Per Sollum Pillai (English: The child who says the name) is a 1987 Tamil-language Indian feature film directed by SP. Muthuraman, starring Kamal Haasan, Radhika, Manorama, K.R.Vijaya and Raveendran. The movie completed 100 days and was a hit at the box office. The movie is a remake of Padikkadha Medhai of the same writer.

Per Sollum Pillai has Kamal Haasan as an orphan, who is adopted by a wealthy family. He gets adopted into the family when he saves the entire family from being deliberately poisoned by a miscreant. K.R.Vijaya, the mother of the family, raises him as one of the family even though others outside the family see him as a servant. Kamal helps to run the family smoothly and looks after his step-parents, brothers and sisters like his own.

He remains faithful and grateful to his step-parents for adopting him, an orphan, as their own son. Except for his step-parents and his sister, the other members of his family are jealous of the position his mother gives him in the family. Kamal's step-brothers are pleasure-seeking and lazy and want to live an easy life surviving on their mother's earnings. They also try to exploit a female worker in their house Radhika, whose mother Manorama is the cook of the house.

Kamal intervenes whenever his step-brothers attempt to commit mischief in the family and thwarts all their plans. He tries to advise them to be resourceful but they hate him for that. They also cannot stand it when their mother sides their step-brother in all her decisions.

Kamal also saves his step-sister Ramya Krishnan from being exploited by a rich smuggler's son. Due to his carnal nature, the smuggler's son expresses his wish to marry Kamal's step-sister to his father. So the smuggler Malaysia Vasudevan comes to K.R.Vijaya's house seeking her daughter's hand in marriage for his son.

The smuggler feels jaded when Kamal convinces his step-mother to refuse her daughter's hand in marriage to his son. The smuggler becomes an enemy to the family and swears to take revenge for being insulted by K.R.Vijaya. So he hatches a plot in conjunction with Kamal's brother-in-law, a corrupt government official Goundamani to destroy Kamal's family.

The smuggler plants illegal explosives in K.R.Vijaya's fireworks factory to humiliate her,to get her arrested by the police, but Kamal comes to her rescue and takes the crime upon himself and goes to jail in her place. He later looks after her when she falls sick when her own sons don't care about her and waste their money in gambling.Instigated by a plot hatched by their brother-in-law, Kamal's step-brothers revolt and take over the factory that their mother controls. They then force Kamal out of the house. Meanwhile, Radhika falls in love with Kamal due to his truthful nature.

Kamal's step-brothers make poor business decisions and ruin the prosperous business that their mother had struggled to build. Kamal meanwhile, through his hard-work and resourcefulness builds his own fireworks factory. He comes to the rescue of his mother again when his step-brothers try to forcible marry their only sister to the enemy's son to cover up their losses. He pays for the losses his brothers had incurred and saves his step-sister and step-parents. He then adopts his step-mother as his own mother and makes her the proprietor of his factory.

In the final scene, the smuggler tries to forcibly get his son married to Vijaya's daughter and also murder her sons and Kamal. Kamal again comes to their rescue and saves the day. But Vijaya is fatally wounded by the smuggler and dies in Kamal's arms.

The movie ends with Kamal's daughter ( whom Kamal considers as his own mother that he lost but is now re-born as his daughter, and names her after his mother) celebrating her birthday with the entire family re-united with Kamal as the head of the family.
