HONEY BEE - ITS TRIPPING... is a Malayalam drama about a woman who elopes with her lover and the pair are hunted down by her disapproving brothers.

Language

The film contains two clear uses of strong language ('F**k'), neither of which is spoken aggressively.

Violence

The film contains a number of set-piece fight sequences that feature hand-to-hand combat, blows with sticks and knives, and shootings. These sequences are highly choreographed and do not dwell on the details of violence or focus on occasional bloody injuries.

Smoking

The film contains scenes of cigarette smoking but also carries a strong anti-smoking warning at the beginning and after the interval. Whenever characters smoke or consume alcohol excessively a caption appears on screen giving a similar warning about the dangers of such activities.

The film also contains milder language such as 'God', 'bloody', 'bugger', 'bastard', 'son of a bitch' and 'son of a whore', as well as infrequent mild sex references.

Cuts information

The distributor chose to remove scenes of soft drug use and strong violence (in this case, a bloody stabbing) in order to achieve a 12A classification. Cuts made in accordance with the BBFC's Guidelines and policy. An uncut 15 was available.
