1. That's not a technical issue.
2. According to your description it seems you either haven't done something to proceed yet, or are further than necessary to attach the grapple.

Moving to the TRU section due to the first reason.

It's very likely, particularly in Thailand that you're missing something you should do before you can pull that statue down. I had the same response from Lara when I tried pull it. I won't tell you what, as part of the fun is finding out. Try going back and taking a better look around.

Where else has this happened? As EscondoR has pointed out, it could also mean you're pulling from the wrong direction or from not far enough back.

This has happened to me, even though I had everything to proceed. Try changing your angle, move closer to the ring, go a bit back, left, right etc. Experiment a little and if this doesn't work, try replaying the level from the start.

I hope this helps

This is definitely a bug in the game. Lara does not pull it and just waves her head. I'm on a replay and I played this level today. It took me a lot of tries, it only works by repeatedly pressing the action button again and again and again and again until you feel the thing is moving towards you. Today when I was experiencing it (playing on PC) I pressed the action button so many times that my game suddenly crashed. I restarted and continued from the same checkpoint, faced the same issue again, kept trying standing right next to the big stone. Took me 10-15 minutes trying to pull and finally the stone moved and fell.
