It's the new buzzword around town. "Yuva". Ever since the first promos of Mani Ratnam's much awaited film Yuva hit the screens, everyone can't stop talking about the film. The music of the film is rocking the charts. Brilliantly composed by maestro A R Rahman, the sound of the film is just like the title itself. Young, energetic and fresh. "The music of Yuva is by far the best music I've heard this year." Enthuses Venus head honcho Champak Jain. It's music for the youth and the young at heart. The youngsters will freak out. "Mark my words, it's going to top all the music charts and create havoc!"

Each song is a gem, starting with the zippy "Anjaana Anjaani", picturised on Vivek oberoi and Kareena Kapoor. Kareena was running high temperature when she shot for this song and Vivek was joining the unit for the first after his accident. Inspite of this, the two finished shooting for the song in precisely one and a half days. Obviously the name Mani Ratnam is enough inspiration. The other song picturised on the pair popularly known as the disco song "Fanaa" was picturized on the first day of the shoot and completed on the last day on the schedule. The other chart toppers include the title track Yuva sung by Rahman, Kartik and Mehboob the lyricist.
