SS Rajamouli directed RRR movie was one of the highest grossing films from India in 2022 and the Telugu movie's Hindi dubbed version gained more popularity after it released on the Netflix OTT platform. So much so that RRR which started streaming on Netflix on May 22, 2022, had become the platform's most watched non-English movie by June, 2022.
So many American, Hollywood names had caught a sniff of RRR movie's growing popularity and had even tweeted about catching the movie on Netflix. However a social media post amidst this new found love for RRR has created a ruckus; Netflix (The American handle) posted a scene from the movie implying that the laws of physics are to be forgotten while watching it.
The scene in question is where Ram (Ram Charan) and Bheem (Jr. NTR) meet for the first time and work together to save a little boy who’s trapped near a collapsing bridge, after a train catches fire and explodes. Their super-strength, dexterity while saving the boy is what has become the bone of contention here.

Did you ever watch Hollywood Superhero movies? Do they stick to physics? Just wondering.— SSMB Fan (@OkkadiFanIkada) June 17, 2022
Atleast there is a possibility for this stunt,water soaked cloth doesn't catch fire easily, and Bheem is much weigher than Ram so it worked as hand weighing machine, where more weighing object goes down than less, in that way Bheem went lower the surface and caught the child— Pursuit of Objective (@PursuitInvador) June 17, 2022
Indians ruining our own reputation by comparing historical figures to superheroes and asking them if Physics matter in those movies. They are called sci fi superhero movies for a reason. Please stop overrating a masala movie and spoiling the name of all indians.— BKY | ⱽᵃᵃᵈᶦᵛᵃˢᵃˡ (@BPottru) June 17, 2022
Even it breaks physics laws— safroon samsh lite (@naren9908) June 17, 2022

Do you think making fun of a movie which garnered you so much revenue/subscribers is okay..??— Lokesh Reddy (@lokeshreddy09) June 17, 2022
I don’t think he made fun of the movie, it sounded like Physics? Nah fuck that— Nikl ✈️ (@nikl_RA) June 17, 2022
Both RRR and Baahubali are from the same director S.S Rajamouli— GauRaksha Bill (@GauRakshaBill) June 17, 2022
