This question already has an answer here:

Long ago I made an archive of images and protected it with a password but I have forgotten the password and I made many trails to crack it with my general combinations but failed.

Are there any reliable solutions?

You can try RarCrack.

RarCrack is a command line tool that allows users to recover passwords of compressed archive files.

RarCrack uses the bruteforce algorithm to guess forgotten passwords of archive files. To install RarCrack on Ubuntu 12.04, just press Ctrl+Alt+T on your keyboard to open Terminal. When it opens, run the command(s) below:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ole.wolf/rarcrack
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install rarcrack

To install on other Ubuntu distributions, you can download from here.

rarcrack depends on the p7zip package.

Don't forget to install it with sudo apt-get install p7zip before (or after you've got the dependency error).
