Alternate Versions

In the UK, the film was classified in two separate versions. The original cut of the film which was first released in theaters and passed without cuts with a 15 classification for moments of strong violence and drug misuse; and a second version which removed approximately 2 minutes and 8 seconds of footage from the film containing stronger moments of violence and drug misuse, in the hopes of obtaining a 12A classification. However the BBFC stated that in order to obtain their desired 12A classification an additional 37 seconds of cuts were required to make reductions to moments of strong violence and injury detail still present in the film and following these changes this edited version of the film was classified 12A without further cuts for moderate violence and occasional bloody images.

Watch it for Taapsee
30 April 2019 | by ksr-91822See all my reviews

Worth watching for Taapsee. She looked perfect for the role (9/10). Prithviraj is ok. Akshay bad. Script has too many loose ends. Movie not as good as Baby.
