Yaadein (English: Memories) is a 1964 black and white Hindi film directed and produced by Sunil Dutt also starring himself. The only other actor in the film is Nargis Dutt that too in a silhouette in the final scene.[1][2]

This film is the first Indian film in cinema that features only a single actor and hence has found an entry in the Guinness Book of World Records in the category Fewest actors in a narrative film.[3][4]

Film narrative progresses through dialogues and background music composed by Vasant Desai, who also gave two songs sung by Lata Mangeshkar.


The film is soliloquy of a man who comes home to find that his wife and son are not at home, he assumes that they have left him and reminiscences his life with them, and scared of his life without them, he regrets his past indiscretions.
