RRR (Theatrical Release India 2022)

 Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.5|5.0 Starsìììì 

RRR—3-hour epic from India—mixes beautiful singing/dancing and romance with serious action scenes supported by deeply-drawn characters and a power story that will not soon be forgotten. The movie examines clash of cultures, justice, and dominance of the wealthier class over the poorer classes. While the biological improbability of survival after the more violent scenes detracts from the story, the relief of seeing the heroes and heroines carrying through relieves much of the tension found throughout the movie. There are currently no English voice overs, but the subtitles are excellent. Watch this movie at home as the film moves very fast and has a lot of story densely packed into its 180 minutes and additional time may be needed to catch all dialogue in the subtitles with a quick rewind. The movie is more than good enough to overcome this small obstacle. Know and be aware that the violence and brutality are sometimes shocking and exceptionally graphic. The movie is not suitable for children or the younger audience. It is a good study of action films originating from India, their flow and continuity.

This action-drama film is about vengeance, revenge, and establishing where true loyalties lie within the relationships between Indian populations and the British during British occupation of India.

? Yes? No? Maybe? 

Yes. The movie is action packed from beginning to end and is an interesting exploration of sparks that activate rebellion in foreign-occupied territories. Be aware that the movie is exceptionally graphic in its violence. War scenes perform almost at the level of brutality as seen in some films that originate in South American countries. The film is not for the faint of heart.
