Alternate Versions

The UK release was censored Upon a formal classification the film received a '15' uncut for moments of strong bloody violence and threat. The distributors unsatisfied with this rating resubmitted the film in an edited version (with 52 seconds of footage removed following BBFC advice). The board still found these cuts inadequate and requested that a further 5 minutes be removed. The distributor agreed to these terms and the edited version of the film was classified '12A' for moderate violence and threat. The cuts made in the UK removed the following:
  • sight of bloodshed during gun battles, and more detailed blood spurts as characters are shot
  • crunchier audio as bones are broken
  • sight of a pistol being rammed into a character's mouth
  • sight of a cleaver being rammed into a character's head just off-camera
  • a scene of strong threat in which a family are forced to drink poison by villains who threaten to kill them with knives.
as well as altering another scene of threat in which a child is threatened with a hot iron; which was replaced with a gun in the censored version; the filmmakers also removed a single clear use of strong language 'f**k' although the BBFC posed no objection to this. See more »

Arrambam = No Exit From BLOCKBUSTER "Crowd Puller"
4 November 2013 | by sarancoolbreezeSee all my reviews


ARRAMBAM a blockbuster script with mass crowd puller Thala,attractive Arya.I think Vishnuvardhan made this movie in full cool with confident and made this movie a big Blockbuster . Garenty that a big action sorry stylish Action of Ajith,Fun of Arya,rude action of Nayanthara,Attractive Tapsee and om Prakash cinematography capturing perfectly every thing.


The story star starts with Thala bombing various building in Mumbai city who comes out like a terrorist then it is carried out by Arya who is a Hacker.college comedy of Arya as a Fat boy worked out. Ultimate makes Arya to do his jobs in a gun point. unsatisfied Arya traps Ajith to Mumbai police are the first half with good flow.Then stars the second half which decides the ARRAMBAM as a blockbuster


There are plenty of Scene which makes us to go for the movie for second time.The opening of Thala was normal,the notable thing is Thala dance in first song where a man with these many operation,accident had made it with full energy(great).Thala boat ride "can any hero in Tolly,Bolly even Holly"repeat it today even young Sixpacked hero's says i cant risk my life for a bike ride with rope all over their body you may say Thala is a race so he may do it then u must be accepting the fact that "he is a fearless mass hero".In one scene When the Ducati bike was shown the whole crowd went up but it was a normal ride like other hero's even though the whole crowd went up till the end only because it is Thala.

Director loved Thala Soo Soo mush he brought every thing out of him but with 4 to 5 risk scene which was "Marana Mass" I thought how could Thala do it "Thala has every thing money good wife and family" but takes a risk shot does every thing for fans but do not want to have a fan followers.What is this Thala? Every day fans will be increasing for u Thala But we doesn't want you to risk too mush.

Cinema Psychos

Not only because of Thala the story made with every other character is also engaging. Tapsee was top in acting.There was more Editing mistakes and even the rerecording in some scenes were too bad.For those who want to learn from movie you can learn how to engage the crowds and the beautiful CG work in song and in action scene.Other than that this is a normal Blockbuster movie which comes out every year for nearly a Decade which has no formula why it is Hit.You would be the only persons in theater thinking that am i sitting in a Blockbuster movie.This movie is only for Public

ARRAMBAM is a movie which cannot be stopped from its Blockbuster.But it is not the new beginning For THALA,Vishnuvardhan or TAMIL CINEMA.
