With consecutive victories at the Hollywood Critics Association Awards in Los Angeles, the RRR juggernaut keeps on. The film won ‘Best International Film’ along with three big awards, including Best Action Film, Best Stunts, and Best Original Song for the Oscar-nominated Naatu Naatu. The award was accepted by the movie’s director, SS Rajamouli, and star, Ram Charan. Jr NTR failed to appear for the event.
SS Rajamoul said during his acceptance speech, “Aaah! The best International film…Again to all my fellow filmmakers in India, it is for all of us to believe we can truly make International films! Thank you HCA for that…it means a lot. Thank you very much…a lot. Jai Hind.”
Meanwhile, Ram Charan said this while accepting the award, “I didn’t expect to come up (on the) stage, because I was told by my director to accompany him, so…thank you so much for giving us all this love, it’s just a great response, so we’re going to come back with better films and entertain you all. Thank you so much, thank you HCA.”
The international award season has been dominated by RRR. This year, RRR took home two Critics’ Choice Awards from the Los Angeles ceremony: Best Foreign Language Film and Best Original Song for Naatu Naatu.
At this year’s 80th Golden Globe Awards in Los Angeles, Naatu Naatu was also named Best Song. It has also received an Oscar nomination. The fictitious story RRR, which takes place in the 1920s, is based on two illustrious independence fighters, Alluri Seetharamaraju and Komaram Bheem.
Its cast, which featured Ram Charan and Jr NTR in the key parts, is remarkable. Alia Bhatt, Ajay Devgn, Olivia Morris, Samuthirakani, Alison Doody, and Ray Stevenson were also featured.
Positive reviews from critics were given to the movie when it first came out, and the public in India and throughout the world responded enthusiastically.
