Recovery proceedings are on at the house of a poor farmer who has defaulted on an agricultural loan. Arguing vociferously on behalf of the farmer is Prakasan, an ordinary citizen who takes his social responsibilities seriously. He is a farmer himself, as well as promoter of the cultural heritage of the land. He is also a political idealist who gets involved in every issue that crops up in the village. But he is misunderstood and ostracized by society. Still unmarried at forty, deserted by the woman he loved, estranged from friends who supported him, isolated by a society for which he gave his life-blood, bereft of a sister of whom he was very fond and burdened with having to take care of his mother who has become mentally unstable, Prakasan is disillusioned.

The story of Prakasan’s life runs parallel to that of Karigurukkal who is dispatched to Puliyoorkunnu in order to relieve the ruler of fear and anxiety, and to relieve the ruled of mass hysteria. When he returns as Thondachan wearing tiger skin, custom required that his wife Vellachi should throw dirty water on his face and beat him with a broom. Only then will he get back his humanness. His wife fails to do this and he is condemned to return to the forests.

The story of Pulijanmam is based on the Sahithya Academy award and Sangeeth Natak Academy award winning novel of the same name written by N. Prabhakaran. This is the second directorial venture from Priyanandan, whose debut film Neithukaaran won state and national awards. Murali plays the roles of Prakasan and Karigurukkal.
