Being the only child, Pari is surrounded by gadgets- as gadgets fill the vacuum of having a lonely childhood.

Maanvi Gagroo: Rakhi Chadda

Rakhi's cheerfulness and lovable nature makes her the true friend amongst the four. She is the peacemaker among the four who is referred as the 'tomboy'.
Anchal Sabharwal: Sanya Balsara
Self obsessed, jolly, smiling, opinionated. Sanya is Pari's confidante. She is brazenly loyal to Pari. She is beauty conscious but aimless when it comes to her future. She wants time to stop at this moment so she is left to being with friends- she is not interested in taking up the responsibilities that comes with growing up. Her desire is to fly to Paris first class. She is referred as 'the follower'.
Aamras 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.
All four have no secrets among themselves. They support one another in all their endeavors - good or bad - they have promised to remain friends forever with no sorrys and no thank yous as their 'mantra'. These friends will do just about anything to keep their friendship going.
The film's USP lies in its subject which has hitherto rarely been dealt with.
Aamras will make one remember what it was like to have friends when you were a 17 year old and it makes you glad that they were there when they were.
