The Whale is a psychological drama film directed by Darren Aronofsky. The plot follows a reclusive English teacher with morbid obesity who tries to restore his relationship with his teenage daughter.
‘Naatu Naatu’ has already won a Golden Globe and a Critics Choice Award this year. At the Oscars, the song competed against tracks sung by Lady Gaga and Rihanna.
RRR stars NTR Jr., Ram Charan, Ajay Devgn, Alia Bhatt and Shriya Saran and tells the fictional story of two real-life Indian revolutionaries, Alluri Sitarama Raju and Komaram Bheem and their fight against the British Raj.
Set in the 1920s, the plot explores the undocumented period in their lives when both the revolutionaries chose to go into obscurity before they began the fight for their country.
