Karan Johar Calls Animal 'Best Film of The Year', Here's Why


Animal is still making the news for its powerful appeal. After a huge box-office stint, the film is still being discussed by everyone. At a recent roundtable, Karan Johar called Animal the best film of the year. According to him, the success of the film was game-changing.

Karan Johar Hails Animal as the Best Film

Speaking about the film at the roundtable, Karan shared how he was a bit hesitant to admit that he liked Animal. When he tweeted about it, people came out to attack him, as he made a film like Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani, which was just thematically opposite of Animal.

He said, "I can't disagree with you more because I think Animal is my favorite film of the year. It took me a while to reach this statement and a lot of courage because when you're around people, you fear judgment."

Further, he said, "I'm just going to say that I loved Animal for its front-footed, absolutely conviction-based narrative, storytelling, breaking grammar, breaking myths, and breaking everything that you conform to in mainstream cinema. Suddenly, you have an interval block where the hero is getting bashed up and people are singing a song. I'm like, 'Where have you seen a sequence like this? It's genius."

Along with that, Karan Johar also spoke about the film's much-talked-about climax, the brawl between Ranbir Kapoor and Bobby Deol. He said, "At the end, when the two men are going for each other and they play that song, I had tears in my eyes, and there was only blood. So, I was like, Something is wrong with me, something is wrong with him (Sandeep Reddy Vanga), but something put together is very right about the film."

He also said that he saw the film twice in order to fully grasp its power. "I saw the film twice. First, to see it as an audience, and second, to study it. I think the success of Animal, the acceptance, and the film itself are game-changing."

Animal was released on December 1 and starred Ranbir Kapoor, Rashmika Mandanna, Tripti Dimri, Bobby Deol, and Anil Kapoor in important roles. It created a spur upon its release, with divided opinions from some. Some called out the film for being problematic, while others loved it.
