MR FRAUD is a subtitled Malayalam language action drama, about a master thief who sets up an elaborate heist to steal the treasure from a palace vault.


There are several set-piece fight scenes, in which punches and kicks are exchanged, and guns and knives are also used. Although the fighting is intense, and features some heavy impacts, it does not dwell on detail; bloody injury is seen only occasionally.


There are undetailed references to a young girl being raped; in a flashback to the incident, the girl is shown being dragged into a wood by a gang of men. However, the sexual assault is only established and not shown.

The film also contains mild bad language, such as 'hell', 'bloody' and bastards'.
