Rating : 3.75 / 5Nani and samantha new telugu fillm Eega movie review:
Director SS Rajamouli is one of those directors who has never tasted a flop in their career. He takes film-making as 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 sit on the edge of their seats biting their nails.
Bindu (Samantha) is an artist specialized in Nano art and also runs an NGO. Bindu has two admirers – a guy her next door (Nani) and an evil-minded businessman Sudeep (Sudeep). Bindu admires Nani but dodges on reciprocating her love towards him. Meanwhile, Sudeep tries to win her by giving money to her NGO. When Sudeep comes to know that Bindu is actually in love with Nani, he kills Nani. Now Nani is reborn as a housefly to avenge his death.
Nani’s screen time is hardly 20 minutes. But his work is essential for the story to elevate when he is reborn as Eega. He is extremely lovable and makes a deep impact with casual looking yet intense performance. His brilliant comedy timing is perfectly used by Rajamouli. When you pit an Eega against a man, it is absolutely necessary to choose the right villain to elevate the heroism of Eega. The frustration of the villain results into the heroism of Eega. Sudeep has taken the movie to next level with his fervent expressions and violent body language. Samantha’s run of success continues as she did extremely well as a bereaved lover.
Technical and Other departments:
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 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.
When Rajamouli attained the peak of his popularity by delivering Magadheera after doing consecutive hits, he didn’t go after stars. He has taken the route a very few commercially super successful directors would dare to. He has made a different comedy with Sunil as hero. He went to the extreme by making a concept film Eega with a budget of 30 crores. Films like Eega differentiates a classic director from the rest. Eega is a classic revenge story told in unimaginable proportions (few millimeters vs six foot). There are a few dull moments and second half should have been little trimmed. But all these small dissatisfaction pale out in front of the magnitude of efforts kept by the filmmakers. On a whole, Eega is a must watch film in theaters.
Rajamouli’s Eega is frivolous, yet brilliant. Made for all age group of audiences, Eega is highly enjoyable commercial movie with much detailing and effort in making. It is definitely going to be a landmark film in Telugu cinema. And Eega is easily the best movie made by Rajamouli. Go…watch for it.
