Eli Movie 2nd Day Box Office Collection

Both the first as well as second half is way too slow paced to one’s liking as even Vadivelu’s 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 could’ve 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. Vidyasagar’s background score is apt for a movie like Eli, his songs though are unbearable. Usage of the Hindi classic ‘Meri Sapno ki’ is inappropriate. Anyhow, The occupancy was in the range of 30 to 40 percent. With morning, afternoon, night shows occupancy the film is expected to earn in the range of Rs 70 lacs* on day two.
