As times change, Rannvijay becomes a father of two children, and his world is rocked when he learns of an attack on his father. His quest for justice propels him on a mission to confront and eliminate his father’s opponents. The burning question remains – will Ranvijay emerge victorious by getting justice for his father? To know this profound drama, you have to make a cinematic pilgrimage to the theatre.

Director’s Perspective: Sandeep Reddy Vanga’s cinematic mastery

Known for his distinctive storytelling in Arjun Reddy and Kabir Singh, director Sandeep Reddy Vanga crafts a tale that resonates with raw emotion. Vanga, who is known for portraying intense characters through the lens of intense emotions, has garnered a substantial following, especially among the youth. The morning shows are a testament to his popularity, attracting huge audiences.

However, family audiences may find the film disappointing, as its intense and violent scenes required adult certification from the censor board. Potential objections may arise, particularly regarding the portrayal of women. Interestingly, Vanga took up the responsibility of editing the film himself, but a cut of half an hour would have enhanced its overall impact.

Roller Coaster of Emotions: The Animal Experience

Clocking in at over three and a quarter hours, Animal takes you on a roller coaster ride of action and emotions right from the start, sustaining the momentum until the intermission. Nevertheless, by that time two and a quarter hours had passed. The film experiences a bit of a slow pace in the second half, but the momentum regains with the entry of Abrar (Bobby Deol), who takes the story towards an electrifying climax.

Don’t ignore the post-credits scene; This is an engaging teaser for the sequel announced after the film. The cinematography and background score contribute to the charm of the film, with tracks like Satrenga and Papa already becoming hits. However, this father-son drama lacks sufficient development in the supporting characters, leaving viewers yearning for more.

Ranbir Kapoor’s Magnum Opus: Animal

Dubbed as Ranbir Kapoor’s film, Animal lives up to the label with a stellar performance from the actor. Ranbir dominates the screen from beginning to end and delivers a brilliant performance. Anil Kapoor as Ranbir’s father adds another layer of excellence to the ensemble cast. Rashmika Mandanna has confirmed her skills in the film industry, while Bobby Deol has emerged as a surprising package, injecting vitality into the story.

Despite the brevity of his role, Deol leaves a lasting impression. For fans of Ranbir Singh and Sandeep Reddy, Animal is a must-watch film. However, if you are looking for a family-friendly, light-hearted cinematic experience, you may want to explore alternative options on various OTT platforms.
