Criticism for Animal

Animal, directed by Sandeep Reddy Vanga, is under scrutiny for its portrayal of extreme violence and has been criticised for promoting "toxic masculinity" and "misogyny", similar to the director's previous work Kabir Singh.

The Guardian criticised the film for its problematic dialogue and unfavourably called it “a poor man’s version of The Godfather".

Chhattisgarh MP Ranjeet Ranjan reported that her daughter, along with other children, left the cinema in distress due to the film's content. She criticised the movie in Rajya Sabha for its glorification of violence and misogynistic undertones.
