Yet another brilliant movie from Mari Selvaraj. Unlike his previous film, Pariyerum PerumalPariyerum Perumal
ജാതി പറയുന്ന, ജാതീയത പറയുന്ന സിനിമയാണ് പരിയേറും പെരുമാൾ. കേന്ദ്രകഥാപാത്രത്തിന്റെ പേരു തന്നെയാണ് സിനിമക്കും. അതൊരു ‘സാമി പേരാണെങ്കിൽ’ പോലും ആ പേരിന്റെ അർത്ഥമെന്തെന്ന് ആ സമൂഹത്തിൽ ഉള്ള മറ്റുള്ളവർക്ക്...
this movie has fewer symbols and a more thriller narration, with clear politics. Mari doesn't hide his political stance; it's evident in every aspect, from character names to occupations. The use of black and white shots in the movie was also interesting.

I personally liked Udhayanidhi Stalin's portrayal. Though his performance was average, it was refreshing to see a politician (MLA, Minister, and Son-of-CM) in a caste-politics themed movie.
