Story: Yogendra Yuvvraaj Singh lives a wealthy lifestyle along with 3 sons, Gyanesh – who is mentally unstable; Deven – a bully and slacker; and Danny – a Casanova. While he does tolerate Danny, he asks Deven to leave when the later assaults Gyanesh. Deven re-locates to Austria, meets with Anushka Banton, and both fall in love much to the chagrin of her dad, Dr. P.K. Banton, who wants her to wed, Daniel Mehta. When Yogendra suddenly passes away, Deven returns home to find that the household is run by his maternal uncle, Om Prakash, and his family. The family will soon find out through Advocate Sikander Mirza that the majority of the wealth and estate will be inherited by Gyanesh -leading to a conspiracy between both Deven and Danny – to try and befriend Gyanesh, and then compel him to share the estate equally between the three.Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)  


Synopsis: A Child wants love, a man wants money ` Eventually one yearns love!!!

Subhash Ghai tells a uniqe tale spin of our times narrated through musicyuvvraaj a story of the attitudes of youngsters today as they prioritize money and life style over value of relationships.

Set in Europe in modern times, its about the three sons of a billionaire father brought up in three different environments, their individual personalities, their passion and aggression to fulfill their aspirations. The three sons are played by Salman Khan, Anil Kapoor and Zayed Khan.

Deven Yuvraaj [Salman Khan] needs money to get his billionaire beloved – a beauty queen, played by Katrina Kaif.

Gyanesh [Anil Kapoor] is yet to realize the colour of money but gets caught in the web of money.

Danny [Zayed Khan] breaths nothing but money, the only power he knows.

Anushka [Katrina Kaif] has passion for music and obsession for an earthy man Deven and plays the catalyst through her music in this family drama in which you laugh, cry, sing and dance.

    I don't know what has happened to Subhash Ghai. You cant believe thathe is the same guy who made movies like Karz, Khalnayak, Ram Lakhan andTaal. The thing that was good about the movie was Salman Khan's acting.This is the first movie after Tere Naam where he was not Salman Khanand he was the character that he was playing. However he started as hisoveracting self but mellowed down as the movie progressed. Onething….. Zayed Khan can't act. There are so many technical flaws inthe movie. Anil Kapoor is suffering from Autism and still he manages tounderstand emotions and speak such deep dialogs like he did in themovie. I guess Subhash Ghai needs to look up the meaning of autismfirst.

    Salman Khan is a chorus singer who is not rich… yet he owns aconvertible, a sports bike and a big house.

    I mean OK it is a movie….. directors are allowed some slack but notthis.

    The villains Anjan Srivastava and his daughter in law irritating at alltimes and they could have been scripted better.

    In all a bad movie and I feel I wasted my money.

    Veteran director Subhash Ghai is hoping to resurrect some of thecredibility he lost with his previous flops Yaadein & Kisna with thisglossy drama. I never really intended to see it when I heard about itbecause Katrina Kaif is in it and all of her films suck (except Race).But the promos was so good and I loved the music especially the Dostsong composed by the best music composer & lyrics writer combo A RRehman and Gulzar. So I seen it anyway and its about Yuvvraaj (Prince)who gets thrown out of his family. He wants to get married to thisreally rich girl but her father wants her to marry someone else. So hesigns a contract with him that in 40 days, he will become twice as richas him. He eventually gets closer to one of his brothers and realisesthat he is happy to help him without wanting anything.

    The story & screenplay is o.k. but it's quite long for a 2.5 hour moviebecause their wasn't enough to make it that long. None of the actorsacted well except Anil Kapoor and Katrina Kaif was simply the worst,she is completely crap. Neither she knows acting, language (her voiceis always dubbed for her), dance and always fails to impress. I do notlike her one bit and if she was replaced by someone else then thatwould've helped a lot. The film had big sets that were so good andvisually impressive that they keep you in your seat throughout. Overallif you have nothing to do on a rainy day or something then watch it butYuvvraaj is nothing to look forward to.

