Ravi Teja returns with his latest action outing, “Eagle,” directed by Karthik Gattamaneni. Anupama Parameswaran and Kavya Thappar played female lead in the film and film is bank rolled by Peoples media factory. Read the full review of Eagle:
Eagle introduces us to Sahadev Varma (Ravi Teja), a mysterious man cultivating rare cotton in the depths of the Talakona forest. The veil lifts when journalist Nalini (Anupama Parameswaran) uncovers his hidden past as a skilled assassin, also involving naxals, and terrorists. Who is Sahadev truly, and why does everyone want him? That’s the crux of the story.
Ravi Teja shines despite the complexities of his character. His makeover adds a cool factor to the film. Anupama Parameswaran holds her ground, but Kavya Thappar’s impact is limited due to her underdeveloped role. Supporting actors like Navdeep and Srinivas Avasarala deliver well.
The film starts strong with Anupama’s introduction, but loses steam quickly. The first half’s slow pacing and Ravi Teja’s limited screen time might test your patience. However, the intriguing interval sequence offers a glimmer of hope. Thankfully, the second half soars higher, packed with well-shot action sequences. Karthik’s cinematography deserves praise, capturing the film’s visuals beautifully.
Director Karthik’s chapter-based approach is initially promising, drawing you in with its episodic style. But as the film progresses, the momentum fades, leaving the story feeling fragmented and lacking overall flow.
The film has top-notch production values, and the cinematography is commendable. Davzand’s music deserves a special mention, with the background score effectively enhancing key scenes.

- 1st Half
- Illogical Scenes
- Story pacing
Overall, “Eagle” is a decent action thriller offering action, drama, love, and emotions. While it shines in parts, the slow and underwhelming first half and illogical scenes bring it down. If you’re a Ravi Teja fan and can overlook these drawbacks, it’s watchable. But for a truly fulfilling cinematic experience, Eagle might not reach the peak you expect.
