VARATHAN is a Malayalam language thriller in which a couple return to India from Dubai and are harassed and intimidated by local men working on their property.

Violence

Strong violence includes a sustained sequence in which a man uses various improvised weapons - meat cleavers, homemade explosives and a shotgun - to defend his home from a violent gang. Much of the violence results in bloody detail.

Threat

A woman is run off a road and abducted by a group of men; it is implied she was raped.

There are verbal references to sexual violence and uses of mild bad language ('shit', 'bloody').
