The Long Take

Nov 26 2023 • 29 mins

Leo, the new Tamil-language blockbuster starring “Thalapathy” Vijay, is now on Netflix.

We discuss the film’s abysmal storytelling, the charmless central performance, and poorly designed action sequences. We also talk about the larger Lokesh Cinematic Universe and how shoehorned-in the references to the franchise feel.

Along the way, we attempt to dissect the Inception-level flashback sequence and discuss the strange decision to cast Sanjay Dutt as the villain, only to dub over his original voice and reduce his character to a motiveless henchman.
