SPECIAL 26 is a subtitled Hindi language heist movie. A gang of four con men operate throughout India, posing as detectives and tax inspectors and robbing corrupt politicians and dishonest businessmen. It is rated PG for infrequent mild violence and mild language.

Mild violence amounts to little more than the occasional face slap. During the course of a chase sequence two police detectives are pushed against a car and into the shuttered frontage of a shop. As the suspect attempts to escape in a three-wheeled taxi, the vehicle is kicked and knocked over and he emerges from the wreckage with an abrasion on his cheek. When he is eventually cornered on a rooftop the suspect is slapped across the face. The blow knocks him from the high roof but he lands on the roof of a car parked below and is unharmed.

The mild language in SPECIAL 26, mostly delivered in English, includes the terms 'bastards', 'bums', 'god' and 'screw up'.

PG stands for Parental Guidance. A PG film should not disturb a child aged around eight or older. However, parents are advised to consider whether the content may upset younger or more sensitive children.
