RRR is a roaring, rearing, rousing mix of genres — epic-mythological-action-superhero-bromance, that very SS Rajamouli concoction, which we are invited to swallow in one humungous gulp. It is also, needless to say, deafeningly loud. But given that the film compelled us to stay with it, and granted us much fun while at it, you would be happy, for once, to sacrifice your ears temporarily.
As per reports, the budget of RRR has exceeded the budget of SS Rajamouli’s last film Baahubali: The Conclusion by at least Rs 100 crore. Andhra Pradesh minister Perni Nani told reporters, “We got an application from the makers of RRR. As per that information, the producers have spent Rs 336 crore on the movie, excluding GST and the salaries of the cast and crew. Soon, the file will reach the Chief Minister and we will decide on the further hike of movie ticket prices.”
The film is set in the 1920s when British rule was at its peak in India. A small girl from a tribal village in Telangana is taken away as a slave by the British officers. In comes the mighty Bheem (NTR) who belongs to the same tribe and takes on the responsibility of bringing the girl back. But he has to go through a mighty British cop Ram (Ram Charan) who is on his own goal against the British. What will Bheem do now? How will he face Ram? What is Ram’s personal goal? Will Bheem and Ram patch up for a common cause? To know the answers, you need to watch the film on the big screens.
Let us discuss something good:
- Ram Charan gets a very good role which has so many variations to showcase. If Rangasthalam showed what Ram Charan was capable of, RRR will showcase Charan’s magnanimity as an actor. The way he holds all the intense emotions and emotes with his eyes is spellbinding. How his character makes key transformations is brought out so well by Charan.
- Rajamouli has made sure that RRR is bigger and grand in every aspect. One cannot stop but praise him for the way he has thought of something so different and executed it stunningly. RRR is filled with so many goosebump-filled moments that it is hard to put them all here.
- The innocence, screen presence, and crazy action avatar in the film are showcased in the best way possible by the star hero. NTR will move you to tears with his emotional performance in all the patriotic and friendship-based scenes. Probably, one can say that RRR is NTR’s best performance to date.
