Where did you watch this movie?

'Darr' is fear. And fear beats in every lover's heart. Fear that your love may not be reciprocated, fear that you lose the one you love, fear that your beloved could have a change of heart. In short, fear is the villain in every love story. But, in 'Darr', fear is the ultimate expression of passion, of obsession and of sacrifice. 'Darr' is Rahul's story of love and obsession for Kiran, that frees him from all fears of life and death, wipes away his inhibitions and ability to discriminate between right and wrong. 'Darr' is Sunil's story, whose enduring love and passion for Kiran gives him the courage to face the fear of death. And finally 'Darr' is Kiran's story, one who is caught between one man's love and another man's obsession. She fears one and fears for the other. One stands for love and the other for life. In this battle between love and life, the supreme victor is Love, because Love always wins, in Life and in Death.

Trivia:
The title "Darr" was already reserved by the popular horror filmmakers, Shyam Ramsay and Tulsi Ramsay for their upcoming horror movie, but Yash Chopra requested the use of title from them, and they agreed to let him use it.

This was the last film with the splendid and soulful music, created by the talented duo, Shiv Kumar Sharma and Hariprasad Chaurasia.

The idea for the film germinated when Aditya Chopra and Uday Chopra, Yash Chopra's sons, saw the Hollywood horror movie "Dead Calm".

Sunny Deol, who was a more popular star than Shah Rukh Khan in 1993, was given a choice by Yash Chopra of choosing, either the role of Sunil Malhotra or the role of Rahul Mehra. Deol chose to play Malhotra, believing it would improve his career, but instead the reverse occurred: Shah Rukh Khan's performance was more acclaimed than Deol's.
