    The Ranbir Kapoor starrer Animal is raging a storm at the box office. In just 4 days of its release, the movie has garnered Rs 360 crore worldwide. However, it is not a hidden fact that the Sandeep Reddy Vanga directorial is receiving a lot of polarizing views from the netizens. So here is looking at some things that did not work for the movie.

    Misogyny and disturbing dialogues/scenes: Ranbir’s Rannvijay seemingly just manages to make his love interest Geentanjali (Rashmika Mandanna) marry him by defining her the meaning of an ‘alpha male.’ Dialogues like ‘It is a man’s world’ and a crude dig at a woman’s menstrual pain are something that could have been omitted or at least toned down in Animal. The women in Ranbir’s family in the movie are just reduced to tame down their husbands, brothers, or fathers leaving no identity of their own. The usage of nudity involving both Ranbir and Tripti Dimri’s characters has also led to some backlash amongst the audience.

    Faulty storylines: The movie’s basic premise involves the relationship between a father and a son but the dynamic is explored efficiently. We never see an arc between Ranbir and Anil Kapoor’s characters in Animal. Why the father is distant from his son? Does he feel guilty or how do they try to overcome the same, nothing substantial is explored on the same.

    Weak antagonist: Bobby Deol’s Abrar Haque was hyped so much before the release of the movie that fans were excited to witness his role. But it turned out to be one of the major disappointments of the film. Not only was there less screen time but Deol’s character arc or back history was also not explored in the same.

    Half-baked plots, unnecessary bloodbaths, and illogical loopholes: The plot gets chaotic and messed up during the conclusion. The sub-plot related to the gang wars looks messed up. It is extremely illogical that despite such a bloodbath and violence, there is not a single police authority to control the scene. The violence-heavy scenes could have been toned down too.
