RRR Thursday, July 6, 2023 6 p.m.-9 p.m.
RRR is an exhilarating, action-packed spectacular mythologizing two real-life freedom fighters who helped lead India’s fight for independence from the British Raj: Komaram Bheem (Jr NTR) and Alluri Sitarama Raju (Ram Charan). Set in the 1920s, RRR imagines a fictional meeting between the two, set into motion when a young Gond girl is stolen from her village by British soldiers. With a powerful message, staggeringly choreographed action sequences, and musical numbers, RRR brings sheer big-screen joy from start to finish.
RRR is part of the film series Spotlight on Indian Cinema, presented in conjunction with the MFAH exhibition Woven Wonders: Indian Textiles from the Parpia Collection. The series showcases the variety of classic and contemporary Indian cinema.
