lami is a 2016 Indian Tamil period drama film directed by J. Julian Prakash, based on the backdrop of Jallikattu. It features Yuvan and Anu Krishna in the lead roles, with Akhil and Ravi Mariya in supporting roles, and Kishore in a guest appearance. Ilami had a low profile theatrical release on 25 November 2016.

Julian Prakash revealed that he was inspired to make a film about vadam jallikattu as a result of his fascination with the sport, while growing up as a youngster in Madurai and called for more Tamil people to celebrate their culture. While rookie actors Yuvan and Akhil were cast in the film in the leading and lead negative roles, Anu Krishna, previously seen in Kaththi (2014), was signed on to portray the titular character.

To resemble scenes from the year 1715, director Prakash and his team constructed a huge set in Talakona, a forested area in Andhra Pradesh. This came after the team trialled a smaller set at Theni, near Madurai, in Tamil Nadu, but found it difficult to find any place in the state that was untouched by 21st century development.To prepare for his role, actor Yuvan bulked up and grew long hair, to resemble a tribal settler from the 18th century.
