The story revolves around a youth (Rajan Tejeshwar), who comes to a particularly notorious locality for some work.
There, he gets beaten by a local don (Chandra). This leads to changes in the lives of both Rajan and Chandra, with a video of their fight getting viral on the social media.
The sequence of events that happen after the incident and the action the protagonist decides to do, irrespective of the fact that the opposite person is whether friend or enemy is what Seyal is all about.
After a long gap, director Ravi Abbulu, who made Vijay-starrer Shajahan, is back with Seyal. A bunch of newcomers play the lead roles in this flick, which talks about the effects of an ‘action’ (seyal).
Despite being a fresher, Rajan Tejeshwar has come up with a matured performance. He shines in almost all scenes. Tharushi is a welcome find and she fits well to her role.
Remaining members of the cast, including Chandra, area good in their respectiveroles. Music for the film has been composed by Santhosh Vipin while Elayaraja has lent his expertise to the film as the director of photography. Editor Nirmal has made the cuts.
John Britto has taken care of the film’s art department while Kanal Kannan has choreographed the stunt portions. Jeevan Mayil and Lalith Anand have come up with interesting lyrics.
Producer CR Rajan, who has bankrolled this project under the banner of CR Productions, has delivered a good product thanks to Ravi Abbulu and other members of the team.
