Trivia

Whilst shooting in Kolkata for a song in a stadium. Neetu Singh started crying, who had recently got engaged and didn't want to be away from Rishi Kapoor. The phones in Kolkata weren't working and Rishi was upset that he couldn't get through to Neetu. Amitabh Bachchan asked Neetu why she was crying. Neetu said, she wanted to go back.' Amitabh called the producer, asked him to book Neetu's ticket back to Mumbai and said they would manage the song without Neetu. The whole song was changed. This is the reason why Neetu is in half of the song and then disappears. See more »

Brilliant...Amitabh at his Best
10 June 2006 | by (London) – See 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
