Directed by Mani Ratnam, Yuva follows three very different youngsters: idealistic student and aspiring politician Michael (Ajay Devgan); Arjun (Vivek Oberoi), who dreams of immigrating to the United States; and Lallan (Abhishek Bachchan) from the wrong side of the tracks. The three cross paths after an accident on a local bridge, and before any of them realize what has happened, they've embarked on a life-altering exchange of ideas, perspectives, and far-reaching life experiences. The film features Abhishek Bachchan, Ajay Devgan, Vivek Oberoi, Rani Mukherjee, Esha Deol, and Kareena Kapoor.

Critic Reviews for Yuva

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (2)

Spins a tripartite tale around familiar Bollywood obsessions, here reinfused with new life via clever use of a Pulp Fiction structure.

Mani Ratnam's Bollywood feature has a sharp political edge that is rare in Hindi-language films.

Offers a lot more substance in both content and performance than most films, regardless of the nation of origin; that it is a product of an industry known for candy floss fluff makes it all the more noteworthy.

The kind of juicy, overwrought narrative that was once a Hollywood staple.

Audience Reviews for Yuva


I think this movie was much longer than it needed to be. I did enjoy the intertwined stories of the 3 men this movie was about. The ending was a perfect resolution to the story.

One of my my most favorite Mani Ratnam Hindi films of all time. The casting was great and Abishek Bachchan's performance made us feel that his character was so damn realistic. The casting was great and the narration simply brilliant.

An awkward movie. The plot was missing the glue to bind its parts, but the acting was good. Rani and Abhishek won Filfare awards for this movie.
