DNA cinephile🏳️🌈’s review published on Letterboxd:
RRR. 2022. Directed by S.S. Rajamouli.
RRR (2022) is a force to be reckoned with as it shows British Colonialism abated by two unlikely friends from indigenous genetics. S.S. Rajamouli has created a timeless masterpiece that will live on and become a classic. The three hour epic is well every minute. There are so many great films from 2022, and RRR is among the best. Netflix has stacked up some fine entertainment with infinite messages. RRR showcases the beast of colonialism and the cancer it has spread around the world.
Alison Doody and Ray Stevenson portray some of the most disturbed, vile British rulers who lack the power to bring India to her knees. Thanks to Bheem (N.T. Rama Rao Jr.) and Raju (Ram Charan Teja) and their friendship that knows no bounds, the British are forced to reconcile. Dancing and singing have never been so entertaining in an Indian action film!
RRR also had the perfect balance of cgi, dancing/musical numbers mixed with hardcore violence. Each element balanced out its polarity in a way that made three hours seem like an hour and a half. RRR is definitely one of the best films of the year.
Viewed on Netflix.
