Review in Brief: RRR (2022)

SS Rajamouli’s RRR will get a reaction from you, that’s for sure. Never mind the latest from Marvel, DC or Tom Cruise, this is the big film with the most awesome imagery of 2022 and it’s not even close. Said awesome imagery includes, but is by no means limited to the sight an entire menagerie of animals bursting in slow-motion out of the back of a truck to charge/maul/eat colonial oppressors. This film turns two real Indian revolutionaries (Komaram Bheem and Alluri Sitarama Raju) into folk heroes and tells their story of rebellion and resistance against the British Empire as a warm buddy movie, a lavish Bollywood (actually Telugu language) musical and a thrilling action epic full of explosions, cartoony baddies and fantastical fight choreography. At 3 hours it’s a commitment but the time flies by, chiefly due to the winning chemistry of stars NT Rama Rao Jr and Ram Charam and the film’s searing visuals. This is without doubt, the most cinema.
