S Rajamouli, with ‘RRR’ proved that he has his finger on the pulse of the audience. The film was supported by a huge audience in both India as well as abroad and the incredible box office collection it did is just a testament to how far and wide the film has traveled. With a lot of buzz that the film has created, a new post that is now going viral comes from an Australian journalist named Melinda Farrell. In her tweet, Farrell appears to be asking people for one Bollywood movie and somehow netizens found it to be the “most apt” description of the RRR movie.
“A friend recommends me a Bollywood movie but can’t remember the title. It is about a man who has to rescue his sister after she is kidnapped from the village and discovered by an undercover police officer. It includes a large scene with tigers and bears in a palace. Can anyone help?’ read the tweet. Under the tweet, he wrote, “Twitter to the rest! Thanks everyone! RRR it’s good to find out it’s actually a Tollywood film.”

“RRR (rise roar revolt)… It’s not a Bollywood film, it’s a Telugu film but it’s a multi-language release the biggest blockbuster in India, USA, Japan and the world… Enjoy the film,” he wrote on Twitter user. Another person wrote, “NOT bollywood movie. Just say Telugu movie. RRR.”
The film is set in the 1920s when India was under the British Raj and highlights the atrocities the British carried out against Indians.
Given the way films work, the film, in its limited time frame, could only manage to show a fraction of the brutality inflicted on Indians by the settlers.
However, a British historian named Robert Tombs thinks otherwise. Earlier, a report went viral which claimed that the professor of French History at Cambridge University wrote an article for ‘The Spectator’ claiming that the portrayal of the British in ‘RRR’ was ‘unusually ugly and at the same time amazing. fool.”
According to The Spectator, in the letter, he wrote: “To depict British officials and soldiers roaming the country committing random crimes is a sign of utter ignorance or willful dishonesty… So films like RRR do not reveal some hidden truth about the past. nor do they express genuine popular feelings. They are trying to inflame synthetic emotions… Netflix should be ashamed of themselves for promoting this.”
