Directed by debutant Mari Selvaraj and produced by Pa Ranjith, Pariyerum Perumal (The God On A Horse) centres on Perumal (Kathir), a young low-caste man who faces severe discrimination at his law college in Tirunelveli, especially when he befriends his upper-caste classmate Jyothi Mahalakshmi (Anandhi). The film also stars Yogi Babu and G Marimuthu.

Selvaraj, an aspiring lawyer-turned-filmmaker, drew from his experiences in Tirunelveli while writing Pariyerum Perumal. “The characters, including that of Perumal, have been constructed combining many such people that I’ve met and observed,” he said. “I drew a basic sketch of the story and let these characters then interact and live with each other.”

Pariyerum Perumal turned out to be a dream debut for Selvaraj. He had full creative freedom over the project, including the casting. He always wanted Kathir to play Perumal. “I wanted faces that reflected a kind of simplicity and innocence, and Kathir and Anandhi fit that description perfectly,” Selvaraj said. “Once these characters were fixed, we conducted workshops for them, especially Kathir. The rest were chosen through auditions.”
