In Ranjith's 'Leela', the protagonist Kuttiyapan steers his jeep across a multi-tentacled wasteland that ravenously gorges on the very lives that thrive on it. Hope has almost become extinct, souls have long fled the flesh caverns that they dwelled in and angels lie dangling from electric lines. A scalding indictment of the essential barbarity of humankind that has ingeniously been concealed under sly smiles, 'Leela' is as raw as the bleeding bruises that it vehemently rips open.

Excellent movie... Depicts what man is underneath all the masks he wear. I have watched just once, I have some friends who have been watching this repeatedly trying to understand the psyche of this lead character.
Well, this is strictly for people who like off beat movies. But being such a bold attempt to movie making, other reviewers could ve avoided using words like pseudo intellectual Renjith. If at all you find the story to be intelletual, then your comments should go to the story writer.

What? I wasted time watching this movie. Had good memories of Ranjith
movies when started watching it. Why this 90 minutes of melodrama. May
be I'm not a good Cinema critic to say this, But I'm saying what I
felt. ps. Can't imagine this movie goes to the home television as an
Onam movie. pps. Can anyone who saying this is a beautiful piece of art
watch this movie with their children??

താൻ ഒരു അപാര ബുദ്ധിജീവി ആണ് എന്ന് സ്വയം കരുതുന്ന, ഇടുങ്ങിയ ചിന്താഗതിക്കാരും കപട സദാചാര വാദികളും ആയ സൊ called avarage മലയാളീസിന്റെ ഇടയിൽ പെട്ടുപോയതിനാൽ വളരെ ബുദ്ധിമുട്ടുന്ന മഹാ സിനിമാക്കരാൻ രഞ്ജിത്ത് സാറിന്റെ മേൽ പറഞ്ഞ മലയാളികളെ ലക്‌ഷ്യം വെച്ചുള്ള സിനിമയത്രേ ലീല. എന്തായാലും ഞാൻ ഉൾപെടുന്ന avaerage മലയാളിക്ക് ഒന്നും മനസ്സിലാകില്ല എന്നതിനാൽ പ്രത്യേകിച്ച് എന്തേലും ചലനം ഉണ്ടാക്കുമോ എന്ന് സംശയം   Leela User Rating

Enthaanu story ennu manassilaayilla. First halfil kore comedy undaarunnu. 2nd half nalla flow undaarunnu. Climax entha mean cheythe ennu manassilaayilla. Ini vallo inner meaning undo ennu arinjooda. Oru kaaryam maathram manassilaayi, Biju Menon is a great actor. Malayala cinema has not used him properly. There is more to see in him.

A protracted depiction of a shallow short story. A man who tries to satisfy a sexual fetish has a change of mind at the end. But by then it is too late. The director tries to build up this not-so-particularly-special story as some sort of a new outlook on lust and sexual exploitation with unnecessary and forced symbolism, deliberately sombre background music etc. If you want to show lust and sexual exploitation, just show it without couching it with angels and redemption and shit like that.   Leela User Rating

"ലീല".... പ്രിയ രഞ്ജിത്ത്, ഒരു നല്ല കഥ visual ആക്കുമ്പോൾ അത് നല്ല സിനിമ ആകണം എന്നില്ല. ഇന്നത്തെ കാലത്തെ ലൈംഗീക അരാജകതത്വങ്ങളോട് എതിരെ ഉള്ള വെല്ലുവിളികൾ ഒന്നും ശക്തം ആയില്ല ചിത്രത്തിൽ. ലീല എന്ന ചിത്രത്തിൻറെ ഏക ആശ്വാസം വിജയ രാഘവൻറെ അഭിനയം മാത്രമാണ്.

Worst movies & review is even worse. 3 stars? what were you smoking Veeyen? Main culprit is story which will not at all please the larger section of the audience. You will be speechless after seeing end, emotions will drive you to say curse words & even motivate you to tear screens.Logic is out of question, comic scenes are crappy & on top of that Biju Menon does unnecessary things which no one would even think of doing. What will a man do with an elephant and a young girl? Shit !! &%@!()@>"?!}|   Leela User Rating

Lust, gluttony, fetish. Kuttiyappan is original. A man who is living his life to the fullest. Right or wrong is not in his vocabulary. But he never hurts a soul. He takes an extra effort to see that nobody gets hurt by his deeds. Yet he lives the life of a sinner. Kuttiyappan may be the mighty Satan himself. Biju Menon as kutiiyappan excels in performance like never before. Earlier, I enjoyed his Vellimoonga.. Yet, in this one he pushes his limits much further. Easily a performance that would put the other stalwarts of cinema to shame.
Supported by Vijayaraghavan, as a father to a teenage daughter, who is constantly perturbed and dumbstruck by the world that is today, unable to accept the reality. Also, equally good performance by Indrans. And all other supporting characters.. An ensemble of wonderful characters and a brutally original story and sequence of events. I, later learnt that 'leela' is an adaptation if a short story. If so, I would like to get a copy of it. I would watch this movie again. So moved by the story, I would pay ₹220 @PVR forum Bangalore again to watch this terribly directed movie by the worst director malayalam cinema has seen.

Renjith who himself profess him as an intellectual of no kind like before tries to go completely against the trend to justify his hegemony as the most different director on his ranks for his reassertion to be different than all,He tries to pull one an aravindan in direction terms through this film,and takes the rawest approach and ceremonial never excepting ending befitting his wish to remain way up from the pack for his ego,His approach to being different has made this film despicable hell   Leela User Rating
