 PARAVA is a Malayalam language comedy drama in which two young friends attempt to train the perfect racing pigeon.


There are multiple fights and brawls featuring slaps, punches and kicks. One man breaks a piece of wood over another man's head, and two men are struck with a wooden oar. A man is stabbed in the sole of his foot through his shoe, without blood or injury detail. Blood leaks from a man's mouth after his head is knocked into a pile of bricks.


There are brief images of drug paraphernalia including bloody discarded needles, and of people passed out or semi-conscious after misusing drugs. The work as a whole does not endorse drug misuse.


A man makes sexually suggestive comments to his female employee and propositions her for sex, causing her great distress. The verbal references are not graphic.

Mild sex references include a scene in which sexual-sounding moaning can be heard coming from a cinema screen after some young boys sneak into a screening. We don't see the screen itself, just the comically enraptured faces of the boys. There is brief, non-graphic sight of a dead dog after the animal is accidentally killed off screen. Mild bad language includes 'shit', 'asshole', 'damn' and 'hell'.
