SONNAA PURIYAADHU is a Tamil language romantic comedy drama. It follows a young couple, Shiva and Anjali, who are intent on staying single despite family pressures to get married.


The brief mild violence first occurs during a scene in which two voice over artists are seen dubbing a martial arts movie into their own language. As they record the new audio track, there is sight of two combatants on screen engaged in hand-to-hand combat. This includes a variety of blows, including a double chop to a man's stomach that results in him falling to his death. The on screen injuries inflicted during this battle are restricted to brief sight of a little blood on the face of one of the fighters. In another sequence, a character has a comic dream in which he has a spike pushed through his tongue during a religious ceremony. Again, sight of injury is brief and limited to a little blood visible on the man's tongue as the spike pierces it.


There is also a single mild sex reference when a woman threatens a man after they wake up in bed together. Although the couple are fully clothed, the woman is initially suspicious of him and says that he will be arrested if she tells the police that she has been raped. This is played out in the context of the two characters in question being set up by supposed friends, who decided to spike their drinks. There is no question any such sexual assault occurred - the man is entirely innocent, and the audience is aware of this at the time.

This work contains flashing images which may affect viewers who are susceptible to photosensitive epilepsy.
