Forget Bollywood. This ferocious and wildly entertaining alternate history, a FilmColumbia favorite, soars straight out of Tollywood, the Telugu-language film industry, helmed by two of its biggest stars. Blending action, adventure, visual effects, myth and music, the film tells the fictitious story of two legendary Indian revolutionaries before they fought for independence from the British Raj in the 1920s. The pair likely never met in real life, but their “what if” collision course is overstuffed with hyperbolic cinematic treats. Seeing is believing, especially on the big screen.
The show will include a 15-minute intermission.
“RRR, a bigger-than-life and bolder-than-mainstream action-adventure epic, is performing mightily in international release as audiences marvel at its spectacle, embrace its emotions, and sway to its music while being repeatedly gobsmacked by its unfettered audacity.” — Joe Leydon, Variety
