This film title has different abbreviations in different languages but commonly called RRR. Roudram Ranam Rudhiram in Telugu, Raththam Ranam Rowthiram in Tamil, Roudra Rana Rudhira in Kannada, Rudhiram Ranam Roudhram in Malayalam (all of which translate to Rage, War, Blood) and Rise Roar Revolt in both Hindi and English.
RRR operates on a relatively simple premise. It is “flame” – an angry young cop Ramaraju (Ram Charan) who is both revered and feared by the British. He’s been doing all of their bidding for years, he’s someone they sic at whoever they want to shoot and yet he’s someone who can never be respected for the color of his skin. Then there’s “water” – Bheem (Jr NTR) is sweet, simple and innocent, has brute force but only uses it when it serves her purpose.
He is a Gond tribe who has come to town to save a young girl named Malli, who has been turned into a singing doll by Lady Scott (Alison Doody) “over (her)’s fireplace”. But that is just the beginning of the tale. But he also finds shelter with Muslims in Delhi. Ramaraju might seem like a welltrained soldier who will follow instructions blindly but he also seems to have a past no one but his uncle (Samuthirakani) knows about.
Scott (Ray Stevenson) might believe
brown rubbish deserve even a bullet to be wasted on them but Jennifer (Olivia Morris) seems more empathetic. This is not the freedom movement where you turn the other cheek, this is the one where you use your hands as weapons. The first half of the RRR runs like the hands of a clock. There’s Malli’s emotional core, there’s song and dance with Naatu Naatu (it will make you smile) and a friendship discovered through Dosti, even a few laughs every time Bheem tries to bond friendship with Jennifer.
Cinematic liberties are worked out but they don’t seem to be as noticeable as in the later installments, where half of the footage is a bit saggy. Some scenes seem uncomfortably long because we already know some things a main character can’t do. The way Ramaraju’s bride, Sita (Alia Bhatt), is woven into the story, in addition to Ram Charan’s transformation into another appearance, also feels forced into a flowing narrative.
After the way Bheem is easily set up despite nothing being said, the way Ramaraju’s story unfolds seems tense. Highlights leave more to be desired. The good thing, though, is that the movie surprised you. Rajamouli also manages to skillfully use certain gimmicks established in the first part of the film in the latter part. Jr NTR achieved the best of his career. He’s charming as Bheem, especially in his emotional moments and his desperation to find Malli pass well, as is his love for Ramaraju.
Ram Charan also does well, infusing soul into the transformations his character goes through. The roles of Tarak and Charan require them to have chemistry. Alia Bhatt, Olivia Morris, Samuthirakani, Ajay Devgn, Shriya Saran and others are playing their roles very well. Olivia especially manages to win your heart. Alison and Ray moved on to their roles. Keeravani’s OST for the film may not be for everyone, but it fits the BGM very well. Senthil’s camera work is also a joy.
