Painted in the colors of life, Yuva is the hard-edged epic of interconnected lives in a mean urban backdrop. These interconnected lives are unfurled vividly for all to see, then, quickly merged back into their picturesque miseries. A stylish trick of story telling that only masterful craftsmen like Mani Ratnam is capable of conjuring up.
Mani Ratnam used a rather trendy technique of boomerang narration in Sakhi with good effect. You takeoff at a point, get slung to a distance covering the prelude of events, then comeback to the point where it all started.
