Leo OTT Release Date 

Leo is all set to premiere on 24 November 2023 on Netflix

It wouldn’t be much of a spoiler to say that Leo is set in Lokesh Kanagaraj’s creative world, the LCU, if you were thrilled about the picture. One positive aspect of this 100% Lokesh Kanagaraj film is that Lokesh gets to defy the formula of a fan service superstar movie. The major reason I enjoyed seeing Leo was that it was mostly an action movie that seldom attempted to be wholesome. The only thing that can detract slightly from the film’s quality is that it is set in the LCU, but the other two movies in this universe exhibited a more pronounced signature of beautiful craftsmanship.

On Monday, November 20, the international over-the-top platform Netflix revealed on social media that the movie will debut digitally in India on November 24 and worldwide on November 28.

The expected global gross income for the film is ₹140 crore. Regarding its earnings in India, preliminary calculations indicate that the movie has taken in ₹63 crore net and ₹74 crore gross there. According to the data, Vijay’s film earned ₹30 crore in Tamil Nadu, ₹11 crore in Kerala, and ₹14 crore in Karnataka in terms of language distribution.

When and Where to Watch Leo

One of the year’s most expected and eagerly awaited movies was Leo. The action movie, which was directed by Lokesh Kanagaraj, debuted in theaters on October 19 and has since grossed over Rs 600 crore at the global box office. As of right now, the film is the highest-grossing Tamil film of all time.

On Monday, November 20, the international over-the-top platform Netflix revealed on social media that the movie will debut digitally in India on November 24 and worldwide on November 28.

What’s the story of Leo

In Theog, Himachal Pradesh, Parthiban (Thalapathy Vijay) owns and operates a café. He resides with his wife Satya (Trisha) and their two kids as a typical family man. A couple thugs break into Parthiban’s cafe one day, threatening to kill both his daughter and a cafe employee. Parthiban kills the thugs because he has no other choice, which puts his family in danger. Gangsters Antony Das (Sanjay Dutt) and Harold Das (Arjun) enter Parthiban’s life during all of this drama, and they mistakenly think Parthiban is their relative, Leo Das (Thalapathy Vijay). Who is this Leo Das exactly? What became of him? How could Parthiban escape the chaos that surrounded them? The remainder of the movie revolves around this.

Cast & Crew of The Leo

The film “Leo,” which is a part of the Lokesh Cinematic Universe, stars a number of well-known actors and actresses, including Vijay, Trisha, Arjun, Sanjay Dutt, Gautham Vasudev Menon, Priya Anand, Mysskin, Mansoor Ali Khan, Sandy, Madonna Sebastian, and Anurag Kashyap. Anirudh Ravichander composed the film’s soundtrack.

Because Vijay’s vulnerability is so effectively shown, the action scenes in the first hour are extremely satisfying. In addition to being a celebrity, Vijay is a skilled actor. Leo expertly displays Thalapathy Vijay’s acting prowess. The first half’s fight scenes are expertly choreographed, and Vijay’s performance and skillfully written action sequences keep the action moving.

The halftime block does a good job of setting the stage for the second half. Leo features some really strong action scenes with well-chosen cinematography. Trisha does well in her position. The pre-climax and climax scenes in the film have a faster pacing. Yes, the movie is a part of the LCU, and fans of the franchise will enjoy a few bits of this. Finally, there’s a little surprise.

Parts of Anirudh’s background score are strong. Comparing it to his greatest works, such as Master and Vikram, it is not as good. Due to poor translation, the songs also failed to make an impression. Manoj Paramahamsa’s cinematography is outstanding. The action block in the flashback sequence included excellent camera movement. While the first hour’s editing is excellent, the second half’s quality is subpar. The hyena scene had good visual effects. The VFX in the automobile chase scene is mediocre because the entire scene has a cartoonish appearance.

Regarding the director, Lokesh Kanagaraj, he performed a passably good job working with Leo. Lokesh played a clean first half, but he was unable to maintain the same pace in the second. Undoubtedly, we have seen this narrative a number of times, but the telling of the story is what counts most. With his flicks, Lokesh has raised the standard, but he was unable to fully meet it with Leo, and the result is only passably good.
