Filmmaker Bejoy Nambiar will be making his comeback to theatres after seven long years since his release of the 2017 experimental anthology film Solo, with the upcoming Por. The film, which stars Arjun Das and Kalidas Jayaram in the lead roles, will be released in Hindi as Dange with a different set of cast members.

Release date of Bejoy Nambiar’s Por

Por is set to release on big screens on March 1. The film will be released along with Gautham Menon’s action-drama Joshua Imai Pol Kaakha. Por will mark Bejoy’s comeback to theatres after seven years. In the meantime, the filmmaker has helmed series like Kaala, The Fame Game, and Sweet Kaaram Coffee, all of which released on streaming platforms.


Cast of Kalidas and Arjun Das’ Por

Por stars Kalidas Jayaram and Arjun Das in the lead roles. The film, which is expected to be a campus action drama, also stars Sanchana Natrajan and TJ Bhanu as the female leads. The Hindi version of the film is called Dange and will have Harshvardhan Rane and Ehan Bhatt taking up the male lead roles. However, TJ Bhanu will feature in both versions. 

Interestingly, Arjun Das, who is known for his angry young man look, will be playing a level-headed character, while Kalidas, known for his soft demeanour, will be playing an aggressive lad.

What is Por about?

While Por will be a campus action drama, little is known about the actual plot. However, it is said to be inspired by true events that Bejoy Nambiar got the first account of. The film, which will be hypermasculine, will explore the concept of male ego and how one small incident snowballs into a riot between two groups. The trailer for the film was released recently, which showed the tension brewing between two groups of students while at the same time exploring the lives of the youngsters.

Crew of Por

Por is written and directed by Bejoy Nambiar. However, like the rest of his works, the director collaborated with writers for the film. The screenplay has been penned by Bejoy Nambiar, Mithila Hegde, Francis Thomas and Neil Julian Balthazar, with dialogues written by Vignesh Srikanth. Anirudh Ramesh and Saraswati L have worked on the additional screenplay. Por is produced by T-Series and Bejoy Nambiar. The film is edited by Priyank Prem Kumar, and shot by Jimshi Khalid and Presley Oscar D'souza.

What does the cast have to say about Por?

In an earlier conversation with OTTplay, Bejoy said that he had no reference point for Por a nd added that the film's main target audience is college-going youngsters and urban centres. Calling it also entertaining, Bejoy said that the film will explore the psyche of male ego through the lens of the two protagonists.

Concurring with the same, Arjun also revealed how he was determined to play the calm and level-headed Prabhu in the film as opposed to the angry young man played by Kalidas. The actor also said that he tries to spend time with the directors he works with to understand the role, and he applied the same process to Por as well.
