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. Going on a second date is. Meet Nidhi- Traces of innocence and a whole lot of sweetness, still in the throes of first love, full of dreams. Unlike the cynical Anu and the practical Tanisha, she makes you want to be sixteen again, experience all that was good with those days. Meet Ashwin- An introverted and completely lacking in confidence. Tanisha's classmate, best friend and silent lover, his life is overshadowed by a dominating and violent father who would leave nothing to make him an IAS officer. Sixteen captures the life of these teens, as they go through their loves and heartaches, dreams and destructions in their school, home and the outside world. Sixteen is the story of their friendship and turbulent route it takes through the growing up years. And also about the adults around them who make, unmake and remake their world, sometimes brutally, sometimes beautifully. Sixteen is a wickedly funny film. It makes you laugh even as it tells you disquieting truths about your kids. It sucks you into their deep, dark world of sassy, saucy, sexy, highly informed, intelligent, aggressive, go getter kids with hearts that are still tender and looking for love and meaning. And you will never see your kids the same way ever again.
