"Akam" is a 2013 Indian Malayalam film written and directed by Shalini Usha Nair. The film is a contemporary retelling of Malayattoor Ramakrishnan's classic psycho-thriller novel Yakshi. The story is about Srini, a young architect, who starts suspecting that his beautiful wife Ragini is a yakshi.


Akam is one of two genres of Classical Tamil poetry which concerns with the subject of love, the other concerns the subject of war. It can also be translated as eroticism and heroism. It is further subdivided into the five thinai. The type of love was divided into seven ranging from unrequited love to mismatched love.
