Jr NTR RRR, The Kashmir Files doesn’t make the Oscar 2023

SS Rajamouli’s RRR opened in theatres on March 25 and went on to emerge as a blockbuster at the box office. It received tremendous critical acclaim, with critics lauding its technical brilliance and engaging screenplay. Many even demanded that it be selected as India’s official entry to the Oscars 2023. This, however, did not happen as that honor went to Chhello Show, a Gujarati movie. Rajamouli fans are, unsurprisingly, not happy about the fact that his magnum opus failed to make the cut. RRR is a period drama, starring Jr NTR and Ram Charan.

RRR in Oscar Race

The Gujarati film is said to be partly an autobiographical drama that follows nine-year-old boy Samay, whose life turns upside down after watching his first movie. Nalin is known for his visually striking body of work in films like ‘Samsara’, ‘Valley of Flowers’ and ‘Angry Indian Goddesses’.

Earlier, when Anupam Kher was asked to comment on Anurag Kashyap’s comment that he hopes The Kashmir Files is not picked as India’s entry at the Oscars, Kher first refused to comment and then said, “Kaun hai woh, kaun hai Anurag Kashyap?” sarcastically as he added that this is what the media wanted to listen.

‘Last Film Show’, comes as a dark horse in this race for Oscar glory, especially at a time when Rajamouli’s RRR was tipped to be a worthy competitor not just in the Best Foreign Film category, but even a frontrunner in the Best Film and Best Director categories. The film which took the world by storm with a smashing Rs 200 crore debut and a lifetime collection of over Rs 1100 crore, was expected to help the country strike gold at the Oscars.

Fans are tweeting about SS Rajamouli’s RRR, starring Jr NTR and Ram Charan, with the hashtag ‘RRR for Oscars’. While stating that the film should be selected as India’s official entry for the Oscars next year, some are making their case by saying it was not only a pan-India hit, but was also praised in the West, even by Hollywood filmmakers.

PVR, Inox stocks fall, Rs 940 crore eroded after Brahmastra

The opening of the Bollywood movie made on a budget of over ₹400 crores led to PVR and Inox Leisure losing a cumulative valuation of nearly ₹940 crores on Friday Listed multiplex majors like PVR and Inox Leisure took a beating in the stock markets on Friday even as the benchmark indices clocked marginal gains.

The losses of the multiplex majors were primarily on account of reports of a weak opening for Brahmastra, a multi-starer movie made at a cost of over ₹400 crores and one which was expected to break Bollywood’s run of flops. Shares of PVR lost 5.27 percent or ₹101.95 to end the day at ₹1,834.15. During intra-day trades, the shares hit a low of ₹1,825.90. Similarly, Inox Leisure saw its shares tumble nearly five percent or ₹25.70 to close at ₹494.40.

More importantly, the lackluster opening of Brahmastra which boasts of a star cast including Amitabh Bachchan, Ranbir Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Nagarjuna, and a cameo by Shah Rukh Khan cost the investors of the two companies a combined loss of nearly ₹940 crore – the cumulative loss in market capitalization of the two listed multiplex companies.

Market experts believe the huge hit taken by the multiplex majors was also because there were high hopes riding on the big-budget movie and it was expected that it would have put an end to the series of flops of Bollywood movies after high-profile productions including Laal Singh Chaddha and Shamshera. Incidentally, PVR and Inox Leisure reported a combined record ₹883 crore quarterly net box office collections in April-June 2022. That’s a 19 percent jump from the ₹743 crores, the two multiplexes made through net box office collections in April-June 2019.

Brahmastra is known as a weapon of unstoppable destruction, which can only be stopped by its counterattack astra (weapon). Ironically, the movie could end up being a victim of the weapon it is named after.

Brahmastra opened to tepid reviews despite healthy advance bookings worth ₹23 crores. Movie reviewer and analyst Taran Adarsh gave the Ranbir-Alia starrer a two-star rating, saying that the movie is a king-sized disappointment.

Liger Review Non-Stop Cringe, Wasted Opportunity fans writes

The much-anticipated sports action film Liger, starring Telugu star Vijay Deverakonda and Ananya Panday, is now in theatres but it seems to have failed at striking a chord with the audience and critics. Since its release, the film, directed by Puri Jagannadh and also produced by him alongside Charmme Kaur and Karan Johar’s Dharma Production, has been garnering negative reviews with film critics and fans writing it off as a ‘flop’ movie.

The film failed to get favorable feedback from fans, who said it lacked a good story and seemed formula-driven, despite Vijay Deverakonda and Ramya Krishnan’s best effort. Liger also stars Ananya Panday. Liger is backed by Karan Johar, and also stars Ananya Panday, Ramya Krishnan, and Ronit Roy. It was promoted extensively as a pan-India film. Directed by Puri Jagannadh, the Telugu and Tamil versions of Liger were released on August 25. The Hindi version releases in theatres on Friday.

The film managed to have a wide release as it opened to shows as early as 4 am in Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, and Tamil Nadu. Despite banking on great pre-release hype, Liger failed to get favorable reviews from fans

Liger Movie Rating

  • Release date: 25 August 2022 (Pan India)
  • Director: Puri Jagannadh
  • Budget: 125 crores INR
  • Distributed by: AA Films
  • Languages: Telugu, Hindi, Tamil, Kannada, Malayalam
  • Music director: Vikram Montrose, Tanishk Bagchi, Sunil Kashyap

Vijay Deverkonda about Liger

Vijay spoke about Liger during a recent interview, where he said he was not scared about the film’s fate. Vijay added he had his mother’s blessings, people’s love, and God’s support. News agency ANI quoted Vijay as saying, “With Liger we expected a bit of drama…but we’ll fight. We’ve put our heart into making this film. And I believe that I am correct. I feel that there is no room for fear, when I had nothing, I didn’t fear, and now after having achieved something, I don’t think there needs to be any fear even now. Maa ka aashirwaad hai, Logon ka pyaar hai, bhagwaan ka haath hai, andar aag hai, Kaun rokenge dekh lenge (We have mother’s blessings, people’s love, God’s support, a fire inside us, we will see who will stop us)!”

Director Puri Jagannadh, who has given several memorable films in the past, looks totally out of form. Liger took three years to make, but the story doesn’t show that. It is a story that is so stale that even a child could predict the proceedings. You get no justifiable backstory as to why Balamani and Liger chose MMA as a life goal. But, Puri Jagannadh refuses to believe it and stretches it further with literally zero stakes. The story takes us to the US and then introduces boxing legend Mike Tyson as Mark Henderson. While this cameo is intended to bring the much-needed high, it turns out to be unintentionally funny.
