S S Rajamouli is pushing the boundaries of the usage of VFX in Telugu films to an all time high. His upcoming magnum opus Eega reportedly has an unprecedented 2234 CG shots. His previous film, Magadheera had only 890 VFX shots. Compared to Magadheera, his latest film Eega is proving to be far more technical challenge. Recently, Rajamouli spoke in length about why the post production of Eega is taking so much time in an elaborate three part series titled Eega’s Progress Report. Right from sound effects to the humoungous number of CG shots, every minute detail is being taken care of. Moreover, the film is releasing in Telugu, Tamil, Malayalam and Hindi which means that there’s plenty of work on the plate for Rajamouli’s team. “Makuta is doing most part of the VFX for Eega. We are confident that the entire CG part will be completed by June 20. Most part of the CG work has already been completed and there are still 269 CG shots which need to be corrected,” Rajamouli said. Although Eega might not have the visual splendor as seen in the flashback episodes of Magadheera, the fact that each and every movement and sound of the ‘housefly’ in every shot had to be created from scratch, is the reason why Eega has turned out to be a far more challenging film. With everything falling into place as scheduled, Rajamouli is planning to release the film on July 6. Sai Korrapati has produced the film and Suresh Babu is presenting the film in AP. M M Keeravani has composed the music and the background score. Nani, Samantha and Sudeep have played the lead roles.
