Pariyerum Perumal Review
Selvaraj has also given a gist that a dog is treated better than a low-caste person, which he claims to be a hard reality. Cinematography, editing and music departments go hand in hand with the storyline and direction, which add to the major positives of the movie.
Final Verdict With its realistic approach, Pariyerum Perumal will make an impact on the audience.
Pariyerum Perumal can also be called a musical of sorts. Santhosh Narayanan provides a clean winner in terms of songs and the background score. The standard of scoring is very high and SaNa's work is brilliant.
Kathir is extremely impressive as the titular character and his box of expressions is deep. 'Kayal' Anandhi has an interesting character to play and she does a convincing job of it.
Verdict: Pariyerum Perumal is a well-made film that makes you think and hits you hard right in the soul!
With scenes that supebly capture the immorality of caste discrimination, Mari Selvaraj paints a powerful picture of the inequality that exists in our society in the name of caste.
A scene at the principal’s office, where the principal motivates a disillusioned Pariyan offers a whistle-worthy moment. Similarly, a scene at the hospital between Pariyan and his mom is charged with emotion.
Our overall critic’s rating is not an average of the sub scores below.
The film’s soundtrack by Santhosh Narayanan is easily his most important work till date. Listening to Santhosh sing 'Karuppi' or 'Naan Yaar' on the big screen gets under your skin, quite literally.
Pariyerum Perumal begins with this line - ‘Caste and religion are against humanity’ but it cannot be tagged as a film on caste. Unlike most films, Pariyerum Perumal does not leave you hanging. Can there be a change? The film’s ending dialogue and closing shot are your answers.
Kathir is a wonderful choice to play the lead. Watch him in a scene in which he’s pushed inside a ladies toilet. He’s squirming on the ground but later, when he walks away, there seems to newfound confidence and aggression that he’s discovered.
The film excels in the technical departments as well; Sridhar’s restless camera seems to want to communicate something all the time.
