Animal is all set to deliver his biggest commercial hit as Animal is expected to even beat the number of his highest grosser, Sanju. However, not everyone is praising the movie which is being judged for the moral compass of the lead characters and portrayal of the female characters in poor light. Recently, a senior cricketer slammed the movie on social media but later, deleted the post. He called it a disaster and a disgrace.
Senior cricketer Jaydev Unadkat deleted the tweet in which he said he wasted his time by watching the film. It read: "What an absolute disaster #AnimalTheFilm was! Glorifying misogyny in today's world and then tagging it as mere "traditional masculinity" and "alpha male" is a disgrace. We ain't living in the jungles and palaces and fighting wars or going hunting anymore. It doesn't matter how good the acting was, one shouldn't glorify & show such acts in a movie that is watched by millions. There is a thing called social responsibility even in the entertainment industry that one should never forget. Just feels bad that I wasted my 3 hours to watch such a pathetically made movie."
Swanand, who was one of the firsts from the industry to call the action drama out, had expressed his discomfort over Animal’s treatment of women and had shared on X–formerly Twitter–how the film is taking the future of Indian cinema towards a more “dangerous and scary” direction.
