Thalapathy Vijay’s “Leo” Roars at the Indian Box Office
In the realm of Indian cinema, Thalapathy Vijay’s latest offering, “Leo,” has been creating a seismic stir at the box office. Since its grand debut, it has taken the nation by storm, delivering a remarkable performance that transcends linguistic boundaries. According to Leo’s official presence on X (formerly Twitter), the film, ranked at an impressive #3 position, has amassed a staggering ₹403.5 crore during its opening weekend.
Day 1: A Flying Start
On its maiden voyage into the cinematic world, “Leo” raked in a commendable ₹64.8 crore. This impressive figure was divided among four distinct languages: Tamil, Telugu, Hindi, and Kannada. Among them, the Tamil version outshone the rest, accumulating a remarkable ₹48.96 crore, while the Telugu rendition contributed a respectable ₹12.9 crore. The Hindi and Kannada adaptations, though more modest in comparison, managed to secure ₹2.8 crore and ₹14 lakh, respectively.
A Slight Dip on Day 2
The film’s financial journey experienced a minor dip on the following day, with earnings totaling ₹35.25 crore. This marked a 45.6% decline from its sensational opening day. Nevertheless, the Tamil version continued to maintain its dominance, fetching ₹29.04 crore, while the Telugu variant managed to gather ₹4.5 crore. The Hindi and Kannada versions reported even more modest returns, with collections amounting to ₹1.6 crore and ₹11 lakh, respectively.
Despite the initial decline, “Leo” made an astounding comeback over the weekend. On its third day, which was a Saturday, the film’s earnings soared to ₹39.8 crore, reflecting a remarkable 12.91% increase from the previous day. The Tamil iteration continued to lead the way with a whopping ₹32.9 crore in earnings, while the other linguistic versions also made steady contributions. By Sunday, the fourth day, the film experienced another surge, pulling in ₹42.1 crore, marking a 5.78% increase from Saturday’s collections.
Anticipating Day 5
As the film gears up for its fifth day, Monday, early estimates suggest that it is likely to secure approximately ₹25 crore in earnings. Notably, “Leo” has garnered special acclaim in the Tamil market, consistently outperforming other linguistic adaptations.
Leo Movie Review: A Rollercoaster of Opinions
“Leo” has sparked a whirlwind of reviews, with some hailing it as a cinematic masterpiece and others finding it somewhat underwhelming.
The Hindustan Times opines, “Despite the transformation depicted in ‘Leo,’ the film does not delve into the implications of choosing violence or forsaking it. In fact, it revels in its unapologetic, bold nature—after all, the film is titled ‘Leo.’ We witness a glint of unadulterated malevolence when Parthiban finally unveils his origins.”
The Indian Express, on the other hand, praises Vijay’s performance, asserting, “Vijay delivers a career-best performance in Lokesh Kanagaraj’s nearly misfired venture.”
Meanwhile, the India Today review suggests, “While the first half is replete with dramatic moments, the second half takes on a more predictable tone. The final act, in particular, veers towards melodrama.”
In conclusion, “Leo” continues to make waves at the Indian box office, offering a diverse range of opinions and a cinematic experience that keeps the audience engaged and intrigued.
