A Petition Seeking “Psychological Evaluation” Filed Against Lokesh Kanagaraj Regarding Leo Content

<p>Director Lokesh Kanagaraj of Leo is in legal hot water after a suit was filed against him at the High Court’s Madurai bench. Raju Murugan has petitioned from Madurai to have the best director’s psychiatric test conducted and to have his violent film Leo banned. In addition, the petitioner said that his film encourages violence. The film Leo, directed by Lokesh Kanagaraj and starring Thalapathy Vijay, was a box office success in 2023. The filmmaker has been under fire for depicting violence in his Vikram, Leo, and Kaithi-centered cinematic world, Lokesh Cinematic world (LCU). Leo was criticized as well for elevating violence and smoking. Raju Murugan submitted a petition on January 3rd, asking for Lokesh Kanagaraj to undergo a psychiatric assessment.</p>

<p>According to the petition, Leo has several sequences that glorify violence, such as the use of firearms, references to religion, drug use, and aggression against women and children. In addition, Lokesh Kanagaraj was charged with propagating the notion that almost any crime may be committed with the help of the police by depicting riots, criminal activity, and drug trafficking.</p>
<p>The petition argued that the Censor Board of Film Certification (CBFC) need to examine these sorts of films and use more caution when granting censor certificates to films of this kind. He thus pleaded with the director to order a psychiatric assessment and requested that Leo be completely barred from entering the country in accordance with Indian criminal legislation by the court. Judges Krishna Kumar and Vijay Kumar heard the matter, however it was postponed since the petitioner’s attorney did not show up for the hearing.</p>
<p>After Master, Leo was director Lokesh Kanagaraj’s second collaboration with star Thalapathy Vijay. Other actors like Trisha, Sanjay Dutt, Arjun Sarja, Mysskin, Sandy, and Gautham Menon play important parts in the action-packed thriller. Many people questioned why the filmmaker praised violence once the film’s teaser was shown. There was a lot of violence even in his earlier films, such as Kaithi and Vikram. It’s “fun,” as Lokesh Kanagaraj said in a Galatta Plus interview. He said that while violence is not something that would occur in real life, his films are meant to be seen for amusement purposes alone. For fun, he exaggerates and adds music.</p>
