Hollywood actor and screenwriter Patton Oswalt is mind blown by director SS Rajamouli’s magnum opus ‘RRR’.
Oswalt, who is a Primetime Emmy Award winner himself has recommended to his followers on Twitter that if they could, they should catch ‘RRR’ movie in the IMAX format on a large screen.
His tweet to his fans read, “If this ISN’T playing near you in IMAX then this is the next best way to watch it. Fucken @RRRMovie is insane (sic).” He followed that up by letting people know that the movie is currently streaming on Netflix.
He followed up that tweet, with another one that read, “You guys are out of your f**king minds, you should not be allowed to make films, and I can’t wait to see what you do next.”
Here is Oswalt’s tweet:
Rajamouli surpassed his own benchmark set with his previous magnum opus ‘Baahubali’ and ‘RRR’ managed to deliver on the superior expectations that audiences had with Rajamouli and his brand of larger-than-life cinema.
Seems like the Rajamouli’s movie magic has managed to captivate even the Hollywood film fraternity. Patton Oswald seems to be the latest from the Hollywood circuit to be insanely impressed with the movie.
Reviews of the movie in Variety by Joe Leydon read, “An a bigger-than-life and bolder-than-mainstream action-adventure epic, is performing mightily in international release as audiences marvel at its spectacle, embrace its emotions, and sway to its music while being repeatedly gobsmacked by its unfettered audacity.”
Deadline’s movie critic Stephanie Bunbury said that ‘RRR’ was bigger than ‘Ben-Hur’. In her review, she said, “From the first scene, when we see a young “tribal” girl stolen from her mother to become the British governor’s wife’s plaything, we are in a heady world of good versus evil.”
‘RRR’ made a spectacular debut in North America’s box office and raked in over $9.5 million (Rs. 74 crores). The opening day worldwide collection of the movie was a record Rs. 223 crores ($28.75 million). The movie soon breached the Rs. 1000 crores ($128.9 million) in global sales and became Rajamouli’s second consecutive movie to do so. His previous movie, ‘Baahubali: The Conclusion’ hit the Rs. 1000 crore mark within 10 days of its release.
‘RRR’ stars Ram Charan and Jr. NTR in lead roles. The movie is a fictional take of good vs evil set in British India and the battle fought by two iconic tribal leaders.
