If this news item is true, then I'll be happy and disappointed at the same time. Happy, because after years of threatening to do so, Mani Ratnam will be bold enough not to use songs (the music score in most of his films have been a big factor in his success, now Ram Gopal Varma will rightly be considered the pioneer in this regard in terms of contemporary commercial Indian cinema). Disappointed if they're going to call the Hindi version Yuva, which seems rather unimaginative, trite and pheeka, especially in contrast to the crisp sounding Ayudha Ezhuthu.
