The past films of famed director S.S. Rajamouli have certainly been grand spectacles. But with his 2022 release of RRR, Rajamouli redefined what it means to truly create awe in a cinematic landscape littered with formulaic blockbusters that barely raise the pulse. When a Gond child is abducted by the local British administrator, tribe guardian Komaram Bheem (N.T. Rama Rao Jr.) leaves for Delhi in disguise to stage a rescue. Word of his mission reaches the administration, and proven Indian Imperial Police officer A. Rama Raju (Ram Charan Teja) is assigned to thwart all attempts while also in disguise. Yet fate, or in this case an off-the-rails train, forges an unlikely friendship between the two that will lead them on an action-packed journey filled with betrayal, revenge, and a whole lot of dancing. This PFF31 special screening of RRR continues our monthly showings of this international sensation. Whether you already know how to naatu naatu or it’s your first time, get ready to cheer, scream, laugh, and enjoy a one-of-a-kind cinematic experience.
