the titles of Eega run on the silver screen, we hear voice of director
Rajamouli narrating stories to children. When children plead him to
narrate an unusual story, he will pick up Eega story. We see (Samantha)
Bindu in the first scene followed by Nani. They both fell in love with
eachother although Bindu never expresses her love for Nani. Meanwhile,
Bindu (who is a social worker) approaches the business magnate Sudeep to
raise funds for a cause. Sudeep, who happens to be a womanizer, will
get attracted to the beauty of Samantha and follows her. When he gets to
know that Nani was after Samantha, he hatches plot to kill Nani and
accomplishes the same. All this happens within first half-an-hour and
then comes Eega, the hero of the film.
Nani, who gets killed by
Sudeep, will reincarnate as a housefly. The little create fortunately
remembers the remniscences of the past life and chooses to take revenge
on Sudip. The remaining part of the story will unveil a series of scenes
filled with graphics and animations, which will undoubtedly be a feast
to the eyes!
is not just an animation movie. It's a classic love story. The plot
selected by Rajamouli was different, but it has definately made a
difference as people welcomed the alignment of
graphics with a pure love story. The good amount of graphics that went
into the picture is a visual treat. The action sequences of Eega and the
introduction of the character were beautifully sketched by Rajamouli.
The screenplay and dialogues were good and so were the costumes of Sudip
and Samantha designed by Rama Rajamouli. For the first time in
Tollywood, a movie went close to Hollywood film. The introduction scene
of Eega reminds us of the famous flick Avatar.
The best part of
Eega is the expressions of the housefly. To convey a message to its
ex-life lover, Eega makes different buzz. The dubbing (buzz) of Eega is
given by Rajamouli. Background score of the movie is also another asset
and the credit goes to MM Keeravani. The two songs looked good on screen
while the climax dance by Eega received good response.
we talk of performances in Eega movie the first place is occupied by
Sudeep. As a filthy rich businessman, who takes the role of antagonist
to win his love, Sudeep's performance made audiences awestruck while
Samantha was looking gorgeous. Her facial
expressions played a key role in conveying the feelings of an average
girl who lost her love. Nani has a very little role and supposedly gave
his best. And Eega's performance was awesome...err...the credit again
goes to Rajamouli and his animation team. The comedy sequences by
Thaagubothu Ramesh tickled the ribs of the audiences.
In a nutshell:
In Tollywood, its usually heroes or heroines who drag audiences to
theatres and for the first time people are thronging theatres only for
the sake of a director. The credit obviously goes to Rajamouli who
proved that if there's stuff in a director, he can cast a housefly as
the hero and make it a big hit. With Eega, the outlook of Telugu Cinema
changed completely. Hatts off to Rajamouli for spreading the name and
fame of Telugu Cinema across the globe.
Final Word: Eega is Rajamouli's touch of social fantasy.
Stills from Eega:
S S Rajamouli the director to give wings to dreams is all set to test waters with his latest science fiction cinema, Naan Ee in Tamil and Eega in Telugu. In fact Bengaluru will be the only place with equal number of screens having the the same film
in both the languages and with sub titles in Kannada. The director is
acclaimed for his natural pangs in narrating imaginations like real life
incidents. A classic example for the Director's prowess is Magadheera.
However this would be the first time that Rajamouli is embarking on a
Expectations and hypes have escalated peaks by the very good response given by the inner circles of the South Film Industry.
Naan Ee (Eega) got very good positive talk from the Censor board
Officials too, say sources. The mega budget Naan Ee (Eega) boasts of
Hollywood technical excellence for which the crew spent a whopping Rs 7
Cr, say sources. And the whole budget for the film started with a
shoestring forecast of Rs 2 Cr, but has escalated, after the narration
began, to nearly Rs 26 Cr. Today being the D Day, Naan Ee (Eega) is
releasing across the globe on 1200 screens. Critics say Naan Ee (Eega)
will be trend setter when talked about technical brilliance.
The expectations are pitching high because of various reasons, one is that Naan Ee (Eega) star
cast include Samantha and Naani in the lead and the third prominent is
Kannada star Sudeep in the antagonist role. But the twist is that the
hero shares the screen space only for a brief time and returns after his
death as a house fly or as Naan Ee (Eega). The torture that the
animated creature does to take revenge on the villain is the rest of the
story. Rajamouli genearlly plans of a long flash back and the narration
would surely be above par, say sources.
Done! Finished! Now the most irritating part is the waiting period till
6th..:)' tweeted Rajamouli. Probably undergoing the pre-delivery blues.
Awaiting to showcase his creation to win rich accolades from one and
versatile actor in Kannada Sudeep makes his Kollywood and Tollywood
entry with this film and is so confident of its success. "There's no
denying that the film has created a lot of buzz across India,
irrespective of the language the people speak. The fact that Bollywood
makers are talking about this film is proof that the team has achieved
its first step. I'm privileged to be part of such a film," remarks
who is on cloud nine with her back to back super hits in South is sure
to be on a block buster hunt say sources. And about her role in the
Naan Ee (Eega), Samantha hoping that this film would give her career in
Kollywood a grand boost. As it may be noted that the star was launched
in Telugu by a Tamil Director and now in Tamil by a Telugu one. Naan Ee
(Eega) is sure to give her a winning edge.
would the Tollywood star Naani think of being directed by the mega
director Rajamouli. In Naan Ee (Eega). No words can express his
feelings. When questioned about his brief role, the actor was quite
brilliant. He remarked that doing nothing and staying for two and half
hours and doing something extrordinary for ten minutes in a film does
make a lot of difference to the career of an aspiring star. True the
character that stays within one's heart for sometime does bring success
to a versatile artiste and Naan belongs to that genre.
the whole it is an entertainment packed in the life of an house fly.
And Naan Ee (Eega) is ready to take its maiden flight, probably
completed too as the morning show is getting over. Watch out Wishesh
