Well after so many days, today I watched 2 movies. After Aiyyaa, I watched a movie named ‘Makkhi’, yes, well don’t get surprised. I will tell you all about this movie, and my experience in this review. Sometime back, in July 2012, a Telugu movie released, its name was ‘Eega’, and I saw its posters everywhere which looked different, then I heard about the movie, and found that it was a totally different concept movie, and I suddenly become interested in a telugu language movie, AMAZING eh!! (Since I don’t like them), and was very eager to check it out, but because of the language barrier, I didn’t watched it. But then I came to know that its Hindi version (dubbed) is also in process, and soon it will release, and so, yesterday while looking for this weekend’s movie options, to book a show, I saw a new option MAKKHI, and instantly I booked the show. But I was skeptical about the movie’s Hindi dubbing, as we all know and daily saw many south-language movies comes on TV, with such a bad dubbing, that many-a-times I laugh and many-a-times, I felt to puke, the songs were horrible. But my desire to watch a classic overcome all other thoughts and so I went for MAKKHI.

It’s a totally different concept, and a Revenge movie supported with a lot of special effects, and why they were necessary, because it is the story of a fly, a house-fly, which is known as Makkhi in Hindi language, or Eega in Telugu. The story – Jani (Naveen Babu, aka Nani) loves his neighbor and a micro-artist Bindu (Samantha Prabhu), and just when Samantha started loving him back, he was killed by the movie’s villain, Sudeep (Kiccha Sudeep), reason – he likes to enjoy his new bait – Bindu, and don’t want anybody spoiling his plans. But Jani reborn as a house-fly, and then take oath to revenge his death by killing Sudeep, and then start a wonderful audio-visual treat.

Well as you all can see, this is a wonderful concept, though to many it may feel awkward, howcome a small house-fly can take a revenge from a man, but if you see the movie, you’ll come to know HOW easy for it to take a revenge, it can go and fly anywhere, and can make the day horrible for anybody if it wants. A wonderful concept and story from the director of the movie SS Rajamouli (who also directed the blockbuster Telugu movie Magadheera, and Vikrmarkudu, the Telugu original version of Rowdy Rathore), and such a concept requires brilliance, brilliance in every field, and it team did exactly the same, they created wonderful special-effects, helped by the brilliant camera angles (KK Senthil Kumar), to show how a fly works and can tackle different situations. Equally brilliant were the animations and the design of the HERO of the movie – the FLY! I read it that they did captured many flies to design one as an animation, but they found them a bit ugly, so they makeover the fly in the movie because he was the lead character of the movie.

Eega, the original movie was earlier planned as an experimental film, but later on it was decided to make as a full-fledged film. Some action scenes and many others are shot in slow motion artistically. It is very difficult to show the same premises of environment through the fly’s view, but it was done wonderfully, kudos to the technical team. Animation showed you the expression and feeling of a fly, that’s something out of this world. I must say that this movie was certainly of the level of the Hollywood cinema on the term of Special effects. These whole effects were supervised by Rahul Venugopal, Adel Adili, and Pete Draper of Makuta effects. Nani looked lovable in his small role, but Samanta looked cute, Sudeep was the best performer of the movie, and he looked the equally irritating (the role demands) and powerful villain in the movie. I was very doubtful over the dubbing effects but dubbing was also perfect, I didn’t felt like I was watching another language movie. Scenes were effective helped by the nice full-of-beats music and background score. 1st half was good, which was perfectly paused at interval juncture, and it comes right after a brilliantly done stunt sequence which shows an accident. 2nd half was again a treat for the eyes, with a perfectly thought climax, superb! The songs were too dubbed in Hindi and they were also nicely done, lyrics felt right in place, no feeling of dubbing came from them (In dubbing, they just simply write anything, with no sense of rhythm) but here everything was perfect, wonderful music was also there. The beautiful romantic song ‘Aaye, are are are..” sets the tone of love, while “Lava Lava”, and the title track “Makkhi Hoon main makkhi, sair kar narak ki” was the perfect high-beat revenge suited songs. Music was given by MM Keeravani. In the end, the dance sequence of the fly, where it is shown copying famous Bollywood dance steps was designed nicely. The thinking of various ways a fly can take to take revenge was good, what else can I say. Everything was fine, except some negatives – still some final polishing is required to special effects, some smoothness is required to get to the exact level of Hollywood, which was missed only a bit in 1-2 scenes. The episode of tantric looks somewhat less convincing though but all-in-all was shot well.

This week’s movie is not Aiyyaa, but Makkhi, and if you’ve missed Eega due to language barrier, do watch Makkhi for sure, it will give you a wonderful time pass and a nice visual treat. My take 4.5/5 for this Makkhi! Take a bow! Rajamouli!! This Makkhi gave us a moral, NEVER UNDERESTIMATE A SMALL BEING or THING, OR ELSE..


Jai Raam ji ki :)
