Injury detail

In one scene, a fakir pushes a sword through his own neck, and the tip emerges from the other side. Following this, the man stumbles and his neck is bandaged. However, injury detail is limited.

In another scene, a man dances on sword edges; however, there is no injury detail.

In one scene, a man in brown-face make-up sings a song. However, this reflects outdated stereotyping, and is not endorsed by the film as a whole.

There is footage of a lion and tiger fighting in a pit. However, the scene does not appear to be organised or directed for the purposes of film-making. There are also images of a dead tiger.

There is footage of police officers with batons raised charging at crowds.

There are also scenes in which men smoke, which reflect the time period in which they were filmed.
