Pokkiri Raja (English: Rogue King) is a 1982 Tamil movie from India. It was directed by SP. Muthuraman, starring Rajinikanth and was a commercial success. This film was the remade into Telugu film Chutthalunnaru Jagratha (1983) and was later remade as Mawaali in 1983 in Hindi.

Ramesh (Rajinikanth) starts managing the office of an industrialist who strongly suspects his relatives to be looting him. Ramesh finds the culprit and keeps a tight leash on everything happening in the office, thereby earning the wrath of the industrialist's relatives. Ramesh and Sridevi (the industrialist's daughter) initially find themselves at loggerheads, but eventually fall in love with each other. The industrialist is happy about this development until he sees Ramesh cheating on his daughter. He fires Ramesh the very same day.

The industrialist is murdered and Sridevi also sees Ramesh in her house that same night. Ramesh is dragged to court and is shortly framed for murder. Sridevi is upset, and the ill-intentioned relatives start closing their net around her, forcing her to marry Y. G. Mahendran (the son of two of the industrialist's relatives).

In the meantime, the grief-stricken Ramesh meets another person named Raja (also Rajinikanth) in jail who looks exactly like him. Together Ramesh and Raja plan to punish the culprits and set the record straight.
