About the film:
An exhilarating, action-packed spectacular mythologizing two real-life freedom fighters who helped lead India’s fight for independence from the British Raj, Komaram Bheem and Alluri Sitarama Raju.
Set in the 1920s before their fight for India’s independence began, RRR imagines a fictional meeting between the two, set into motion when a young Gond girl is stolen from her village by British soldiers. With a powerful message, staggeringly choreographed action sequences, and an all-timer of a musical number, RRR is sheer big-screen joy from start to finish.
“intimate and enormous all at once… an unabashed return to everything that makes the cinematic experience great… nearly every scene of “RRR” feels like it could be somebody’s favorite”
—Siddhant Adlakha for IndieWire
