About Sam Bahadur
Sam Bahadur is based on the life of first Field Marshal Sam Manekshaw. Besides Vicky appearing as Sam Manekshaw, the film also has Sanya Malhotra playing his wife while Fatima Sana Shaikh essayed the role of former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi.

The film has received much appreciation from the X users amid mixed reviews from critics. Many hailed Vicky Kaushal for his performance. It would be interesting to see how it performs at the box office alongside Sandeep Reddy Vanga's Animal overall.

On the other hand, Sandeep Reddy Vanga, who earlier gave Kabir Singh to Bollywood, has helmed Animal. The film follows the father and son bond and how it turns ugly. Ranbir Kapoor is seen crossing limits to make his father like him and turns into a criminal during the process. In the film, Rashmika Mandanna plays Kapoor's love interest, while Anil Kapoor and Bobby Deol are his father and foe, respectively.
