Bharath, Rima Kallingal, Santhanam, Sampath
Yuvan Yuvathi in one word is a bore! The film drags big time and does not have a story to say. GNR Kumaravel and his cameraman have made picture post card scintillating shots of Seychelles that can pass of as a tourism documentary.
The story has been etched from various candyfloss romantic Bollywood films from the Yash Chopra/Karan Johar school of synthetic filmmaking that it's hard to tell if there's anything original to this story at all!
Rich and sophisticated Kathirvel Murugan (Bharath) aka Kathir is an IT professional working in Chennai. His father Sevaga Pandian(Sampath) is a ruthless money lender and local leader in Uslampatti. The boy hates to be known as a ?country bumpkin? and wants to immigrate to US.
Kathir bumps into Nisha (Rima Kallingal) at the US consulate in Chennai while waiting to get his visa stamped. They start of as enemies but soon become friends ?thanks to the machinations? of Kathir?s roommate Sakkarai (Santhanam).
Kathir, now deeply in love with Nisha tries to dodge his father who has fixed a High Court Judge?s daughter as his future wife! Soon Kathir is shocked to learn that Nisha too is going to US to get married, leading to the twist in the story.
The characters are all over the top with Sampath taking the cake. He hams loudly and plays villain till the climax, where he has a change of heart! Bharath fits in perfectly in to the candy floss romance, but the script lets him down. Rima is better off doing Malayalam films.
What saves this film from complete disappointment is Santhanam and his antics. He is a scream, especially his drunken act and also when he looks at the camera and says- ?I?am expected to be there till the end titles roll!? Comedy scenes of Santhanam, Krishna and Sathyan are the only relief in a film where composer Vijay Antony is not in good form.
Verdict- Big Bore
Time pass comedy entertainer
Average comedy entertainer
Decent rural family entertainer
Soubin Shahir and Mamta Mohandas shine in this conventional film
