As Vijay fans are getting restless, counting down each and every day for the release of their star's most anticipated movie of all time, a recent news saying that Kaththi should not be viewed by kids below 12 years has taken everyone by surprise.
Kaththi has already broken records for number of
theatres pre-occupied by a Vijay film even before its release.
While it is set to be released in more than 600 theatres in Chennai
alone, it is not doing bad in Britain as well for 70 theatres will
be releasing Kaththi in Great Britain. Even when the
Superstar's Enthiran was released it managed to
enter just 30 theatres in Britain.
Britain's Censor Board which viewed the movie has issued a '12
A' certificate to Kaththi. The meaning of the certificate
is that kids below 12 years should not watch the movie alone but
should be accompanied by someone above 12 years of age while
watching the film.
Most of the animated movies in Britain usually gets a '12'
certificate that allows kids below 12 years to enjoy the movie
alone. On being asked why Kaththi was given a '12 A'
certificate, sources reveal that the British Censor Board doesn't
allow young kids to watch movies that houses over-dramatized action
sequences and scenes that are considered to be violent in
Also, the British Censor Board has said that such films might affect the kids psychologically if viewed alone. With Kaththi coming out clean from the Indian Censor Board with a 'U' certificate, it might be interesting to know What Poojai's team have to say about British Censor Board's opinion as the Vishal starrer Poojai was denied a 'U' certificate even after appealing for it which will subsequently deny the movie from being a tax-exempt.
