CAST AND CREW
Director : Gautham Menon
Producer : C. Kalyan
Music Director : Ilaiyaraaja
Starring : Nani, Samantha
Varun (Nani) and Nithya (Samantha) are portrayed in this film right from their school days until their adult lives. They keep up a good friendship during their school days. When Varun enters college, he meets Nithya in a college cultural programme. Both fall in love. During their love journey, they often break up over minor issues. But deep down, they are so madly in love that they give each other another chance quite often.
The story of YVM traces these breakups and patch-ups. Career, family commitments, selfishness, ego and other human emotions play their roles in shaping up this journey. Towards the very end, Varun and Nithya are faced with the prospect of going their separate ways permanently.
Samantha is gorgeous and the real star of the movie, without whom this film will not work. She has portrayed the three different stages of her life – sweet school student, charming college girl, vulnerable social worker – she has done good justice to her roles. Her performance in the dying stages of the movie is simply superb.
Nani too has done his part very well and has proved once again that he is a good performer. Even though his performance is true-to-life and convincing, he is surely eclipsed by Samantha.
Krishnudu as Prakash is good in a supporting role.
Cinematography is surprisingly average for a Gautham Menon film.
Ilayaraja’s songs and background score give the film a very romantic mood. His background score perfectly suits the mood of scenes.
Romance King Gautham Menon has succeeded in showcasing Samantha extremely beautifully.
Ilaiyaraaja’s music and background score are excellent. There are a few warm romantic moments in the film, especially in the first 30 minutes. The biggest issue with the film is it is an extremely slow-paced movie.
Samantha’s gorgeous looks and brilliant performance are big assets for the movie. All credits should go to director for showcasing her beautiful characterization.
Overall, the film is youthful and lovely.
