MARDAANI is a Hindi crime thriller about a tough female police inspector who tracks down a child sex trafficking operation in the city's underbelly.
Sexual violence occurs as a teenage girl is forced into prostitution. She tries to resist sex, shown by her terrified reaction and brief sight of a man's face and him holding onto her knees. There is strong sexualised threat as several trafficked girls are sprayed with water and told to take off the towels wrapped around their bodies. There is no strong detail of nudity.
There is also strong violence with gunshots causing blood spurts, stabbing, stamping causing bloody injury, and a self inflicted slash to the throat, with sight of blood on face, throat and the surrounding walls.
There are brief scenes of cocaine snorting in a night club and shots of white powder in bags being passed around in a drug den.
There is one use of strong language ('f**k') and Hindi and English uses of moderate and mild bad language, including 'chutiya', 'saala', 'saali', 'bloody', 'bastard', 'swine' and 'shit'. There are sounds of sex taking place behind closed doors before a police raid.
