Performances: Kapoor Shines in a Multifaceted Role
Ranbir Kapoor’s portrayal of the dedicated son is nothing short of commendable. With finesse, he navigates through various shades of his character, delivering a performance that stands out in his career. Rashmika Mandanna, in the role of Geethanjali, adds a grounded touch to the film, complementing Kapoor’s performance with a likeable on-screen presence.
Director’s Take: Sandeep Vanga’s Exploration of Relationships
Sandeep Vanga, known for his previous works like “Arjun Reddy” and “Kabir Singh,” takes a different route with “Animal,” delving into the complexities of the father-son relationship. The film’s black-and-white opening and well-crafted sequences set an engaging tone, drawing the audience into the narrative.
Analysis: A Tale of Two Halves
The first half of “Animal” impresses with intense action sequences and a well-executed interval block. However, the second half falters as the core revenge plot concludes early, leading to a stretched narrative that loses its emotional core. Unnecessary segments and overdone bold scenes compromise the essence of the main story.
Supporting Cast: Anil Kapoor Shines Bright
While the supporting cast seamlessly integrates into the central theme, Anil Kapoor steals the spotlight with his presence and performance. Bobby Deol’s villainous character introduced in the second half lacks substantial impact, and Tripti Dimri’s role feels underdeveloped.
Technical Aspects: Hits and Misses
The music, composed by various directors, offers a decent audio experience, but the on-screen presentation lacks visual appeal. Harshavardhan Rameshwar’s background score elevates certain scenes, providing a fresh and engaging auditory experience. Cinematography by Amit Roy aligns well with current trends, but editing choices contribute to the film’s extended duration.
“Animal” offers a riveting first half with standout performances and gripping action sequences. However, the film loses its way in the second half, struggling with pacing and overindulgent scenes. While it’s not easily categorised as good or bad, the film sparks discussion and offers a unique cinematic experience worth exploring on the big screen.
