Two observations before I 'dissect' Teree Sang...
1. One, it's often said that veterans find it extremely difficult to change with times, adapt to new-age cinema.
2. Two, it's often said that a capable director has the potential to unearth new talent and polish their skills.
The two observations hold true for Satish Kaushik, who's known for dramatic/masala entertainers and who changes gears so swiftly with Teree Sang.
Now let's begin... First and foremost, Teree Sang is not Juno. The resemblance starts and ends with an adolescent getting pregnant. Teree Sang is not Kya Kehna either. Teree Sang mirrors what's happening in society vividly. But, at the same time, it's not dark or disturbing, nor does it get preachy. But there're minor issues. Certain portions make this real story look filmy and that robs the film of its freshness. It becomes another BOBBY and LOVE STORY at one point. More on that later! Yet, all said and done, Teree Sang is fresh and engrossing in most parts.
