Review Summary: Youngistaan promises to be a youth-centric pro-change film but its promises are as shallow and superficial as the ones made by many of our real life politicians. Waste of a great opportunity

You have to hand it to this film for making an effort to be 'headline-ish' without toppling over with the temperament of topicality. This is a genre that Bollywood never really explored so far. Unlike Prakash Jha's Raajneeti, Youngistaan doesn't take itse

What happens when essentially a btown romancer gets doped in a phony political premise of hope.. its  neither bad nor unwatchable, but nevertheless it's a disappointment to see how b-town escapisms fail to rise to a potential cinematic high with the challenge of having politics as the backdrop of your script but ending up just as a sweet vote taking ceremony which our real life politicians take but never fulfill..

But as a person with a positive outlook, a film that surpasses all expectations from the father-son duo is something that we eagerly await

Youngistaan could have become the cinematic political anthem in this election season and the premise gave all the opportunity but unfortunately it's so dreamy like having a utopian state in reality or a Taj Mahal once again.
