Vijay thalapathy New movie
In early 2021, Lokesh Kanagaraj visited Vijay’s residence and narrated a script for his 66th film, Master. However, the position was transferred to Varisu in 2023. Lokesh confirmed discussions for Vijay’s 67th film, tentatively titled Thalapathy 67, in May. The project, funded by S. S. Lalit Kumar’s Seven Screen Studio, was announced in January 2023, with the official title Leo revealed on February 3, 2023.
The film is set to cost between ₹250-300 crore, with Vijay receiving ₹120 crore (US$15 million) as remuneration. However, he decided to take the revenue sharing model, receiving ₹50 crore (US$6.3 million) as an advance and a portion of the profits as his remuneration. Vijay thalapathy initially opposed making Leo a pan-Indian film, but was convinced by Lalit and Jagadish. The film was confirmed to be part of the Lokesh Cinematic Universe in August 2023, as the makers signed a no objection certificate with the franchise’s previous films.
Lokesh, a renowned director, spent six months writing and pre-production for the upcoming film Vijay thalapathy. He co-wrote the script with Rathna Kumar and Deeraj Vaidy, who joined the team in mid-August 2022. Lokesh emphasized that the film would be entirely made in his style, unlike Master, which he considered a 50% Vijay film and 50% his film. A muhurat puja was held on 5 December 2022, and the team shot a promotional video for nearly three days.
In January 2023, Manoj Paramahamsa was announced as cinematographer, marking his first collaboration with Lokesh and his third with Vijay. Anirudh Ravichander scored the music, and Lokesh retained most of his norm technicians, including editor Philomin Raj, stunt choreography duo Anbariv, dance choreographer Dinesh Kumar, and art director N. Sathees Kumar. Praveen Raja styled the costumes for Vijay. Ramkumar Balasubramanian was appointed as executive producer.
The Times of India reported in February 2023 that the film would have an extended post-production time due to Lokesh’s commitment to CGI. Vijay thalapathy began dubbing for his segments in July 2023 and completed it on 10 July. Visual effects supervisors are Monesh H. and V. Srinivas Mohan, with principal studios Al Zhara VFX and SkyHigh VFX. Digital intermediate and color grading began in August 2023. Chinmayi Sripaada dubbed Trisha’s lines in Tamil, Telugu, and Kannada.
Vijay thalapathy will wear a grey-shaded hairstyle in the film, which was finalized after 30 different looks. Trisha will be the female lead, pairing him for the fifth time after Ghilli (2004), Thirupaachi (2005), Aathi (2006), and Kuruvi (2008). Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt will play one of the main antagonists in his Tamil film debut and his second South Indian film after KGF: Chapter 2 (2022). Priya Anand and Arjun will also play important roles. Mysskin, Sandy Master, Gautham Vasudev Menon, and Mansoor Ali Khan will play prominent roles.
Malayalam actor Mathew Thomas will make his Tamil debut with the film. Manobala and Janany Kunaseelan will make their acting debut in a feature with the film. George Maryan was featured in the muhurat puja, and Abhirami Venkatachalam and Babu Antony were confirmed after participating in the film’s Kashmir schedule.
