RRR Movie Review and Rating!

India’s top director SS Rajamouli’s highly-anticipated project, RRR featuring NTR and Ram Charan in the lead roles has hit the screens worldwide today. Let’s see how it fares.

Story: Set in the 1920 time period in the pre-independence British era, the film revolves around a tribal girl from the Adilabad district who will be forcefully taken away by the British Queen (role played by Alison Doody). To bring back her, a fiery man named Komaram Bheem goes to Delhi along with a few tribal men. To track the whereabouts of the girl, Bheem changes his identity as a Muslim guy and keeps waiting for the right opportunity to enter the British kingdom in Delhi. In the process, Bheem crosses paths with British policeman Alluri Seethaaramaraaju (Ram Charan)? What kind of hurdles will Bheem undergo while rescuing the girl? What circumstances bring Ram and Bheem under one roof? To know that, you have to watch the film in the theatres near you.

Performances: Both NTR and Ram Charan lived in their roles and gave their best for the film. While Tarak’s physical transformation as a tribal guy in the rugged avatar is amazing, Ram Charan just nailed it as a tough cop during the first half and his makeover as Alluri Seethaaramaraaju during the pre-climax portions is outstanding.

As an actor, Tarak shines yet again in his role that is emotional hard-hitting. His performance during the action sequences will attract the mass audience. On the other hand, Ram Charan gave settled and balanced acting throughout the film. Both the heroes worked hard on every aspect of the film which is clearly visible on screen. The bromance between both heroes is showcased nicely.

Alia Bhatt, Olivia Morris, Samuthirakani, Shriya Saran, Ajay Devgn, Rahul Ramakrishna, Stevenson, Alison are okay in their respective supporting roles. But those who expect some romantic angle from Ram Charan and Alia Bhatt will be disappointed as the heroine character is limited to a couple of scenes.

Technicalities: The cinematography by KK Senthil Kumar is top-notch as the ace cinematographer showcased the entire film on a rich note. He captured the mood of the film in a brilliant manner. Editing by A Sreekar Prasad is not up to the mark as he failed to keep the film’s runtime within the limits.

Surprisingly, the music MM Keeravaani lacks freshness in it. Except for a couple of situational songs and background score for a few blocks, the music department fails to register. Dialogues by Sai Madhav Burra are okay at parts and the production design by Sabu Cyril is fine. Production values for this star-studded film are rich.

Analysis: Rajamouli who has been continuously scoring success by using emotional drama as his key USB has failed to utilise the same formula for RRR as most of the film runs on hero elevation scenes more than character establishment episodes.

Looks like Rajamouli was a bit confused regarding the detailing about Ajay Devgn and Alia Bhatt characters as their purpose in the film is not showcased with proper emotional proceedings. As most of the film runs on NTR and Charan elevation scenes, the film has no scope for other commercial elements.

To summerize, RRR is a pre-independence patriotic drama that has enough fan moments from both heroes. On the flip side, the shortage of emotional connectivity and lack of repeat value stands tall as the demerits for the movie. In box office prospects, the film will definitely generate massive revenues during this weekend but the long run is purely dependent on the word of mouth from the family audience.

Verdict: Bromance between Tarak and Charan works!

Rating: 3.5/5
