S.S. Rajamouli's RRR has featured in many top Hollywood experts' and trackers' lists of top contenders for the awards season and as the big league awards arrive closer, the film lives up to the expectations quite ceremoniously. RRR has been nominated for two major awards at the upcoming Golden Globes Awards which are to be held in January 2023.
The film has cracked the Best Picture, Non-English Language and Best Original Song categories. In the former category, RRR is pitted against Edward Berger's Netflix war epic All Quiet in the Western Front (German), Park Chan-wook's superb moody romance thriller Decision to Leave (South Korean), Belgian film Close, and Santiago Mitre's historical drama Argentina, 1985.
For the Best Original Song, M.M. Keeravani's rendition, with Kaala Bhairava & Rahul Sipligunj's vocals and Chandrabose's lyrics, will compete against the works of Rihanna, Taylor Swift, Lady Gaga, and others. Swift's "Carolina" from the film Where the Crawdads Sing finds itself a nomination and so does the track "Ciao Papa" from Guillermo Del Toro's Pinnochio along with Lady Gaga & Blood Pop's "Hold My Hand" from Top Gun: Maverick and "Lift Me Up" from Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.
RRR has been nothing less than a phenomenon since its theatrical release in March 2023. The film, as one of the most expensive Indian films made to date, went on to gross close to Rs. 1200 crores worldwide but beyond that, it attracted fandom from all parts of the globe - from the larger-than-life setting, the music, and the huge production value to the jaw-dropping stunts & action sequences and Rajamouli's mastery over the craft, audiences across the world have helped RRR become a cult success over the past nine months.
