JOKER is a Hindi language comedy about an scientist with an interest in extra terrestrial life who becomes involved in a scheme to create publicity for his home village by faking signs of alien activity. It is rated PG for mild language and threat.
There are some moments of mild threat, such as when some reporters are unsettled by echoing screams in an asylum. Later, the local police point their guns at some of the villagers who are pretending to be aliens. However, the tone of the film is comic.
In one scene, a reporter is heard commenting, "They may have raped him and let him go", when he sees an American character being freed by the fake aliens. The reference is brief and comic and not elaborated upon.
JOKER also contains some mild bad language, including uses of 'bloody' and 'hell', as well as a brief joke about a character called 'Lord Fockland'.
PG stands for Parental Guidance. A PG film should not disturb a child aged around eight or older. However, parents are advised to consider whether the content may upset younger or more sensitive children.
