A mesmerizing tribute to David Cronenberg’s 2005 cinematic gem, “A History of Violence,” “Leo” graced the screens on October 19. This action-packed thriller unveils the tale of a seemingly unassuming cafe owner portrayed by Vijay, who is compelled to confront his violent past.

The stellar cast includes luminaries like Sanjay Dutt, Trisha Krishnan, Arjun Sarja, Gautham Vasudev Menon, Madonna Sebastian, Priya Anand, Mysskin, Mansoor Ali Khan, George Maryan, and Mathew Thomas. The film’s production is in the capable hands of S.S. Lalit Kumar and Jagadish Palanisamy for Seven Screen Studio.

In the United States, “Leo” graced the screens under the banner of Prathyangira Cinemas and impressively earned $2.1 million over the weekend. Across the pond in the United Kingdom and Ireland, Ahimsa Entertainment took the reins and collected a commendable £1.07 million (equivalent to $1.3 million) in just three days of release.

Leo” gracefully extends the legacy of Kanagaraj’s Lokesh Cinematic Universe, which embarked on its journey with “Kaithi” in 2019, followed by “Vikram” in 2022, and in retrospect, even the 1986 title “Vikram.” Notably, characters from “Kaithi” and the 2022 “Vikram” found their way into the enthralling world of “Leo.”

This marks the second collaboration of the dynamic duo, Vijay, affectionately known as “Thalapathy” to his ardent fans, and Kanagaraj. Their previous venture, “Master” in 2021, was a resounding success, amassing $36 million. Following this, Vijay took the lead in “Beast” (2022) and “Varisu” (2023), both of which replicated the spectacular numbers of “Master.”

Kanagaraj’s “Vikram,” featuring the legendary Kamal Haasan, left a resounding impact on the Indian film industry in 2022, accumulating a staggering $60 million in gross revenues. The anticipation mounts for Kanagaraj’s upcoming 171st project, starring the South Indian cinematic icon Rajinikanth, which intriguingly remains untitled at this juncture. The cinematic world eagerly awaits another masterpiece from the maestro.
