AADUPULIYATTAM is a Malayalam language horror drama about a man haunted by a vengeful spirit from the past.

Violence

There are scenes of moderate violence in which characters are attacked, sometimes with weapons, and strike back with heavy punches and kicks. The fighting is highly stylised and lacking in strong detail.

Threat

There are scenes in which characters are threatened by both humans and supernatural forces. Some of the threat is with weapons, whilst ghostly presences create situations in which characters feel menaced. Examples of this include an unseen presence dragging a man across a floor and throwing him out of a house, and a young girl possessed by a ghost fashioning a noose from a bedsheet and attempting to hang her mother. There is also brief sight of a decaying corpse. The horror and threat in these scenes are not unduly sustained.

Cuts information

Distributor chose to remove scenes of strong violence (in this case, a woman cutting her throat and a man being slashed by a sword), and strong horror images (in this case, a decaying corpse), in order to achieve a 12A classification. Cuts made in accordance with BBFC Guidelines and policy. An uncut 15 was available.
