Animal vs Sam Bahadur: Story Line
The storylines of both movies are very different. Animal explores the toxic relationship between a father and his son and how the son’s obsession to gain his father’s acceptance and love, in the process, turns into an animal-like killer.
The movie Animal features Ranbir Kapoor, Rashmika Mandanna, Anil Kapoor, and Bobby Deol. After the release of Brahmastra, Ranbir Kapoor is on the trail of housefuls, and it will be interesting if Animal can make a trademark for him or not.
On the other hand, Vicky Kaushal’s Sam Bahadur is based on the life of the first Field Marshal of India, Sam Manekshaw, who is regarded as the architect of India’s victory during the 1971 Indo-Pakistani war. Sam Bahadur is one of the very few movies that has been cleared by the censors, the Indian Army, without a single cut.
Sam Bahadur is Meghna Gulzar’s and Vicky Kaushal’s second collaboration after Raazi. Everyone has high expectations of Vickey Kaushal, as his performance in the trailer looked convincing.
