Rise, Roar, Revolt, aka RRR, is the most insanely entertaining movie of the year. Think early Michael Bay/John Woo over-the-top ridiculousness, but done with more heart, better CGI, and hilarity.
Director S.S. Rajmouli has crafted a three-hour epic war movie for the ages. To describe the plot is pointless since the reasons to see RRR are the charismatic lead performances by Bheem (N.T. Rama Rao Jr.) and Alluri Sitarama Raju (Ram Charan) and the creative action. While the action overuses slow motion, it quickly makes up for it with sheer inventiveness. I didn’t think I would ever see a man throwing a motorcycle, wild animals as weapons, and a bridge fire scene that has to be experienced. And I’m happy that I did.
While the action is non-stop, the dancing is also admirable. If you don’t believe me – check out this clip of “Naatu Naatu.” The buzz might be about Margot Robbie dancing in BABYLON, but “Naatu Naatu” takes the award for best dance number in 2022.
Mix some “fire” with “water” and watch RRR on Netflix. Gather a group of friends, have a few drinks, and enjoy the best time at the movies in 2022.
