We are told that,

Bhadrasalam is a 135-minute film directed(thus fulfills 4) by Katyani, who was a student of Satyajit Ray Film & Television Institute from 1996 to 1999(3 may or not be fulfilled). The cost of producing the film was Rupees 2.3 crore(thus, 2 is fulfilled) and it was submitted to NFDC on 24th July 2007(thus, fulfilling 1). The film has been approved by the censor board of India(thus it fulfills 5).
