Violence & Gore

  • Towards the beginning of the film, Bairavaa (Vijay) gets into an comic fight with a group of thugs in a sequence involving a game of cricket, during this scene several thugs are hit in the face using both a cricket bat and ball. However the scene itself is overall comic in nature with the all the impacts being stylised in nature and plenty of humour which is the main focus throughout the scene.
  • During one scene a man is slashed across the arm by a gang of rowdies, this results in a small splash of blood briefly visible on screen.
  • Several of the lead antagonists are introduced in a flashback sequence, this depicts them engaging in various criminal activities this includes portrayal of innocent characters being killed (mostly implied), the strongest element of this scene includes a very brief freeze frame of a stabbing which occurs without strong visible detail.
  • Bairavaa gets into a fight with the lead antagonist's goons in a bus terminal, this scene includes sight of heavy punches, kicks and blows all of which are portrayed within a highly stylised and unrealistic manner.
  • The film's main climatic fight sequence takes place in a construction yard during a fight between the protagonist (Bairavaa) and a gang of assassins, throughout this scene thugs are stabbed and slashed multiple times with various types of weapons such as of knifes and an axe while the scene is rapidly edited with the impacts occurring quickly there is sight of bloody moments throught this scene, however the strongest moment in the fight occurs as a thug is stabbed in the throat resulting in a bloody stab wound on his neck as the blades removed.
  • There are action sequences throughout in which characters fight, sometimes using weapons such as axes, knives and guns.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • As part of a prank two characters use nitrous oxide to cause someone to laugh uncontrollably

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • Despite the occasional instances of bloody violence, the film is much less intense in comparison to some of Vijay's previous film's any moment of violence/threat is always countered by the film's fun and over the top tone with the central focus being placed on romance, comedy and stylism over violence and intensity
  • There are some intense sequences, such as when the protagonist is doused with petrol and chased around a village and as the protagonist threatens a corrupt teacher by placing a sharp pencil in close proximity to his eye however no violence occurs
