UDTA PUNJAB is a Punjabi drama following several characters whose lives are affected in different ways by drug addiction.

Language

Frequent strong language, including uses of 'f**k' in spoken English and in English subtitles, and uses of a Punjabi term meaning 'sisterf**ker'. Further, milder, terms include 'shit', 'bitch' and 'asshole'.

Violence

Several scenes of strong violence, including a bloody stab to a character's neck and several bloody shootings.

Threat

Several scenes of strong threat, including a young woman being held prisoner by men who forcibly inject her with heroin. It is implied that the men rape the woman while she is drugged, although sexual violence is not shown.

Drugs

Frequent scenes of drug misuse, including people snorting lines of cocaine, snorting heroin, smoking heroin from foil, cooking up and injecting heroin, and injecting another opiate. There are frequent verbal references to drug misuse, including in the songs of a rock star character who is also an addict. While some of his lyrics appear to promote drug misuse, the film as a whole does not. Instead, the film demonstrates how lives are destroyed by drug addiction.

Further issues include some moderate verbal sex references.

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