The image of the list of cuts from the movie was posted on Twitter by a user wrote, "Exclusive: Kaala was only able to release after 17 cuts. And some of these cuts are ridiculous. (Look at number 16)".

There are seventeen cuts in total which includes various words, scenes and images. Some words, like 'Arasu', 'Kundi', 'Cheri', and 'Yerikkavum' have been muted from the movie, as well as complete dialogues. Even the reference to the word 'Muslim', and a news channel visual that reads 'Pakistan beats India' has also been deleted from the movie.
