THE RELUCTANT FUNDAMENTALIST is an English language drama thriller about a young Pakistani man who goes to America to join the white collar elite, only to question his beliefs, relationships and loyalties in the years after the events of 9/11.

Language

The film contains several uses of strong language. Most of these are in English ('f**k' and 'motherf**ker'), but there are also a few Urdu language equivalents. Milder terms include 'ass', 'bullshit', 'bastard' and 'shit'.

The film also contains some moderate violence and injury detail, including brief video images being watched on a screen showing terrorists striking an American character on the back with a rifle butt. Towards the climax of the film there is some gun violence, which results in brief sight of injury to two characters who are caught up in a street conflict. There is also a gory image showing a person with a slashed throat, seen by various characters on their phones.

A scene of moderate sex is both brief and does not feature any nudity.
