Eli Movie Critic Reviews

Eli a Comic Rhythm - Times of India


One of the most infuriating aspects of Eli is that things happen without any rhyme or reason. We wonder why the film had to be set in the 1960s. Maybe, the period look is supposed to automatically give the film a funny tone. But then, the look isnt followed throughout; we see modern-day buildings, grounds and things in the background every time the action takes place outdoors. Ironically, it is the writing that feels dated. The villain smuggles cigarettes. Why cigarettes and not the usual not diamonds or drugs? Just to give the film a message. We get a duet where Vadivelu lip-syncs to Aaradhanas Mere Sapnon Ki Rani and romances Sadaa (who is technically the heroine but appears only in the second half). Why a Hindi song? Probably the filmmakers thought Vadivelu singing a Hindi song would be funny it isnt

Eli Technicalities


Both the first as well as second half is way too slow paced to ones liking as even Vadivelus charm fails to keep Eli alive throughout. Paul Livingstone, the cinematographer, has managed to capture the essence of 60s giving the film a retro look. His choice of colours though are poor as it fails to connect with the soul of his camerawork. At 2 hours and 40 minutes, Eli couldve done with many more cuts. It comes as a surprise when an editor like VT Vijayan along with TS Jay fails to deliver which is a rarity. Vidyasagars background score is apt for a movie like Eli, his songs though are unbearable. Usage of the Hindi classic Meri Sapno ki is inappropriate.

Eli Will Entertain You - India Glitz


Eli happens to break into the house of a retired IG and seeing his photograph on the wall tells his cronies that he had aspired to become a policeman, but the IG in the photo rejected him because his chest was an inch short. Eli is almost caught by police officer Shankar (Adithya) who visits the house, but Eli manages to escape with many valuables. The retired IG suggests to Shankar that the person who cleaned up his house is the right man to infiltrate the smugglers and help the police nab them. The rest of the story(!!!) deals with how Eli infiltrates the gang and finally gets to become a police officer.

Vadivelu is in full form as Eli and there are four to five scenes in the movie when he brings the house down with his dialogue delivery alone, but alas this powerhouse talent has been let down by poor writing and execution.

Comedy Spy Eli - Behindwoods


Vaigai Puyal trying to figure out a way to fit into the shoes of Thennagathu James Bond Jai Shankar. Eli is not a dumb movie with a couple of passable slapstick comedies but at the same time it doesnt offer anything different from the usual. The film takes place in the 60s; the time when Jai Shankars detective thrillers were ruling the roost in Tamil cinemas. This film too carries some old Tamil film references like the costumes, sets or even the characterizations, which the makers might have planted it on purpose. But one wonders how a Contessa car features in a film that takes place in the 60s, a car series which the Hindustan Motors introduced by the late 1970s.

Vadivelus spy comedy movie

Sure Vadivelu can play the role of a Hero. But will a successful Vadivelu make us laugh,The bank heist scene is excellent. Why? Because Vadivelu attempts the bank robbery in the most childish of ways and fails pathetically! We love when Vadivelu attempts and fails. That too fails for the simplest of reasons. Thats what makes us laugh doesnt it .;But for most part of the movie, Vadivelu attempts to be the Hero, and a successful one at that well, you can guess the result. The fight scenes, especially in the climax, is totally unbelievable.The comedy, which ought to have taken the center stage in this movie, is woven throughout, but almost as an afterthought.
