J Hurtado, Contributing Writer
SS Rajamouli's Eega recently stormed Fantastic Fest 2013, becoming one of the festival's surprise hits. If you couldn't make it to Austin for this week-long orgiastic celebration of all things film, don't worry, you still have a chance to check it out in the comfort of your own home.

Arka MediaWorks in India recently introduced a new streaming service for Telugu film called ReleaseDay. One of their inaugural offerings is the international festival version of Eega, available for a very small PPV charge. The film is offered in the same version screened at Fantastic Fest for only $1.99, that's a pretty damned good deal for a cinematic experience that may just change your life.

ReleaseDay is ramping up its releases to include more contemporary and classic Telugu features, though at the moment most are without English subtitles. However, Eega is presented with subs and it is the first legal streaming site to offer this rarely seen version.

SS Rajamouli is staged to become one of the major names in international cinema, and his next film, Bahubali, looks like it's going to be a killer experience as well. Don't get left behind!  You can say you knew who he was way back when, check out Eega on ReleaseDay.com!

    How does the international festival version differ from the original version?

  • I believe the time difference is somewhere in the 20 minute range. They're pretty significantly different versions.

  • J Hurtado

    There's actually a 40 minute difference. Some cuts to extremely culturally specific gags, but at least one really amazing witchcraft sequence is completely excised.
