A few months ago, during the audio launch of Eega, Sudeep had started his speech in Kannada in Hyderabad and it was praised by Kannada media. But little less people knew that Kicha would be speaking in his mother tongue in more than few times in the film too. An ardent fan of Kicha named Anirudh, who watched the movie on Friday in Bangalore, said, "We were overwhelmed when we saw the introductory scene of Sudeep in Eega where he says, 'Namuralli gante hodibeku, pakada uralli tamte nu hodibeku' (the meaning of the sentence is that we should work at our home as well as in our neighbour's place). We never expected him to speak in Kannada."
However, Eega directed by SS Rajamouli has got an overwhelming response from all across the globe. In Karntaka the movie was released in 150 screens and it has done good business on the day one. The movie starring Sudeep, Samantha and Nani has been declared as a techno-graphical extravaganza.
