Although it was a moment of cloud nine, there was a kind of allegations put forth by Pa. Ranjith. He openly said, “When a film like Salman Khan’s Tiger Zinda Hai has been selected for the screening, why not Kaala. In fact, this Hindi film didn’t even get any critical acclaims, but Kaala had made it through a commendable zone of appreciations.
Pariyerum Perumal has its premise set against the backdrops of a Southern Tamil Nadu territory, where an aspiring law student from a community is being oppressed and humiliated by the upper-class community.
