Falam (Falam Chin), also known as Baro Halam, is a Kukish language of Burma and India.

Dialects are divergent. Zanniat and Chorei may be distinct languages, and there are difficulties in intelligibility with Tapong. Rupini and Koloi are also reported to be quite different.[1] Dialects once misleadingly called Southern Luhupa are actually Northern Kukish, and evidently Falam.[3]
