A shooting report by Ashok Bhatia from AzamgarhMarch 30th, 2009 - 2:36 pm ICT by Sampurn Wire
The marvellous bunglow of late Bachcha Babu is unparalled at Azamgarh. A marriage pandal in the huge courtyard and Mandap in the aangan. Everything was ready for the marriage ceremony. Father of the bride was moving restless while the guests were being bored waiting for the Baraat. It was almost morning and nealy all people were sleepy. Some were dozing off sitting on chairs while some were standing by pillars. Bhupati Singh, father of the bride and a powerlord of the village, had lost his patience by now. While coming out of the house he sees his henchman Mangaru who was dozing off while standing by a pillar. Bhupati bursts out in anger and kicks him blaming him for all this fiasco. It was Mangaru who had advised Bhupati to marry off his daughter to the son of the local Patwari Ramprasad. A journalist who has came to cover the marriage asks Bhupati, What should be the headline tomorrow ? And answers himself, Bride waits while groom absconds. It makes Bhupati furious and he draws out his revolver and threatens everyone to sit down and wait.
In the meantime a Baraat arrives and everyone rushes hearing the band. The groom steps down from the jeep and embraces Bhupati before drawing out his revolver and announces his arrival to avenge his insult. A free fight ensues and suddenly someone roars, CUT.
Everything comes back to normal. The injured looking persons start being normal. The rolling camera stops. It was a shooting in progress for the film Prem Ke Rog Bhayel. Director Farooq Siddique and fight master R.P.Yadav start discussing the next scene. Awadhesh Mishra, the badman of Bhojpuri Cinema, is playing the role of Bhupati and is developing as an Onkara of Bhojpuri cinema with his dialogues laced with obscenities. Santosh Srivastava is Mangaru, Gopal Ray is Ramprasad, Heera is playing Heera, while the imposter groom is Aiyaz Khan. Even Ashok Bhatia has played a small role of the journalist in the film.
Farooq Siddique, director of the film, has directed many Hindi films including Jigar, Vijaypath, The Don, Vishwavidhata, Kahani Kismat ki, Revati etc and is directing a Bhojpuria film for the first time. He had refused many past offers to do a Bhojpuri film by other producers till he got a sincere producer as Dinesh Lal Nirahua. The story of the film Prem Ke Rog Bhayel is based in a Bihar village. Bihari culture believes in verbal commitments and fulfills their promises come what may. It is also a love story with a message that the enevitable happens everytime and one cannot run from ones fate.
Telling about the scene, Farooq says, it is the marriage ceremony of Puja (Pakhi Hegde) where the groom becomes traceless due to some reason and taking benefit of the situation the brother(Aiyaz Khan) of local MLA arrives imposting as the groom. Puja is in love with Ravi(Denesh Lal Yadav Nirahua), son of the local Patwari Ramprasad(Gopal Ray). This masala film has all the ingredients viewers love and hopes that the film will prove to be the most successful film of the year.
Pravesh Lal Yadav is producing this film His first film Chalani Ke Chalal Dulha is going to be released in May this year and this second film too is almost complete. Pravesh is debuting in Chalani Ke Chalal Dulha.
Famous comedian of Bhojpuri Cinema Manioj Tiger is the executive producer of the film Prem Ke Rog Bhayel and is acting too in the film. Viewers shall love his antics in this film too.

Nirahua is playing the role of an obstinate student who gets his desires fulfilled at any cast. At the same time he loves his mother and cant tolerate tears in her eyes. He says all the story cannot be revealed now but the viewers shall get a pleasant surprise with this film.
