Cast: Jr NTR, Ram Charan, Alia Bhatt, Ajay Devgn and others
Plot: What will happen when historic personalities Alluri Seetharama Raju and Komaram Bheem who have their own past, meet over a common objective to retaliate against the British?
RRR Review: Alluri Seetharama Raju (Ram Charan) works in the British Empire as a police officer. While he is known for his bravery, he is always looking for an opportunity to take vengeance? What is that revenge?
Cut across to Komaram Bheem (Jr NTR) belongs to the tribe. He too comes to the British Empire from Adilabad with an agenda!
While the British come to know about Komaram Bheem’s agenda, the British then appoint Alluri Seetharama Raju as a special officer to nab Bheem, dead or alive. That sets up the plot!
Master storyteller Rajamouli opens up the plot very quickly within 30 minutes into the film. He clearly establishes the mind set of two characters Ram and Bheem.
Starting from how they meet, to how their friendship blossoms (although both have their own agenda) have been portrayed beautifully. The emotional aspects of their amity is truly heart touching.
NTR and Ram Charan show great camaraderie and complemented each other well. Balancing two star heroes is a truly challenging job but Rajamouli needs to be appreciated for his flawless writing.
The build up towards the Natu Natu song, the dance moves in the number is an eye feast.
The writing has been brilliant, and it is very evident in Rajamouli’s story telling. The way he has penned the emotional conflict between the Ram and Bheem is truly admiring.
Rajamouli’s shot division is a school in itself. The way he manages to capture the essence and visual beauty of the frame is inspiring. The entire narrative is completely loaded with drama and breath-taking cinematography.
Rajamouli’s ability to keep the audience glued to the screens is simply brilliant. The way the action sequences are composed are perhaps on par with the best in the world cinema.
The intermission block is perhaps one of the best episodes you will find on the silver screen in recent times.
There are situations where the film’s pace slows down, but again, that’s something Rajamouli might have done intentionally ...only to give upcoming scenes the reverting elevation.
The unimaginable shot taking in most parts of the film keeps you spell bound.
Cinematographer Senthil Kumar does a brilliant job of capturing these sets well. Keeravani's background score elevates the performances and gives you the required high
Performance wise, this is Ram Charan’s career best performance. The way he prepped up for the part, the way he executed and delivered with great intensity is remarkable.
Jr NTR was simply brilliant as Bheem! He got under the skin of the character and gave a killer punch to his role. The efforts for his role are clearly evident on the screen!
Alia Bhatt doesn’t get much scope, but Ajay Devgn’s cameo is impressive. Ray Stevenson [Scott] and Alison Doody [Lady Scott] are adequate as the antagonists. Olivia Morris too gets limited scope.
Finally, Rajamouli is what Rajamouli does. Time and again, we wonder how this genius storyteller can come up with such riveting revenge drama and have the audience glued to the silver screen?
RRR is a fantastic film that’s meant for the big screen.
Watch out for the master story teller’s sparkling narrative and incredible performances of Jr NTR and Ram Charan....
