Romance and Tamil cinema always goes hand in hand. If there is one genre that never fails at the box office, then it should be romance. Chocolate hero Bharath, who played a critically acclaimed role in Vaanam, is back with director GNR’s Yuvan Yuvathi. The film was recently in the headlines for grabbing a clean U certificate from the censor board without any cuts. The script, written by S. Ramakrishnan, has equal doses of love and humour. Yuvan Yuvathi will also mark the Kollywood debut of Rima, a popular star in Mollywood. The film also has Santhanam in an important major role.
Yuvan Yuvathi narrates the relationship between father (Sampath) and son (Bharath). Bharath plays the role of a modern guy working in a corporate setting. It’s a tale of two lovebirds working in a corporate setup. Earlier in an interview the director assured that the sizzling chemistry between the lead pair will create wonders on screen. So here we take a look at the plot of Yuvan Yuvathi.
Kathir aka Kathiresan (Bharath), is an IT graduate who works for a leading MNC in Tidel Park. Like many youngsters, his main goal in life is to settle down in US. Reason? His father (Sampath), an arrogant villager from Usalampathi is behind him with a marriage alliance. Kathir’s father is the local zamindar of the village and he hates love marriages. He infact goes to the extent of killing a young man for marrying the girl he loves. To escape from his father and the arrogant behaviors of the his relative, Kathir plans to go to US secretly. Kathir’s good friend and roommate Sakkara (Santhanam) helps him in all his good and bad deeds.
One day Kathir meets Nisha (Rima) at the US Consulate and like any other love story they end up fighting with each other. Meanwhile Nisha looses her passport and blames it on Kathir’s bad luck. After a series of incidents, Kathir helps Nisha to get a new passport and he slowly falls in love with her. Later Kathir and Nisha applies together for US visa and they gets it. A day before their journey Nisha reveals that she is going to get married in US soon. Kathir is heartbroken!
Twist comes in the form of Kathir’s father who misunderstand that Nisha is his son’s girlfriend and decides to kidnap her. At the right time Kathir reaches the spot, saves Nisha but her marriage gets canceled.
The story takes a leap of ten months! At Seychelles Island Kathir is now working as a project manager, none of his family members knows about his whereabouts. There he suddenly meets Nisha, who works in a hospital! What will happen next? Watch out for Yuvan Yuvathi!
Bharath looks stylish on screen and does his part very well. But we would expect him to see in more author backed roles like Veyil and Vaanam. As usual his dancing skills is one of his biggest asset. Rima Kallingal, who made her on screen debut with Shyamprasad’s Ritu, looks beautiful on screen. She does her part very well and sends out a clear message that she is here to stay. Santhanam’s comedy one liners impresses in bits and pieces. Sampath is one of the major highlight of the film. He excels as an arrogant father! Anuja Iyer and Shakthi makes a special appearance towards the end of the film.
Director G.N.R. Kumaravelu, who has cranked the camera for Ninaithale Innikum, has come out with a feel good entertainer. However couples of songs and few scenes could have been deleted to increase the pace of the film. Music by Vijay Anthony is good with the songs ‘Oh My Angel’ and ‘Kola Kuthu’ standing out. Camera works by Jagadeswaran is classy and sophisticated. The beauty of the Islands are rightly captured on Jagadeswaran’s lens. But G.K. Prabhkar’s editing could have been better!
Overall Yuvan Yuvathi is another feel good entertainer!
