RRR Trailer (Telugu) – NTR, Ram Charan, Ajay Devgn, Alia Bhatt | SS Rajamouli | 25th March 2022
Cast & Crew
high and low. No, I am not talking about Akira Kurosawa’s Japanese film from 1963, but SS Rajamouli’s RRR movie. Actually, this is the best acronym I can think of for an RRR movie.
SS Rajamouli has been making large-scale friendly commercial films for a long time, but Baahubali brought him pan-India popularity. He became a household name and a brand!
So naturally, everything he would do after Baahubali was to look younger or look comparatively less because the bar was too high for any filmmaker and for himself.
The same happened with Prabhas when he brought ‘Saaho’ and ‘Radheshyam’ after Bahubali. Let’s just accept that a film like “Baahubali: The Conclusion” (2017) cannot be made again and again.
Not just because it was a huge blockbuster, but also because the kind of extraordinary commercial cinema it offers is almost impossible nowadays. When I saw Baahubali 2, I called it the biggest commercial entertainer of this millennium after Gadar (2001).
Surprisingly, these are the only two movies to have sold 5 crore+ tickets in the Hindi belt in this century. It was acceptable to see such heroic characters in Baahubali as the RRR movie is set in an ancient time, which justifies it. But with RRR Movie, it cannot be justified enough as RRR Movie is set in 20th century, where you would expect some human potential things.
It doesn’t matter how big (hypothetically) your character is, when it comes to on-screen persona, it makes some sense, because we have had a lot of great celebrities during this period who have lasted. Have served the country till the drop.
Of their blood, and it all came with humanitarian sanctions. RRR movie looks problematic in this sense, but if we talk about mass cinema, then RRR movie is simply phenomenal.
RRR Movie is a fictional story set in the 1920s. Two Indian revolutionaries, Rama Raju (Ram Charan) and Komaram Bheem (Junior NTR), try to fight their way through the mighty British Empire and the Nizam of Hyderabad, who are interestingly opposite and unknown to each other.
Bheem follows a little girl who is kidnapped by British officer Steve (Ray Stevenson) and his wife, Lady Scott (Allison Doody), while Rama is a British cop who tries to stop her.
Two powerful heroes, one fire and one water, are pitted against each other, and then you get to know their agenda in the second half as the story unfolds past events. RRR Full Movie presents Ram Charan and Jr NTR in never seen before avatars.
Rajamouli makes sure that his crazy fans get enough material to have a big mass party in the cinema hall. Ram Charan enters with a 5-minute long action sequence that sounds a bit too extravagant for a normal minded, but that’s what “mass cinema” means, isn’t it?
On the other hand, Jr NTR has got a crazy mass entry which also has a class. That whole jungle sequence will blow your mind. A nice happy warning to all Taarak fans: Please keep your hopes high as Bheem is about to surpass them all.
The pairing of Ram and Bheem works like fireworks during all those massive action sequences. Coming to the supporting cast, notably two Hindi actors, Ajay Devgn and Alia Bhatt, both have small but significant cameos.
Ajay Devgn speaks again with his sharp eyes, and in other news, the sky is blue. This man has some charisma of his own. It’s just a matter of a talented filmmaker who can make good use of it. Alia Bhatt as Sita looks gorgeous in every single scene, and her character plays an important role in the narrative.
Olivia Morris graces the screen with her beauty and has a lovely tone.Alison Doody is the exact opposite of that, but that’s what the villainous characters do. Both Samuthirakani and Shriya Saran appear in small roles, and both pass with good grades.
RRR Full Movie ‘s basic script is as good as any Telugu action drama (mind you, some call it mindless), but the screenplay doesn’t match that certain level you are expecting. The second half may bore you with outdated melodrama and may cause a little irritation too.
All those flaws will be forgiven when you witness the big-screen extravaganza in 3D. The action sequences of RRR Full Movie have set the benchmark for all RRR Movie makers in India.
Rajamouli outperforms himself from wherever he has done Bahubali. RRR Full Movie still had battlefield references to help a bit, but RRR Full Movie , despite being driven by two characters, provides a better visual spectacle than Bahubali.
That’s not a small thing, mind you. The music of RRR Full Movie is going to create some hysteria in theaters. If you don’t feel like dancing while “Naacho Naacho,” I’d say please consult a doctor. You are not normal.
“Dosti” has got nice tunes for a situational song, and “Komuram Bheemudo” will take you all by surprise. I’m not sure if you can hear “Raamam Raaghavam” clearly because there will be a lot of noise, including big screams and whistles, going around at the time. But you’ll ask for a repeat viewing after reaching home.
It’s been more than two years since we haven’t had a big pan-India event film and SS Rajamouli brings back that much needed “Big-Screen Experience” for us. Undoubtedly, the best director in India when it comes to commercial cinema.
