Review of the film Yuvvraaj

Review of the film Yuvvraaj.

Showman Subhash Ghai had always experimented with new and fresh subjects all along his career and viewers have a lot of questions about his new venture titled Yuvraaj. Subhash Ghai’s films in the last few have not done as well as his films in the 80s and 90s like Karz, Karma, Saudagar, Taal, etc. So he himself is also looking forward to Yuvvraaj to bring him back to the limelight.

The film is related to the story of a fragmented family including Salman Khan, Anil Kapoor and Zayed Khan who had been shown to be engaged in different types of games which are designed to inherit the property of their father. Everyone of them wanted to be rockstar and never cared about the fact whether they possessed the requisite skills to fulfill the goals.

Before the release of the film, the music of the film had been promoted by Subhash Ghai as usual. For the first time Subhash Ghai had worked with Gulzar and AR Rehman who had created their recognition a long time ago. Each and every song in the film had meaningful composition, realistic picturisation and adequate lyrics.
The main songs in the film include “tu meri dost hai” sung by Benny Dayal, Shreya Ghoshal and AR Rehman, “shanno shanno” sung by Sonu Nigam, Srinivas and others, “tu muskura” sung by Alka Yagnik and Javed Ali, “mastam mastam” sung by Sonu Nigam, Alka Yagnik , Benny Dayal and others, “zindagi” sung by Srinivas, “dil ka rishta” sung by Sonu Nigam, Roop Kumar Rathod, AR Rehman and others and “manmohiny morey” sung by Vijay Prakash and few other songs.

The songs had soft, sweet, romantic passion embedded in them and the strong lips by Salman Khan, Anil Kapoor and Katrina Kaif in most of them had created added attraction for the viewers. Whether or not the film ultimately becomes successful, there is no shadow of doubt that the music is going to create lasting impact in the minds of the viewers and listeners.

The other interesting part of the film involves the romantic relationship of Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif in the film. There had been lot of rumour about the romantic relationship between the two stars which never ended in marriage and had always been a subject of controversy. Last year when Abhishek Bacchan and Aishwarya Rai acted together in the film Guru, the stories relating to their engagement became public and that helped in the additional viewership of the film as they got married together.

Even if such a thing does not happen, there is lot of interest amongst the viewers about the onscreen chemistry of Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif who featured together in Maine Pyar Kyun Kiya and Partner before. Katrina Kaif had a dream run in the last two years with success in films ranging from Maine Pyar Kyun Kiya to Namaste London, to Welcome, to Partner, to Race, to Singh is Kinng and now Yuvvraaj. If Yuvraaj fails it will be the first failure of Katrina Kaif in the last two years.

So taking the star cast into consideration, the strong music composed by AR Rehman and Gulzar, the romantic picturisation of songs by Subhash Ghai, it is expected that the film is going to bring smiles in the face of the distributors and benefit the bollywood industry with one of the greatest hits of the year. Let us hope for the best.
