Mumbai: Leonardo DiCaprio-starrer The Revenant, which releases in India on Friday, has been passed with an A certificate and without cuts by the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC).
“We are relieved that CBFC has cleared the film without any cuts considering the film has a lot of violence and cuss words and usually their stance on such films have been very rigid,” the film’s spokesperson told IANS.
There are just two muted words which the censor felt was derogatory to women.
“CBFC was particularly impressed with The Revenant as the film has won quite a few prestigious awards and is front runner at the Oscars. They also mentioned that if it was any other film they wouldn’t have been so easy,” he said.
Inspired by true events, the film is about one man’s epic adventure of survival and revenge.
Directed by Alejandro Inarritu, the film also stars Tom Hardy, Domhnall Gleeson and Paul Anderson.
