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

Delight well done Telugu cinema
5 December 2012 | by sachinchauhan22See all my reviews

First I let all you know that I am from a Hindi state (utter pradesh) where Bollywood rules But to be honest Bollywood is too idea less to be called a creative movie industry.Bollywood live on stealing from others from Hollywood , Pakistan , (almost from every part on earth) and now there is a trend to steal from Tamil and Telugu cinema .And the sad part is most of the people even never get to know that who was the original creator.some movies are gazani,roudy rauthor , bodygaurd , ready , and many more .Most of them are super hit in bollywood. And now Telugu cinema comes with this movie Eega (Makki in Hindi ) its like slapping Bollywood on its face. What Bollywood didn't able to do with its high budget , Superstardum , and wide area of viewership Telugu Cinema did it with limited resources ,budget and limited viewers Any telugu guy can tell you what a great risk was take to decide a movie in which the main character is a FLY. No offense But from past few years most of the telugu movies were also very formulatic in approach as a superman Hero , 1 or 2 heroins (for dance and songs) , a mastermind villain , some fight scenes and thats it .

But this movie is a fresh air , well told story , nice comedy scenes , great special effects and CGIs . I recommend this movie for everyone and salute Rajamouli (director) for his great work ,
