Mani Ratnam is back in Bollywood after his self imposed five year long exile. But only to churn out the biggest multistarrer, Yuva, for his production banner Madras Talkies.

As the name suggests Yuva is the story of three young couples and how their lives get entangled after a fateful day.

Ajay Devgan is Michael Mukherjee, a PhD student, who take an active part in society and politics and questions oneself before blaming everything else around them for the degeneration of the socio politic fabric.

Playing his love interest is Esha Deol, Radhika. A French teacher by profession Radhika wants to get married, but Michael doesn't believes in institution of marriage.

Vivek Oberoi is Arjun Balakrishnan, a typical yuppie and an engineer who plans to shift his base to USA and enjoy life. But his ladylove Mira (Kareena Kapoor) wants to get married and settled down in Kanpur.

Abhishek Bachchan is Lallan and the most unpredictable of them all. He believes that his needs are more important than the right and wrongs of life. He lives for himself and feels that he owes nothing to anybody except himself.

He fears no one and listens to none. He stays in Kolkata with his love Sashi (Rani Mukherjee).

When the three young men are brought together by an accident on the Second Hoogly Bridge in Kolkata, their lives change irreversibly. Their change, their conflict, and their interactions with each other is the crux of the film. The film examines the lives of these three men and their families and the complex relationships between individuals who are very different, yet so similar.

Sonu Sood plays the main negative lead in the film. The music of the film is composed by A.R.Rehman while Mehboob has written the lyrics.

Yuva has also been made in a Tamil version (Ayutha Ezhuthu) simultaneously, which stars Surya, Madhavan, Siddharth, Meera Jasmine, Trisha Krishnan and Esha Deo.
