Parinamam movie tells the age old issue of loneliness and redundancy among the aged. Balakrishna Marar faces callous treatment from his family after his retirement. Parallel to his story is that of the mentally disturbed and lonely former judge Damodaran Nambeeshan, who goes to Kashi in search of peace. There are five other senior citizens whose problems form the basis of the film.
The movie is about all these good people whose lives fall apart when they grow old. They lose everything they hold dear and start feeling rejected, as if they are burdens on their family and society.
