With the high octane intros for his characters to building them to the fullest strength SS Rajamouli doesn’t left any loopholes & predictable cinema moves.
Set in the Adilabad district of pre-Independent India in the 1920s, Malli is kidnapped by Britishers for her lovely voice. Bheem (Jr NTR) is entrusted with bringing her back whereas Raam (Ram Charan) takes the bounty to catch him.
When director SSR Rajamouli says that both the stars are vital for the narrative, he means it seriously. We see that in RRR where both the actors do well sticking to their strengths.
NTR playing Bheem is the emotional anchor of the whole movie. It is why he scores the brownie points. The intro is on expected lines, but the pre-interval block and Komaram Bheemudo sequence stands out. Right from the start, his character arc grows in strength before sharing it with the other star.
It brings us to Ram Charan. His character is developed keeping in mind the story of RRR. It doesn’t deviate for the sake of heroism until the last half an hour in the second half. The introduction sets things perfectly in that regard where Raam is presented ruthlessly. Compare this to Bheem, Jr NTR’s intro is more cinematic and hence seems better.
