Nitesh Bhardwaj shares his review of Animal

In a recent interview with Etimes, Nitesh Bhardwaj said that he couldn’t sit and watch Animal after the interval. He stated that he would be worried if more films like these are made and become successful at the box office. His quote read, “Action can be in Veer Rasa too, but the film is an expression of Bibhastsa Rasa. In action as well as dialogues and behaviour. I would be worried if more such films are made, and they are successful. I could not sit beyond the interval, in spite of being an ardent fan of Ranbir’s acting prowess.” Nitesh Bhardwaj also asserted the importance of censorship of OTT content. He stated that use of cuss words in web series has kind of legitimised ‘Vikriti’ in humans. He is of an opinion that the audiences who enjoy it have become desensitised to its impact. He feels that all of it will have an effect on the society.
