Sandeep Reddy Vanga’s Animal, starring Ranbir Kapoor, has taken the Indian box office by storm, breaking records and rewriting cinematic history. The action-packed drama has soared to unprecedented heights, leaving audiences captivated and critics divided.
After a thunderous opening with Rs 63.80 crore, Animal maintained its momentum, raking in Rs 66 crore on Saturday. As the weekend progressed, the film’s grip on the audience tightened, and early trade estimates predict a Sunday collection of over Rs 70 crore.
By 5 PM on Sunday, Animal had already amassed an astounding Rs 50 crore, including advance bookings for the next two hours. This remarkable feat places it among the highest-grossing Hindi films of all time, alongside Shah Rukh Khan’s blockbusters Pathaan and Jawan.
Animal’s meteoric rise is a testament to its captivating narrative, Ranbir Kapoor’s electrifying performance, and Sandeep Reddy Vanga’s masterful direction. The film’s gripping storyline, coupled with its high-octane action sequences, has left audiences spellbound.
However, Animal’s success has not come without controversy. The film has faced criticism for its portrayal of violence, misogyny, and vulgarity, sparking debates about the boundaries of cinematic expression.
Despite the criticisms, Animal’s box office dominance is undeniable. The film’s ability to connect with audiences on a visceral level is a testament to its raw power and emotional intensity.
As Animal continues its triumphant run, it remains to be seen whether it can surpass the three-day collection of Pathaan and challenge the record set by Jawan. Regardless of its ultimate position, Animal has undoubtedly etched its name in the annals of Indian cinema, leaving an indelible mark on the industry and the audiences it has captivated.
