nothing particularly violent is shown, but a character is forced into an arranged marriage with a man who is rude, dismissive, and in one instance, aggressive with her. he grabs her arm in public in one scene because she doesn't want to go with him. when she resists and leaves, he says something sexually demeaning to her and walks away.

kind of, yes. a character is accused of something she did not do and the status (alive or dead) of someone close to her is constantly called into question by friends, relatives, and the police.

Assault
1
TFMD
No graphic or violent sexual assault, but there are two scenes where consent for sexual contact is not freely given. Near the end, a woman has sex with a man who's possessed by her late boyfriend's ghost. The sex is presented as loving and consensual, but the possessed man has no free will and cannot consent. Also, in another uncomfortable scene, a woman's family pressures her into taking a virginity test, which is administered by a doctor.

there are no on-screen deaths, but a situation where several young men (probably in their early 20s) drown at sea is alluded to and becomes a central part of the movie.

A group of young men are lost at sea. One of them mentions that they have families to support, but we don't see which ones have children (most of the young men are barely characters in the film).

A woman is engaged to a man in an arranged marriage against her will, while she also has a boyfriend whom she loves. I can't see this as cheating because the arranged marriage is not an agreement she consented to.

[SPOILERS] This is a central theme of the film. Several young men die at sea, and their ghosts come back and possess other people, seeking revenge. The scenes of possession aren't overly horrific or violent, but they are creepy. The people who are possessed, when they wake up, don't understand what has happened and are distressed about it.

A police vehicle with rapidly flashing lights (though not quite as fast as strobe lighting). There are also a couple scenes in a nightclub, but here there are only slow-moving neon lights.

no, but a character is pressured into receiving a gynecological exam to "prove" her virginity. the exam is not shown and the scene is brief, but the character does have to lie down on the exam table and is visibly uncomfortable, though not in extreme distress. the scene is short, nothing medical is shown.

Not happy or sad. The ending is mildly positive but ambiguous, in a film that's quite unsettling and sad overall.
