Trivia

During the the song 'Saara Zamaana', the light bulb outfit went on and off via a switch which was firmly placed in Amitabh Bachchan's hand. He had to press the switch on-off in tune with the beat of the song. The mastermind behind this idea of the outfit was Amitabh Bachchan himself. 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
