Rajamouli’s ‘Eega’ has kick-started a new trend which is very well taking Tollywood by storm. The film was released today (July 6th, 2012) across the world in Telugu and Tamil. When asked why he embarked on this project, Rajamouli told that after ‘Maryada Ramanna’ he was preparing himself to do a big film with Prabhas. However, there was a gap of 4-5 months to start that film as Prabhas could not adjust his dates. Meanwhile he started off this experimental film ‘Eega’ as a small budget movie which turned out to be a magnum opus today. Thanks to Rajamouli and team for making efforts to create this spectacular film. ‘Eega’ is receiving the universal praise from both critics and audiences. Here are few tweets from celebrities who watched ‘Eega’.
Deva Katta: “Eega"is a masterpiece and a landmark in Indian cinema...no more or no less.”
Ram Gopal Varma: Jst saw Eega nd I think Rajamouli should tweet his feet for everyone to touch them! The only tragedy about Sudeep is that most audience won't realize that he just imagined the fly nd performed nd the cg wud come later. I don't remember hearing in a decade such innovative nd such creative background score as in 'Eega’. In Eega, Rajamoui brought out the child in evry1 whthr he's 8 yrs old or 80 yrs old..congrats 2 him fr pioneering a new era in cinema!”
Kona Venkat: “EEGA irritated sudeep and entertained audience till d end. An outstanding film from SSR. Samantha is too good and sudeep is exceptional. In EEGA Nani did a fabulous job in his short lived character. The best part is u remember his character even after he dies. Arresting.”

Akhil Akkineni: “EEGA EEGA EEGA!!! All I can say is don't miss out on a chance to see this movie. Take a bow Rajamouli you are just a magician. And nani's character lives through out the movie so well even though we see the fly. Superb.”
