THUPPARIVAALAN is a Tamil language action crime thriller in which a detective uncovers a murder conspiracy.

Language

There is infrequent use of strong language ('f**k'). Milder terms include 'whore', 'piss', 'bloody', 'bastard', 'bugger', 'damn' and 'jerk'.

Violence

People are shot and stabbed, resulting in moderate bloody detail. A bound man is beaten with sticks; there are smears of blood over his bare torso. A man is drowned during a fight, with minimal visual detail. A young boy is threatened with a knife. There are also occasional scenes of stylised hand-to-hand fighting featuring heavy blows.

Sex

Staging a murder to look like a heart attack, a woman puts Viagra in the dead man's mouth. The man is found naked, with a pillow masking his genitals and his underwear draped over his head. In another scene a man hears sounds of sexual moaning and pulls down a sheet to find a man and woman in bed together.

Other issues include brief injury detail after a man and a young boy are killed by electrocution.

Cuts information

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