One of the most striking movie ever made on Indian youth!
5 September 2006 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Wow! what was that!! this will come out from you once u watched this movie.Mani Ratnam has made a movie which will be a favorite for me 4evr!His control on the direction is simply superb and he has explored the true n real characters out of his star-cast.But my best character is Lallan played by Abhishek(hottest star in bollywood!).Perfect to bring out the brutal and wild shades in a negative role and its only after this role, he has got recognized by evry1.Kareena as the love interest of Arjun is looking too hot and her secret lies in her hair-style! (ok, i'm getting biased but i truly like her skin!)Another best part about this movie was its music.AR Rehman has done wonders in giving trance cum more hip music specially for the young listeners.The movie didn't do well in the box office as they just didn't publicized it well.Sad but true.Another sad part was the role played by Vivek as Arjun. From start till the end, he has got beaten up all the time!Any how,Yuva is one of the best Indian movies that I can proudly recommend it to any1. The linking of 3 diff parallel running stories at the end is the best part of this movie.Ratnam is agn doing a movie with Abhishek named 'Guru' and people who have seen the promos, r going gaga abt it!
