Nani is reincarnated as a fly and once he shows up the fun and creative genius of Rajamouli really kicks in. So many details showing both the minutia of Eega's world while at the same time creating a land of giants for him to manuever through, creates the perfect balance of wimsy and tension. The opening shots of Eega flying through the park with the kids and the soap bubbles and the velcro surface of the tennis ball, combined realistic live action with the animated, Eega-eye view, just wowed me right from the beginning. Rajamouli kept this clever blend of live action and animation, that really pulls you into Eega's world, going throughout the film.
After the interval it becomes obvious how tightly put together the script is. Fortunetly for Eega, Bindhu creates micro-jewlry and knows sign language, making it easier for him to both communicate with her and enlist her help in exacting revenge. Once he reveals himself to her, he gets her to create various tools and weapons for him to use. He transforms into a kind of Super Fly with micro gas mask, barbells made from a lightbulb filament, and little metal claws to scratch through hard surfaces (and skin!)
M.M. Keeravani's soundtrack and background scores really enhance the comedy, tension and emotion of the scenes with Eega. There are so many special touches and amazing visuals in Eega. It really is worth going to see on the big screen, even without subtitles. There are some surprises for South Indian film fans including a short Rajnikanth clip and be sure to stay for the end credits to see Eega channeling Ravi Teja, Ram Charan and Tarak!
I can't wait to see it again and I am looking forward to the DVD..this movie is begging to be screencapped!