The name is SS Rajamouli! His extraordinary vision of looking at ordinary things is what makes him better than other filmmakers in India. Bahubali was an ordinary script, but it’s Rajamouli who made it an extraordinary film.
No matter how many resemblances you find between it and “The Lion King” or its original source material, Shakespeare’s Hamlet, it’s a story every Indian can relate to. That’s the same case with RRR Full Movie , despite some flaws in the writing.
But that’s where Rajamouli’s genius mind works overtime. He presents the high-octane mass hysteria that is sure to make the masses go crazy. The hardcore patriotism will please a certain section too.
Whether it be the introduction scenes of the two lead actors or that train bridge action scene or that pre-interval rampage or even that mind-boggling climax in the forest, SS Rajamouli has outdone himself.
He has reached a level that other commercial directors in Indian cinema can never reach or even dream about. Give this man a weak script and he will still make a strong mass entertainer out of it.
That’s what he has done with RRR Movie. Every single viewer is going to hail him for his superlative vision of how to look at period action dramas. Every filmmaker who wants to make a great mass film should learn from him.
As a whole, RRR Movie packs a solid punch of out-and-out commercial entertainer that we have been missing since the Bahubali juggernaut. Just don’t mind the below average writing, and you are going to LOVE IT!Rating – 6/10*
I saw Rajamouli’s first film Magadheera. It was a revelation to me at the time that an Indian action film could look so good. The way it combined its own version of mythology and made it so cool that really blew my mind, even though I had a lot of issues with that movie during modern times.
But I could see that there was a need for some Telugu commercial film production at that time. Then Ega felt even better with her crazy fly revenge. Then Baahubali became a national sensation, but even though I liked RRR Full Movie, I was disappointed as I thought Magadheera should have been a success of Baahubali.
I really didn’t like it as much as I liked the last two movies apart from the great battle scenes and a few things around. Baahubali 2 was an even bigger disappointment as I did not like it at all.
So I was going into RRR movie cautiously but it easily became my favorite film of his. From the very beginning with Ramcharan’s intro, there were many such things about it that beat the expectations.
We see the protagonist of RRR movie in a completely negative light in this impossible action setpiece. The scene is crafted in such a way that even if we know it is not possible, we do not question it. RRR Full Movie is full of such moments where action setpieces blow your mind and it will not work if these action sequences are shown differently.
Jr NTR’s entry during the action scene just before the interval was another mind-blowing moment. Patriotism and mythological analogy were used beautifully. Even the wind agitating the character in a moment felt like it was referring to Bhima/Hanuman, the name and action performed by that character, the son of Vayu, the wind god in mythology.
RRR Full Movie has a lot of problems but as far as I am concerned, the existence of RRR Full Movie in this form is a surprise in itself. Best film to ever come under the so called “Pan-Indian” label.
What Worked: I personally felt this was a better Rajamouli film than his earlier projects. One of the things that makes it a RRR movie watcher’s choice is its ability to connect with the audience, which makes it a massive entertainer with its elements of a masala movie going experience.
Ajay Devgn made a mark, short lived but played an important role, so I am glad that he made an impact in RRR Movie. Both the leads were great in their roles and if I had to choose either one, I would go for Ramcharan, partly because he had a better narrative and acting.
The production team put their work in the right way and perfectly RRR Full Movie did the job. RRR Full Movie is better than other projects which the director has had a share in both in terms of performance and overall production value.
RRR Full Movie connects with most of the audience, making it an entertaining and enjoyable experience. Unlike his previous films, it has fewer stilted moments and over-the-top acting performances, but keeping them in context and applied when necessary.
A big shout out to the composer and the score; It is a cure.Hence, RRR Full Movie works on the most part, which celebrates it as an entertaining and film package rather than a review and analysis.
Bottomline it works and puts the right chords together in RRR Movie: What didn’t work: If I had a chance, I would have worked on some technical aspect of RRR movie. Although better than the previous films, the editing and VFX team had some room for improvement. Plus, I’d be happy if the narrative had a stronger command, even stronger logic and motivation that would guide the characters’ missions.
Not saying it’s not there, but the subtext and sub layers would have made it better. Final Verdict: This is a better Rajamouli project, and he has improved as a filmmaker. It’s worth a dramatic watch.
The last time director SS Rajamouli had managed to enthrall the audience with RRR Full Movie Baahubali: The Conclusion in 2017. It took him 5 years to conceptualize, shoot and bring it to the silver screen for his next film, RRR Movie.
Pulling off a multi-starrer with Jr NTR and Ram Charan in lead roles can seem like an achievement in itself. But when it comes to story, Rajamouli manages to do anything. RRR Movie is set in the 1920s and revolves around the lives of two revolutionaries – Alluri Sitarama Raju who waged an armed campaign against the British and Komaram Bheem a tribal of the Gond tribe, who fought against the tyranny of his people.
