of one's wonder years and evokes a sense of déjà-vu. In the quagmire of nonsensical no-brainers copied and rehashed shamelessly from Hollywood/Korea/Tollywood/(and even Bollywood!), Purani Jeans, a completely original script, comes as a breath of fresh air. The director, ad film maker Tanushri Chattrji Bassu, in her first foray into feature films, skilfully handles the eternal and forever fresh theme of first love, teen angst, volatile emotions & misunderstandings and, timeless friendships. Tanushri skillfully weaves the idea that, "real friendship, like an old pair of jeans, allows the wearer to become totally free", into the central plot of the film. The story, moving through the 90's into the present, revolves around a group of five school friends at Kasauli, led by maverick Sam and reticent Sid, who is the protagonist of the film. The group, who call themselves "Kasauli Cowboys", are a happy-go-lucky bunch, who drift apart when first love awakens. What creates the rifts and changes the dynamics of their friendships, the lessons they learn over time, and the new bonds that form, are the essence of Purani Jeans. The songs, composed by Ram Sampath, are melodious, memorable and hummable. Dil aajkal (by both KK and Sona), yaari yaari and ye dosti leave one with pleasant feelings. The scenic locations of Kasauli were beautifully captured on film. Sarika, in a Maharani Gayatri-esque complex role, and debutant Aditya Seal as Sam excel in their roles. Isabel Leite, as a Kashmiri girl, looks stunning. Tanuj Virwani as Sid, appears in his second film. Rati Agnihotri reminds one of thespian Pearl Padamsee. Rajit Kapoor in a cameo is excellent. Sadly, the film has not been publicised in smaller cities. It is a film set in a small town, and should have been well promoted. I got to see this film by chance at Raipur, where I didn't see any hoardings. Debutante director Tanushri Chattrji Bassu needs to tell more such original and thought- provoking stories. My best wishes to her. I strongly recommend Purani Jeans to all those who have tasted the bitter-sweet fruits of first love and yaari-dosti.
