'Animal' has been described as disgusting, grotesque and extremely bestial. The degree of violence in the film is punishing to the family audience. If you are a responsible parent, you wouldn't venture anywhere near cinema halls playing the Ranbir Kapoor-starrer. Some gory scenes in the movie have been described by middle-aged audience members are pointlessly macabre.
Undoubtedly, Sandeep Reddy Vanga knew what he was doing. After the release of 'Kabir Singh', he told a film critic that he would show what violence is in his next film. He had 'Animal' in mind.
There is a theory, after the movie's release, that Vanga hopes for calls for its ban in theatres. "Vanga has designed it to provoke. He wants you to call for a ban, to say the film is misogynistic and upsetting. And when you do, he will say, what did you expect, the film’s called Animal," wrote Uday Bhatia, a film critic. The reviewer's view is not off the mark.
The 'Arjun Reddy' director knows that mere calls for a ban won't have any real consequences, considering the film is anyway A-rated. If anything, such calls will only polarize the audiences and make him even more popular across the country. 'Animal Park' aka 'Animal 2' will immensely benefit from a campaign to ban the movie.
