Boologam is a Tamil action movie directed by N. Kalyanakrishnan and produced by Aascar Films. It stars Jayam Ravi as a boxer and Trisha Krishnan in the lead roles. The movie is inspired from the life of a real life Asian boxing champion named Madhan.
Jayam Ravi agreed terms to star in the film in August 2010, shortly after he had committed to star in Engeyum Kadhal and Aadhi Baghavan. During the making of the Peranmai, an assistant director to S. P. Jananathan, Kalyanakrishnan, had narrated the story of the film and Jayam Ravi agreed to give priority dates for the film.However the delays in production of the former two films resulted in the postponement of the shoot of Boologam, as his character in Aadhi Bhagavan required him to sport a beard, stopping him from working on the films simultaneously. In July 2011, it was reported that Jayam Ravi underwent a special training course in boxing for his role as a boxer with professional athlete, Prasad, overlooking his progress.
