CAST & CREW
‘ Youngistaan’ has been directed by debutant director, Syed Ahmad Afzal, starring ‘F.A.L.T.U.’ fame, Jackky Bhagnani, and ‘Kya Super Kool Hai Hum’ fame, Neha Sharma in the lead roles. The film has been produced by Jackky Bhagnani’s father, Vashu Bhagnani. This movie is the late Farooq Sheikh’s last movie (famous for his role in ‘Lahore’).
The film doesn’t have any potential political drama. There is a bit of romance as everyone expected after the release of the hit song, ‘Suno Na Sangemarmar’, but failed to attract the viewers. The movie failed at the box-office.
Abhimanyu Kaul (Jackky Bhagnani) is a games developer who lives independently in Japan with his love, Anwita Chauhan (Neha Sharma). They are in a live-in relationship.
He has to visit India suddenly, because his father is dying. Unfortunately for him, his father is the Indian Prime Minister, and his last wish was for his son to become the next Prime Minister. He reluctantly accepts to be the PM of India, but finds it hard to balance his love life along with the professional life (politics).
Being in the political spotlight since he is a public figure, his privacy has been compromised. Anwitha gets frustrated a few times because of the constant focus of media over their live-in relationship. Abhimanyu faces difficult times and finds it hard to settle down.
Except the secretary of his father, Akbar Patel, most of the party members are against his governance. But, in the course of time, though an amateur, Abhimanyu changes the course of events in his favor by making intelligent moves.
Finally, Abhimanyu is victorious through his hard work and honesty.
Though the movie was given ample publicity as a new political drama, it majorly focuses on romance. Though a musical hit, it fails to prove its worth to the audience.
Late Farooq Sheikh’s acting performance bolstered the movie by not turning into it a disaster. The actress Neha Sharma has also done a decently good job.
This is majorly for the youth who would like to watch romance and some light-hearted political drama. The movie has good production values, which attracts the viewers to watch it.
WHAT'S NOT THERE?
From its promotions of the protagonist being the youngest Prime Minister of India, many expected it to have thrilling political sequences, but it lacked any potential political substance.
Though the movie doesn’t have any serious political drama, it’s production values, and good romance sequences make it watchable for the youth.
