Poverty and social hardships continue striking the family and at one point, Perumal runs away to Trichy and begins working in a hotel. Meanwhile, his family is ostracised by the village and are banned from talking or interacting with anybody else. After saving every single penny he earns for 8 years, Perumal returns to his village, with gifts for each member of his family but is dismayed to find his father doesn't even recognise him. At his village, he falls in love with a distant relative but when his family comes to know of this, they create a huge ruckus and an angry Perumal leaves the village to go back to Trichy. However, when he gets back to work, he finds that he has lost his job. With no where to go, a well-wisher sends him to Chennai, to find work. How does Chennai treatPerumal? What work does he do here? Will he get back his lady love? What happens to his family? Watch Gnana Kirukkan to know...
Director Elayadevan has made a movie on a subject very close to his heart and something that he feels very strongly about - human relationships. Jega and Archana Kavi have given good performances. However, it is Sushmita and Daniel Balaji who steal the show with their mature portrayals. The supporting cast is good and the nativity feel is present in all scenes. However, the movie could have been a little more pacier, as the slow narration tends to drag a little. Taj Noor's BGM and songs are good. The editing could have been crisper.
Thangammal Movie Makers' Gnana Kirukkan tugs at the heartstrings.
