PADMAAVAT is a Hindi language drama, based on a 16th century epic poem that is considered a work of fiction, in which a Sultan leads an invasion to capture a Rajput Queen.


There are frequent scenes of moderate violence, including slashings, stabbings and decapitations. Other moments include a man being suffocated and soldiers being shot down with arrows.

Injury detail

There is occasional injury detail during battle sequences, including some bloodied corpses shown on the battlefield.

There are several references to the historical practice of self-immolation by widows. One scene shows a large group of women walking towards a large fire, but no further detail is shown. The film includes a disclaimer stressing that it does not endorse this practice in any way.

Mild sex references include a scene in which a man tells his wife to make "unabashed love" to him. In another scene, a man lies in bed with a woman.

There is use of very mild bad language ('God').
