SATYAGRAHA is a Hindi political drama in which a businessman starts a mass movement to fight against corruption. It is rated 12A for moderate bloody violence and injury detail.
In one scene, a man is run over by a lorry. We see the wheels moving over his body and then we see his bloodied body as he lies in the road. Later in hospital, his body is covered with a sheet but we still see blood on his face. This scene is later repeated, but not in colour and with less detail. In another scene, a man pours petrol over himself and sets himself on fire. He runs around until others put the flames out and we see his charred face as he talks. Later we learn of his death. Towards the end of the film, a character is shot from behind with a small blood spurt, as is another character who has large bloodstains on his clothes. There is also a scene in which a policeman spits some blood from an implied blow and we see other policemen lying dead or unconscious in the street with bloodied faces and hands. We do not see their injuries being inflicted.
The film also contains a threatening reference, 'I'll rip your ass ('ghaand') open'. There are uses of mild language, including 'bloody', 'bitchslap', and a disguised use of 'son of a bitch'.
No-one younger than 12 may see a 12A film in a cinema unless accompanied by an adult. No-one younger than 12 may rent or buy a 12 rated video or DVD.
