Not too long ago, a fan attempting to click on a selfie with Sonu Nigam at a live performance resulted in a serious scuffle, a police case and made headlines for a number of days. Cricketer Prithvi Shaw is presently locked in a authorized battle with a social media influencer, who acquired into a serious battle with the participant and allegedly vandalised his automotive after he refused to click on selfies along with her.
Within the age of Instagram likes, the act of clicking a selfie with a star is a way more critical matter than it ought to have been. The fan assumes the fitting to demand, and the star appears to haven’t any proper to refuse.
These incidents have uncannily occurred very near the discharge of the Raj Mehta-directed movie, Selfiee, the place a fan’s want to spend 5 minutes along with his idol and click on one picture snowballs into huge drama performed out in entrance of nationwide media.
The movie is a remake of the Malayalam comedy-drama Driving Licence. I haven’t watched the unique so I can not touch upon how good a remake that is. Nevertheless it undoubtedly has the Raj Mehta comedy signature throughout. Selfiee is in the identical house as his Good Newwz and Jugjugg Jeeyo – each standard comedies anchored on related points.
RTO Inspector Om Prakash Aggarwal (Emraan Hashmi) is a big fan of celebrity Vijay Kumar (Akshay Kumar). However this fan turns foe when a small misunderstanding will get blown out of proportion. From then on, it turns into an ego tussle between a celebrity and a typical man, who take turns in outwitting each other.
Slapstick and compelled comedian conditions however, the movie brings up some very related points. Cancel tradition, boycott Bollywood, pretend social media developments, trial by media – the makers have packed in all the things with a view to make it a complete entertainer. The 2 songs to start with and finish credit are additionally participating.
Selfiee is pleasurable in elements. Some dialogues will make you chuckle. Akshay will get a number of display screen house to flaunt his celebrity swag, whereas Emraan Hashmi tries his finest to look and sound plausible as an RTO inspector in Bhopal. Sadly, the setting is just too sanitised for him to look actual. Nushrratt Bharuccha, Diana Penty, Adah Sharma have small elements to play. Why would an actor like Abhimanyu Singh take up the position of Suraj Dewan, beats me.
There are a number of exaggerations and over-dramatisations that the script is determined by to take the story ahead. If Om Prakash had spoken up on the very starting, the difficulty would most likely have been solved proper there. However then, he wouldn’t have picked a battle to revive his self-respect and a dramatic battle with the nation’s greatest star wouldn’t have ensued. And so, that logic needs to be suspended.
The movie does take a stand in favour of the movie stars, to point out how weak their popularity is within the palms of the media and the general public. On the identical time, it additionally highlights the fickle-minded mob, which in the future bays for blood and subsequent day worships the identical actor, as quickly as he manages to realize some sympathy. When Akshay Kumar high-jumps into an indignant mob to save lots of Emraan Hashmi, the director makes it clear who the actual hero is. It’s the star who wins, on the finish of the day.
