Ultra epic teaser of RRR, the new film from the director of The Legend of Baahubali

RRR wants to embody all “the glory of Indian cinema”.

Nothing to do with the prehistoric comedy of Alain Chabat and the Robin Hoods: RRR, acronym of “Rise, Roar, Revolt” (“to rise, to roar and to revolt”), is the new film of SS Rajamouli. Either the director of The Legend of Baahubali (in two parts and available on Netflix), one of the biggest boxes of Indian cinema (Tamil to be precise), an odyssey of fantasy disproportionately epic, to pass off any Star wars for a cheap parody (we’ve been getting drunk for five years with). Not much is known about the plot of RRR, which takes place in India in 1920 and tells the story of the fight of two revolutionaries (NT Rama Rao Jr. and Ram Charam), at the same time allies and adversaries … This very short teaser, which promises historical battles and thousands of extras more or less digital, above all promises to “bring back all the glory of Indian cinema”. On the menu, a flying tiger, motorcycles, shootings, slow motion, an alternation of very wide shots and very close-ups … Bonus for us babtous of the Telugu cinema: the presence in the credits of Ray Stevenson (Titus Pullo in Rome) and Alison Doody (Elsa Schneider in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade). The teaser promises us a world cinema release on January 7, 2022. Well, it seems that “world” is here a synonym of “Indian”, but we still hope to see maybe RRR on the big screen in France …
