Lokesh Kanagaraj, a prominent young filmmaker in Tamil cinema, has recently found himself in the midst of a controversy following comments made in post-release interviews related to his film “Leo.” The remarks regarding the film’s storyline have drawn mixed reactions from audiences and fans.
A Controversial Statement
In a recent interview, Lokesh Kanagaraj stated that the audience might not know the actual story of “Leo.” He suggested that the events depicted in the film could be solely based on the character Mansoor’s perspective and might not reflect the true narrative.
The filmmaker’s comments have ignited a significant backlash on social media platforms. Some netizens expressed their displeasure, asserting that Kanagaraj should acknowledge the film’s weaknesses and move forward rather than justifying them with theories about fake flashbacks and connections.
Critics of Kanagaraj’s statement argue that it undermines his credibility as a filmmaker. They question the purpose of creating a film if its entire storyline is portrayed as a mere perception. Such remarks are seen as negligent and overconfident, especially considering the audience’s intelligence.
