Oru Vadakkan Selfie (Review)

‘Oru Vadakkan Selfie’ is not a Thaniyavarthanam or Sadhayam, and it never pretend to be another Interstellar as well. This is an entertaining and funny movie as advertised.

Good comedy movies derive their humor from fundamental truths, and this film masterfully captures moments from our lives, albeit with a touch of exaggeration that enhances our enjoyment. Meet Umesh, a carefree and irresponsible youth with dreams of working under Tamil filmmaker Gautham Menon and directing a film starring Ajith. His journey takes a humorous turn when his friends encourage him to make a short film, and the arrival of Daisy adds a twist to the tale.

Script Flow and Nostalgic Vibes

The script’s flow is reminiscent of classic comedies like Cheppukilukkana Changaathi, Siddhiq Lal’s In Hariharnagar, and Ramji Rao Speaking. The movie captures the essence of these timeless comedies, creating a delightful viewing experience. Movies created by talented friends often shine on screen, as seen in Thattathin Marayathu, Neram, and Oru Vadakkan Selfie. The chemistry among actors and the infusion of a charming Chennai flavor contribute to the films’ success.

Nivin Pauly’s Evolution and Aju Varghese’s Riotous Act

Nivin Pauly’s evolution from Malarvadi to Bangalore Days showcases his impressive learning curve and natural humor. Aju Varghese, once doubted for his roles, surprises with his riotous antics, especially in Vellimoonga and Oru Vadakkan Selfie, securing his place at the top. While the movie may have occasional drag moments, they serve as minor speed bumps. Audiences eagerly awaiting the next show won’t leave the theater disappointed.

Not Just Comedy

Vineeth Sreenivasan, a rising star in Malayalam cinema, delivers a compelling narrative with Oru Vadakkan Selfie. His writing, filled with witty dialogues and socially relevant messages, elevates the film’s impact. Look beyond the laughter; Oru Vadakkan Selfie offers more than just comedy. As you relax and watch it again, appreciate G. Prajith’s debut, a big hit in the world of filmmaking. In summary, Oru Vadakkan Selfie promises a blend of humor, nostalgia, and unexpected surprises, making it a must-watch for fans of Malayalam cinema.
