Decoding the Animal first look
From the Animal first look, it is evident that Ranbir Kapoor is finally set to shed his boy-next-door image for the Sandeep Reddy Vanga directorial. The highly anticipated project, which is touted to be a ‘violent’ psychological thriller, is expected to feature the talented actor in his first-ever action-packed role. In the poster, Ranbir Kapoor’s character is seen lighting a cigarette, with a blood-coated axe in his hand. The leading man is seen in his most violent avatar so far in the poster, with a thick beard, neck-long hair, a massive injury on his right arm, and blood-covered clothes.
Now, let’s have a look at the 5 things we can expect from Ranbir Kapoor and Sandeep Reddy Vanga’s Animal…
1. Powerful performances
Well, isn’t it obvious? Animal features a stellar star cast including supremely talented actors like Ranbir Kapoor, Anil Kapoor, and Triptii Dimri. Ranbir, who has always astonished his audiences with consistently great performances, is playing a grey-shaded role in Sandeep Reddy Vanga’s film. The actor is joined by Anil Kapoor, the powerhouse performer who is appearing in the role of his father. Animal also stars Triptii Dimri, the talented actress who has been creating quite a stir on social media with her sensational performance in the Netflix film Qala. Rashmika Mandanna is reportedly playing Ranbir Kapoor’s love interest in the film, while Triptii is appearing as a pivotal character.
2. Solid writing and making
For the unversed, Sandeep Reddy Vanga’s previous outing, the Telugu blockbuster Arjun Reddy, and the film’s Hindi remake Kabir Singh were heavily criticized for glorifying misogyny and physical abuse in relationships. But when we pit the problematic aspects aside and look at it, both the films have showcased Sandeep Reddy’s immense talent as both a scriptwriter and filmmaker. So, when it comes to Animal, the audiences are really expecting the director to deliver a well-written and skilfully directed film, sans the problematic aspects.

3. An emotional father-son story
The first announcement teaser, which just had a powerful monologue of leading man Ranbir Kapoor, had confirmed that the core idea of Animal is the complex relationship between a father and his son. Later, director Sandeep Reddy Vanga confirmed the same and added that the film is going to touch the hearts of audiences with its subject. Well, we are eagerly waiting to witness Ranbir Kapoor and Anil Kapoor’s camaraderie on the silver screen. However, nothing much has been revealed about the characters played by Ranbir and Anil in the film, so far.
4. A stellar soundtrack
From the previous works of Sandeep Reddy Vanga, it is clear that he is a filmmaker with an exceptional musical sense. Despite the polarizing views on its content, Reddy’s Bollywood debut project Kabir Singh was immensely loved for its fantastic music. So when the director reunites with T-Series, we expect nothing but a stellar soundtrack. The exceptional background score of the Animal announcement teaser already has a massive fan following.
5. A complete entertainment package
As per the reports, Animal is a complete entertainment package that is specially made to please the sensibility of the Indian masses, despite having the layers of a psychological thriller. The sources close to the Ranbir Kapoor starrer suggest that the makers are planning to create a film that appeals to audiences from all age groups, despite its strong content. Apart from that, the Sandeep Reddy Vanga starrer is getting a massive pan-Indian release in five languages including Hindi, Tamil, Malayalam, Telugu, and Kannada. This clearly shows the faith makers have in this project.
