Director Shankar, taking a break from the post-production works of ‘2.0’, his upcoming film starring superstar Rajinikanth in the lead, has watched the recent critically acclaimed movie ‘Pariyerum Perumal’.
Soon after watching the film, he tweeted: “Pariyerum Perumal movie is like literature in cinema.. deep and disturbing… purely thought provoking…”
Heaping more praises, he said, “The killer was so terrifying while Jo is a character that’s soothing and softening element used at apt situations.Excellent work by the dir Mari Selvaraj.”
A film based on caste differences prevailing in the south of Tamil Nadu, ‘Pariyerum Perumal’ is written and directed by Mari Selvaraj. Produced by Pa Ranjith, the film stars Kathir and Anandhi in the leading roles with Yogi Babu in a supporting role. The film features music composed by Santhosh Narayanan.
‘Pariyerum Perumal’ narrates the story of a youth hailing from Puliyankulam village near Tirunelveli. Pariyan (Kathir) belongs to an oppressed caste, as evident from the setting of the film and the people he comes across in this story. The movie begins with the brutal murder of his beloved ‘Karuppi’. The canine hunting companion of Pariyan is the first one we see becoming a victim of caste.
