To paraphrase The Dark Knight, S. S. Rajamouli’s RRR may not be the movie we deserve, but it’s the movie we need right now!
With so many remakes, sequels, and rehashes out there, RRR is a refreshing palate cleanser for film goers eager for something original. RRR is an epic Indian action drama film, featuring two revolutionaries, their friendship, and their fight against the oppressive British Raj in the 1920s.
I attended a Q&A event with brilliant director S. S. Rajamouli, and when asked what he would want the American viewing audience to know about RRR…
…he thought for a bit, then replied, “It is an unapologetic relationship between two friends.”
RRR is many things, but “unapologetic” may be the best word to describe this insane movie. RRR pulls no punches. In what other film do you get a historical fiction bromance, public floggings, government overthrow, man vs. tiger, and…it’s also a musical?
Well, that is the outrageous, heartfelt, explosively great cinematic experience that is RRR! If you are not familiar with the film, or you already love it like me and just want to know more, keep reading for all the behind the scenes info you need right now.
There aren’t really spoilers ahead, but even if there are, nothing will compare to watching the 3-hour film anyway. Preferably in a theater with an audience, you won’t regret it.
1.So, what does the title RRR mean anyway?
2.The characters are based on actual Indian freedom fighters.
3.Quentin Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds helped inspire the film.
6.The director thought of the dance scene like an action sequence.
7.Some of the film was shot in Ukraine, though they were on the brink of war.
8.How can these characters survive such outrageous events?
We have barely scratched the surface, but that should be enough to pique your interest about RRR for now.
This is one of the few MUST-watch movies of 2022. I highly recommend you see it on the big screen, but since screenings may be hard to find in your area, thankfully, it is streaming on Netflix. Watch it loud and preferably with a friend.
