SAITHAN is a Tamil language thriller about a man who hears voices which lead him to investigate an unsolved murder.

Threat

Moderate threat as a man experiences hallucinations, including a ghostly woman appearing on his computer and TV screens and a voice telling him to kill himself. However, he is determined to ignore the voice and find a way to stop it without harming himself.

Violence

Moderate violence includes several flashbacks to a murder in which a man is stabbed and there is some blood on his shirt as the knife is pulled out.

Injury detail

Moderate injury detail includes blood coming from the noses of the dead bodies of people who have been killed by overdosing on a new drug, and blood all over the face of a man who has died after being pushed through a window.

Drugs

Several scenes of drug misuse, in the context of a villain illegally testing a new drug on human subjects. The drug is a fictitious substance which people either suck up through a straw or inject. There are very clearly negative consequences from taking it, and most of the test subjects are killed. There are also scenes in which it is implied that a negative character is smoking a joint.

There is also some very mild bad language, including 'what the hell', 'oh my God' and 'damn it'. There are several uses of the discriminatory term 'retard'.
