Most Honest ‘Animal’ Movie Review, With Its Box Office Collection
Ranbir Kapoor starring film “Animal” has created quite a stir in the box office, has marked a significant achievement this Monday.
The film has raked in a staggering Rs 40.06 crores, surpassing the Monday collections of other super hits released this year. The movie, released on December 1, 2023, also stars Rashmika Mandanna, Bobby Deol, and Anil Kapoor, alongside Ranbir Kapoor.
Produced by Bhushan Kumar and Krishan Kumar’s T-Series, Murad Khetani’s Cine1 Studios, and Pranay Reddy Vanga’s Bhadrakali Pictures, “Animal” is categorized within the crime drama genre. It promises to take viewers on a thrilling journey, which seems to have resonated with the audience, judging by its box office success.
However, “Animal” has also sparked controversy and discussion. Directed by Sandeep Reddy Vanga, known for his previous work on “Kabir Singh.” Similar to his last film Kabir Singh, the recent film ‘Animal’ has also been criticized for glorifying toxic masculinity and misogyny.
The film ‘Animal’ tells the story of a man, played by Ranbir Kapoor, whose troubled relationship with his father propels him into a life of darkness and violence. Critics have pointed out that “Animal” seems to celebrate crime and violence in a manner that is both insensitive and problematic.
The portrayal of the protagonist’s relationship with women and his understanding of love and entitlement are particularly concerning, as they reflect a harmful and regressive mindset.
The movie has been criticized for stretching a one-dimensional story to its limits without providing much-needed depth or context.
This approach, which glorifies problematic characters, is seen as a step backward in narrative storytelling, especially in an era where audiences seek more nuanced and responsible cinema.
So yeah, “Animal” has achieved box office success, but it also raises serious questions about the messages we send through our films and the responsibility of filmmakers in shaping the perspectives of society.