    This was an absolute disaster, and almost painful to sit through. Theonly thing the film has going for it are fabulous European locationsand grand sets. Otherwise, bad acting abounds, with the main culpritsbeing Salman and Katrina. Some of the dialog is ludicrous ("a hard-coreanti-family man!!"), and unfortunately uttered with a straight face.Boman Irani is wasted in a clichéd role. Anil Kapoor has some energybut is sidelined for long periods of time. The plot line is incoherentand makes little sense. Quite frankly, the film is a complete waste oftime.

    Overall 1/10

    As a big fan of Subhash Ghai, I remember almost 20 years back, buyingticket for the first show of "Ram Lakhan" at double the price and thensitting in a packed houseful show with people whistling, dancing andclapping on every scene and song. And now comes a day when I easily geta ticket for the first show of "Yuvraaj" from the window itself andbecome a part of few people watching the movie in the theater. There isno excitement in any viewer, no whistles or claps and no dancing aroundthe screen.

    Surely times have changed a lot, and surprisingly "Subhash Ghai Sir"has also changed his style of film-making. But the sad part is that thechange of style is not coming up good enough for the viewers. Aswitnessed in his last few movies, "Yuvraaj" too has its merits butfalls short of the expectations from the famous "Showman" of Bollywood.The discouraging opening response must be due to the unimpressive andconfusing promos which were not able to explain what the movie was.Even Salman and Anil looked puzzled in their acts in the on air promos.

    Coming to the movie itself, it starts off with Salman, Katrina andBoman Irani (as Katrina's father) with their love story angle. 50minutes into the movie and the same goes on & on with no sign of Aniland Zayed. This makes the viewer restless as it is too lengthy andshould have been trimmed heavily. Then with the news of Salman's richfather dying the story moves on and the other two brothers of Salmanare introduced, Anil Kapoor & Zayed Khan. After every one is there onthe screen the story goes into the "Jaydaad" & inheritors drama with atwist in the form of autistic Anil Kapoor.

    The locations are fresh, sets are huge, songs are shot lavishly, butnothing hits the right note. Everyone looks playing his part knowinglythat something is wrong and not working. There are very few scenes towatch out for and it all seems to be too lengthy and repetitive. Themost lacking part is the story and screenplay of the movie which doesnot give ample scope to any star in particular.

    The film mainly moves around Salman & Katrina with Anil Kapoor takingthe limelight post interval. Salman Khan & Katrina look good as acouple but it is not one of their best movies. However, I liked Salmanin the last scene when he cries in front of Boman to save the life ofhis brother Anil. He never looks like acting in the scene and provesthat he has got the talent too along with the fab body. The scene whereKatrina is playing and teasing topless Salman shows their off screenbonding clearly. Katrina has a fresh look but her hair style could havebeen better. Anil Kapoor as usual is almost perfect but at placesrepeats his "Eeshwar" act. Actually Anil gets betrayed by the scriptand hence his character fails to strike the emotional chord with theviewer. Zayed Khan still relies more on his looks than his acting.Boman Irani is a bit loud but calms down in his last scene with Salman.Mithun Da in a guest appearance enjoys his few scenes with elegance.

    Like in his earlier movies, "Yuvraaj" also has a rich family with aMama ji, cunning uncles, brothers, loyal servants and a vamp bhabhi.Here the bhabhi is too hot to handle and has the looks to kill. Climaxis the least convincing part with a twist told so many times beforewhere the performer is poisoned before his main grand show. Even thesong is not enjoyable enough for the grand finale. Till you reach theclimax you lose interest in the happenings and wish the movie was onlyaround Salman and Katrina.

