A group of youngsters decides to contribute towards water conservation in a drought-hit area.
For a topical movie like this, a well-timed release plays a very important role in pulling audience to the theatres. 'Youth' has two strong factors; its young cast for a fabulous youth connect and a theme revolving around the need of water conservation. Sadly, both factors are nullified by the way the film progresses.
Yuvraj aka Yuva (Waghmare) is the son of a politician while Yutika (Mahajan) is the activist of the gang of friends which also includes Uday aka Bunty (Mhatre), Twisha (Joshi), Harsh (Shashank Jadhav) and Oudy (Ketaki Narayan). On a trip to Goa, the youngsters come across a village that hasn't seen rain in a long time and where fights over water are common. Feeling bad for the villagers, Yuva calls up his father (Gokhale), narrates the situation and asks him to help the drought-hit area. His father announces a scheme but as expected, politics takes over moral responsibility and the sanctioned funds never reach the villagers. On their way back from the trip, Yutika insists they go to check on the villagers once more and upon seeing the situation, the youngsters decide to take matters in their hands.
This is one of those films that you lose track of the moment you hear the ideal and principled protagonists announcing ambitious dreams. Perhaps the filmmaker wanted this to be the 'Rang De Basanti' of Marathi cinema but himself lost track of what was to be made, midway. The result: A dumbfounding mix of romance, social responsibility, politics and morals. Of course, all these can be weaved properly; RDB was a good example of that, but not this film.
The plot jumps from water conservation to romance so abruptly that one is left thinking 'what just happened'. And this is a question you will find asking yourselves way too many times throughout the film.
The young bunch of actors is not exactly a treat to watch but some of them show a spark. Veterans Gokhale and Pulekar are wasted only to add certain 'star-value' but they still stand out in the film.
'Youth' is a good subject coupled with bad execution. Watch it if you really have to.
