This year's big Indian blockbuster, RRR (Rise Roar Revolt), is worthy of its growing reputation. I was reminded of 1975's Sholay and that's the highest of compliments. This 3-hour epic presents a high-octane alternative history of the people's uprising against the (very evil) British Raj, with cranked up dance numbers and memorable action set pieces that walk the high wire between absurd and awesome. Trust me when I say you will see things in RRR you've never seen elsewhere. The two leads are immensely cool and essentially played as Indian superheroes - Bheem is a sweet "tribal" with the strength of a lion and a certain animal empathy; Ram is an intense, unstoppable Terminator with perfect marksmanship. They were made to be friends (the bromance is really the best part of this), but Fate is cruel to the two of them and puts them on a collision course from the beginning. Water vs. Fire is a recurring theme. Despite the comical and rousing action, it IS very violent - there's an element of martyrdom to any revolution story - just mentioning it in case you were interested for the musical aspect. But RRR is funny, emotional, insane in the best way... and though I don't understand the language, I really liked its songs.
I haven't even seen this yet, but I'm amazed that this hasn't appeared on any lists yet. It's popularity is pretty tremendous right now.
This is maybe my first Tollywood movie that I've ever watched, and I enjoyed the heck out of it. Some scenes are beyond imaginable for me. You might see things in this movie that you've never seen or imagined before. This film is very patriotic. I always had a strong sympathy for the Indian people because the American Colonies also had to fight off the British.
to see which of your friends have seen this movie!
