What's Behind

Kiran Abbavaram's Sebastian PC524 generated interest among movie lovers. The film directed by Balaji Sayyapureddy hit the screens on February 4, 2022. Let us see how the film fared at the box office.

Story Review

Sebastian (Kiran Abbavaram) is a PC (Police Constable) having number 524. He hides his weakness and gets a job in the police department to fulfill the last wish of his deceased father at the behest of his mother Mary (Rohini Raghuvaran). He promises his mother not to disclose his weakness to anyone but his lover Helly (Nuveksha/Namrata Dandekar), Dr.Chakravarthy (Surya) and his friend Teja is aware of it. Due to his weakness, he gets transferred and finally lands in Madanapally. He manages his job with the help of his colleague Niranjan (Ravi Teja) and boss Abaram (Srikanth Iyengar). But things take a shocking turn with the murder of Lilly (Komalee Prasad). Where this leads to and what is the connection to Lilly's husband Rahul (Adarsh Balakrishna) forms the rest of the story.

Artists, Technicians Review

Kiran Abbavaram played the lead role. He tried to be different and do justice to his role. Though he is ok in the role of a cop who fears darkness due to his night blindness, the weak elevation of his character spoiled the script. Except for showcasing fear throughout the film and come with just singular expression, there is nothing Kiran could do in the film. The fault lies with the director as he failed to make use of his acting talent. Nuvekha/Namrata Dandekar performed her role well.So is Komalee Prasad. Both got limited dialogues and just passed through the motions. Ravi Teja who acted as cop Niranjan performed well. Srikant Iyengar played the role perfectly. However, the scenes of the police officer and the cop looked silly and without any logic. Director turned everyone into comic pieces and caricatures. Rohini Raghuvaran performed well as the mother of Kiran Abbavaram. The scenes came quite well. Adarsh Balakrishna did well and others played their roles accordingly.

Director Balaji Sayyapureddy tried to show Kiran Abbavaram in a different genre entertainer and thrill movie lovers. Though his idea is good, he failed miserably. Right from the start to the finish, none of the scenes generate interest. The proceedings start on a dull note and nothing excites as all the characters pass through the motions. The introduction itself makes people wonder whether they have come to the right film or not as other characters are introduced before Kiran Abbavaram.

Director spent a lot of time highlighting Kiran Abbavaram's night blindness to the core. However, he failed to concentrate on the story and this turned out to be the weak link. Kiran Abbavaram is shown as completely meek and weak even in the daylight and this turned out to be the drawback. With the lead actor not doing anything till the interval except trying to engage viewers showing his night blindness antics, it ended up irritating the viewers. The entire first half is filled with illogical scenes, listless narration testing the patience of the viewers.

The second half starts with the murder and investigation and it becomes a  mockery. The outdated plot and haphazard scenes confuse leaving viewers scratching their heads and running for cover. After the painful saga with Kiran Abbavaram overdoing his night blindness scenes giving immense torture to the viewers, the story comes to an end much to the relief of one and all. Director failed with his story, screenplay, and direction and the outdated plot did not help the cause as he failed in his execution.

There is nothing much to talk about in the technical department. Gibran's music and BGM are just average. The cinematography of Raj K Nalli is ok as only night scenes are shot to highlight the hero's night blindness weakness. Editing of Viplav Nyshadam failed completely but had he worked sincerely, there wouldn't have been any film and the viewers would have been absolved of this immense pain.
