Extreme reactions to Ranbir Kapoor’s Animal

The movie is being hailed by several celebs and fans alike. On the contrary, there have been some highly-negative reactions about the extreme violence. Sandeep Reddy Vanga’s directorial, just like his previous movie Kabir Singh, has been accused of “toxic masculinity" and “misogyny" in the movie.

Actor Allu Arjun is one of the latest celebrities to praise the movie. “Blown away by the cinematic brilliance. Congratulations! #RanbirKapoor ji just took Indian cinema performances to a whole new level. Very Inspiring . I am truly in loss of words to explain the magic you’ve created," he wrote.

The Guardian slammed Ranbir’s “Andrew-Tate-esque one-liners about alpha males and women’s submission" and called the movie “a poor man’s version of The Godfather or Scarface".

Ranjeet Ranjan, an MP from Chhattisgarh, earlier said that her daughter had left the theatres crying. "My daughter and a bunch of other children were watching the film. They cried and left the theatre at halftime. The film's justification of violence and misogyny is shameful," she said in Rajya Sabha.
