after scoring a hit with sr kalyanamandapam, young actor kiran abbavaram has created sebastian pc 524, which hit screens today. let’s see how it is.
Sebastian (Kiran Abbavaram) is an innocent and fearful police officer who suffers from night blindness. he manages to escape night shifts, but one day when he is on shift, a woman is suspiciously murdered. later, the police department suspends him. so, sebastián begins the investigation on his behalf. is it a suicide or a murder? How did sebastian overcome his disorder and solve the case? that forms the rest of the story.
kiran abbavaram has already proven his worth as an actor and in this movie he also performed well as an innocent and fearful policeman. his comedy timing is pretty good. Raja Vikram who played Kiran Abbavaram’s friend should be appreciated for his acting skills.
srikanth iyengar also gave his best. Although it is his debut film, director Balaji Sayyapureddy prepared a decent theme. the background score is one of the main assets of the film. the cinematography is fine and the production values are rich and you can witness them on screen.
despite having a good story and a great performance actor, the director failed to make the film attractive. the police drama has so much room to narrate it in a crisp way, but the director did not take advantage of it. If he had done more work on the script, the film would have become an edge-of-the-seat thriller.
In addition, the characterizations of other actors are very poor. the role of the heroine nuveksha is not up to the mark. Rohini and Adarsh Balakrishna’s roles are unimpressive. some scenes in the second half become a hindrance to the good story. plus, the climax seems to be silly and forceful.
director balaji had a good vision, but his bad narration makes sebastian pc 524 a normal movie. ghibran delivers an excellent background score throughout the film. Raj K Nalli’s camera work is great and the production values are rich. viplav nyshadam’s editing is ok but could have cut some slow scenes.
Overall, Sebastian PC 524 is a half-hearted crime police drama with Kiran Abbavaram as the only savior with his heartfelt performance. the movie could have been an engaging thriller if the script had been more gripping. if you ignore some boring scenes, you can give this movie a shot this weekend if you have nothing else to do.
