A period drama with the Indo-Pak partition of 1947 as its backdrop, ‘Yaara Ve’ is all set to take us all down a memory lane to the times when India and Pakistan were one and there was only one ‘Punjab’.
It’s a film celebrating the spirit of friendship of three guys played by Yuvraj Hans, Gagan Kokri and Raghvir Boli that goes through the test of times. The female lead is played by Monica Gill (who’s worked in films like Ambarsaria, Kaptaan and more).
Rakesh Mehta, the director of ‘Yaara Ve’ (who has earlier directed critically-acclaimed films like Waapsi and Rang Panjab) remarked, “When I decided to make ‘Yaara Ve’, I wanted to make it as real as it can be. From selecting the locations and working on each and every thing used, to all the costumes, I was personally involved in everything.”
When asked as to what kind of preparations were done to depict the times of about 75 years ago on the big screen, the director added, “We have paid keen attention to make an extensive set to reflect the times of 1940s. Instead of going to places like Ganganagar and some villages around Rajasthan, we actually made a set, complete with old-style houses. Yaara Ve’s essence is not limited to just the characters but the location and the whole village, which play a very significant role in the story. And, now I think, we have done our best and people will definitely go down the memory lane”, he added
