PORAALI MOVIE PREVIEW
by : Behindwoods Review Board
Sasi Kumar, Swathi, Allari Naresh, Kancha Karuppu
Sundar C Babu Production:
The last time Samuthirakani directed Sasikumar, the movie was a runaway hit. Not only was it a runaway hit in Tamil, it was also made in all the regional languages such as Malayalam, Kannada and Telugu. Besides, it is also said that there is a Hindi version in cards which will probably have Shahid Kapoor in the lead. So there is every reason to look forward to their second venture as director / actor with Poraali.
Other than the provocative title, there is nothing either Sasikumar or Samuthirakani has revealed to the media. Story of the movie is left for the assumption of media as of now. Written and directed by Samuthirakani, the movie stars Sasikumar in the lead role. Joining him in the cast list are some of Samuthirakani - Sasikumar regulars like Swati and Ganja Karuppu. Telugu actor Allari Naresh, who played a role in the Telugu Nadodigal, Vasundhara and Jayaprakash play other pivotal roles.
Poraali is scored by Sundar C Babu and has 5 songs, one of which (Vithiya Potri) is sung by Samuthirakani and Sasikumar. Sundar C Babu also scored for Nadodigal and the songs were chartbusters. But they were also slow to pick up, it looks like that in this case as well.
Poraali is produced by Company Productions and was supposed to be released last weekend, November 25th. After a postponement, the movie is releasing on Thursday, December 1st. It's in very few occasions that a movie gets released on Thursday. Let's hope Poraali, the fighter, wins everyone's hearts like Nadodigal did.
