Netflix is now streaming “Leo,” the movie starring Thalapathy Vijay. The film available to watch in Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, Kannada, and Hindi. It debuted on the platform at 12:30 p.m. The worldwide digital premiere is supposed to take place on November 28.
Drawing inspiration from “A History of Violence” (2005), an adaptation of a graphic novel of the same name. “Leo” is a film packed with intense action and stars an ensemble cast that includes Vijay, Trisha, Sanjay Dutt, Arjun Sarja, Madonna Sebastian, Priya Anand, Gautham Vasudev Menon, Mysskin, Sandy Master, Mathew Thomas, and Mansoor Ali Khan.
The formulaic but satisfying Indian adaptation of “A History of Violence,” “Leo,” is both what it seems and what it isn’t. Suppose you’re expecting a loud, violent, and bass-heavy action musical about a coffee shop owner who has to defend his family from a crazy drug dealer who thinks our family man is a vicious ex-gangster. In that case, you won’t be let down.
The film Leo, starring Vijay, has been widely screened in theatres. As soon as the movie’s first showing ended early on October 19, reviews began to come in. Fans are excitedly sharing their favorites and disappointments on social media, which is ablaze with news and reviews about the Vijay starrer.
The last several action films directed by Vijay have also functioned as oversized showcases for the chipmunk-cheeked lead actor. Former child actor Vijay (“Beast,” “Varisu”) still lacks range, but he isn’t really in need of it. He is an action star who looks good, using his feet, fists, and various mallets and blades to take down large groups of tough guys. Arivumani and Abumani, better known by their stage name “Anbariv,” are credited with organizing the movie’s “Action” as action choreographers and stunt coordinators.
Vijay is a well-known and captivating marquee topper, so it’s not surprising that he can change his mood, style, or pose. Even so, it is remarkable to watch Vijay, who manages to look perpetually young despite the skunk streaks in his meticulously styled beard, portray a man who objects to the fact that he is a killer whenever he is reminded of it. Even a catchy song implies that “Mr. Leo Das is a badass” in a few scenes. Who then does Vijay believe he is deceiving?
Fortunately, Parthiban doesn’t have to be credible to be more than a setting for superb special effects. In persona, Vijay comes across as a devoted but fatherly husband to Sathya (Trisha) and a stern but loving father to pouty preteen Mathi (Iyal) and courteous adolescent Siddharth (Mathew Thomas).
According to certain incidental information, Parthiban is known in Theog as “an ordinary person, yeah, just a peace lovin’ soul,” to quote a song. Even more convincing is Vijay’s ability to dispatch waves upon waves of violent bad guys with apparent efficiency. These bad guys either think Parthiban is Leo Das, Antony’s estranged son, or are oblivious to who they are dealing with.
