Apart from the humongous business done by the film, RRR has earned exceptional critical acclaim and has been considered one of the finest ‘commercial’ films ever produced by the Indian film industry. The makers of RRR decided to join the Oscar race independently after the SS Rajamouli directorial failed to become India’s official entry. Meanwhile, SS Rajamouli went on to win the prestigious New York Film Critics Circle award for Best Director, for the film. RRR has earned two Golden Globes 2023 nominations, in the Best Picture Non English and Best Song categories.
Ram Charan and Jr NTR played the real-life freedom fighters Alluri Sitarama Raju and Komuram Bheem in the SS Rajamouli directorial. The movie, which is based on a fictional meeting of these two historical figures, featured Alia Bhatt in a cameo appearance as Sitarama Raju’s lady love, Sita. Bollywood actor Ajay Devgn was also seen in a special appearance in the magnum opus. MM Keeravani composed the songs and original score for RRR.
