International film critic Clayton Davis, calls RRR "a monument to action cinema"
"India has not been nominated for Oscars for 21 years," but will RRR break the jinx if it's selected to be India’s submission for 'Best International Feature'? We never know! SS Rajamouli's RRR became an instant blockbuster when it was released in March this year, but no one expected the film to become a 'Global Phenomena'.
After an American magazine predicted RRR's worthiness to contend at the Oscars, now an International film critic Clayton Davis, who often makes predictions about Oscars and Emmys, has weighed the chances of RRR receiving a oscar nomination. He called the movie “a monument to action cinema” and added that RRR reminded him of George Miller’s 2015 movie 'Mad Max: Fury Road'.“The film RRR which is a three-hour action epic is the biggest film in India’s history. There is generally a lot of buzz at the moment because India is in the process of choosing a film to be selected to represent them at the Academy Award ceremony. RRR has lit up social media with its star Jr NTR, thirst traps, and visual effects,” Clayton said.
He further added, "The only hump to get over right now is that it’s in Telugu and all the Indian submissions typically are in Hindi. Hopefully, they choose right and even if its not, India's submission should be on voters minds here in America for other categories."
Now popular actors and directors are reacting to this video. Critically acclaimed filmmaker, Shekhar Kapur tweeted "Seems the film #RRR has taken not just India, but the whole world by storm. Congratulations my friend @ssrajamouli .. hope other film makers from India follow in your footsteps. After all #India is the land of #Storytelling."

Actor Vijay Deverakonda, at a promotional interview for 'Liger', also shared his excitement about the possibility of Jr NTR joining the Oscar race. He said, “I want him to win. Let’s go. I think if #Tarak anna wins, it will be mental. If someone from our country wins, it will be a different kind of high. I really hope we can win. Both Ram Charan anna and Tarak anna gave killer performances in the movie so if this happens it will be magical.”
