Ranbir Kapoor’s ‘Animal’ Gets 18 Certificate From BBFC, Lists Scenes Abusing & Humiliating Women, Children

New Delhi: “This dark Hindi language action drama charts a man’s relentless pursuit of twisted revenge at all costs. Fight scenes are sustained and gory, domestic abuse is thematic, and there are isolated moments of sexual abuse.” This is how the synopsis of Ranbir Kapoor’s ‘Animal’ reads on the website of the British Board of Film Classification (BBFC).

Following an ‘A’ rating from the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC), Ranbir Kapoor’s upcoming film has been granted an 18 rating (suitable for adults only) by the British Board of Film Classification (BBFC).

The film earns a full five points for ‘violence,’ with the violence description including, “A man uses a knife to saw at another’s throat. A man uses meat cleavers to murder two prisoners. There is a frenzied stabbing. There are several scenes of domestic abuse in which men strike, humiliate, coerce and manipulate women and children. Fight scenes – in which guns, blades, and fists are used – are sustained and bloody.”

The film has been given three points in the ‘threat and horror’ category. The description states, “There are moderate scenes of threat, including when a man puts a pistol into another’s mouth. A man points a gun at a pregnant woman. A teenager takes a gun into a school to intimidate bullies.”

The movie got four points for profanity, while scenes depicting sexual violence and threats also earned four points. The description states, “A bloodied murderer lies on top of his new wife in front of wedding guests. It is implied that he means to rape another woman. A man has sex with a woman as a ruse to make her fall in love with him, following which he humiliates her.”

Animal is all set to release on the big screens on December 1. Sandeep Reddy Vanga has written and directed the movie. T-Series unveiled the official trailer of the film as well on November 23.
