The big-mammoth Telugu film RRR was released today on a Pan-India level in different languages. RRR is based on a fictional story about two Indian revolutionaries. Alluri Sitarama Raju (Charan) and Komaram Bheem (Rama Rao), fought against the British Raj and Nizam of Hyderabad respectively.

The period drama brings together two of Telugu cinema’s biggest stars – Ram Charan and Jr NTR. The movie also stars Alia Bhatt and Ajay Devgn in extended cameos. If the buzz is anything to go by, then RRR is set to create a new opening day box office record this Friday.

As per reports, the budget of RRR has exceeded the budget of SS Rajamouli’s last film Baahubali: The Conclusion by at least Rs 100 crore. As mentioned in The Indian Express report, Andhra Pradesh Minister Perni Nani has revealed in a press statement that the producers have already spent Rs 336 crores and it will further exceed Rs 400 crores.

The excitement is high among the team of RRR too. Jr NTR, who’s previously collaborated with SS Rajamouli in Student No 1 (2001), Simhadri (2003), and Yamadonga (2007), said, “This movie will be an emotional rollercoaster. There will be times when you’ll hold onto your seats, wanting to pull it out, rip it apart. You’ll laugh, cry, you’ll be many things!”

The first reviews of RRR are here and the audience is once again blown away by the scale and the grandeur of the film. Twitter is now flooded with the audience’s reviews of the film.

Movie-goers and fans have called this film even bigger than the Baahubali series that set the Box Office on fire. RRR also once again proves Rajamouli as the ultimate visionary. Speaking about the inspiration in his films, Rajamouli once said, “My films will always have narratives that are inspired by itihaas. I am deeply influenced by the Mahabharata and the Ramayana. They somehow come out in various forms but it isn’t deliberate. I don’t think there is any emotion that isn’t written in the Mahabharata or the Ramayana.”

Seems like the viewers resonate with Rajamouli’s inspiration behind RRR. One of the Twitter users posted, “What a Film : Intense Friendship, Action + Emotion Make it more powerful (sic).” Another user tweeted, “Overall it was a gud watch. #RRR Didn’t expect #RamCharan to be this gud in #RRRMovie Loved him totally.”

“First half picked up so gud..nd then mindblowing interval with best climax. #SSRajamouli Legend ❤️ (sic).” One user compared RRR with Baahubali 2 and wrote, “I watched the Hindi premier and OMG!!!”

“U all are not at all ready to witness the scale @ssrajamouli has gone to this masterpiece 10 times better than #Bahubali2 @RRRMovie well done!! (sic).”
