The superhit duo of Naadodigal, Samuthirakani and M Sasikumar have teamed up again for Poraali. This time, their film entertain the audience with well-written dialogues and a good story but disappoints the audience at parts with some boring moments.
The story begins on a rainy night, when Ilamkumaran (Sasikumar) and Nallavan (Allari Naresh) ran from mental hospital and reaches Chennai city. They settle at Pulikutty (Ganja Karuppu) 's residence and find jobs in a petrol bunk. His honesty and kind heartedness win people. As the part of the story, a girl named Bharathi (Swathi) comes to his life. Like most of the movies, her initial wrong beliefs about him change as the time passes by. Soon, the love blooms between them.
But there lies a twist by the end of the first half. Ilamkumaran's past is mysterious and people are behind him to see him death. The second half has a quite a few flashbacks that make the audience to believe that the first and the second parts are two-different flicks.
