Film and Publications Board (FPB) Report (SA)

GenreDrama
LanguageStrong and frequent language is used as in war conditions, to demean and belittle people. It is hostile, crude and sustained throughout. The language of prejudice is mitigated as hate speech on the grounds of having historical, aesthetic, dramatic, educational and public interest merit. This is not suitable for younger children who might see this kind of language as normalized and who may try to emulate it.
NudityNone
SexNone
ViolenceFrequent and strong impact violence, includes realistic, callous, merciless, ruthless acts of terrorism and war with people indiscriminately shooting randomly in the streets and in the Hotel Mumbai. The events of the film are historically correct to the circumstances in November 2008. There is bloodshed, fear, hostage, torture and both emotional and physical violence. Violence is mitigated as acts of hate due to the public interest merit of the production. However, this is not suitable for younger children as it may be disturbing, distressing, psychologically and morally harmful for them.
PrejudiceModerate and frequent, it is sustained throughout and seen through the elements of language of prejudice as well as the acts of violence against certain groups. Prejudice is thematic and true to the event that took place in Mumbai on 26 November 2008. The language and acts of violence are mitigated as hate speech on the grounds of having historical, aesthetic, dramatic, educational and public interest merit. This is not suitable for younger children as it might cause intolerance amongst race relations in certain groups.
BlasphemyNone
Drug abuseNone
