S.S Rajamouli got no competition but himself. RRR, currently the sixth highest-grossing Indian film, has crossed 700 crores. Made on a budget of Rs 336 crore, excluding GST and cast & crew honorarium, it is one of the most expensive Indian projects, and his passion for magnificence and precision is evident in every frame of cinematic delight.
RRR is a fictional story set in the pre-independence era of the 1920s and based on the lives of Alluri Sitarama Raju (Ram Charan) and Komaram Bheem (Jr NTR). The two become close friends despite not understanding each other’s genuine intents or motivations for their acts for or against the British kingdom. What happens if the truth eventually comes out?
The film also stars Ajay Devgn, Alia Bhatt, Samuthirakani, and Shriya Saran in critical roles. The Hindi version, earning ₹120 crores in six days, broke a record by becoming the best performing Hindi film in week one of the post-pandemic era, beating Akshay Kumar’s Suryavanshi and Allu Arjun’s Pushpa: The Rise.
It remains to be seen if John Abraham’s film Attack and Marvel’s Morbius, starring Jared Leto will affect RRR’s momentum this weekend.
Let’s see what this weekend has planned for RRR!
