Filmmaker Joe Russo is the latest Hollywood celebrity to shower praise on SS Rajamouli-directed RRR, calling the film a “well-done epic”. Joe and his brother Anthony Russo, credited for directing blockbusters such as Captain America: Winter Soldier, Captain America: Civil War and two Avengers films, are currently on a three-day trip to India to promote their Netflix movie The Gray Man.
Joe said he watched RRR after it became available on the streaming platform Netflix and found it to be a great story about brotherhood. “It’s big at the moment because of Netflix, RRR was a great movie. I thought it was really a well-done epic, (with) nice strong themes, great visuals and a really powerful story about brotherhood,” Joe told an agency at an event. Released theatrically in March, RRR has made over Rs 1,200 crore at the global box office. The film premiered on Netflix on May 20 and soon became the most popular movie from India on the streamer globally. In recent weeks, an array of Hollywood artists, including Doctor Strange director Scott Derrickson and writer C Robert Cargill, Joe Dante of Gremlins fame, Guardians of the Galaxy films director James Gunn, Dune screenwriter Jon Spaihts and filmmaker Christopher Miller, have lauded the movie for being an extravagant visual spectacle.
