SS director Rajamouli released a video clip for the song “Janani” from his upcoming great opus RRR on Friday in celebration of Indian Constitution Day. Janani is an ode to the countless sacrifices made for freedom from the tyranny of British rule.
In addition to the soulful melody, MM Keeravaani also sang “Janani”. The accompanying visuals inspire emotion and patriotism. The footage shows the atrocities committed by the British against the Indians, including indiscriminate fire on unarmed people and the murder of even children.

Rajamuli promises many high-octane moments, from the suffering of incarnation to facing torture, the loss of loved ones and his own life in the struggle for freedom.
