This one could be straight from the newspaper headlines.
In February this year, a 13-year-old girl in Italy was impregnated by her boyfriend and asked to abort the baby by the courts. The girl refused.
The sensational story bringing into global focus the question of teenage luv story and teenage mistakes by present youth .
Cast: Ruslaan Mumtaaz, Sheena Shahabadi, Satish Kaushsik, Rajat Kapoor, Sushmita Mukerjee, Neena Gupta, Anupam Kher
Director: Satish Kaushik
Fifteen year old Mahi (Sheena) is going to be a mommy, and seventeen year old Kukoo aka Kabir (Ruslaan) a daddy. The central idea has been stolen from ‘Juno’, bittersweet indie Hollywood hit about teenage pregnancy and parenthood and responsibility. If only Satish Kaushik had retained more of the honesty of the original, ‘Tere Sang’ would have been a revolutionary Hindi film.
In begning minutes of movie we see that the first pair of teenage indian kids(or may be call youth)who have make physical relation with the girl pushing( maaahi the actoress wants to realize of this experience so she push kabir to do this) and boy pulling.
maahi the actoress searching a love because she gets no attention from her ever-busy parents.so thats why she makes friendship with kabir(kuku) and try to see her desires love in kabir.
so after doing the mistakes(physical relation) kabir takes resposibility of maahi as a adult man and thinking for abortion of maahi. But maahi decides to give up birth to child.The parents are against them, so the only option to run away from home .
At the same time kabir and maahi leave their schools and turns towards home planning as a resposible indian married couples( like mom dad).
And the angry man mr.rajat kapoor( mahhi's daddy) a higher approach advocate charged on kabir as a teenage rapiest and kidnapper .
but in the end of movie there is a sensefull debating condition in court and mahhi's dady takes off all charges from kabir . by saying this" ye sab meri galti hai ki...maine maahi ko pyar nahi diya..jo use dena chahiye tha". And also anupam kher playing a as usual fantastic perforance in judge charactor.
its giving really a nice social message to our indian youths.
