RRR was also praised by the Indian audience on its theatrical release in different languages, which was followed by a successful OTT release with Netflix. The film remained on the Top 10 list for weeks in India and globally, however, the overbearing response from Hollywood left many confused. It also led many desis to view the film in a new light. RRR takes place during the British Raj in India and follows two friends with different ideals that end up on the opposite side of the same fight.

The magnus opus is about love, friendship, and ideals in a time when survival, and being able to live was the utmost priority. The film’s visuals, cast as well as storyline left many speechless. Now, even months after the Netflix release RRR is still trending on Twitter. Doctor Strange and The Black Phone director, Scott Derrickson praised the film on Twitter by saying, β€œTo celebrate my birthday last night, my wife, kids and I watched @RRRMovie β€” what an awesomely outrageous roller coaster of a movie. Loved it.”

Apart from Hollywood celebrities, many screenwriters too praised it too. Actor-writer Christopher Miller, Disney-Marvel illustrator Alice X Zhang, DC and MCU writer Jackson Lanzing, as well as screenwriter Larry Karaszewski have shared tweets praising the South Indian release.

SS Rajamouli revealed that RRR borrows from Indian mythological stories of Ramayana and Mahabharata. He said the two protagonists Alluri Sitarama Raju and Komaram Bheem, are modeled after their namesakes in Hindu mythology. While this may have been a part of the story for Indians or a speculative trope with the best friends trope from Bollywood, for the global audience the majestic portrayal of the heroes is hard to come by. Apart from a good story that comes full circle, the film brings a world-ending moment to the fate of mere humans, who dance, sing, and are really just people.

Meanwhile, Hollywood is used to turning humans into heroes through the script, with emotional turmoil and backstories. RRR, on the other hand, gives characters the chance to develop on screen. Let’s not forget how well the South Film Industry is known for making their heroes look like gods, even we’d cower before them. In RRR every scene and every dialogue for its superstars has been carefully curated to bring the character to life, to bring their meaning to life. Every shot of Alia Bhatt, Ajay Devgn proves how they are the heroes, the real deal.
