Vijay’s sob love story continues with Youth. The one-line story is that Vijay falls in love with a poor little rich girl. It is a one sided love till the climax, when everything falls in place for the hero to marry the girl. To call the venture a disaster would be an understatement. There is no basic storyline or a coherent plot in the film. Vijay preaches to the youth of today that if a girl is friendly with a boy she has to have love in her heart, nothing less than that.
Shiva (Vijay) is a villager who has a degree in Home Science and has also done a catering course which make him a Samayalkaran (cook). Shiva’s cousin (Sindhu Menon) runs away from home on her wedding day , as she does not want to marry a cook! The hero then goes to the town in search of a job. He stays with his unemployed friends (Vivek & Co) in a huge bungalow that even has a swimming pool! While hunting for a job, Shiva saves an American returned Sandhya (Sandhya) from a group of thugs. The country bumpkin mistakes her good intentions of thanking him for saving her as ‘love’! The ‘cook’ finally tells the heroine about his love on her engagement day with a guy, who is after her wealth. But in the climax she is convinced about the hero`s love for her and marries him.
The film is a heartless love story, which is far from entertaining. And post interval, despite interesting moments, the audience fall into deep slumber. Throughout the film the audience cannot empathise either with Vijay’s obsessive love or Sandhya’s ‘good friend’ attitude. Sandhya’s shrill debut is hardly the stuff that could make a newcomer proud. Vivek& Co, can you please stop repeating those sleep inducing comedy track in film after film? Don’t look for any solace from Mani Sharma’s music either, as all the tracks are repetitive. Vincent Selva’s inept direction and lacklustre performance from the lead cast make Youth a flick that one would recommend only to sworn enemies.
