KOMBAN is a Tamil language action drama about a young man who uses violence to solve problems in his village until his attitude is challenged by his family.

Violence

There are several scenes of moderate violence as a man defeats gangs of men with punches and kicks. Blades are occasionally flourished in threat but rarely used. One man is stabbed below the edge of the frame with a metal pole and a small amount of blood flies up in the air. Another man is cut across the stomach with brief sight of the bloody wound. One character is also set on fire and runs around in flames, but there are no visible injuries.

Other issues include some obscured bad language which remains unidentifiable on the audio and subtitles.

Cuts information

Distributor chose to cut bloody images of a man's arm being severed by a boomerang in order to achieve a 12A classification. Cuts made in accordance with BBFC policy and Guidelines. A 15 uncut was available.
