Set against the backdrop of the vibrant and ruthless world of gangsters, “Animal” revolves around the complex relationship between a father and son who are both deeply entrenched in the criminal underworld.
Arjun Singh (Ranbir Kapoor), a young man with a burning ambition to prove himself, follows in the footsteps of his powerful father, Balbir Singh (Anil Kapoor), a formidable gangster who commands respect and fear in equal measure.
Arjun’s unwavering loyalty to his father and his desire to earn his approval lead him down a path of violence and retribution. He becomes deeply involved in his father’s criminal empire, carrying out ruthless acts and eliminating anyone who threatens their power.
However, as Arjun delves deeper into the dark underbelly of the criminal world, he begins to question the choices he has made and the sacrifices he has endured. The lines between loyalty and betrayal blur as Arjun confronts the devastating consequences of his actions.
Amidst the escalating tensions and power struggles, Arjun is caught in a web of deceit and betrayal. He must navigate a treacherous landscape where trust is scarce and loyalty is often tested.
As Arjun grapples with his inner turmoil and the weight of his past, he faces a pivotal moment that will determine his destiny. Will he remain tethered to the legacy of violence that has defined his life, or will he break free and forge his own path?
