The period action film RRR, directed by SS Rajamouli and featuring Ram Charan and Jr. NTR in the key roles, has received a resoundingly positive response from Western audiences, who are completely enamoured with the Telugu megahit. The renowned actor Danny DeVito is the most recent to jump on the RRR bandwagon.
Danny DeVito has played significant roles in movies like Batman Returns, L.A. Confidential, Jumanji: The Next Level, One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, and Jumanji: The Next Level. He will also soon be heard portraying Satan in the adult animated sitcom Little Demon. In a recent interview, the 77-year-old actor gushed over RRR and discussed his love for Bollywood.
Danny is merely the most recent international celebrity to laud the film. Hollywood directors have praised the movie before, with the most recent praise coming from Edgar Wright and Joe and Anthony Russo. In an interview with India Today, he discussed the movie and his upcoming show Little Demon. He said “Oh, I love Bollywood big time. In fact, as a matter of fact, a few days back, I watched RRR and another one R… Rajkumar, it was really good! I think if I had my way next season or whenever I could talk everybody into it, we should definitely bust into a big number.”
Edgar Wright, the filmmaker of Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, Baby Driver, and Last Night in Soho, claimed he recently watched RRR at the British Film Institute (BFI) and thought it was “entertaining” to watch.

What a rip-roaring good time. Such a good time. The first movie I’ve ever seen that had a round of applause for the intermission card itself, Saturday saw a tweet from the 48-year-old director. Wright was praised for all the compliments by the RRR official Twitter page.
SS Rajamouli’s movie also features Bollywood stars Alia Bhatt and Ajay Devgn in cameo appearances as Ram Charan’s wife and father, respectively. The film has received accolades from directors of Baby Driver, Doctor Strange, Guardians of the Galaxy, James Gunn, and Avengers: Endgame.
After receiving a lot of praise from Hollywood, RRR is being hailed as the best wager for India’s chances of winning the Academy Award for Best International Feature Film at the Oscars the following year. If SS Rajamouli’s masterpiece is submitted as India’s entry to the Oscars, according to Anurag Kashyap, the country has a 99% chance of receiving a nomination in the top five.
