Our Banana Meter critic Shaurya Chawla has been talking up RRR on social media (and podcasts) for weeks. Today, he sits down with the visual effects supervisor of the film, Srinivas Mohan.
RRR has become one of the biggest sensations in global cinema this year, trending in several countries after its Netflix launch and re-release in movie theaters.
Plot: It is a fictional story about two real-life Indian revolutionaries, Alluri Sitarama Raju (Charan) and Komaram Bheem (Rama Rao), and their fight against the British Raj. Set in 1920, the plot explores the undocumented period in their lives when both the revolutionaries chose to go into oblivion before they began the fight for their country.
I had the pleasure of sitting down with Srinivas Mohan, the visual effects supervisor, who discussed his process of designing the movie’s most complex sequences, his visual methods over the years, and his inspirations, as well as the global response the movie has received.
RRR is still in select theaters across the country and can be streamed on Netflix.
