Two of Bollywood's most anticipated films of the year, Animal and Sam Bahadur, are set to clash at the box office on December 1, 2023.

Animal is a crime thriller directed by Sandeep Reddy Vanga and starring Ranbir Kapoor, Anil Kapoor, and Bobby Deol. The film follows Arjun Singh (Kapoor), a young man who becomes entangled in the world of crime after his father is murdered.

Sam Bahadur is a biopic of Field Marshal Sam Manekshaw, directed by Meghna Gulzar and starring Vicky Kaushal in the titular role. The film chronicles Manekshaw's military career, from his early days as a young officer to his role in the 1971 Indo-Pakistani War. 

Animal is expected to appeal to fans of action and crime thrillers 

while Sam Bahadur is likely to be a hit with fans of patriotic films.

Ranbir Kapoor is one of the biggest stars in Bollywood, and his presence is sure to attract audiences to Animal. 

Vicky Kaushal is a rising star, and he also has a track record of delivering hit films. 

Animal is a crime thriller, which is a popular genre in India. 

Sam Bahadur is a biopic, which is a less popular genre, but it could benefit from the patriotic sentiment surrounding Field Marshal Sam Manekshaw. 

Both Animal and Sam Bahadur have the potential to generate positive word-of-mouth, which could boost their box office performance. 

Ultimately, the success of Animal and Sam Bahadur will depend on the quality of the films and the audience's response. Both films have the potential to be blockbusters, and it will be interesting to see how they perform at the box office.
