Trivia

When director rakesh kumar wanted to make this film, amitabh was busy with other films, then rakesh kumar, one day saw Amitabh"s diary and saw that Amitabh is free before 8 am morning, so the maker convined amitabh to shoot for him daily from 7am morning to 8am till the film was complete. So this film was shot daily for about one hour. In the lp record of yarana only male singers mohdrafi & kishore kumar have sung all songs of the film. See more »

Brilliant...Amitabh at his Best
10 June 2006 | by Li_85See all my reviews

Yaarana is a movie about friendship. Amitabh Bachchan in a powerhouse performance. Alongside Amitabh is the late Amjad Khan in another powerhouse performance. The movie is a simple tale about 2 friends and their sacrifices they have to make to help each other including family and financial situations. Yaarana is a light hearted entertaining movie which gets quite serious towards the interval. Amitabh is always brilliant, but its Amjad Khan who gives a surprising role as a good hearted character. After Many negative roles Amjad Khan finally plays a Good guy and does a Fantastic job of it. The movie was a Blockbuster Hit in India. The music was also a Super Hit, Tere jaisa yaar is my favourite among the songs. This is One movie that i never get bored of it. A big time entertainer and Must see
