Siddhartha’s review

Siddhartha penned a note on Instagram Stories that read, “I had watched ‘Animal’ yesterday and honestly the film had triggered me to no end. The films Nazi glorifying (wearing the swastika on the chest), justifying toxic masculinity with random alpha male theories, the no holds barred violence with no rule of law, marital rape, abusive relationships where the woman is relegated to be a mute bystander while the husband behaves like a brute.”

The cinematographer also wrote that the last shot of the film was ‘abusive,’ adding, “And the last shot of the film where the character of Ranbir Kapoor signals to the audience to come and suck his p***s were beyond redemption and abusive to the audiences’ minds. The fact that this film collected so much money reflects the social condition of the country we live in?”

Siddhartha also stated that despite the A rating, many were watching the film with their children, writing, “And for an A rated film, I have seen young children in the audience at a popular multiplex in Hyderabad. Where is the censorship and responsibility to protect young minds?”
