Prem: All you must know about Bollywood’s romantic drama movie

by Ratan Srivastava

Prem is indeed a 1995 Hindi-language romantic drama film directed by Satish Kaushik, with Baba Azmi and Chota K. Naidu as cinematographers. The movie features Sanjay Kapoor and Tabu in multiple roles and is about rebirth. Before Kaushik was hired, Shekhar Kapoor had been attached to helm the picture. The movie bombed at the box office.

Sanjay Verma is a handsome young guy who’s been seeing visions of himself as Shantanu in a previous life. He travels to a tiny town and encounters Sonia Verma, whom he identifies as that of the girl called Lachi from his dreams.

Believing that the would-be lovers in a previous life, he tries in vain to persuade Sonia, who is engaged to Vikram Minocha and about to marry him. Sanjay, on the other hand, eventually wins her over and the two become united within the end.

26 years, since its release.

Prem, starring Tabu as well as Sanjay Kapoor, was released in the year 2021, marking the 26th anniversary of the movie. Directed by Satish Kaushik, the movie marked Sanjay Kapoor’s Bollywood debut, although he went on to star in films such as Beqabu, Sirf Tum, LOC Kargil, and Luck By Chance, amongst many others. Sanjay Kapoor released an album commemorating the 26th anniversary of his film debut, which included a still from a 1995 picture starring Tabu as well as the movie’s poster.

Audience reviews-

One of my favourite films from my youth since I’ve always been captivated by the concept of ‘Reincarnation.’ But it’s ridiculous that the producers and director felt they could borrow the name of a tribe like the Jarawa to add credibility to the storey, then cast Tabu, a fair-skinned Caucasian, as a Jarawa lady. And as a Jarawa guy, Amrish Puri. Now that I’ve seen the movie, it feels even more ludicrous than it did before. The song was very unnerving for me as a youngster, despite its clear ‘bollywoodesque’ treatment. Now it’s simply blah. There are plot twists, and it gets fairly enjoyable after a while. I wished they had chosen Shekhar Kapoor as the director rather than Satish Kaushik, as was originally planned. It seemed inevitable that the film would be a box office disaster. Keep an eye out for Tabu, who nails the role of a naive tribal lady despite the terrible directing and storyline.
