RRR is trending, not just in India but in the US and over 57 countries worldwide all thanks to Netflix. The Indian-Telugu blockbuster featuring Ram Charan & Jr NTR, helmed by S.S. Rajamouli began streaming on the OTT in mid-May and the Hindi version has already earned a spot in the Top 10 most-watched list.
It’s been a great week for Netflix with Stranger Things 4’s massive success though it seems the streaming giant’s recent slate of movies, particularly, foreign films like F*ck Love Too, and Toscana have also worked well for Netflix, pulling in over 14,000,000 watch hours. RRR holds the first spot in the global Top 10 list from last week’s report with an estimate of 18,360,000 hours viewed. It should be noted another Indian flick, the Alia Bhatt starring Gangubai Kathiawadi landed the 7th spot with 4,840,000 hours viewed.
In the United States, RRR has surprisingly landed the 10th spot as the most-watched film, below F*ck Love Too. Netflix India also shared a post celebrating its rising success to the top in over 57 countries. Even Rotten Tomatoes have included the blockbuster among their “100 best movies 3 hours or longer” list. Readers can check it out below.

It’s noteworthy to see the Telugu blockbuster compete with the likes of flicks like Top Gun (4th spot) which has gained momentum due to Top Gun: Maverick’s ongoing theatre run. Though RRR’s theatre window ended prior, it had a steady box office run in the US. The movie stands as the second highest-earning Telugu movie at the global box office, falling behind Baahubali 2, which was also directed by Rajamouli.

RRR’s success in the western sphere drew reactions from audiences in the US and other regions. Even so, some opinions calling the movie a heartwarming queer story have not been received well by filmholics in India.
RRR in Hindi is currently available to stream on Netflix.
