Verdict on RRR
RRR is an epic action movie following two revolutionaries who risk everything to stop a tyrant British Governor. It shows the two men from different backgrounds in different fights that clash to keep their covers.
This is a movie that shows the two stories coming together as the two different warriors lead the battle back against the ruthless British soldiers. It shows how arrogant the British soldiers were and how they treated the Indians like dirt.
The battle sequences are the standout here, with breath-taking moments in each sequence. Using the local wildlife in the battles helps increase the stakes, showing that the whole of India was standing up for itself. While the story is about two real revolutionaries, a lot of the story has been put together for more entertaining purposes. This is an all-out over-the-top action movie that never holds back on the crazy ideas brought to the table.
Where to Watch: RRR is available on Netflix now.
Final Thoughts – RRR is an all-out wildly over-the-top action movie.
