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

A graphical wonder
6 July 2012 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Director SS Rajamouli is one of those directors who have never tasted a flop in their career. He takes film-making a challenge and enjoys it as a passion and not for money. He has taken an insect as his hero in Eega and made the film, which is so gripping and makes the audiences to sit on the edge of their seats biting their nails. Sudeep (Sudeep) is a billionaire and women are his weakness. He always wants to tread wrong routes to achieve what he wants. He is ready to kill even his friend to bag what he wants. He sets his eyes on Bindu (Samanta), a miniature sculpture maker. Nani (Nani) is in love with her. Learning her love towards Nani, Sudeep bumps him off. Just before his death, Nani comes to know that Bindu also loves him. So he takes a rebirth as an Eega (housefly). Though it is an insect, it remembers everything in its past life and wants to take revenge on Sudeep. The rest of the story deals with how the housefly takes revenge on Sudeep. Performance: Though he had a very limited screen presence, Nani has proved that he is a talented artiste. Samanta has also proved that she could perform well and also filled the glamor slot. Although Sudeep is a villain, he has the screen presence from beginning to end. He has given an extraordinary performance. He is excellent in action. The housefly, which is a graphical object is the hero in Eega. The sentimental scenes between the heroine and Eega, the revenge scenes with the villain are excellent. Rajamouli is successful in creating the exact expressions of Eega with the help of animators and graphic designers. Technical: Senthil Kumar's cinematography is extra-ordinary and Kotagiri Venkateswara Rao has done a very good job. S Ravinder's art work is also worth praising. MM Keeravani composed two songs for this film, but his entire work is on background score. He has given wonderful re-recording, which elevates every scene. When it comes to direction, SS Rajamouli's work needs no mention. Taking a small point, which he heard in his childhood, he has brought out an excellent film. The storyline and the plot are perfect. The presentation is superb and the narration is extraordinary. In fact, the director himself is the hero in Eega because the housefly is a graphical object. Remarks: As Ram Gopal Varma's predicted, the film will definitely collect Rs 100 crore. The film, which has been made with Hollywood standards, will mesmerize audiences of all age groups and classes. It is must watch film. Watch it to enjoy Rajamouli's graphical wonder. PS: The film would be extraordinary if you can watch it in multiplexes
