‘Animal’: Ram Gopal Varma praises Ranbir Kapoor starrer; wants to ‘lick’ Sandeep Reddy Vanga’s feet

Filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma took to X to share his review of Ranbir Kapoor starrer ‘Animal’.
In a tweet, he praised Ranbir and Sandeep's work. He also lauded the film's impact as a societal statement, citing its provocative nature, expecting debates long after its release.

He highlighted the movie's raw honesty, underscoring moments that stunned audiences, deeming it a cinematic treasure.
He wrote, ‘There will be massive fights over the content and the character of Ranbir in ANIMAL long after its box office run is over and I truly believe it can also trigger a cultural overhaul due to the way Sandeep has ripped off the clothes of moral hypocrisy with his bare naked honesty.’

He called Animal a social statement and wrote, ‘That is because ANIMAL is not merely a film .. it is a SOCIAL STATEMENT. One of my favourite moments is when against everyone’s expectations, including me in the audience was that he (Ranbir’s character Vijay) will come back with a base ball bat or something, but when he comes back with a machine gun that almost made us all fall off our chairs and that moment is a pure cinematic gem.’

The director commended ‘Animal’ for its controversial yet comical scenes, citing instances like the bra strap spanking and discussions about sex with doctors as subconscious tools that delve into the protagonist's psyche.
However, Ram Gopal Varma expressed disapproval for a specific scene where Ranbir Kapoor's character Vijay asks Tripti Dimri's character to lick his shoes. Despite this, he later expressed a desire to honour both Ranbir and Sandeep by symbolically wanting to 'lick their shoes' as a sign of admiration.
He highlighted the actress' compelling portrayal that generated a strong sense of empathy, leading to his dislike for that particular scene involving her character.

Comparing Ranbir to Hollywood star Leonardo DiCaprio, RGV said, ‘Except for that one single scene where he asks that girl to lick his shoe, I felt his performance was superior to even of Leonardo de caprio in wolf of wall street.’

Ram Gopal Varma added, ‘Not from the 1st film of India, Raja Harishchandra in 1913 till now in 2023 in the last 110 years was there more consistency and intensity in an actor’s portrayal of a character than what Ranbir did in ANIMAL. More than him being physically naked in a particular scene, he was emotionally naked throughout the film in his performance which takes much more strength of mind than just being physically naked.’
