I would never have said that a video in which two film directors exchange praise and impressions would make me smile as huge as the one I bring you below. In it, James Cameron and SS Rajamouliresponsible for the 2022 Indian phenomenon ‘RRR’, have a brief but intense conversation that ends with an offer that is very difficult to refuse.
fan vs. fan
The duo of filmmakers, who coincided in the celebration of the Critics Choice Awards, They did not hesitate to shower each other with flowers. Rajamouli declared himself a fan of Cameron’s work: “I’ve seen all your movies, they are a great inspiration. From Terminator to Avatar, Titanic…everything. I love your work”. But the person in charge of ‘The sense of water’, to the surprise of the one from Karnataka, was praise your workstating that he got to stand up during the viewing.
“Watching your characters… It’s quite an experience watching them and your approach; water, leak, story. Reveal after reveal. And then you show what happened in the backstory (…) I loved it!” .

Suzy Amis, Cameron’s wife, also joined the conversation to reveal that her husband saw ‘RRR’ twicethe second with her: “The first time he saw it by himself, and then he was like, ‘Honey, you have to see this!'”. The reaction de Rajamouli and the rest of the team present at this discovery is as endearing as it is understandable:
“Your words are worth more than any award to me. I can’t believe you saw the movie and analyzed it.”
But the really interesting thing about the meeting comes after Cameron extols the use of the soundtrack in ‘RRR’ and is surprised to discover that it was it shot for 320 days and without a second unit. Before saying goodbye, the Canadian approached Rajamouli and released the bomb: “If you ever want to make a movie here, let’s talk”.
Let’s join forces, put candles or whatever is necessary so that this invitation does not fall on deaf ears and we can see in the future —not too distant, if possible— a collaboration between these two industry giants.
