From writer-director S. S. Rajamouli (Baahubali) comes the international blockbuster that has enchanted movie audiences of all ages with its jaw-dropping action sequences, swooning romantic intrigue, infectious musical numbers— including the sensation “Naatu Naatu”—and rousing central friendship between two pre-Independence revolutionaries, played by Telugu-language megastars Ram Charan and N.T. Rama Rao, Jr. (better known as Jr. NTR).
From an original story by V. Vijayendra Prasad, the historical action epic RRR (short for Rise, Roar, Revolt) follows the fictionalized paths of real-life freedom fighters Alluri Sitarama Raju (Charan) and Komaram Bheem (Rama Rao) as they come together in 1920s Delhi to battle the nefarious British Raj for the rescue of a kidnapped girl from Bheem’s tribe.
Reuniting Rajamouli with his established team of craftspeople (including composer M.M. Keeravani, director of photography K.K. Senthil Kumar, film editor A. Sreekar Prasad, production designer Sabu Cyril, costume designer Rama Rajamouli, and visual effects supervisor V. Srinivas Mohan), R.R.R. began production in Hyderabad in Southern India beginning in November 2018 and wrapped in August 2021 (with additional scenes shot in Ukraine and Bulgaria) after several disruptions halted filming due to COVID-19. With a budget of $72 million, it’s the most expensive Indian production to date.
