Sasi Kumar, who plays the lead role in Poraali, has said that the film does not deal with revolution, as guessed by many. He revealed that the film dwells on the life of a young man who has to fight to achieve what he wants.
It is a story of an individual, he clarified. Sasi Kumar added that he appears in two getups in this film and has cut short his long mane for this purpose. The shooting of Poraali is currently going on in and around Chennai and the team had shot extensively in Theni before arriving to Chennai.
Sundar C Babu has scored the music for this film and Samuthirakani has directed it. Swathi, Vasundara and Niveda play the female lead stars.
