KATHMANDU: Being a top Advocate, Mohit Puri (Rajat Kapoor) along with his wife often gets busy with his job spending most of their time abroad. This disheartens their only daughter 15-year-old Maahi (Sheena Shahabadi). A girl from a prosperous family but deprived of parental love and affection, this school girl enjoys the company of Kukko, (Ruslaan Mumtaz), a 17-year-old boy from a middle-class family.
Getting close to Kukko day-by-day, Maahi likes his company more than her parents. Eventually, on a New Year’s Eve the young couple gets intoxicated which has a serious consequence — she gets pregnant. Now, their story reaches a turning point as the adolescent couple has no other option but to elope as Maahi’s father is determined to get her to do an abortion in the US. Then, the story moves along with their struggle to live a life and get prepared to give birth to their child.
Though a fictitious story, the movie is more of a reflection of what is happening in society today as it depicts the subject of adolescent sexual behaviours. However, the way director Satish Kaushik has narrated the story doesn’t do justice to the theme of the movie. Tere Sang had the potential of being an interesting movie if the plot had been good and the editing better.
Ruslaan has given an okay performance, while Sheena’s work as a debutant is commendable. All the character actors — Rajat Kapoor, Nina Gupta, Satish Kaushik and Sushmita Mukherjee — are well known for their brilliant acting skills and they have yet again proven their talent. Though Anupam Kher has a special appearance, he has been able to leave a mark.
A young at heart movie with a message, Tere Sang can be equally interesting for adults as well.
