SuperstaRRR NTR Jr has wowed the audience in theatres with his terrific pan-India debut in S S Rajamouli’s magnum opus RRR, which released today. It can be safely said that Tarak has risen above the expectations of the viewers, and roared with his performance in theatres. Undoubtedly, the RRR actor has the best fans, who brought in festival-like celebrations for him on the streets of Indian cities and across theatres.
Hailed as the man of the masses, NTR Jr struck a chord in Telugu, Hindi, Tamil, Malayalam, and Kannada. His fans were spotted carrying out a huge procession outside theatres; amid colours, posters and flags, people were chanting and cheering for Komaram Bheem (the character essayed by Tarak). Going down in history as NTR Jr’s first pan-India historical blockbuster, RRR is a larger-than-life world that has floored the fans to the hilt.
Fans were seen raining white streamers at NTR Jr’s first appearance in the film. His awe-inspiring introduction scene that shows him locking horns with a tiger was followed by frenzied fans roaring with abandon. Welcomed to the pan-India space of movies, Tarak has left the audience mesmerised with his portrayal of Bheem. Netizens have been uploading the highlights of his role in the film on social media and vouching that its box office collection will hit an astronomical figure.
Set in 1920, RRR explores the undocumented period in the lives of Komaram Bheem (Tarak) and Alluri Sitarama Raju (Ram Charan), when both the revolutionaries choose to go into oblivion before they joined the fight for independent India. Tarak hits a different gear as he is seen chanelling angst as Bheem, performing action and delivering dialogue in four languages including Hindi, Telugu, Tamil and Kannada. His bromance with Ram and their song ‘Naacho’ has inspired a dance fever that shows no signs of dying down.
Before the film’s release, Tarak was mobbed in every city he went to for its promotion. Thousands of fans were seen reaching for him and heard crying out his name and that of his character (in the film), Komaram Bheem. Not long ago, ardent fans from Florida tethered a message to the tail of a two-seater aircraft and flew it across the US skies. The message in the sky dedicated to the RRR star read: Thokkukuntapovale. It is a popular dialogue from the trailer of the Rajamouli directorial that translates to: ‘Ab aage se waar hoga’. The RRR actor’s grand entrance to the pan-India space hints at promising cinema in the future.
