Selfiee starring Akshay Kumar and Emraan Hashmi released in cinemas on February 24 and here are some mixed reactions from the Janta!

Directed by Raj Mehta, Selfiee is the Hindi remake of the 2019 Malayalam film, Driving License. The story revolves around Vijay Kumar (Akshay Kumar) who is a megastar just like how he is IRL. He has that aura around him when he walks, does his stunts or delivers his impactful dialogues. And like most stars in India do, he too has a die-hard fan who looks up to him with all his heart. That fan is Om Prakash Agarwal (Emraan Hashmi), a traffic cop in Bhopal. So it goes without saying that if his favourite star is coming to his town to shoot, he’s going to be first in line to meet him. But the plot thickens when Vijay urgently requires a driving license so that his shoot can go on smoothly. Being a star he expects special treatment and wants to skip the normal procedure that all the other citizens follow, simply because he has to leave for the US in a week. No matter how big of a fan he is, Om Prakash disagrees with his idol and strongly believes that he must follow the same process as everyone else. Here’s where the clash between the two begins and whether Vijay is able to bag his license or not is the centre of the film! Diana Penty plays Naina who is Vijay’s wife in the film and Nushrratt Bharuccha plays Om Prakash’s supportive better half as well but that’s all these two have to offer in this film.

Akshay Kumar, is known to do roles that are unconventional and talk about new and important issues. He has given some really good performances in the past like in Padman or take any of his action-comedy movies. He’s an absolute ace in them which is why the Janta always has such major expectations from him and even though he gives a decent performance in Selfiee and gets out a few good laughs, it’s still not one of his bests according to them. On the other hand, Emraan Hashmi is seen as a cop for the first time and add a family man/ avid fan on top of that and he seems to deliver that seamlessly for the Janta. Story wise, the Janta felt like the film felt dragged and slow in some parts but was also a complete family entertainer where you can just not think about anything and fall for all the jokes and scenes. It clearly was a film that brought out mixed reviews from the audience.
