My Thoughts
Oru Vadakkan Selfie looks at the new generation who is tech savvy and social media obsessed. It also humorously puts across their mindset, their confusions, frustrations, uncertainty, immaturity and all that.

Umesh (Nivin Pauly) hates studies and has 42 supple  papers to his credit. He has a wavering mind and lacks drive. Shaji (Aju Varghese) is equally confused and spends his time in a men’s garment showroom. He is a good friend of Umesh and sticks to him in thick and thin; both mutually and forcefully. Thannkaprasad (Neeraj Madhav) is a bus driver with only one goal in life – to marry a rick girl!

The screenplay flows with ease, story is different and dialogs are real. All the actors have done a great job by being natural which makes them believable. Aju’s comical timing and Neeraj’s dialog delivery is superb. Nivin shines with his subtlety and simple expressions. His casual mannerisms are commendable. Manjima Mohan as Daisy has played her part well. Vineeth Sreenivasan brings some interesting twists to the movie.

Music is by Shaan Rahman and I have to tell you that he has done a decent job. The famous Enne Thallendammaava song is well-placed in the movie, background blends with the situations and the choreography in Neelambalin is mesmerizing.

I loved the climax (Which I am not going to reveal). I am so happy for the director, writer, producer and everyone possible for breaking the cliché and doing only what must be done!

The movie has several laughable moments and dialogs. They will follow you even long after the movie is over. They also make you laugh over and over.

In short, Oru Vadakkan Selifie is different, enjoyable, laughable and also relevant.
Don’t miss it! Else, you might regret J
