Mass Maharaja Ravi Teja has now come up with the action thriller Eagle. This is the most hyped project of Ravi Teja in recent times. Popular cinematographer Karthik Ghattamaneni wielded the megaphone. Let’s see whether the film lived up to the expectations or not.

Story:

Sahadev Varma (Ravi Teja), hailing from Talakona, produces rare wild cotton. Nalini (Anupama Parameswaran), a journalist, learns that the rare cotton cultivated by Sahadev has solid demand in Europe. Nalini writes an article about him, which lands her in trouble. She gets to know that Sahadev is the most wanted person for RAW, naxals, and terrorists. Who is this Sahadev? Why are these groups after him? What is he doing in Talakona? The film has the answers.

Plus Points:

With Eagle, Ravi Teja came out of his comfort zone and attempted something different. The actor played his age, and he is superb as Sahadev. His get-up, body language, and screen presence are tremendous. We don’t see the usual Ravi Teja, but yet he amazes with his subtle acting. He is superb in all the action sequences.

In the promotional interviews, the director kept saying that Eagle deals with a global issue. The international issue showcased in the film is very much relevant. It is something that we are witnessing very often lately. It is neatly linked with the love story. Ajay Ghosh’s comedy is decent.

Despite less time, Kavya Thapar’s character has got more weight, and the actress is apt in her role. The love track is unique and sensible. Eagle has got amazing action sequences, and they will be a feast for all the action lovers. The action set pieces are well-conceived and shot brilliantly. Credit to the action choreographers for their creativity. The production values and camera movements during the combat scenes are incredible. Vinay Rai, Anupama, Navdeep, Srinivas Avasarala, and others are decent.

Minus Points:

Eagle’s first half could have been much better. The movie starts on an interesting note, and later, it is all about elevations. The director tried to present the mystery behind the protagonist’s character through elevations, but after a point in time it becomes repetitive and a bit boring.

The pacing is slow for most of the first half, and we must wait until the interval bang for the main story. Regarding the dialogue part, the team tried something different, but it was irritating, and was also unnecessarily complicated. This aspect might work against the film to an extent.

The director has drawn inspiration from many films, and it is clearly visible in many scenes. It could have been better had the story come to an end, but a sequel is announced over the end, and this will bog down the impact.

Technical Aspects:

Technically, Eagle is one of the best films to have come out from Telugu cinema. Often, we hear complaints about the technical standards in Telugu cinema, but Eagle is a solid flick from the technical point of view. Especially the cinematography and action sequences are scintillating.

The makers deserve appreciation for presenting the movie in such a stylish manner without compromising on the budget. The background score is decent, while the songs are passable. The editing team could have trimmed down the film a bit.

Coming to director Karthik Ghattamaneni, he did a decent job with Eagle. While the first half was not up to the mark, he makes it up with a good second half, which has both style and substance. Karthik showcased Ravi Teja in a unique avatar, but he should have focused more on the first half and the dialogues part.

Verdict:

On the whole, Eagle deals with a global issue, and the second half is engrossing for the most part. Ravi Teja’s new avatar, his subtle acting, and amazing action sequences are the merits of the film. Director’s idea to present a new-age action film is commendable, but the movie goes overboard at times with irritating dialogues and build-up scenes. Also, the first half needed much better execution. If you are fine with these drawbacks, you can give it a try.
