Mari Selvaraj’s directorial debut, Pariyerum Perumal, is set to release worldwide on September 28. The announcement was made by Pa Ranjith on his Twitter page on Saturday.

The film’s audio will be released on September 9. Produced by Pa Ranjith’s Neelam Productions, the film stars Kathir, Anandhi, Yogi Babu and Lijeesh. The film’s trailer, which was released on June 4, has created a buzz among moviegoers.

The trailer also explains the film’s title, Pariyerum Perumal. Actor Kathir who plays the protagonist, is named Pariyerum Perumal, meaning the 'god who mounts the horse'. The title therefore suggests that the film will have strong political undertones.

It was earlier announced that Kathir will play the role of a lawyer in this film. The characters also sport a heavy Tirunelveli accent. 

The first single from the film was released on March 4. Titled ‘Karuppi En Karuppi', the song has been composed and performed by music director Santhosh Narayanan. The song refers to Karuppi, a dog that was been killed in caste-based clashes.

Produced by Pa Ranjith’s Neelam Productions, the film was announced in December 2016. Neelam Productions produced Malini Jeevarathinam's documentary Ladies and Gentlewomen. He has also been instrumental in organising the Casteless Collective, a music band. 

Director Mari has authored a Tamil short story titled Thaamirabharniyil Kollapadathavargal (Those Who Weren’t Killed in Thamirabharani) and a fiction series in Ananda Vikatan called Marakave Ninaikeren (I Hope to Forget). In an interview, Mari shared that director Pa Ranjith got in touch with him after reading his writings.
