The Hindustan Times review of the film read, “Leo is the story of a seemingly ordinary man whose past comes calling—pushing him back to the verge of extreme violence. There is nothing inventive about this. Of course, we’ve seen this story play out in the movies all our lives. What’s inventive about Lokesh Kanagaraj’s Leo is how he stages this story, with exceptional support from stunt choreographers Anbariv, cinematographer Manoj Paramahamsa, editor Philomin Raj and music director Anirudh Ravichander.”
