Mass Maharaja Ravi Teja returns to the silver screen with a bang, starring in the slick action thriller ‘Eagle,’ which had fans eagerly awaiting its release since Sankranti. Finally hitting screens worldwide on February 9, the film generated significant buzz and excitement among moviegoers. Directed by cinematographer-turned-director Karthik Ghattamaneni and backed by People Media Factory, ‘Eagle’ managed to rake in approximately Rs 6 Crore on its first day at the Indian box office.
‘Eagle’ follows the story of Sahadeva Varma, the owner of a cotton mill located in the Talakona forest region. Initially perceived as influential, Sahadeva Varma’s mysterious past is uncovered by a journalist, revealing that he is, in fact, an assassin who has been in hiding for over a decade. As Indian National Security agencies and other adversaries close in on him, Sahadeva Varma finds himself in a perilous battle for survival.
Online Piracy Woes
Despite the film’s theatrical release, ‘Eagle’ quickly became a victim of online piracy. Within just three hours of its debut, illegal websites began distributing pirated copies of the movie, depriving filmmakers of their rightful earnings and disappointing eager fans. The widespread availability of pirated content online had a detrimental effect on the film’s success and served as a stark reminder of the challenges posed by digital piracy.
Ravi Teja leads the cast of ‘Eagle,’ supported by a talented ensemble including Anupama Prameswaran, Navdeep, Vinay Rai, Kavya Thapar, Srinivas Avasarala, and Madhoo, all of whom deliver captivating performances in their respective roles.
Behind the Scenes
Directed by Karthik Ghattamaneni, ‘Eagle’ marks his directorial debut, with TG Vishwa Prasad and Vivek Kuchibhotla producing the film under the banner of People Media Factory. The film’s editing is handled by Karthik Ghattamaneni and Uthara, while Davzand provides the captivating background score and music.
As piracy continues to plague the film industry, it is important to note that ‘Eagle’ and its creators strongly oppose piracy in any form. Filmibeat urges audiences to refrain from engaging in or promoting piracy, as it is a criminal offense under the Copyright Act of 1957. Let us support the filmmakers and contribute to the growth of the industry by watching films through legitimate channels and discouraging piracy.
