The actor-politician took to social media a short while ago to share his views of Leo after watching the film and all Vijay fans would be pleased to know that his verdict is extremely positive.
Leo might not be the only film releasing at the South Indian box office on October 19 but there's no doubt that it's got its share of dedicated patrons already. Of course, with two powerhouses in the form of Lokesh Kanagaraj and Thalapathy Vijay coming together for the second time with something so ambitious, visceral, and entertaining at the same time, it's a hard offer to pass up for film aficionados all over. Leo, of course, will start in Tamil Nadu as the favourite of the lot which also includes two Telugu releases and a Kannada release but one gathers that the film has gained a lot of attention in other regions like Karnataka as well.
In Bengaluru alone, Leo is said to have over 1000 shows to its name on the opening day which goes to show just how big Vijay's fandom is. While his stardom lends that extra momentum to the film, one cannot also forget what Lokesh Kanagaraj brings to the table as the writer-director. The young filmmaker has been the talk of the town for quite some time now and with his previous release Vikram setting new benchmarks, the expectations are expectedly huge with Leo.
Those keenly keeping a check on the hype surrounding Leo know that the early reviews have begun to emerge well in advance of the release, with a few of them suggesting that the film's action is not for the faint-hearted. There's evidently a lot of violence in the film and Lokesh Kanagaraj hasn't tried keeping that fact under wraps either but still wishes to see the final output to see just have audacious he has gotten this time around. Going by Udhayanidhi Stalin's verdict, it now seems certain that we do have a big winner in store in the form of Leo.
The actor-politician took to social media a short while ago to share his views of Leo after watching the film and all Vijay fans would be pleased to know that his verdict is extremely positive. Udhayanidhi Stalin noted in his recent tweet that Leo benefits a lot from Lokesh's direction and also from the score composed by Anirudh Ravichander and the intense action choreographed by Anbariv. His short description of the film has certainly pleased the fans ahead of the mega release.
Action has been a vital component of Lokesh Kanagaraj's films and each of his previous releases, including Kaithi, Master and Vikram, has boasted exquisite fight and action sequences. Aside from the world that he builds through huge ensemble casts and underbelly-ish settings, one also looks forward to seeing how Lokesh has weaved action into this script. Leo, we hear, has now raised the bar.
