On October 6, it emerged that the producers of RRR submitted their beloved film in up to 15 categories at the 95th Academy Awards. It was a big move as the action drama artist was snubbed by the Film Federation of India (FFI). In exchange, hello show, was selected as India’s official Oscar entry. It broke the hearts of millions of moviegoers, not only in India, but all over the world, like RRR It would have sparked a bit of madness and it would have been a sure winner. Therefore, when the producers made it clear that they were still in the running for the Oscars, it sparked jubilation.
Why The Oscars Need RRR More Than RRR Needs The Oscars
However, it has to be the Oscars that got the last and biggest laugh. RRR is exactly what the Oscars need to regain a record audience. For those unaware, TV ratings for the Oscars are steadily declining except for 2019 and 2021. In 2015, 37.3 million viewers watched the awards show. In 2016, 2017 and 2018, the figures were 34.4 million, 32.9 million and 26.6 million viewers respectively. The number rose to 29.6 million for the 2019 ceremony, but fell to 23.6 million viewers in 2020. In 2021, the numbers dropped to 10.5 million viewers, with the ceremony taking place at smaller scale due to the pandemic. At the 2022 ceremony, the numbers rose to 15.36 million.
Unfortunately, the ceremony held this year, which was also the 94th, is remembered by most for the slap gate controversy, which involved Will Smith and Chris Rock. Ask a non-cinephile which movies won this year and they’ll have a hard time remembering.
In such a scenario, RRR could turn out to be a godsend. The Telugu film, which has been dubbed into Hindi and other languages, did huge business in India and traditional overseas markets upon its release on March 25, 2022. The epic scale seen in the trailer, the presence of two big stars (Jr NTR and Ram Charan) as well as Hindi movie stars, Alia Bhatt and Ajay Devgn, helped the film to create buzz. But above all, SS Rajamouli’s partnership as co-writer and director played a big role. He has crazy followers, even more after the Baahubali series. Therefore, RRR he was expected to do well.
But what was unexpected was that it generated an impact on American audiences like never before. The internet is full of videos of Western audiences dancing, cheering and screaming during RRR of projection ! Several Hollywood personalities tweeted how much they loved the film. The Russo brothers, who came to India in July to promote the gray manThey also expressed their admiration for RRR.
