Rajamouli does it again: Ram Charan, Jr NTR-starrer ‘RRR’ encompass brotherhood despite divergent goals



Film: ‘RRR’ (Running in Theatres)

Director: SS Rajamouli
Cast: Jr NTR, Ram Charan, Alia Bhatt, Olivia Morris, Ajay Devgn, Shriya Saran.
Music: M. M. Keeravani, Producer: D. V. V. Danayya
IANS Rating: ****

After being postponed multiple times, SS Rajamouli’s ‘RRR’ finally hit the screens on Friday. Ram Charan and NTR essaying the fictional roles of Alluri Sitarama Raju and Komaram Bheem respectively are exemplary in their acting abilities.

‘RRR’ story runs in the pre-independence era, which has the fictional alignment of two real-life heroes, who fought against the British, in different timelines of Indian history. Komaram Bheem and Alluri Sitarama Raju’s fictional characters are well-established, with a mutual purpose, which is kept under the wraps first.

Introducing Ram Charan as Rama Raju, the ruthless sepoy, who works to impress the oppressive British, his real intentions are kept undercover.

On the other hand, Komaram Bheem, who is the protector of his tribe, starts his journey towards revolting against the British. In search of a missing girl from his tribe, he travels to bring her back at any cost.

Rama Raju and Bheem bond well, as their destiny, unite them. But, their individual purposes result in them going against each other. The rest of the story is about how the duo meets their destiny, with their real goals leading to a mutual target.

Performances: Ram Charan, who had played an innocent, yet aggressive village boy in ‘Rangasthalam’, appears as a demonic, ruthless sepoy, who works under the oppressive British.

NTR, on the other hand, whose introduction blows everyone’s minds, is seen bringing down a huge tiger. His innocence reflects his tribe as he starts his journey to protect a little girl who goes missing.

Ram Charan and NTR, whenever on the screen together, emote brotherhood, and patriotic values, subtly.

Alia Bhatt, in her limited role, has done a fantastic job. Olivia Morris, on the other hand, looks apt. Ajay Devgn’s role is like an icing on the cake, as his role imbibes patriotism as well as fortitude. All the other actors have justified their roles well.

Analysis: Rajamouli’s screenplay is tricky, yet neat. He deals with the subject, brilliantly, and emotes the patriotic essence of the story in a subtle manner. With an excellent, well-paced first half, the second half has some tiny flaws.

All the songs, placed rightly, the most popular ‘Naatu Naatu’ takes the audience to trance, as it passes the euphoric wave across.

A decently high-octane interval, which does half of the job. A few minutes of lag in the second half, but the climax justifies it all.

The movie is an action entertainer with stellar performances and a multi-layered story.


Watch Tiger 3 Teaser: Salman Khan Goes All Guns Blazing & He Has A Special Message For India




Bollywood superstar Salman Khan is finally back with the third film of his blockbuster ‘Tiger’ franchise. On Wednesday, the actor, at last, unveiled the teaser of his highly anticipated Tiger 3, and within minutes, it took the internet by storm. In the film, he will be seen returning as the menacing RAW agent Tiger once again after six long years.

Sharing the teaser of Tiger 3, Salman wrote, “Jab tak Tiger mara nahi, tab tak Tiger haara nahi. #TigerKaMessage. #Tiger3 arriving in cinemas this Diwali. Releasing in Hindi, Tamil & Telugu.”

Tiger’s special message for India

In the teaser, he can be heard saying that he has returned, and this time, he has a special message for India.

He then proceeds to state that he has been labelled as a traitor in his own country, and now, India herself will tell his son that his father was not a traitor, but in fact, a true patriot.

Tiger 3 will also mark the return of Katrina Kaif as Zoya, however, the actress was missing in the teaser. The video only had a blink and miss appearance of the actress, and that too, in a flashback scene which showed her still from the 2017 film, Tiger Zinda Hai.

Besides, Tiger 3 is all set to introduce a brand new villain in the YRF Spy Universe. Emraan Hashmi will be seen playing the main antagonist in the film, and fans are excited to witness the showdown between Salman and Emraan for the first time ever.

And if that wasn’t enough, then Tiger 3 will also have a special cameo by none other than Shah Rukh Khan himself, who will assume his Pathaan avatar and come to the rescue of Tiger.

The uber-successful Tiger franchise

Salman Khan’s ‘Tiger’ franchise has given him two of the most successful films of his career. The very first film of the franchise, Ek Tha Tiger, released in the year 2012, followed by Tiger Zinda Hai in 2017.

The YRF Spy Universe kicked off back in 2012 with Ek Tha Tiger followed by Tiger Zinda Hai (2017), War (2019), and Pathaan (2023). It was Ek Tha Tiger and Tiger Zinda Hai’s humongous success that cemented Aditya Chopra’s belief that he could introduce two more larger-than-life spy agents, Kabir aka Hrithik Roshan in War and Pathaan aka Shah Rukh Khan in the YRF Spy Universe.

Directed by Maneesh Sharma, Tiger 3 is all set to hit the silver screens on Diwali this year.
