Pariyerum Perumal is being well appreciated not just by the movie buffs but those in the film industry as well. Top actors and film personalities are heaping praises on the film with many taking to the social networking sites to urge others to watch the film in theatres.

Recently, director Vignesh Shivan had tweeted requesting his stars from Bollywood to watch the film. He had tweeted, “Dear @aamir_khan & @SrBachchan While we all are going to enjoy #ThugsOfHindostan soon in TamilNadu..We request U to watch & support a gem of a film called #Pariyerumperumaal which speaks about humanity& the immortal inequality, made by @beemji , @mari_selvaraj @Music_Santhosh.”

Further, actor Vijay had also promised the filmmakers that he'd watch the film soon. He is reported to have expressed keen interest in watching Pariyerum Perumal after hearing positive reviews about it.

In an interview to Behindwoods, actor Kathir had said, "Actor Vijay had called me recently to congratulate me on the movie. It is not everyday that this happens. He said he is very happy for the whole team to come up with such a product. Not all films are spoken about like this. Since he is busy with Sarkar, he said he'll watch the movie after the audio launch which is happening tomorrow but will surely catch it in theatres after that. It feels so surreal. The feeling is something like all Vijay fans coming together and wishing me. Goosebumps. "

DMK President MK Stalin has also watched the movie at a private screening on Friday. He was quoted by Deccan Chronicle saying that “Had my father, late Kalaignar, watched Pariyerum.....he would have heaped high praise for Pariyan. After a long time, I am watching a brilliant movie”. He was accompanied by his wife Durga Stalin, SonUdhayanidhi and his wife Kiruthiga.

He wrote, "Just watched the film Pariyerum Perumal, by @mari_selvaraj produced by @beemji.A wonderful film portraying reality without compromising on craft & entertainment. A slap on the face for the caste-centric mindset (sic)."

Directed by Mari Selvaraj, the film has been bankrolled by Pa Ranjith under his banner Neelam Productions. Santhosh Narayanan has composed music for this venture, while Sridhar has cranked the camera and Selva RK had edited Pariyerum Perumal.
