Directed by Satish Kaushik
is a story which tackles the topic of lack of parental
love towards the children. It is a stark reality which
parents of teenagers do not realize. Today’s parents are
either busy with their business or profession – while
the children grow up without the love of their parents
around when they need them the most.
We have here a story about a 15 year old school girl who
misses her parents love. Maahi (Sheena) is the only
child of rich parents (Rajat Kapoor and Neena Gupta).
She has a dream home and whatever a schoolgirl can
desire. Yet, it isn’t she wants, but desires love and
attention from her parents. Her father spends the day on
his professional work thinking that he has sacrificed a
lot to give his daughter all the luxuries of life. But
he is wrong and all that his daughter is craving for is
her parents' presence and affection.
Shahabadi who plays Maahi Suri, the young 15-year-old
portrays well the anxiety a 15-year-old girl goes through.
Ruslaan Mumtaz as Kukoo her boyfriend is fine and so is
their fresh pair. Others in the film, Rajat Kapoor and
Neena Gupta as Maahi's parents, Satish Kaushik, and
Sushmita Mukherjee as Kukoo's parents have carried out
their parts very naturally.
Kauchik as an actor in this film has impressive moments
playing a rickshaw driver.
The combined effort of Pritam and Virag Mishra for
lyrics are just average so is the music by Sachin and
Jigar. Anu Malik and Bappi Lahari have also composed the
music. The songs are rendered by Shaan, Anmol Malik,
Master Salem, Raja Hasaan and Sumedha.
The movie has a young, adult feel and parents of
teenagers will learn a lot from this eye opening, yet
most common drift seen in present times. .

forms the rest of the film.
Tere Sang has
an impressive first half but post interval, the plot drags
with the cliché of the boy and girl trying to make ends
meet in their 'home in the mountains'. Haven’t we seen
that in numerous movies?
Even so, it is an honest attempt at addressing a very
