Tamizhariyum Perumal (Tamil: தமிழறியும் பெருமாள்) is a Tamil language film starring V. A. Chellappa, M. G. Ramachandran and M. R. Santhanalakshmi in the lead roles. The film was released in 1942.
The story was concocted from the tale of Kalidasa, Sanskrit poet and dramatist.
Lyrics were penned by Udumalai Narayana Kavi. No one was given credit as music composer. Saraswathi Stores orchestra provided the music for songs sung by the artistes. The song "Kalviyai pol" sung by V. A. Chellappa was a popular number.
In spite of good photography and music Tamizhariyum Perumal was not a commercial success. In 2011, film historian Randor Guy said it would be "remembered for the impressive sets, cinematography and pleasing music and being an early film of the later day icon and cult figure M.G. Ramachandran."