    Apart from the fresh cinematography, the other major highlight of thefilm is the music of A. R. Rahman. Though this time the magic of "Taal"is missing and the music needs time to grow on the listener. Two songsscore over all the others with "Tu Hi Meri Dost Hai" being the best.The songs may not be that entertaining for the Indian audience as theyare designed giving more stress on Western Arrangements. Honestly Ialso cannot rate this as one of Rahman's best as i was expecting muchmore from the combination of Rahman & Ghai.

    In few words, I again found the "Golden Touch of Subhash Ghai" missingin this. But if you are a Salman-Katrina fan then you will surely enjoytheir lovable screen presence together.

    I saw Yuvvraj today in a theater and I cursed myself for wasting myhard-earned money on such a stupid movie. Zayed Khan cannot act. Heshould not be acting at all. Katrina Kaif cannot act as well, but sheis much better than Zayed Khan. I was actually quite impressed andsurprised by Salman Khan. He is the only saving grace of the movie. Hisperformance was good, I cannot call it great, but reasonably good.

    The storytelling was choppy, the script was confusing and the characterdevelopment inconsistent and incomplete. The film just jumped from onetheme to another and the story didn't flow at all. Towards the end Iwas like looking at my watch and just waiting for the film to end. Itwas really a waste of time, energy and money. It was not Subhash Ghaiquality at all. I wonder if Subhash Ghai even directed this film, hemust have just signed his name on it. The story-telling was so lame.

    The only things I liked about the movie were cinematography and thesongs. Gulzar once again has proved that he is the greatest song writerin India. A.R. Rahman music is quite good too.

    Overall, avoid this movie. If it comes on T.V. then you can watch it,but don't spend your hard-earned money on this crap!

    I highly expected positive outcome from this film specially afterseeing its first trailer in TV and promoting it as a musical. And alsodeeply impressed with the song Tu Meri Dost Hai from Rahman. But doesit really deserve to disappoint its audience? If I think over thisquestion then it is absolutely 'yes', Whenever any Subhash Ghai film isbeing made, and about to release first thing that comes in my mind isit must have these common subjects associated in the film. Thesesubjects are – family, wealth, tradition and music. In this caseYuvvraaj is also not an exceptional. In brief, the whole story is aboutthree brothers with numerous differences among themselves are in targetof owning the rights of their properties after their father's demise.Not only this, besides there is another globe which is concerned tomusic. After all this is a Shubash Ghai film.

    At first I have to mention is of casting, which is considerable. Thencomes performance. Throughout the whole movie only Anil Kapoor is inhis form to entertain the audience from his side though he playssomething very unusual role in his career. Even that I didn't expecthis unique role before finally catching the film.

    What to say about Salman!!! He is the one who always play similar typeof role which is always related to conspiracy, jealous, bossy anddomination. I was so shocked about 2 years before when it was rumouredthat he was casted in this film by Shubash Ghai. I couldn't believe itthen, but now ultimately I finished watching. OK there is nothing newfrom Salman in judgment of his performance, character and the role heis offered in Yuvvraaj. His body language, facial expression, speakingmanner and dressing looks are not different from his other 10 films. Itshows he doesn't commit himself seriously to bring out reality in thecharacter in every movie. It is clear all cannot become either AamirKhan or Kamal Hassan.

    Last but not the least of all three brothers Danesh, performed by ZayedKhan. I don't know when will Zayed be offered for an award winning rolein his career. Not even a single film I have in mind to prove that heis an excellent actor. His previous flops like Mission Istanbul orSpeed were really senseless and lower grade movies. Here too I wascompletely disappointed by him.

    But again, Boman Irani is always and all time interesting actor whosesense of humour is precious to any movie where he is involved with. Heis really a brilliant actor, and in Yuvvraaj his role could have alsodone by Anupam Kher, but anyway Boman was an excellent choice.

