RRR, the historical drama directed by SS Rajamouli, is gearing up for a crucial Oscar nomination announcement day in the coming week. After bagging a series of wins in several award ceremonies in the recent weeks, movie buffs across the globe are batting for RRR to bag nominations across multiple categories in Oscars - Best Picture, Best Director, Best Original Song, Best Actor, to name a few.
Earlier this week, a leading US-based publication, USA today, has hailed Jr NTR’s act in RRR and labelled it an Oscar-worthy performance in their latest predictions list. In a ‘Top 10’ list titled ‘Attention, Oscars! We hope these 10 brilliant performances feel the love at Academy Awards’, USA Today has featured Jr NTR’s performance in RRR alongside actors like Paul Mescal (Aftersun), Paul Dano (The Batman) and Tom Cruise (Top Gun: Maverick).
“The charismatic Rao has the edge for leading an army of wild animals and juggling a motorcycle with ease,” the publication wrote while calling RRR an audience-friendly powerhouse: Jr NTR, in the film, is cast as Komaram Bheem, who disguises as Akhtar, to find a tribal girl Malli, who has been kidnapped by a British officer. Ram Charan, Alia Bhatt, Ajay Devgn, Samuthirakani, Shriya Saran, Olivia Morris too essay important roles in RRR, which has music by MM Keeravaani.
With cinematography by K Senthil Kumar, RRR was edited by Sreekar Prasad and had production design by Sabu Cyril.
