About Eega in brief
Eega is a 2012 Indian fantasy action film written and directed by S. Rajamouli. It was filmed simultaneously in Telugu and Tamil languages with the latter titled Naan Ee. The film’s narrative is in the form of a bedtime story told by a father to his daughter. Its protagonist Nani, who is in love with his neighbour Bindu, is murdered by a wealthy businessman. Nani reincarnates as a housefly and tries to avenge his death and protect Bindu from an obsessive Sudeep. Eega was one of the highest-grossing Telugu films of the year, earning more than ₹1. 25 billion.
