The movie is about Ranvijay Singh Balbir (Ranbir Kapoor), who goes to any length to protect his father, Balbir Singh (Anil Kapoor).

How Ranvijay Singh goes all out to protect his father forms the crux of Animal’s story.

It’s hard to picture another actor playing Ranbir’s role in Animal. Such is the famous actor’s absolute genius. The protagonist is a really crazy guy, and playing a role like that takes a lot of conviction. Ranbir gives a great performance, going all out. You will leave the theaters a fan of Ranbir even if you are not, especially after that incredible dialogue moment in the end.

The movie is really captivating in the first half. Even with a long running duration, the opening hour hooks us in. Everything—character growth, action sequence staging, and high points—went rather smoothly.

Rashmika Mandanna had a good supporting role, and she and Ranbir have great chemistry. We never once felt like we were seeing a dubbed movie thanks to the amazing Telugu dubbing. Vasu, in particular, who filled in for Ranbir, performed a fantastic job. The Telugu lyrics are written precisely, and the music are equally great. Good work was done by Anil Kapoor, Tripthi Dimri, Suresh Oberoi, Siddharth Karnick, and others.

Each song is excellent and masterfully shot. The filmography is well-executed. The elements of the action set are well chosen. Numerous scenes have greater impact thanks to the electrifying background score by Harshavardhan Rameshwar. A couple sequences could have been cut, and the final hour’s editing could have been improved.

Sandeep Reddy is a writer-director, and he gave an unorthodox action drama. It is a really nice first half that is appealing to all audiences. However, not everyone is a fan of the second-half drama between Ranbir and Rashmika and the underlying causes of their disagreement. Some groups might also find it offensive. The film is unique because of Ranbir’s portrayal, not because of the novel plot.


Overall, Animal is a gripping action drama that may interest certain viewers. Although there is something for everyone to enjoy in the first half, the second half’s tonal changes may not be to everyone’s taste. There may be some controversy over the graphic content and extreme brutality. Animal’s core is Ranbir Kapoor, who delivered a performance deserving of an award. Animal has strong technical elements, although Bobby Deol’s portrayal could have been more skillfully crafted. You should see Animal if you enjoy unusual and heroic movies.
