RRR Director S.S. Rajamouli Once Made An Action Epic About A Murdered Man Who Is Reincarnated As A Housefly

“Eega” centers on a man named Nani (played by Nani, though not playing himself). He is just your average Joe with a deeply intense crush on the girl who lives across the street named Bindu (Samantha Ruth Prabhu). She works for an organization that helps children and spends her free time creating micro art. Bindu is fully aware of Nani’s fervent attraction to her, which manifests in some light stalking (and because this is a movie, the stalking is meant to be charming and not creepy), and though she wants to deny it, she is fully attracted to him as well, which quickly evolves to love. The problem is Sudeep (played by Sudeep, though not playing himself), an incredibly shady businessman, also has his eye on her and will do anything to have her, which includes murdering Nani.

Naturally, Nani is reincarnated as a fly and retains all the memories of his past human life. He still loves Bindu with all his heart and will stop at nothing to kill Sudeep, which involves a lot of incredible ingenuity on the part of a fly considering the limitations of the species. Through sheer force of will, Nani makes Sudeep lose his mind. Meanwhile, he also manages to figure out how to present himself to Bindu to show that he is still with her.

Basically, “Eega” is like if the Patrick Swayze/Demi Moore movie “Ghost” was a revenge movie and a wacky comedy, and you, of course, replace a human specter with an insect.
