Filmmaker James Cameron hailed RRR director SS Rajamouli and also expressed his love for RRR. The Avatar filmmaker told that he had watched the film twice and also told Rajamouli that if he ever wants to make a movie in Hollywood he must patch him in as well.
In a rare clip tweeted by the RRR handle, featured both the ace directors in a discussion, where Rajamouli says: “I saw all your movies… Big inspiration. From Terminator, Avatar, Titanic…Everything. Loved your work.”
Replying to it the Avatar director said: “Thank you. That’s right. Now watching your characters…It’s just like such a feeling to watch them. And the setup… Your fire, water story. Reveal after reveal. And then you show what happened in the back story. It’s like all of them are a homely setup. Why he’s doing what he’s doing and the twists and turns and the friendship and eventually it gets to a point that where he can’t even kill him when the other reverses…It’s just so, so powerful.” The post read: “If you ever wanna make a movie over here, let’s talk.”
Rajamouli responded, “These words from you are more than an award for me.” James Cameron also praised music composer MM Keeravani, who bagged a Golden Globe and a Critics Choice Award. He averred, “And you composed, right? Because I saw you at the Golden Globes. The score, it’s kind of amazing. Because I like the music to kinda stay out of the way and kinda come on in and support when the audience is already feeling something so it builds the theme. But you are using the music very differently.”
He wraps up speaking to Rajamouli, “You can only imagine, what it must be like. Everything that goes behind the movie-making process. Because of all the work and passion you’ve put in… all that must be yours. All of them must be surprised, your audience back at your home. And I’m sure this must be a bonus one for you. What you must be enjoying today, the world encounters it… If you ever wanna make a movie over here, let’s talk.”
SS Rajamouli’s RRR was awarded with two Critics’ Choice Awards including Best Foreign Language Film and Best Song. It bagged nomination in a succesive row for five categories including best picture, best director, best foreign language film, best song for Naatu Naatu and best visual effects.
