Mumbai, March 22 - SS Rajamouli's mega-blockbuster and Oscar-winning film RRR
is having the success of a lifetime. While this period action drama movie is on the historic run at the Japanese box office it is simultaneously trending on Netflix even after many months of release.
The Jr. NTR and Ram Charan-fronted flick won the Best Original Song Oscar for Naatu Naatu last week. The big win increased the buzz of the movie for another round and the result is clearly visible with its return to the top 10 list of the most-watched non-English films on Netflix last week.
The "RRR" Hindi version scored 2.67 million viewing hours during the week of March 13 - March 19 and was the 7th most watched non-English movie during the week. Netflix didn't reveal the total viewing hours but one can assume it to be around 100 million so far.
Produced by DVV Entertainment, "RRR" has now been in the top 10 for 18 weeks on Netflix which is the highest ever for an Indian title. It is currently trending in the top 10 in 6 countries, including India, Bangladesh, Maldives, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, and Mauritius.
Meanwhile, Arjun Kapoor and Tabu's "Kuttey" was streamed for 3.55 million viewing hours during its opening weekend on Netflix and was the 5th most watched non-English film during the week. Tamil star Dhanush's box office blockbuster "Vaathi" (Tamil) and "Sir" (Telugu) secured the 9th and 10th spots with 2.43 million and 2.27 million viewing hours in the opening weekend, respectively.
