Online parody and discussions are buzzing as netizens draw parallels between Akshay Kumar-Amitabh Bachchan starrers and the forthcoming ‘Animal’ trailer, highlighting resemblances in plotlines and character dynamics.
A recent post from an Instagram parody handle, f.u.n._editzz, stirred conversations by juxtaposing snippets from Akshay Kumar’s Waqt: The Race Against Time (2005) and Ek Rishta (2001) alongside the recently released ‘Animal’ trailer, prompting users to humorously label it as “the wrong Animal trailer.”
The video montage drew attention to similarities in the father-son relationships portrayed in these older movies, notably between Amitabh Bachchan and Akshay Kumar, akin to the dynamics showcased between Anil Kapoor and Ranbir Kapoor in the ‘Animal’ trailer.
Echoing sequences from the older films, the edited video spotlighted instances where Akshay Kumar’s character addresses Amitabh Bachchan as “papa,” reminiscent of Ranbir’s dialogues in the ‘Animal’ trailer. Additionally, scenes showcased suggestions of role reversal between the father-son pairs, a theme akin to the upcoming movie’s narrative.
The parody montage also emphasized resemblances in plot elements involving female leads, highlighting instances where Karisma Kapoor’s character, akin to Rashmika Mandanna’s role in ‘Animal,’ confronts the protagonist with a choice between herself and their father figures. Further comparisons highlighted scenes of vengeance, akin to Jaanwar, where Akshay Kumar invades the antagonist’s premises, evoking parallels to the actions depicted in the ‘Animal’ trailer.
Netizens reacted humorously to the juxtaposed video, with comments varying from comparisons between actors’ performances to light-hearted observations about the thematic resemblances.
‘Animal,’ set for release in multiple languages including Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, and Kannada on December 1, has already kicked off its advance booking, generating heightened anticipation among audiences.
