Yaadein (Hindi: यादें, Urdu: یادیں, translation: "Memories") is a 2001 Bollywood film directed by Subhash Ghai. It was filmed throughout India, Malaysia and the UK.



Raj Singh Puri is best friends with L.K. Malhotra who is in turn younger brother to J.K. Malhotra. The brothers are business tycoons and Raj works in their company. Raj is father to three young daughters, the first one (Avantika) gets married through arrangement, but the second one marries her lover, even though Raj said the family will not fit with their lifestyle, and how they're brought up, and the last Isha doesn't believe in love. After a few weeks at her in-laws, the second daughter(Sania) returns home asking for divorce. After this, Raj becomes strictly against love and relationships. All this changes when Isha falls in love with the heir to the Malhotra empire, Ronit, L.K. Malhotra's son. They ask for Raj's blessing but he bluntly refuses and Isha understandingly shuns her realationship with Ronit. Raj arranges for Ronit to be married to the daughter of another tycoon. Isha agrees and makes him promise that he wouldn't do anything, and would listen to his parents, but deep down she still has really strong feelings for him. Ronit is unhappy, yet goes along with the promise, and makes Raj realise that his fiance's family is not right for them. Raj approaches the Malhotras to break off the engagement however J.K. Malhotra shuns him by calling him poor and small. The other Malhotras join forces to make J.K. to realise his mistake and Ronit is finally married to Isha. Raj at the end of the movie, is still living in his farmhouse with his daughters and their husbands. Avantika has a daughter.

The film was the first box office flop for Subhash Ghai and critical reviews were mixed. Ghai has since gone on record defending the film, stating that he originally developed it as solely a story of a father and his three daughters (their love interests were secondary). However, distributors apparently put pressure on him to showcase more of Hrithik Roshan in the film (his popularity skyrocketed during the making of this film). Kareena Kapoor has also since gone on record supporting the film in spite of its debacle, thanking Ghai for giving her a role that allowed to her showcase a lot of range. It was Jackie Shroff's acting that kept the movie running alive. For his excellent performance in the movie, he was nominated for a Filmfare Best Supporting Actor Award in 2002.
