As the Friendship Day falls today, Vidyut Jammwal, Amit Sadh, Vijay Varma, Shruti Hassan and Kenny Basumatary starrer Yaara comes at the right time to celebrate the bond of companionship. Is it worth spending your time ? Let us find out..

Yaara tells the story of four friends – Phagun, Mitwa, Rizwan and Bahadur, who form a group called Chokdu Gang which deals with smuggling operations across the Indo-Nepal border. While Phagun, Rizwan and Bahadur have moved on after 20 years, Mitwa is still stuck and is now a wanted man. Will his friends come back for him and prove that their friendship will remain intact through thick and thin times ?
Directed by Tigmanshu Dhulia who gave us immensely likable films like Haasil, Paan Singh Tomar and Sahib Biwi Aur Gangster, I was expecting a lot from this film. Yaara shows promise as we step into the film but fails to sustain as the friendship drama swaps between past and present. The film, though keeps you at the bay with light moments in first half, the second half is a complete flat and even the 2 hours 10 mins story seems long-stretched with loose screenplay.
The editing is poor while the cinematography and art direction was enthralling. Music is another big letdown. Except for “Khudkushi”, other songs are disappointing.

Coming to the performances, all four protagonist – Vidyut Jammwal as Phagun , Amit Sadh as Mitwa, Vijay Varma as Rizwan and Kenny Basumatar as Bahadur shows a fantastic chemistry which lets you enjoy the film for some extent. Shruti Hassan looks good and performs better than expected.

So, overall, Yaara had the potential to become perfect gift for this Friendship day but wafer-thin plot drags down the film to make it a decent watch. Average 2.5/5
