Actor Jayasurya and producer Vijay Babu of Friday Film House will be associating for the film Thrissur Pooram. They have earlier collaborated for Aadu and Aadu 2. This time around it is an action entertainer that will have Jayasurya in a serious role.

On the film, Vijay Babu has said to Cinema Express, “It's a Thrissur-based mass film. It's divided into several chapters, each named after the various stages of the pooram, such as Kodiyettam and Vedikettu. It's an attempt to deliver a different kind of mass film and do justice to this genre. It will have all the ingredients necessary for an entertainer.”

Wielding the megaphone for this venture is debutant director Rajesh Mohanan and the story and screenplay are by music composer Ratheesh Vega. Ratheesh spoke about it to Cinema Express. “Every event in pooram has a certain kind of energy and we are trying to impart the same energy and exhilaration to this film.”
