Vijay’s action-packed film ‘Leo,’ directed by Lokesh Kanagaraj, has made a significant mark in Kollywood in 2023, marching steadily towards a global collection of Rs 600 crore. However, in recent days, the film’s domestic box office earnings have experienced a noticeable decline. As it enters its third week in theaters, the question on everyone’s mind is whether ‘Leo’ will bounce back and regain momentum during the upcoming weekend.
‘Leo’ Faces a Drop in Collection in India:
Since its release on October 19, ‘Leo’ has been a topic of massive anticipation, but it has received mixed reviews. Over the past few days, the film’s collection figures in India have witnessed a downward trend. Early trade estimates suggest that ‘Leo’ has earned approximately Rs 2.90 crore net in India, with weekdays contributing to this decline. The film’s performance during the weekend will serve as a litmus test for its continued success in theaters.
As of the 15th day of its release, ‘Leo’ has accumulated a net collection of Rs 317.85 crore in India. On November 2, the film registered an occupancy rate of 16.89 percent, indicating a decline compared to earlier weeks.
All About ‘Leo’:
‘Leo’ represents the second collaboration between Thalapathy Vijay and director Lokesh Kanagaraj, following their successful venture ‘Master.’ The film features a screenplay written by Lokesh, Rathna Kumar, and Deeraj Vaidy. This action-packed entertainer boasts an ensemble cast, including Vijay, Trisha, Sanjay Dutt, Arjun Sarja, Mysskin, Sandy, and Gautham Menon in pivotal roles. Supporting roles feature Mathew Thomas, Mansoor Ali Khan, Priya Anand, and several other talented actors.
Produced by Seven Screen Studio, ‘Leo’ features a captivating musical score composed by Anirudh Ravichander. The film’s crew includes cinematographer Manoj Paramahamsa and editor Philomin Raj.
As ‘Leo’ navigates its journey through the box office, it faces the challenge of reversing its recent decline in collections. With a successful track record and a compelling cast, the film has the potential to recapture the audience’s attention and regain momentum in the coming days. The weekend’s performance will be closely watched to see if ‘Leo’ can extend its triumphant run in theaters.
