15th March, Mumbai: ndia, it’s time to go “Naatu Naatu”! By becoming the first Indian feature film to win an Oscar, SS Rajamouli’s RRR made history. The music to the movie, “Naatu Naatu,” by MM Keeravani, won the Best Original Song Award at the 95th Academy Awards, which are now taking place in Los Angeles, California.
‘Applause’ from Tell It Like a Woman, ‘Hold My Hand’ from Top Gun: Maverick, ‘Lift Me Up’ from Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, and ‘This is Life’ from Everything Everywhere All At Once were the songs it competed against.
The honour was accepted by lyricist Chandrabose and composer Keeravani. Keeravani gave his winning statement in the manner of a Carpenters song that had been modified.
“I listened to The Carpenters while growing up, and here I am at the Oscars. I just had one wish, and Rajamouli and our families also had one. ‘RRR’ must triumph… and it is a moment of pride for every Indian. The composer goes on to say that he feels like he is on the top of the world, which he said in the same tune as the 1970s song The Carpenters.
Naatu Naatu becomes the first song from an Indian film to win an Oscar as a result of the victory. Rahul Sipligunj and Kaala Bhairava, who sing the song “Naatu Naatu,” delivered an outstanding performance at the Oscar ceremony earlier today, and the audience couldn’t get enough of the song. They got a standing ovation for the act. Importantly, earlier this month, “Naatu Naatu” received the Golden Globe for best song. RRR became the first Indian film to win a Golden Globe as a result of the victory. The song’s words were written by Chandrabose, with music by MM Keeravaani, and it was performed by Kala Bhairava and Rahul Sipligunj.
RRR tells a fictional story that takes place in the 1920s while drawing influence from the lives of independence heroes Komaram Bheem and Alluri Sitarama Raju. The movie has a large ensemble cast, including Ray Stevenson, Jr. NTR, Ram Charan, Ajay Devgn, Olivia Morris, Samuthirakani, and Alia Bhatt.
It should be mentioned that the 2008 British film Slumdog Millionaire’s song “Jai Ho,” written by Gulzar and composed by AR Rahman, was the very first Hindi song to win an Oscar Award for Best Original Song and Best Original Score.
