Recently the announcement promo of Thalapathy Vijay’s Leo was unveiled, which is being helmed by Lokesh Kanagaraj. After the stupendous success of Vikram, Lokesh and Vijay’s second collaboration after Master is said to be a part of Lokesh’s universe.
The Tamil trade analysts are going gaga over how the title, Leo, is perfect for a pan-Indian film. They are saying that Leo has a terrific title value with respect to the pan-India market. They feel that the title will be easily understood by even the North audience. The title being a single word is a very big plus for the film.
But it needs to be understood that Vijay’s last few films like Master and Beast also had single-word titles which could be easily understood on a pan-India level, but the films still failed to create any impact.
Age is not on Vijay’s side to create an impact like Prabhas, Allu Arjun, or Yash. Indeed, his market is growing slowly in Telugu states, but it would be taking it too far to say that Vijay’s Leo will shatter records on the pan-India level just because of its title.
