“The narrative (derived from the late Sachy’s screenplay) is tweaked and stretched to make space for an actor in search of a hit. But nothing clicks… Selfiee may try your patience, but it does not overly offend one’s sensibilities the way his other films tend to.”

“Reworks its source material to mount a defence of the Hindi film industry, which has been subjected to merciless criticism in recent years.”

Selfiee is not as good as its source material… but it is immensely superior to the mediocrity, loudness and propaganda that dominate Akshay’s filmography.”

“Malayalam cinema isn’t the same as Telugu or Tamil, but Bollywood’s blanket approach fails to see the distinction.”

Selfiee isn’t completely impressive, and yet it’s Kumar’s best in a long time. While leaving the theatre, I was almost satisfied. Is this Stockholm Syndrome a new phase of relationship between Bollywood films and us? I’ve no idea, and I can’t even say ‘get your popcorn ready’ because, in this duel, we’re both participants and audiences.”
