Animal Movie Review: A Compelling yet Controversial Cinematic Journey

Modified On: 02 December 2023 | Reviewed By:

Animal Movie Review: Sandeep Reddy Vanga's unconventional portrayal of women and violence aligns with his directorial choices, but the main issue is the storyline's lack of purpose. The central character, an aimless rebel without a cause, overshadows the potential depth of other roles, leaving talents like Anil Kapoor and Bobby Deol underutilized.

Animal Movie Review: Sandeep Reddy Vanga's long-anticipated Animal has finally been unleashed, showcasing Ranbir Kapoor in a devilish, menacing, and unhinged avatar. This wild and wicked film thrusts violence to its zenith, with gore taking center stage. From the onset, it's a bloodbath all over, immersing the audience in a gripping tale of emotions and sequences.


The story delves into Ranvijay's (played by Ranbir Kapoor) life, beginning with his childhood pursuit of his father's love and attention, marred by daddy issues that shape his formative years. Returning after years abroad, his transformation is evident – a more ferocious and deadly version of himself, seeking vengeance against those threatening his father's life.


Transitioning to high school through a flashback sequence, Ranvijay entered his sister's college armed with a gun to retaliate against those who had bullied her. As a consequence, he faced not only a series of tight slaps from his father Balbir Singh (played by Anil Kapoor) but also found himself swiftly enrolled in a boarding school in the US. Returning for his father's 60th birthday, he found himself in a heated altercation with his brother-in-law, Varun (Siddharth Karnick). Subsequently, a romantic subplot unfolded, prompting him to once again flee to the US with his love interest, Geetanjali (Rashmika Mandanna), due to familial opposition to their inter-caste marriage.

Eight years later, he returned transformed, having experienced a life-altering event following a shooting attack on his father. His appearance had changed significantly, with longer hair and a bearded look adding to his newfound ferocity, deadliness, and ruthlessness. Engaged in a relentless mission, he waged war against Abrar Haque (Bobby Deol), who posed a grave threat to his father's life. Ranvijay was now a force to be reckoned with, determined to accomplish his mission at any cost.


Ranbir Kapoor's portrayal as Ranvijay exhibits misogyny, presenting a character loved, hated, and misunderstood simultaneously. Despite the character's flaws, Kapoor's performance blends vulnerability with villainy, eliciting empathy even in moments of adversity. 

The portrayal of Ranvijay's relationship with Geetanjali, his eventual love interest, borders on toxic masculinity. The chemistry between Ranbir and Rashmika Mandanna is captivating, but the film's endorsement of a chauvinistic and toxic marriage dynamic is unsettling.

The film's extended runtime of 3 hours 22 minutes becomes taxing, with high-pitched dialogues and overplayed sequences causing discomfort. While visually appealing, some elements, like references to masculinity through pubic hair and overly explicit conversations, could have been toned down for a more balanced viewing experience.

Despite its flaws, the film showcases commendable performances, especially Anil Kapoor's earnest portrayal and the chemistry between the leads. 

The background music and songs, particularly during action sequences, elevate the viewing experience. However, Bobby Deol's limited screen time feels wasted, given his potential in a significant role.


Animal is an intense, mass-appealing thriller that challenges conventional norms, but its excessive violence might not be suitable for sensitive audiences. The film's relentless bloodshed demands caution, making it a compelling yet daunting watch.