    Now come to Subhash Ghai? He has lost his creative ideas and cannotcope up with the present generation audiences, and thus he againprovided this kind of outdated script. Moreover these days it isalready common in Bollywood stories about brothers rivaling with eachother for wealth and money. And this is the exact reason for bombingthis movie in box-office. His last movie that audiences as well ascritics accepted was his Taal (or before this Pardes which was amasterpiece). It was followed a hat-trick with 3 continuous flopsYaadein, Kisna and Black & White. Now Yuvvraaj reached to fourth serialflop. SO BETTER NOT TO EXPECT MUCH FROM HIM IN THE COMING FUTURE.

    Bollywood's bad PR continues with the release of this movie.

    Plus Great cinematography and good music score. Beautiful locations andgrand sets.

    Spoilers This movie is so lame! Terrible repeating of the samebackground music score. Bad acting by Salman and Katrina. Zalman Khan,you can't act! Katrina Kaif can only smile like a barby doll. Terribleoveracting by Anil Kapoor, an autist who understands emotion. It seemslike the director has thought that a consistent story doesn't count andjust focus on picturizing and cast nice laughing people who overactslike idiots.

    Please Bollywood stop producing this kind of horror. From now on I willonly watch movie of Mira Nair, Vidhu Chopra and Farhan Akhtar's.

    How about that ? To say the least , Yuvvraaj is a good watch . i justfinished watching it . As usual , i thought i would not last even 15minutes , with the hammed up acting of Salman and the over complicatedstoryline or absolutely rubbish story with all of his previous releasesin 2008 . So i was quite pessimistic with this one too.

    But surprise , surprise . Even though i am not a big Salmon hammy khanfan , i would have to say honestly , he did give a good performance,for once i didn't feel cheated by paying to watch a Salmon's movie .He was good so were others . only exception is Zayed khan . as usual henever lets me down . i don't even know why he is acting ? He is a surebet when it comes to huge letdown on acting. He ruins everything.

    The story is simple , Its about 3 brothers , Anil , Salmon and Zayed .The 2 Khans aka Salmon and Zayed wish to inherit a huge sum from theirfathers estate who dies and leaves the whole inheritance . The catch isthe father pulls a fast one and leaves the inheritance to Anil , theeldest one who is Mentally retarded. So as usual the khans gets angry obe weaseled out of the deal. Mithun plays a convincing role of a willattorney who breaks the good news to the brothers that they are connedout of the deal by their dead father. Salman who is a talented chorussinger in Austria is in love with the alluring Katrina ,Awwww. Why canti get a girl like that . anyhow getting back to the story . Kat is thedaughter of Boman Irani who is a wealthy surgeon and does not likeSalman . So finally Salmon and Irani sign an accord that states ifSalmon becomes a billionaire within 40 days , he will marry Kat or elseleave her. on the other hand Salmon on reaching London where gets thehappy news about his fathers will from Mithun .And then the storystarts , What will Salmon do ? Will he try to con Anil , his elderbrother out of his inheritance so that he get the whole estate so thathe can marry Kat or will he try to help Anil, his mentally retardedelder brother and save him from Zayed and rest of the family members.

    Performance wise , i would say its Salmans best performance this year.Anil is a great actor , always has been and he has done a fine work.Mithun shows up here and there but is quite convincing in his role of ahigh power attorney. The story is good , the songs are good. As statedpreviously , only Zayed is an eye sore with his extra hammed up socalled acting. Salman gives a good performance and for once he keepshis shirt on. Even in the songs . what a surprise.

    Story wise its a old one , just repacked in a new material , with goodscenic Austria as its backdrop. The cast is well chosen and the storygoes on In its own pace , smoothly.

    Guys and gals ! i will be honest . i look at movies as a investment inmy leisure time . so it has to be my moneys worth . or else it doesn'tmatter what the media says or what everyone else says . After the movieends i should feel that my money was well spent and i am entertained.

    This movie does so . Its a good watch and i would recommend it . Thisis a simple story scripted and made so that its digestible Overall iwould give it a fun family watch. I will give it a 8/10 . and twothumbs up.
