Unfortunately YUVA is high on hype but low on substance...
Bollywood Hungama
Disappointment, like all human emotion, is relative -- the greater the expectation aroused in you, the greater the corresponding sense of letdown.

Your opinion of A R Rahman's music notwithstanding, everything he does these days is hailed as a blockbuster.

A macho hero Karthik (who is somewhat like Vishal of Tamil) with expertise in Karate ala Shanker Nag of Kannada cinema has arrived in family packed action drama 'Yuva'. Director Narendra Babu with two of his film 'O Gulabiye' and 'Pallaki' doing fairly well in the box office is now caught up with the cinema for the masses. The attention he gathers right from the first scene of the film is superb. Action that looks real with Karate exponent Karthik is mind blowing. The song, dance and family drama here and there plus splendid cinematography make this film 'Yuva' worth watching.
India Glitz
First half of the film is good. The second half of the _x000D_ film appears too slow. The climax of the film might _x000D_ appear very abrupt. The raw-level narration of 'Madhavan-Meera _x000D_ Jasmine' chapter might not go well with the viewers. _x000D_ The 'Surya-Isha Deol' chapter is inspiring. The 'Siddardh-Trisha' _x000D_ chapter appeals to the youth. The plus points of the _x000D_ film are direction (Mani Rathnam), music (AR Rehman), _x000D_ characterizations (of Surya, Siddardha, Bharati Raja, _x000D_ Trisha and Isha deol). The negative points are unglamorous _x000D_ and stretched part of interludes between Madhavan and _x000D_ Meera Jasmine, lack of popular elements, Madras backdrop _x000D_ and Tamil lead actors. This film has the chances of _x000D_ doing well in A centers. The run in B and C centers _x000D_ is doubtful. 'Yuva' is a must watch film for all Mani _x000D_ Rathnam's movie lovers.
