PADMAVATI is a Hindi language epic drama in which a Sultan leads an invasion to capture a Rajput Queen.

Violence

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 "Jauhar", an old Hindu custom meaning self-immolation. A scene shows a large group of women walking towards a large fire, but no further detail is shown.

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').
