A mental asylum gets caught in fire and 30 of its inmates die in the ghastly mishap. Even as opposition parties and the media demand the resignation of minister Rajarathnam (Thalaivasal Vijay), a crime reporter comes up with a shocking revelation.
He informs the minister that what happened in the asylum was not an accident, but a planned mass murder by a gang involved in organ trafficking. Soon, the minister gets murdered.
In the meantime, there is Saravedi Saravanan (Nakul), a happy-go-lucky youngster who aspires to become an actor. He is followed by a scriptwriter (Aanchal Munjal) and her friends as they find him interesting.
Because of his carefree attitude, Saravanan often gets scolded by his father, who is an ambulance driver. One day, when his father suffers from health ailment, Saravanan becomes ambulance driver and carries a corpse.
Before he could reach the destination, he realises that the deceased man was the crime reporter and the people accompanying his body are not his relatives, but members of the organ trafficking gang.
There is some strong evidence stored in the mobile phone of the reporter and what Saravanan does with it forms the crux of the story.
Directed by Malayalam filmmaker Raj Babu, Sei looks interesting on paper, but the execution is just average. However, the scenes are eyecatching and music is impressive.
Nakkul performs good as super active youth, while Aanchal Munjal’s role fails to give her much scope to perform. In fact, she disappears half-way.
There are veterans like Prakash Raj, Nasser and Thalaivasal Vijay and each of them has performed good. Cinematographer Vijay Ulaganathan and music composer Nyx Lopez are the biggest strengths of Sei.
An average action thriller, Sei provides some engaging moments and it can be watched if you have enough free time in your hand this weekend.
