Kiran Abbavaram is signing projects one after another at a jet speed. After an impressive debut with Raja Varu Rani Garu and following it up with the success of SR Kalyanamandapam, the young hero is now back with the comedy thriller ‘Sebastian P.C. 524’. The basic premise of the movie is quite interesting and the trailer was well appreciated by all. But, can Kiran Abbavaram score a hat-trick with this film? Can it deliver on the promise shown by the trailer? Let’s find out.

Story: Sebastian (Kiran Abbavaram) is a young police constable in the small town of Madanapalli. He lands the police job with great difficulty. However, there’s one catch- Sebastian suffers from night blindness which is why he always yearns for a day duty which is often understood as his incompetence. One night a murder takes place on his watch and he is suspended for not being efficient at duty. How he redeems himself is what follows next.

Performances: Kiran Abbavaam has shouldered the entire plot of Sebastian P.C. 524 by himself and is present through the length and breadth of the movie. He has effortlessly portrayed the character of an insecure police constable. His Rayalaseema accent also looks quite convincing and the director Balaji Sayyapureddy must be appreciated for it. Komalee Prasad and Rohini are fine in their roles and don’t have much scope for performance. The same is the case with newcomer Nuveksha along with Srikanth Iyengar and Adarsh Balakrishna who are just the screen fillers.

Analysis: In the case of murder mysteries and investigative thrillers, it becomes even more crucial to have a water-tight screenplay. This is where Sebastian P.C. 524 fails. The writing is quite weak and especially towards the second half, the film loses its steam and what could have been an amazing thriller, ends up as an undercooked drama. The supporting characters have also been underutilized which makes the overall viewing experience quite dull.

Plus Points:

  • Kiran Abbavaram
  • Ghibran’s BGM
  • Comedy

Minus Points:

  • Poor Screenplay
  • Underutilised supporting cast
  • Shoddy editing
  • No emotional connect

Verdict: Sebastian P.C. 524 has quite an interesting premise. The thought of a night blinded constable solving crimes makes for a great concept and had it been for proper execution with a tight screenplay, the film would have definitely won over the audience. Kiran Abbavaram is the sole positive spot in this story filled with plotholes and half backed narrative.
