A movie inspired by jallikattu

Jallikattu is a valorous sport of Tamils. It is centuries old in this part of the country. And it was held in a different manner. This inspired me to come out with a period film titled Ilami, says filmmaker Julian Prakash.

A former associate of director Ravi Mariya, Julian Prakash has ensured that every thing in this film looks authentic. He chose locations and costumes carefully to reflect the theme of the movie.

He says the movie is set in the year 1700 AD and has Yuvan of Sattai-fame and Anu Krishna in the lead. The actor has undergone a makeover for the film.

'I need to do rigorous workouts to get the beefed-up look of a youngsters who excels in jallikattu, in the 18th century. I have to grow long hair as well,' says Yuvan.

'Music by Srikanth Deva is a major highlight of the movie. He took utmost care to come up with different sounds. Ilami has romance, valour and humour too', says the filmmaker.The music album of Ilami was launched recently.
