Yahaan is a Hindi movie released in India on July 29, 2005. The cast consists of Jimmy Shergill, Minissha Lamba and Yashpal Sharma.
Adaa (Minissha Lamba) is a Kashmiri girl torn between her army officer lover Aman (Jimmy Shergill) and her jehaadi insurgent brother Shakeel (Yashpal Sharma). Trouble ensues when Aman's superiors come to know his involvement with the sister of a terrorist and implicate him as an accomplice. Thus, Adaa begins a valiant attempt to save her lover from the perils of a court-martial and Shakeel is torn between his former family's happiness and safety and his own jehaadi cause.
The film didn't manage big business mainly because of being slotted among much bigger summer releases. However critics praised the film for being warm and intimate. Minissha Lamba's performance was considered one of the film's highlights.
