Ilami is the new Tamil film slated for its release on 25th November. Set in the year 1700, the film talks about the ancient sport Jallikattu and stars Yuvan of Sattai fame and Anu Krishna of Kaththi fame in the lead roles. Versatile Kishore and director turned actor S.Ravi Mariya have played the vital characters with Kaloori Akhil portraying the role of the antagonist.
Having assisted Ravi Mariya in his previous films, J.Julian Prakash has made his directorial debut in this period film along with the production works. “Ilami is a period piece, set in the temple town of Madurai -- which even today is the centre of bull fight” is the director's version but the filming took place in pristine locations such as Kurangani and Nerabailu. Srikanth Deva has rendered the compositions for the songs and the BGMs.
Having completed the pre release formalities and the promotional activities, Ilami hits the screens this Friday.
