Kathir is born in a ‘low caste’ at a village in Tirunelveli. He is disturbed by the fact that no one respect his villagers. A senior villager advises him that to stop this discrepancy and to bring justice to the village, Kathir must become a advocate. Following this, he joins a law college, where he meets Yogi Babu and they both become friends. Anandhi who is Kathir’s classmate likes his straight forwardness and befriends him. One day she invites him to attend a function at her home and Kathir too goes wearing a new dress. However, Anandhi’s father and brother lock Kathir in a room and beat him up and insult him.
Dejected by this he decides to stay away from them, but they keep causing trouble. At one stage not able to bear their torture, he goes to college drunk and gets caught.
This news reaches the Principal who shares his experience and the importance of studies giving fresh motivation to Kathir. With new intent and new aim Kathir comes out of the college only to find his dad nude and humiliated. He also learns about the plans to murder him. What he does after that? Did he become an advocate, was he able to bring justice to his village form the rest.
Kathir whose character was much appreciated in his last flick Vikram Vedha has taken his acting skills to next level with Pariyerum Perumal. Kayal Anandhi has a innocent role in the movie. Yogi Babu has a strong characterisation and has as usual done his job to satisfaction. All other supporting cast in the movie have lived as their characters giving audience the feel of actually being in the village.
Director Mari Selvaraj has got every minute detail to perfection to suit the movie. Sridhar’s cinematography is one of the biggest strengths of the movie. Santhosh Narayanan’s music and silence are both very effective in the course of the movie.
