Recall those years when you were growing up. When you were in your teens. When you just stepped out of school. When you were learning to take independent decisions. When you were waiting to explore a whole new world... The images may be blur, but the flashes from the past should bring a smile on your face. Writer-director Rupali Guha tries to capture those years on celluloid in Aamras.
The concept is interesting, but the writing appeals in bits and spurts. It holds your attention at times, since the goings-on look believable. But the film takes a filmi route in its second hour and that robs the film of its freshness. Final verdict? This Aamras is just about okay!
Aamras is a coming of age youth film about friendship among four friends [all aged between 17-18 years], urban school girls - Jiya, Pari, Rakhi and Sanya. All four are very close and come from varied background, attending one of the most prestigious schools in Mumbai.
