RRR (2022)

"Few films will ever attempt to achieve what RRR has in it's 3 hour run-time, nor should they.  Because RRR has something magical, some crazed sense of belief that anything is possible, anything is achievable if your heart and spirit are in it.

In filmmaking, it's that collective belief that any of these stories get told, that any of these outlandish ideas and thoughts, ever get put to paper, and eventually put to screen.  And it can be beautiful."

A crowning achievement of Indian cinema (Telugu and Bollywood alike), RRR is everything a movie can be and more.  Quite literally.

It can be an underdog story, it can be a romance, it can be a musical, it can be a buddy story.  It can be the story of a lovable, courageous, barrel-chested hero, hell-bent on rescuing a kidnapped young girl from his tribe.  Or it can be the story of a disillusioned, battle-hardened, anti-hero looking for a thread of redemption whilst having to police against his own people.
