Kathiresan (Bharath) is the son of self-important chesty villager Sevaka Pandian (Sampath Raj). The IT graduate is working in a leading software company. His wish is to settle down in the US. But his father does not like his son's changing attitude, as Kathir starts to project himself as an urban guy. To keep his son under his control, his father, who is against love and inter-caste wedding, fixes his marriage with a High Court judge's daughter. On the other end, Kathir falls in love with Nisha (Rima Kallingal), who accidentally meets her at the US Consulate. Their friendship starts with a fighting but Kathir ends up being in love.
They start bonding after Kathir helps Nisha to get her a fresh passport that she lost during their initial fight. Soon, both of them get visa but when they are all set for the journey, a shocking news hits Kathir badly. In fact, Nisha was going to her marriage in the US. But, a twist in the tale arrives, when his father misreads their friendship as love and kidnaps her before leaving abroad. However, he saves her but her wedding gets cancelled. Later, Kathir tries to persuade Nisha to love him but she leaves to Seychelles. After ten months, they came face to face again. What happens next should be seen on-screen.
Bharath is suave in Yuvan Yuvathi and has perfectly fitted the bill. He looks stylish and has shown his romantic side with ease. Rima Kallingal will be seen in the the girl-next-door look. Her bonding has gelled well with Bharath in the film. Sampath has done a brilliant job in the role of young-looking father and has proved his potential. Santhanam is at his best. Especially, his one-liners will have you in split. Rest other characters are okay.
S Ramakrishnan's story and dialogue are the strength of the film. The director without harming the writer's ideas, has scripted the story and directed Yuvan Yuvathi well. Another highlight of the film is cinematography, Gopi's photography is praiseworthy. He has captured the locales of Seychelles beautifully. The aqua blue beaches captured by him are treat to watch. Vijay Antony's music is good.
Bharath has hit back at those, who called him that he does not have star value. With his excellent performance, he has silenced his critics. Yuvan Yuvathi is a rollicking romantic sojourn.
