JILLA is a Tamil action drama about a powerful crime family in which a bitter conflict is sown when the son goes against his father and decides to stand up for the law.

Violence

There are several highly stylised fight scenes in which blows are exchanged. Although the violence is often sustained it does not carry strong detail with the focus being on the choreographed action.

Injury detail

There is occasional bloody injury detail in the aftermath of the fighting, as well as in a scene in which an explosion kills and injures a number of innocent people, but this is not dwelt upon.

Threat

Weapons are wielded in a threatening manner.

There are also infrequent mild sex references and very mild bad language such as 'god', 'moron', 'hell' and 'damn'.

Precuts information

During post-production, the distributor sought and was given advice on how to secure the desired classification. Following this advice, certain changes were made prior to submission

Note: The following text may contain spoilers

This work was originally seen for advice in an unfinished form. The company was advised that the film was likely to receive a 15 certificate but that their preferred 12A classification could be achieved by making a number of cuts to reduce the bloody violence. When the finished version of the film was submitted for formal classification, edits had been made to reduce sequences of bloody violence, including blood sprays from both bullet impacts and machete blows. The formal submission was consequently rated 12A.
