|Movie Name||LEO Telugu Movie|
|Cast||Thalapathy Vijay, Sanjay Dutt, Trisha, Arjun, Gautham Vasudev Menon|
Sotry: Parthiban (Thalapathy Vijay) runs a peaceful cafe in Theog, Himachal Pradesh, with his wife Satya (Trisha) and two children. Their life takes a drastic turn when goons threaten his family. In a desperate act, Parthiban defends his loved ones, unintentionally stepping into a web of danger.
As he grapples with the chaos, he encounters gangsters Antony Das (Sanjay Dutt) and Harold Das (Arjun), who mistake him for their missing family member, Leo Das (Thalapathy Vijay). The film unfolds the mystery of Leo Das and chronicles Parthiban’s journey to escape the turmoil.
Positive Points: first half – Vijay Performance – part of LCU – well-crafted action blocks – Negitive Points: flashback portions – Old Story Line – Songs
Verdict: In essence, Leo is an action-packed film hinging heavily on Thalapathy Vijay’s performance. While the first half captivates despite a slow pace, the movie falters in the second half due to weak character development and flashback sequences. Although it offers moments for franchise fans, the magic seen in previous works by director Lokesh Kanagaraj seems somewhat absent. The film’s success will likely be determined by Vijay’s star power and the appeal of the LCU (Leo Cinematic Universe) to the audience.
