Leo box office collection
According to Sacnilk.com, Leo earned ₹68 crore nett in India on its first day for all languages. In Tamil Nadu, the film is expected to gross ₹32.00 crore, in Kerala ₹12.50 crore, Karnataka ₹14.50 crore, AP-TG ₹17 crore and ROI ₹4 crore. The total India gross is expected to be ₹80 crore. While the overseas amount is likely to be ₹65 crore, the worldwide gross will be ₹145 crore.
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."
Fans celebrated Leo in several places
A fan couple of Vijay exchanged garlands and rings in a theatre during the screening of Leo. Several videos and pictures have been doing the rounds on the internet in which Vijay's fans danced and cheered. Many places even witnessed a sea of fans thronging cinema halls with full "band baaja". Fans also celebrated the release of Leo outside the Sree Padmanabha Theatre in Thiruvananthapuram.
Apart from Vijay, the film also features Sanjay Dutt, Trisha Krishnan, Arjun Sarja, Mansoor Ali Khan, Priya Anand, Mysskin and Gautham Vasudev Menon. Anirudh Ravichander has composed the music for the film. The project is produced by SS Lalit Kumar. Recently, superstar Rajinikanth also talked about the film Leo and said, "I pray to God, that movie should become a huge hit."
