Perazhagan Movie Story:
The movie was actually translated from malayalam movie, Kunchikoonan. The story revolves around Chinna(Surya), a village youth who is sympathized for his looks but is lauded for selfless service to others. He covers up his handicap with humor. Unmindful of his looks, Chinna goes around looking for a suitable bride with the help of his friend (Vivek). Brushing aside many an insult hurled at him, he carries on.
In contrast to him is Karthik (Surya again), a rough college student who loves his classmate (Jyothika). She comes across Chinna, who assures her that he would get her married to the man of her heart but she gets killed in a fracas involving a gangster. Meanwhile, the hunchback Surya comes across an orphaned poor blind girl (played by Jyothika again). He wins over heart by helping her out.
Thanks to his efforts, she gains her vision (the eyes of deceased Jyothika are transplanted on her). This results in a tussle between both Suryas as to whom Jyothika belongs to now. However, fearing his looks, the hunchback Surya decides to leave way for the other. But fate has different things for him.
