Storyline

Sudeep is a high profile industrialist who gets whatever he wants and he has a special eye for beautiful women. To get them, he will not hesitate to do anything. That desire gets triggered when Sudeep sees Bindu, a micro artist who runs a non-profit organization. However, Bindu is loved by Nani who keeps following her everywhere. Though Bindu loves him, she doesn't express it to him and enjoys the attention. The story takes a turn when Sudeep discovers the feelings of Bindu for Nani and is unable to digest his defeat. He kills Nani. But Nani is born again as 'Eega'(fly) and he wants to take vengeance on Sudeep. Written by VishNu Teja

Trivia

Since the head of a housefly is made up almost entirely of eye and very little muscle, conveying emotion as the fly was extremely difficult. To overcome this, S.S. Rajamouli used body language - they made Nani cover his head completely in cloth and asked him to perform various emotions just through body language. This data was given to the animation team who then created all the movements and body language for the fly. See more »

Eega is excellently exceptional, thoroughly entertaining and fully exciting!
7 July 2012 | by See all my reviews

Eega is tagged as ultimate revenge story and you should watch the film to know why it is! This is really an ultimate entertainer where there is no big commercial hero to shoulder it. However, audience would connect with the Eega and its revenge right away. How many times have you seen crowds cheering a housefly's entry? Eega is not less than any commercial hero, at least in this film.

Rajamouli's has done very good research on the houseflies. He captured every tiny movements and incorporated in the film. He used the tininess of the protagonist to good effect and there are tons of scenes that would leave you awestruck. Watch out for the scene where Eega causes a traffic jam and the scene where it gets back into the running car through ac window.

Only a great director could imagine such scenes and bring them on to the screen with such finesse. Rajamouli ranks among the best directors that India has ever produced. Eega proves that he is the commercial guru of cinema. He made a film which is totally different and yet commercially viable.

All the sections of audience could enjoy this film as Rajamouli dealt it in typical Telugu commercial filmy style. There are elements that caters to every section. Except for the fact that the logic has gone for a toss, Eega is pretty good on every level. May be the screenplay could have been fine tuned as there are some hiccups in between.

Nevertheless, Eega entertains and engages throughout. There are scenes where you would watch the action with closed fists. Should we give better example to say that this film succeeds? Eega is an experience that should never be missed. And you know where to head right after you are done reading this review, right?
