ABOUT THE FILMS

EEGA, 2012, Potentate Films, 145 min, India, Dir: S.S. Rajamouli

You will believe this man is a fly! S.S. Rajamouli’s breakout success remains one of the most unique films of the twenty-first century. Nani (Nani) loves Bindhu (Samantha), when lecherous developer Sudeep (Kiccha Sudeep) also takes a liking to the soft spoken artist, he decides to get rid of the competition only to have his plan backfire when Nani rises from the dead, reincarnated as a common housefly. Nani the fly wreaks havoc on Kiccha’s life and quashes his romantic designs on Bhindu in some of the most spectacular action sequences ever created. Whether flipping cars or blowing up houses, this fly takes no prisoners as he attempts to protect his beloved from her evil suitor. One of the most imaginative films ever made, EEGA is a unique treat showing here uncut for the first time in a decade.

BAAHUBALI: THE BEGINNING, 2015, Potentate Films, 159 min, India, Dir: S.S. Rajamouli

The word “epic” gets thrown around a lot these days, but never has it been more apt than to describe S.S. Rajamouli’s two-part period fantasy, BAAHUBALI: THE BEGINNING / BAAHUBALI 2: THE CONCLUSION. The story of a boy named Shivudu (Prabhas) born into obscurity but destined to rule, the Baahubali saga traverses generations to tell a story of betrayal and redemption so gripping that it had the entire nation of India on pins and needles for two years between chapters. Bolstered by powerful performances from the villain Bhallaladeva (Rana Dagubatti), and a host of powerful women led by warrior Avathika (Tamannah Bhatia), powerful queen Devasena (Anushka Shetty), and fearsome mother Sivagami (Ramya Krishnan); this saga is gripping from the first minute to the last. Featuring some of the most incredible action set pieces ever envisioned, BAAHUBALI stuns at every turn, cementing Rajamouli’s place as one of the greatest filmmakers of our generation. This is a rare opportunity to see the epic in its entirety on the big screen in the original Telugu language.

BAAHUBALI 2: THE CONCLUSION, 2017, Potentate Films, 167 min, India, Dir: S.S. Rajamouli
