The Hindustan Times review of Leo reads, “By no means is Leo about peaceful reformation. In fact, it’s quite the opposite. Leo is the assertion that reformation is a well-performed act that is right to be undone as needed. So, it is yet another edition of Lokesh Kanagaraj’s filmography about lawless violent men, who fancy themselves as saviours of the world, fighting other lawless violent men we are conned into thinking of as distinctly more evil.”
Apart from Vijay, the film also features Sanjay Dutt, Trisha Krishnan and Arjun Sarja. Recently, superstar Rajinikanth also talked about Leo and said, “I pray to God, that movie should become a huge hit.” In order to make the release a grand affair, Seven Screen Studios Production had filed a petition before the Madras High Court requesting to allow the film to be screened as early as 4 am across cinema halls in Tamil Nadu on the day of its release.
