Alternate Versions

The UK theatrical release was cut, after the uncut version initially received a '15' classification from the UK censor board; the distributors opted to remove moments of strong violence (shootings, stabbings, a pole being used to dislocate a man's arm and sight of blood dripping from a character's mouth) along with a scene of torture in which a man's fingers are extracted below screen were removed. This cut version was re-classified '12A' and was released into UK cinemas, however the film was later released uncut on DVD with a '15' rating. See more »

High Energy Action Movie. Thuppakki is an action thriller movie revolving around a youngster from a Mumbai-based Tamil family and his decisions he takes after his life undergoes a sudden turn. Kajal Aggarwal has a meaty role in Thuppakki. Her role is not limited to be an arm-candy of Vijay in Thuppakki. Well, she will be seen in the role of a boxer in the film. She plays the role named Nisha, an iron-willed girl. However, the actress will also be seen in glamorous avatars. Jagadeesh is a carefree youngster whose life takes a jolting turn and he is faced with crucial decisions.Vijay's costumes are perfect.Well set trailer .