There is no historical evidence to show that the two ever met or fought together but Rajamouli revisits history and weaves a story around their meeting. RRR Full Movie runs on a relatively simple premise.
There is ‘Aag’ – an angry, young police officer Ramaraju (Ram Charan) who is both respected and feared by the British. They have done everything they can over the years, he is the one they want to hold and yet, he is the one who has never been respected enough because of the color of his skin.
Then there is ‘Pani’ – the sweet, simple, innocent Bheem (Junior NTR) who has brute force but uses it only when it serves his purpose. He is a Gond tribesman who has come to town to rescue a young girl named Malli, who was taken in by Lady Scott (Alison Doody), a singing doll. But this is only the beginning of the story.
Rajamouli’s new calling card seems to be creating a new world. Because, despite being based on two revolutionaries of history, the story of RRR Full Movie is completely fictional.
The Delhi of the 1920s became his new canvas. Bhima must have fought so much against the Nizams that it became imperative for one of them to warn the British that he should not be taken lightly. But they also get shelter of Muslims in Delhi.
Ramaraju may seem like a well-trained soldier who will blindly follow instructions, but it seems that his past is known to none other than his uncle (Samuthirakani). Scott (Ray Stevenson) believes “Brown Trash” is even worth a bullet wasted on him, but Jennifer (Olivia Morris) seems more sympathetic.
It’s not the freedom movement where you turn the other cheek, it’s where you use your hands as a weapon.The first half of RRR Full Movie runs like clockwork. Malli has an emotional core, sings and dances with Naatu Naatu (This Will Make You Smile) and explores friendship through friendship, even laughs a few times whenever Bheem tries to befriend Jennifer.
Comes. Cinematic liberties are taken, but they are not as noticeable as in the later parts, the half where RRR Full Movie falters a bit. The way Ramaraju’s fiancée Sita (Alia Bhatt) is woven into the story, apart from the transformation of Ram Charan into another form, is also forced into a story that was smooth sailing.
The way Bheem is set up effortlessly despite nothing being told, the way Ramaraju’s story unfolds feels tense. The climax leaves more to be desired. Although the good thing is that RRR Full Movie surprises you.
Rajamouli manages to cleverly use some of the tropes established in the early parts of RRR Movie in the later parts. At least Rajamouli manages to deliver something that people have been yearning for – a commercial, action drama that will totally entertain you – which it does.
Due to the tight screenplay, the length also does not prove to be a deterrent. VFX could have been better in some parts. Jr NTR gave the best performance of his career. He is charming as Bheem, especially in the emotional bits and his desperation to find Malli goes well, so is his love for Ramaraju.
Ram Charan also does well, putting the soul into the changes his character goes through. The roles of Tarak and Charan require chemistry, which they do. Alia Bhatt, Olivia Morris, Samuthirakani, Ajay Devgn, Shriya Saran and others have played their roles well.
Olivia in particular manages to win over your heart. Alison and Ray wind through their roles. Keerwani’s OST for RRR Movie may not be for everyone but he does well with BGM. Senthil’s camerawork is also commendable.
RRR Full Movie is made for watching on the big screen. The cinematography and visual aesthetics paint every frame brilliantly. Rajamouli is now expected to make a splash. The background score oozes with relentless urgency and repetition, unapologetically melodramatic and striking in itself.
It stuns us in submission but as the tempo falters a bit after the interval, the joy wanes. RRR Full Movie is perfection anyhow because the way Rajamouli pulls off some scenes, you wonder if he could have done a better job in others.
But watch it this weekend if you are craving for a good action packed drama. Especially if you’re a fan of the lead pair. Baahubali movies, apart from making a splash at the box office, helped the Telugu film industry to become popular across the country.
Naturally, RRR Movie is expected to reach that benchmark and it is largely thanks to the stellar performances of Ram Charan and Jr NTR. After several delays due to the pandemic, RRR Movie hit the screens at the right time without compromising on the post production work to hit the screens early.
In technical terms, it leaves Bahubali far behind. Even the surreal action sequences get you so excited that you forget the logic going out the window. The criticism of RRR Full Movie is that it lacks proper writing and proper writing for the female characters.
Like all Indian films, it has a troupe of a young woman waiting to be saved by our masculine hero. While Jr NTR and Ram Charan play compelling leads, it is not surprising that they were playing Hulk and Thor, given that they are marred by wild beasts and bullet injuries.
Ultimately RRR Full Movie is a well made semi-fictional historical drama with just the right amount of “mass” movements to satisfy the audience. Rajamouli has clearly done his homework and has shown us yet again why he is the most consistent director in Telugu cinema.
Rajamouli perhaps strikes a perfect balance between the emotional quotient and the extravaganza with RRR Full Movie. Despite not having such a good storyline, RRR movie is one of its kind theatrical experience.
