SAJJAN SINGH RANGROOT is a Punjabi language war drama in which a Sikh soldier serves in the British Indian Army during World War I.

Violence

Scenes of moderate battle violence include non-graphic shootings, stabbings and explosions. A man is beaten with the butts of rifles. There is a scene of hand-to-hand combat featuring heavy kicks and punches which result in moderately bloody aftermath detail. There is also a brief verbal reference to female prisoners being forced to wear their dead children's dismembered body parts around their necks.

Injury detail

A severed head is shown briefly in silhouette after an off-screen killing, without gory detail. Other scenes show battlefields strewn with dead bodies, some of which are bloodied.

There are occasional scenes of racist behaviour when white soldiers mock and mistreat their Indian counterparts. The work as a whole does not condone discriminatory attitudes or behaviour. Infrequent mild bad language includes 'shit' and 'bloody'.

Cuts information

Company chose to remove moments of strong violence in order to achieve a 12A rating. Cuts made in accordance with BBFC Guidelines and policy. An uncut 15 classification was available
