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.
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.
