An action-packed spectacular that mythologizes two real-life freedom fighters who helped lead India’s fight for independence from the British Raj: Komaram Bheem (Jr NTR) and Alluri Sitarama Raju (Ram Charan).

Though these two men never met in real life, RRR imagines a fictional team-up between the two fighters as they tackle colonial British forces amid staggeringly choreographed action sequences and an all-timer (or three) of a musical number. Easily one of the most rousing action films made in the last few years, made with a giddy, child-playing-with-his-toys logic. Presented with its original Telugu language dialogue!

“It’s about perseverance and the power of working together toward a common goal. Those themes are universally relatable—as is the giddy thrill of watching racist forces of imperial oppression get exactly what’s coming to them.” (Polygon)

“Rajamouli shoots the film’s action with hallucinogenic fervor, supercharging scenes with a shimmering brand of extended slow-motion and CGI that feels less ‘generated’ than unleashed.” (NY Times)
