In a box stuffed with heavy hitters — together with Girl Gaga, Rihanna and perennial nominee Diane Warren — RRR‘s “Naatu Naatu” gained easiest unique music at Sunday’s Academy Awards, turning into the first-ever music from an Indian movie to win the prize.
Songwriters M.M. Keeravani and Chandrabose won the Oscar statuettes, however the luck of “Naatu Naatu” had many authors, from the celebrities who danced to it in RRR (N.T. Rama Rao Jr. and Ram Charan) to the vocalists who carried out it (Rahul Sipligunj and Kaala Bhairava) to the choreographer who helped make its video a viral sensation (Prem Rakshith). In contrast to its fellow nominees for easiest unique music, “Naatu Naatu” used to be central to the movie from which it got here; the music pops up an hour into RRR, soundtracking a fierce dance combat between the movie’s major characters and a gaggle of stuffy British colonizers.
“Naatu Naatu” used to be extensively thought to be the frontrunner on this 12 months’s box of nominees, which integrated Girl Gaga’s “Cling My Hand” (from Best Gun: Maverick), Rihanna’s “Raise Me Up” (from Black Panther: Wakanda Ceaselessly), Sofia Carson’s “Applause” (from Inform It Like a Lady) and Son Lux, David Byrne and Mitski’s “This Is a Lifestyles” (from The whole thing In every single place All At As soon as). “Applause” used to be written through Diane Warren, who overlooked out on a aggressive Oscar win for the 14th time with no victory.
