Unique in technique and uncompromising in narrative, Mani Ratnam has every reason to be labelled one of India's finest filmmakers. Witness his craftsmanship in films like Mouna Ragam (remade as Kasak in Hindi), Nayakan (remade as Dayavan in Hindi), Anjali, Roja, Bombay and Alai Payuthey (remade as Saathiya in Hindi).
After the mixed response to Dil Se.. (Shah Rukh Khan, Manisha Koirala, Preity Zinta), his first film in Hindi, Ratnam is at it again. His new film, Yuva, revolves around today's youth and their dreams, desires and difficulties.
