New Delhi: The Sandeep Reddy Vanga-directed film ‘Animal’, starring Ranbir Kapoor, has crossed the Rs 500 crore threshold at the global box office in just six days of its release. Based on initial estimates given in a Sacnilk.com report, the movie increased its domestic revenues by Rs 30 crore on Wednesday. With this, its collection in India reaches Rs 312.96 crore.
On December 1, ‘Animal’ and ‘Sam Bahadur’, starring Vicky Kaushal, premiered in theaters. The Ranbir Kapoor film’s first Sunday earnings were a staggering Rs 71.46 crore, following a phenomenal Rs 63.8 crore opening in India. ‘Animal’ might soon surpass all previous box office records for Ranbir Kapoor.
The film review on ABP Live reads: ‘Animal’ depicts the drive for vengeance that turns one blind to both good and bad choices, much like any other revenge tale. The notion that perspective matters more than truth is no secret, and an enraged person interprets right and wrong based on his values. Another argument goes that since movies are merely works of fiction, they shouldn’t be interpreted literally. But opinions like these typically arise when the concern is men overstepping their bounds, and they vanish when the filmmakers tackle more complex social concerns. While ‘Animal’, which makes abuse visually appealing, is met with thunderous applause in theaters, film like ‘OMG 2’ receives a lot less attention and value despite offering an exemplary perspective on sex education. Movies that endorse women’s desire and sexuality are vilified, but those that advocate men’s entitlement to satisfy their sexual urges—regardless of the moral implications—are appreciated. In one of the most absurd scenes, guns are fired to celebrate Ranbir Kapoor’s character Ranvijay’s homecoming as he walks out of the house naked. That’s how the “Alpha” man implies his manhood and sense of power.
Meanwhile, the entire version of Bobby Deol’s entry song, ‘Jamal Kudu’ from ‘Animal’, was released available online on Wednesday. The song is reportedly an adaptation of the Iranian tune Jamaal Jamaaloo.
The central theme of ‘Animal’ is the troubled father-son relationship between Ranbir’s Ranvijay Singh and Anil Kapoor’s Balbir Singh, which is set against the backdrop of crime and the underworld. In the movie, Bobby Deol plays the main antagonist, and Rashmika Mandanna stars opposite Ranbir. Siddhant Karnick, Prithviraj, Triptii Dimri, and Shakti Kapoor also feature in the movie.
