Bombastic, powerful, heartfelt, wild, RRR is all that and more. RRR is a blockbuster that doesn’t care about being grounded and realistic but still gives us human and real characters. Director S. S. Rajamouli injects tremendous passion into RRR, with some of the most glorious spectacle I’ve ever seen. The action in RRR is electrifying; I’ve rarely seen an action film with such shameless gravitas. But throughout all the energy, Rajamouli never loses sight of the bromantic strength of his two leads: Bheem (N. T. Rama Rao Jr.) and Raju (Ram Charan). Both characters are powerful, charasmatic, and have excellent chemistry. These two conduct us through the wild ride of RRR, and I hope the film’s popularity breaks Indian cinema into the mainstream.
