Animal audience review: 'Ranbir's 3-hour long cigarette commercial' Sandeep Reddy Vanga's movie gets mixed reactions
Despite its highly entertaining nature, Animal is facing backlash for its gory scenes and portrayal of Rashmika Mandanna's character.
Ranbir Kapoor is back with his performance in Animal and the movie grabbed attention even before its release as it collected huge numbers in bookings. Ranbir Kapoor also beat biopic on India's first Field Marshal, Sam Manekshaw, starring Vicky Kaushal by a slim margin.
Some users said that their experience of watching the movie Animal gave them goosbumps.
“Saluting Sandeep Reddy Vanga for groundbreaking cinema! Ranbir owned it, and the BGM is pure. Embrace the excess drama; not every emotion fits in a few seconds. New kind of filmmaker that India has ever had.@imvangasandeep your music choice," wrote an X user.
Many users applauded the director of the movie Sandeep Reddy Wanga, actors like Boby Deol, Anil Kapoor, Rashmika Mandanna in the movie. With the kind of response the movie is getting on the first day of release, a few netizens declared the movie to be the next member of ₹1000 crore club.
Meanwhile, some criticised this movie and called it ‘misogynistic’. One user wrote, “Animal Movie is pretty fuckall... Here's my detailed review."
A usere Sejal wrote on X, “A movie like animal is not the way to tell people what is problematic about these men."
Despite being regarded as a highly entertaining movie, Ranbir Kapoor's Animal is facing backlash for its gory scenes and portrayal of Rashmika Mandanna's character in the movie. The movie's problematic premise has been widely discussed ever since the release of its first teaser.
'Rashmika has Paan Bahar in her mouth for the entire movie,' wrote another user Gabbar.
The user further added, “Animal Review. They shot an outstanding trailer of 2 mins with great background music, acting and intensity. Showed it to people. They liked it. So they thought of adding extra footage of around 3 hours to make a movie out of it. Yes. The best bits of the movie are in its trailer. Ranbir Kapoor is probably the best actor in town now, but is wasted in this listless, meandering 3 hour long cigarette commercial. There was a movie called Anaadi with Venkatesh in it, where they show how the brothers loved their sister so much, that they stopped the town, when she went out. That’s how you know the relationship is toxic."
“Anil Kapoor looks like a regular father, movie gives no reason why Ranbir has such toxic love for him, the core tenet of the movie. Rashmika has Paan bahar in her mouth for the entire movie. Not a single gun-shot in the movie has a solid rationale behind it. In one scene, Ranbir is walking naked in his lawn after a surgery, so everyone shoots in the air. Yep. I am also as confused. Watch the trailer on YouTube. Save money," it further read.
On the first day of its release, Sandeep Reddy Vanga's action drama is set to release in multiple languages and is expected to earn at least ₹100 crore gross at the worldwide box office.
