Verdict : Youth should watch this Film _____________________________________________________________________________________
Youngistaan is a film directed by Syed Ahmad Afzal and produced by Vashu Bhagnani. It stars Jackky Bhagnani, Neha Sharma, Farooq Sheikh and Kayoze Irani in lead roles. The film is a love story set against the backdrop of Indian politics. this film has hit the theatres today, So let see how it is.
It is a love story with politics at the centre of it. In a way, politics is the conflict between two lovers. Abhimanyu (Jacky Bhagnani) and Anvita ( Neha Sharma) are happily ‘living in’ for the past three years in Japan. Abhimanyu is a game developer. They drink together, they puke together. Until, Abhimanyu’s father (Boman Irani) drops dead. He also happens to be the prime minster of India. Abhimanyu reluctantly becomes the youngest prime minister of India (28 year old). The film is about how he traverses the political path while trying to keep his love life intact.
Youngistaan seems to be inspired from the time when Rajiv Gandhi became the Prime Minister of India, after the death of Indira Gandhi. This scenario has been portrayed well in the film.
Speaking of performances, Jackky Bhagnani has surely grown as an actor, and this is evident with his excellent performance in the movie. Neha Sharma looks beautiful and has lent full support to Jackky.
Rest of the cast is good. As usual, Boman Irani is at his best. The highlight of the film is to see Farooque Shaikh in an extremely calm and composed performance. His presence in the film just lights up the frame.
Negative Points: -
Being a Vashu Bhagnani film, Youngistaan has a set-up that is larger than life. The problem with the story is that, it shows the political scenario of the country, which the Indian audiences are used to seeing everyday, in a more fictional way.
Though Jackky does his best in his role, a matured actor would have done more justice to the role. A few parts of the film are predictable.
As it was quite evident before the release as well, the songs of the movie are wonderful. Each and every track has been placed perfectly in the screenplay. ‘Suno Na Sangemarmar’ is the best of the lot and stays in your minds.
Screenplay of the film couldn’t create or develop curiosity to keep the viewers glued to their seats. The dialogues are fine and editing is sharp. Cinematography is top-notch.
Director Syed Ahmad Afzal has done a fair job with his direction. But the problem lies with the subject, which is not new to the audience.
