During the lockdown, we all have binged watched so much content on OTT platforms that most of us have developed a taste for genres that initially we would probably not pick.Intense stories from north India with thrilling plots- Crime Thrillers is one such space I have started watching across the OTT Platforms.So when ZEE5 dropped the teaser of “Yaara” and captioned it as, “Four friends. One ultimate test. Can they outrun their past? Celebrate the launch of #YaaraOnZEE5 this #FriendshipDay, 30th July. #BondOfYaara (sic).”

वो मेरा दोस्त है, सारे जहां को है मालूम
दगा करे वह किसी से, तू शर्म आये मुझे
-कातिल शिपाहीThat is the opening statement of the #Trailer and says so much about the friendship in the world of crime. Recently, I have seen #AmitShad on ZEE5 in Operation Parindey and since then I have been looking forward to more of his work. The on screen presence and the conviction that Amit has is truly outstanding and who can do action sequence better than #Vidyut himself with his back to back action sequence – #Commando1, #Commando2, #Commando3 he has carved a niche for himself in this segment while watching the trailer you can feel the chemistry among these 4 Friends.Another highlight of this movie is the unique, talented mix of actors who have done a phenomenal job on each of their characters. Just have a look at the few shots from the Trailer and you can feel the vibe from the 70s – 90s set in the north Indian backdrop and the friendship stands out in the scenes undoubtedly. Just like the movies from the 90s the 4 friends transition from kids to adult while being on the mountain cliff by the sea.

A self proclaimed storyteller who loves food and is a health freak to the core. A person who has got a sense of humor to lighten up the most serious stuff. i love the life as it comes, planning is not my cup of tea since i am coffee lover. I brew my own jokes in all situations and love being my own audience. Happy go lucky is the attitude that i carry around. and i stay away from people who throw attitude(cant understand why they carry the weight of their attitude when all they can do is to throw it on others )

    Recently I watched the Hindi movie Yaara on ZEE5. It is a story of ‘Chaukdi Gang’, and the two men who helped build this gang played by Vidyut Jammwal and Amit Sadh. This gang of four which includes Vijay Varma is nabbed by the police and serve their time in jail. However, both men who once ruled the drug smuggling, gun-running, and looting struggle in their own different ways to escape their past and start a new life after being released.
