With a tagline like “A kidult Love Story” Teree Sang appears to travel the very oft untreaden path. And moresover, with a director like Satish Kaushik backing up the project, one’s expectations do get perked up automatically.
A film with a seemingly social message plot, based in contemporary times, Teree Sang dwelves into teenage love followed by pregnancy. How everyone, right from the teenage couple, their parents and everyone around handle & react to this is what the film is all about.
The film revolves around two teenagers Sheena Shahabadi & Ruslaan Mumtaz who after a one-night mistake have to brave umpteen hardships to convince their parents to let them have their baby. Glimpses of Kya Kehna there… The story is quite predictable & had lots of scope for drama. But the director makes it a light comedy and thus the lack in depth of emotions, which eventually transforms to the audience.
Since the film is based on a wafer thin plot, there is not much scope for it’s characters too which include big names like Anupam Kher, Rajat Kapoor, Neena Gupta & Satish Kaushik.. names which have proved their mettle in the past. The biggest problem with the film being that it cannot translate the love & helplessness of the people concerned onto the screen. The two protagonists though try their best to salvage the scene with their dose of cuteness unsuccessfully.
Editing is so haphazard that one doesn’t realise when some scenes start & when they end. Music is just about okay with More Saiyyan being liked by a few. Rest fall into below average category.
Overall, a film that can be safely put in the avoidable category.
