Most Violent Film Coming Up On Indian screen

Thalapathy Vijay's upcoming movie "Leo" is scheduled for release on the 19th of this month. However, an overseas distributor who had an early viewing of the film remarked that it contains an unexpectedly high level of intense violence. Ironically, the distributing company for the film in the UK is "Ahimsa Entertainment."

“LEO is intense. With strong violence and detailed gory scenes that ended up being more graphic than even we anticipated, it’s not for the faint-hearted. Although we targeted a 15+ rating for LEO, the BBFC gave it an 18+, meaning only those aged 18 and up can see it in cinemas. This unfortunately excludes younger students between the ages of 15-17,” the distributor mentioned.

"Leo" is an action thriller film that boasts an ensemble cast including Trisha Krishnan, Arjun Sarja, Gautham Menon, Mysskin, and Priya Anand, alongside Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt.

The screenplay for the movie was co-written by Rathna Kumar, Deeraj Vaidy, and Lokesh Kanagaraj. Anirudh Ravichander is the composer behind the film's music, while Manoj Paramahamsa and Philomin Raj took charge of the cinematography and editing, respectively.

It remains to be seen whether the incorporation of intense violence in this film will impact its box office performance positively or negatively.

As it's a departure from the norm for a movie headlined by a prominent actor, the extreme violence may serve as an experiment in the realm of audience reception.
