Overall Word of Mouth (Critics) - Mixed

1. Times Now -

Rating Score -> 3/5
Ranbir Kapoor Is Intense In This Complex Family Saga. Sandeep Reddy Vanga's film revolves around the decades-old complicated relationship between a troubled man and his powerful father. 

2. Great Andhra -

Rating Score -> 2.5/5
"Animal" is a mixed bag, with a fantastic first half, an exceptional performance by Ranbir Kapoor, and compelling soundtrack, but it bogs down owing to too much violence and bold talk about s**ual acts and gore. However, it will appeal to young people and others who enjoy a "cult" and bold style of narration.

3. Hindustan Times -

Rating Score -> n/a
Animal is an absolute massy, entertaining and extremely violent thriller which doesn't believe in conforming to the norms. The bloodshed isn't for the weak hearted to watch, so practice caution if you decide to watch it because there's a lot of it, and you might not be able to take that much.

4. Indian Express -

Rating Score -> 1/5
Ranbir Kapoor, Anil Kapoor wasted in this pointless, vile tale. This Ranbir Kapoor-Anil Kapoor-Rashmika Mandanna film ricochets off target after having raced full-tilt to the mid-point: if it had come to an end at the interval, it would have made

5. First Post -

Rating Score -> 3.5/5
Ranbir Kapoor delivers a pathbreaking performance in flawed yet riveting father-son tale. Animal is an adrenaline experience which will have polarising views but you can't deny its entertaining quotient, breathtaking performances and storytelling

6. NDTV -

Rating Score -> 1.5/5
Ranbir Kapoor Delivers Powerful Performance In Off-Putting And Tiresome Film. The sickeningly violent father-son action drama rarely pauses for breath.

7. India Today -

Rating Score -> 2/5
Ranbir Kapoor is stellar in problematic, paper-thin film. Sandeep Reddy Vanga's 'Animal' could have been a great father-son love story. Instead, it is driven by one character's whims for over three long hours.

8. Times of India -

Rating Score -> 2.5/5
Ranbir Kapoor can be Joaquin Phoenix but Animal’s no Joker. This entire film could have just been a conversation between the father and his son.

9. Rediff -

Rating Score -> 4/5
Bloody Ranbir, beta Ranbir goes for broke in Sandeep Reddy Vanga's bonkers take on broken daddy-son bonds

10. Komal Nahta -

Rating Score -> n/a
Animal is a surefire super-hit. It will be unstoppable at the box-office on the strength of patronage of the masses and the youth. Ladies and family audience will be divided in their opinion, of course.

11. The Hindu -

Rating Score -> n/a
Ranbir Kapoor suffers in Sandeep Reddy Vanga’s twisted paean to masculinity. ‘Animal’ had the chance to claw out a fresh, psychology-driven path for Hindi action movies, but its director appears more tempted by franchise potential than telling a controlled, coherent story

12. Deccan Herald -

Rating Score -> 1/5
Animal is nothing but a seven-course-meal of severe narcissism, autopilot plane s*x, a post murder s*x, a Rolls-Royce in the colour of hickeys, a mockery of menstruation, a lesson on pubic hair, a Made in India Atmanirbhar machine gun, bloodshed, gunfire BGM

13. India TV -

Rating Score -> 3/5
Ranbir Kapoor gives his career's best in Sandeep Reddy Vanga's film, but beware. Vanga answers Kabir Singh's critics with a blockbuster, heavy on violence, and usual 'vanga-isms.

14. Mid-Day -

Rating Score -> 2/5
Tight script more essential than tight slap, no? The only issue I had with that film were those giving it a deeper moral meaning—of what such borderline misogyny as commercial success means to Indian society

15. News 18 -

Rating Score -> 3.5/5
Animal is for brave hearts (brace yourself for a brutal throat-slitting scene). The film is dark, loud and garish but also unapologetic. It has guns blazing with the background score sometimes overpowering the dialogues. But somehow, all of that works.
