RA.ONE is a Hindi language film subtitled in English. It is a digital re-working of the Ramayana mythology in which a computer game character takes on physical form to destroy a player who nearly beat him. The film was classified '12' for moderate violence.

The BBFC's Guidelines at '12A'/'12' state 'Moderate violence is allowed but should not dwell on detail. There should be no emphasis on injuries or blood, but occasional gory moments may be permitted if justified by the context'. The film includes several scenes of moderate violence, albeit overwhelmingly in fantastical action style, with impossible acrobatics, use of energy blasts and superhuman abilities. Examples of such violence include sight of a woman being used as a living weapon to attack a gang of bad guys, acrobatic kicks and punches as two computer generated characters fight, the destruction of one character by the other in an explosion, and a head butt with metallic clang adding to the impression of impact. The strongest scenes include brief sight of blood on a metallic disc impaled on a woman’s throat and a human character being killed by an energy blast which sends him flying into the windscreen of his car. Although this film does contain some hand-to-hand fight sequences, with some crunchy sound effects, the focus is always on fantastical action rather than on detail of blood or injury.

The film also contains some mild language (‘saala’, ‘shit’, ‘crap’) and mild sexual references (to condoms and a comic scene in which a character accidentally grabs a woman’s clothed breast).
