Modified On: 19 October 2023 | Reviewed By:

Storyline: The plot centers around Parthiban (played by Thalapathy Vijay), a cafe proprietor in Himachal Pradesh leading an apparently ordinary life with his family. However, his peaceful existence is shattered when he's compelled to shield his family from a menacing gang of criminals. This triggers a series of events where Parthiban becomes ensnared with gangsters Antony Das (Sanjay Dutt) and Harold Das (Arjun Sarja), who mistakenly believe he is their lost relative, Leo Das (also portrayed by Thalapathy Vijay). The film unfolds as we delve into the enigma surrounding Leo Das and witness how Parthiban navigates through the ensuing chaos.

The Good:

Engaging First Half: The film's first half is carefully paced to establish the characters and immerse the audience in Parthiban's world. The cafe fight scene is a highlight, with Thalapathy Vijay delivering a captivating performance that showcases his acting prowess.

Action Sequences: The action sequences in the first half are well-executed, keeping the audience engaged.

Cinematography: The movie boasts solid cinematography, making for a visually engaging experience.

The Not-So-Good:

Second-Half Slump: Unfortunately, "Leo" falls victim to the common issue of many films lately, with the second half suffering from slow pacing and a lack of significant story progression.

Problematic Flashbacks: The film's flashback portions are a letdown, featuring uninspiring writing that doesn't live up to the expectations set by the director's previous works.

Underutilized Characters: Sanjay Dutt and Arjun fail to make a substantial impact due to the shortcomings in character development. Supporting actors like Priya Anand are also underutilized.

Emotional Depth Missing: The intended emotional scenes lack the necessary punch, leaving the audience wanting more.

Cinematography: Manoj Paramahamsa's cinematography stands out, especially in action sequences, but is let down by subpar VFX in certain scenes.

Music: Anirudh's background score is decent, though it doesn't reach the heights of his previous works. 

Direction: Lokesh Kanagaraj, known for his impressive track record in filmmaking, presents a somewhat satisfactory product in "Leo." Although the first half is skillfully executed, the second half grapples with sustaining its momentum.

In Summary, 'Leo' is mostly about Thalapathy Vijay's performance. The first half is interesting, even though it's a bit slow. However, the second half has problems, especially with flashbacks and the characters. It may not meet all expectations, but "Leo" can still entertain action movie fans.
