It is a science-fiction crime thriller based around R&AW agents who try to tackle a high-tech criminal mastermind who wreaks havoc across India.

Plot[edit]

Dr. Ganesh Shasthry is a renowned scientist who has been conducting research around the innovative uses of science, however he chooses to keep his research and innovations a secret to avoid falling into the wrong hands and being misused for destructive purposes. Parallelly, R&AW agents Puneet Sahani and Madhavan Shasthry (a.k.a. Maddy) attack a lonely house in the middle of a forest and capture the terrorists hiding inside it. Deputy Secretary Arundati Nayar receives an intel from the British MI6 about a certain Rohit who is flying into India who could prove to be dangerous. Impressed with Puneet's work, she assigns the case to Puneet. Rohit arrives in Bengaluru. Dr. Ganesh Shasthry is experimenting his new invention - DNA Transformation. Rohit arrives, witnesses the experiment and takes away the invention by threatening Dr. Ganesh Shasthry. Meanwhile, Puneet and Maddy are awarded for their recent work in capturing the terrorists. Dr. Ganesh Shasthry arrives at the party and requests his son Maddy to come with him urgently. Arundati Nayar suggests Maddy to take Puneet with him. The trio arrive at Dr. Ganesh's lab where he reveals what Rohit did. Dr. Ganesh Shasthry is about to reveal something else about Rohit when he is suddenly hit by a bullet. He struggles for breath as he utters just one word, "Stabiliti" before he dies in Maddy's arms. Next day, news is announced that ten people have been murdered in Bengaluru at 12 midnight under mysterious circumstances. In another news, many bank accounts are reported to have been hacked and money stolen. Havoc wreaks across India with many people suffering and panicking for having lost all their money; and that the murders and the hacking of the banks' servers are linked. Maddy, though on emergency leave for a week, is curious to know more about these incidents and takes help of his colleague Deepa to get access to the CCTV footage of the murder spots. He is shocked to see that all the CCTV footage at seven different murder spots reveal Maddy walking into the victim's home exactly at 12 midnight. Maddy is panicked and immediately jumps into action to find out more and later learns about the research projects which his late father had been working on and also learns that the banks' servers were hacked using a computer located at the same lonely house in the forest where they had captured the terrorists. He contacts Puneet and the duo immediately reach the forest in search of clues. Unfortunately, they get themselves locked in the house with a bomb ticking. They manage to escape unhurt within seconds before the bombs explode, bringing down the entire house. Puneet and Maddy are bewildered. However, Maddy seems to realize something and is suddenly excited. He takes Puneet back to Bengaluru to reveal his late father's inventions. How the duo tackle Rohit forms the rest of the story.

Development and Funding[edit]

Stabiliti[3] is an improvised remake of the "WHO?" series of four independent English films made by the same director. The four "WHO?" films were made between 2007 and 2017 filmed in India and UK. The idea of combining and improvising the plots of all these four films into one Kannada film was envisioned in early 2018. The first draft of Stabiliti script was ready by late 2018.

The film struggled to secure funding even after being pitched to many producers, hence the project initially failed to kick-off until June 2020 amidst the COVID-19 crisis. Goutham Kanade decided to fund this ambitious film himself and the project gained momentum with the pre-production work starting in July 2021 including casting, locations, script improvements etc. Kashyap Bhaskar who was involved with Goutham from the genesis of the idea of Stabiliti and also did a small role in WHO:4, was confirmed to play the main protagonist Puneet Sahani, a R&AW agent. Sandeep T C was confirmed to play Maddy followed by Srinidhi Talak who would play the antagonist Rohit. Lakshmi Ambuga was confirmed to play the crucial role of Priya, a R&AW agent. Renowned actor S N Sethuram was roped in to play the pivotal character of the Senior Research Physicist Dr. Ganesh Shasthry followed by Santosh Karki who would play Sukumar, a Senior Field Officer at R&AW.

Production[edit]

All filming was done during the weekends as the entire team of Stabiliti are full-time working professionals in their respective fields. Principal photography started on 7th September 2020 in Bengaluru and moved to a forest location near Kokkada from 31st October to 1st November 2020. Filming continued in various locations across Bengaluru. A funeral scene was filmed near Hassan on 23rd January 2021. Filming was delayed due to the Covid second wave lockdown. The climax scene and a couple of other smaller scenes are expected to be filmed by end of June 2021.
