The film is set to release in theatres on October 29.
With only a fortnight to go for the release of his milestone 25th film, Premam Poojyam, Nenapirali Prem gave audiences a sneak peek into the film with the trailer today. The film, according to Prem, is a family drama, with comedy, action and a beautiful love story. And going by the trailer, it would seem that this description is spot on, as we are introduced to Srihari (Prem) whose life revolves around friendship and 100% pure love, as well as the women in his life, played by Brunda Acharya and Aindrita Ray. What’s interesting is that the film seems just apt for Prem’s image as Kannada cinema’s lover boy, whom audiences call Lovely Star.
Premam Poojyam is a film that Prem dedicated well over a year to, considering that he has multiple looks in it, in keeping with his character’s age and story arc at each point. His looks apart, the film, directed by Dr Raghavendra BS, also took time in the making as it was shot across locations in Vietnam, Madhya Pradesh, Darjeeling, Dharamshala, Ooty, Mudigere, Munnar, etc., as the narrative is like a journey.
Premam Poojyam is slated for an October 29 release, along with Bhajarangi 2. Sharing the film's poster on social media, Prem had written a message to his fans that read, "After receiving your love since the day of the announcement, Premam Poojyam is now ready to hit the screens on October 29, 2021. Get ready for the magic to touch your hearts." Apart from Prem, Brinda and Aindrita, the film also stars Suman, Master Anand and Malavika Avinash in pivotal roles.
Prem will also be seen in the upcoming Rowdy Fello, as a fun cop, modelled on the lines of Pawan Kalyan in Gabbar Singh. After shooting for the role, which he quite enjoyed, the actor had said that while the character may come across as goofy, he is quite shrewd.
Meanwhile, Prem’s next as leading man will be a biopic of sorts of Field Marshal Kodandera Madappa Cariappa, the first Commander-in-Chief of the Indian Army who led Indian forces on the Western Front during the Indo-Pakistani War of 1947. The film, which is still in pre-production is to be bankrolled by Kedambi Creations, which backed Premam Poojyam as well.
