The famous police procedural clichés are turned on their heads by Purusha Pretham. The fundamental premise of the movie is that most, if not all, of the well-known cop pictures produced in india have been deceiving us. For years, they have been Super Sebastian-ing us. Rarely do police officers get to pull off any brave deeds. Most of them are required to carry out instructions from superiors without prodding too much. And those routine chores occasionally might be unimportant and unworthy of being shared with one's family. police officers don't always chase after robbers, disperse crowds, and prevent offences before they happen.
Dileep is instructed by Sebastian to assist in retrieving a corpse from a lake. Sebastian demands that dileep complete the task even though the team's younger members offer to do it. Our initial assumption is that Sebastian is punishing dileep in some obnoxious powerplay. It also causes us to discover something more sinister a few scenes later. Dileep's son laments, "Some people think we are only entitled to carrying the dead body and cleaning bathrooms," and begs him not to do such work in the future. We respond, "Oh, sure. Caste discrimination is present.
This movie's cutting is fantastic; it provides a tonne of information that allows us to fill in the blanks and get a sense of how real police reports appear.
