CHARLIE is a Malayalam language romantic drama about a young woman who seeks escape from an arranged marriage by following the trail of an enigmatic and benevolent young man.

Violence

There is a scene of moderate violence as two men fight during an argument. The men exchange several crunchy punches and kicks and both men are slammed against walls. There are also a few moments of moderate threat as knives are held at people's throats during arguments.

Sex

One scene obliquely implies that a father is giving or selling his daughter to another man for sexual reasons. The young girl is seen looking scared as her father tells her to go into a room with a 'good uncle' but another man intervenes and attacks both the father and the potential abuser before she can come to any harm.

There are also comic references to a thief covering up a naked sleeping man sleeping whose wife might be scared by his 'thing'.

Suicide

Two men interrupt a young woman as she prepares to kill herself. She puts her head through a noose and steps off a chair but is immediately caught by one of the men and freed from the noose. She is subsequently given a new reason to embrace life.

Other issues include some mild bad language, with use of 'hell', 'bastard', 'pissing' and 'shit'.

Various characters smoke cigarettes.
