One Time Watch for Sure
6 January 2017 | by aji4u4everSee all my reviews

Poraali revolves around two illiterate men who comes to Chennai in search of the job. Within a short span, they conquered the hearts of the people living in their surroundings and when every piece starts to falling in the right place, their past starts to haunt them very badly.

Written and Directed P. Samuthirakkani, I felt the movie is a worth watch coz of the comedy in the first half and the mindless and gore actions in the second half. First half went too fast but the second half was very slow and lagging. The background score was a major letdown in the whole movie. The score was inept and loud which made my ears bleed :P

M. Sasikumar as always his face plain but he tried to emote a bit. Allari Naresh was okay but was aggressive. Ganja Karupp scored in his outings. His counters worth to laugh.

Whole total the movie is a one time watch and i would give a rating of 6.2 on 10
