Prior to the UK release of the film the distributor submitted the film to the BBFC for advice, at which stage the distributor was informed that the film as it stood would be classified 15 uncut. The distributor then sought and was given advice on how to obtain their desired 12A classification and following this the distributor made several cuts to the UK version of the film during the post-production stage; removing moments of strong bloody violence throughout the film (which includes blood spurts from bullet impacts and machete blows, as well as two impaling) following these changes the film received a 12A classification without cuts upon formal submission.

300 films get released every year in Tamilnadu. And another 300 sleep in the box. With stakes so high, its not surprising to see Vijay playing to the gallery. Ironically, it actually has a good screenplay that plays down its values and lets the stars outshine itself. But, that's precisely why it garnered a record-breaking opening.
Jilla has a backbone of a screenplay, with a few backstories thrown in efficiently. However, the typical hero steals the thunder from it and the crowd pulling elements dominate the depth. Director Neason has it in him to weave in both sentiment and entertainment appropriately. However, south being south, his hero steals all the attention from the story Jilla – Earth shattering Opening.
