NEW DELHI: The most hyped movie of the year, ‘Animal,’ was released in the theaters on Friday. The film had already garnered immense praise for Kapoor’s stellar performance, creating a buzz even before its launch. With a staggering 79 million views and 1.5 million likes on YouTube, the trailer set the stage for this Ranbir-Sandeep Vanga collaboration.

From its initial poster to the trailer, ‘Animal’ has dominated conversations across the town, sparking a flood of internet memes. Opinions diverged; some lauded the actors, while others criticised director Sandeep Vanga for the movie’s intense violence.

Now that the movie is out, initial reactions are pouring in, determining whether it meets the audience’s lofty expectations.

One man show.. he will make u laugh, cry, love, hate, scared, make u feel every emotion & his screen presence, the position of songs, the screenplay of interval block. If anyone talks about the versatility of an actor just show them this movie.”

However, some of the users have pointed out the violence shown in the movie. A user remarked, “Purely on the merit of narration/character exploration, I have always defended Arjun Reddy. However, #Animal is Sandeep Reddy Vanga’s self-indulgent filmmaking gone wrong. Watchable, due to #RanbirKapoor. You can’t replace lack of plot points with gore, cos violence ain’t a genre.”

A third, sarcastically commented, “Sandeep Vanga Reddy – the Andrew Tate of India – promised that his next movie will make Kabir Singh look cute. #Animal is the fulfillment of that promise. A guaranteed megahit with the ‘hero’ perpetrating domestic violence to a cool rock music track. Incels, assemble!”

A fourth added, “When actors like #RanbirKapoor are shown glorifying violence against women on the big screen, what message are we sending? Movies should start with a declaration that ‘No Women were harmed during filming of the movie and the makers don’t endorse violence against women.”
