ANBANAVAN ASARADHAVAN ADANGADHAVAN is a Tamil language action comedy in which an assassin falls in love.

Violence

A man is shot in the head, resulting in aftermath sight of a bloody bullet wound. There are occasional stylised fight scenes featuring heavy punches and kicks. Several men are stabbed and one is set on fire, all without graphic detail. In a comedy sequence, people throw bricks at a man who is tied to a tree, leaving blood all over his forehead.

In one scene it is strongly implied that a woman has been raped and that the rapist has been blackmailing her by threatening to release video footage of the attack.

Discrimination

There are multiple casual uses of the discriminatory term 'retard'. One man refers to another as a 'gay doofus'.

Other issues include frequent mild sex references. In one scene, clothes are shown strewn over the floor of a hotel room while sexual-sounding moaning is heard from the bed. It is soon revealed that the moaning noises are actually sounds of struggle during an arrest. In a comic sequence, a man considers suicide but another man manages to persuade him to change his mind.
