Monika Rawal Kukreja | Hindustan Times: n/a ⇨ 6/10
In a nutshell, Selfiee ticks most of the boxes that Hindi film audiences look for. So, if you are fine with Akshay Kumar continuing to do Hindi remakes of films from the South, you would definitely enjoy Selfiee ... Full Review

Dhaval Roy | Times of India: 3.5/5 ⇨ 7/10
Selfiee is an easy-breezy watch, with some good performances and several laugh-out-loud moments. If you're looking for a rib-tickling comedy over the weekend, this one could be a good pick ... Full Review

News18: 3/5 ⇨ 6/10
An Enjoyable But Overtly Dramatic Film ... Full Review

Prathyush Parasuraman | Film Companion: n/a ⇨ 4/10
A film like Selfiee needs to be a tender dance of humour and heavyweight feelings. What it needs most, to achieve this balance, is maturity. Yet where to find this in a film that wilfully looks at a text and junks its meaning? ... Full Review

Rahul Desai | Film Companion: n/a ⇨ 4/10
Akshay Kumar’s Best Movie in Years, But It’s Still Not Good. The execution of these scenes in the second half lacks self-awareness and humour, turning Selfiee into a story that’s seldom in on its own joke ... Full Review

Komal Nahta | Film Information: n/a ⇨ 8/10
Selfiee is a very entertaining fare. Raaj Mehta’s direction is superb. He has got the core of the subject correctly. His shot compositions and narrative style are very good ... Full Review

Shubra Gupta | The Indian Express: 2.5/5 ⇨ 5/10
This film has an interesting premise but it is never allowed to overshadow its larger-than-life hero Akshay Kumar himself ... Full Review

Shilajit Mitra | The New Indian Express: 3/5 ⇨ 6/10
The coherent storyline and perfect beats of Selfiee owe it to the Malayalam original Driving Licence (2019). But, while the Prithviraj Sukumaran starrer was more solemn, Selfiee plays to Kumar’s image, sometimes a bit too much ... Full Review

Saibal Chatterjee | NDTV: 2/5 ⇨ 4/10
They are after all in an Akshay Kumar movie, akin to a two-and-a-half-hour selfie dedicated to a self-obsessed star. Unless you are a fan, it would be best to give Selfiee a miss ... Full Review

Bollywood Hungama: 3/5 ⇨ 6/10
SELFIEE works due to the plot, direction, dialogues and face-off between Akshay Kumar and Emraan Hashmi ... Full Review

Telangana Today: n/a ⇨ 3/10
If ever there is a living example of how a brilliant story idea can suffer at the compromises or demands of commerce, it is this grotesque translation of the extremely well-made Malayalam original ... Full Review

Umesh Punwani | Koimoi: 2/5 ⇨ 4/10
Selfiee could be true to the original but that’s also somewhere its weak point. The film shines when it doesn’t ‘try’ to copy and that’s why this needed a cosmetical makeover from not only outside but inside as well ... Full Review

Anna MM Vetticad | FirstPost: 2.25/5 ⇨ 6/10
Selfiee is not as good as its source material, Driving Licence starring Prithviraj Sukumaran, but it is immensely superior to the mediocrity, loudness and propaganda that dominate Akshay’s filmography ... Full Review

India Today: 3/5 ⇨ 6/10
A good remake that’s genuinely fun. The fact that Selfiee has taken the good parts from Driving Licence and given it a touch of its own is what makes this remake a good watch as well ... Full Review

Anuj Kumar | The Hindu: n/a ⇨ 7/10
A captivating script drives this thrilling Akshay Kumar-starrer. Akshay Kumar channels the swag of the superstar and imbues it with his inherent simplicity to make his character, Vijay Kumar, absolutely relatable ... Full Review

Sukanya Verma | Rediff: 2.5/5 ⇨ 5/10
Malayalam cinema isn't the same as Telugu or Tamil, but Bollywood's blanket approach fails to see the distinction in Selfiee ... Full Review

DNAIndia: 2.5/5 ⇨ 5/10
A stale 90s’ comedy disguised as modern masala flick, rests solely on the charm of its leads and is let down by a weak script ... Full Review

Uday Bhatia | Live Mint: n/a ⇨ 5/10
Star vs fan film is unwilling to show its teeth. Emraan Hashmi plays an aggrieved fan who takes on Akshay Kumar's megastar in this bland, underwhelming remake ... Full Review

Nandini Ramnath | Scroll: n/a ⇨ 5/10
The storm in a teacup unfolds through slow-motion sequences that lengthen the runtime to 143 minutes and a deafening background score that adds to the general feeling of overkill. The movie is most attentive when attending to Vijay’s predicament ... Full Review

Devesh Sharma | Filmfare: 3.5/5 ⇨ 7/10
Akshay Kumar clearly had a ball playing a sanitised version of himself. He has managed to convey the vulnerability of a superstar, and has given a believable performance as an idol who gets a shock to his system but comes back stronger because of it ... Full Review

Mike McCahill | The Guardian: 3/5 ⇨ 6/10
Director Raj Mehta’s professionally packaged comedy hits all the bright, wacky notes, just don’t expect anything more than sheer daftness ... Full Review

MenXP: 70% ⇨ 7/10
Selfiee is a comedy-drama and the humour in this film is ‘just perfect’. Rishabh Sharma has written the film and he has done an amazing job at integrating subtle jokes which patch well with situations ... Full Review

India TV: 2/5 ⇨ 4/10
Akshay Kumar-Emraan Hashmi's dull performances make it unbearable to watch. The storyline is very simple and disastrous. Selfiee features forceful jokes, cheap humour, and repetitive satire. While for some parts, the comedy worked but soon you start to get bored ... Full Review

The Week: 2.5/5 ⇨ 5/10
Selfiee may not be a disappointment for Bollywood fans who haven’t watched the original. It is a decent entertainer, but too shallow ... Full Review

The Wire: n/a ⇨ 6/10
The Star and the Fan and a Film That Works Because of the Latter. The movie isn’t completely impressive, and yet it’s Akshay Kumar’s best in a long time. Maybe because Bollywood movies – and Kumar in particular – have spawned so much disappointment in recent years, ‘not bad’ has begun to resemble ‘good’ ... Full Review

Shomini Sen | WIONews: n/a ⇨ 5.5/10
Selfiee is not as bad as Kumar's other recent films. Kumar along with Hasmi and actor Mahesh Thakur deliver an earnest performance that somewhat salvages a very poor script but the writing never fully utilises the potential of a good story, thereby making it look like a half-hearted attempt ... Full Review

PinkVilla: 3/5 ⇨ 6/10
Selfiee is a one time watch that has entertaining elements in the first half with drama taking over in the second hour of the film. Watch it to get the shades of the witty Akshay Kumar side by side a sincere Emraan Hashmi ... Full Review

News9 Live: n/a ⇨ 6/10
The film has its high moments, but meets with a fair share of speed bumps, making it more of a one-time-watch. Let’s just say, if the overall film was a car and the script its engine, then the car starts off as promising but certainly breaks down several times before reaching its end destination ... Full Review

Free Press Journal: n/a ⇨ 8/10
An out and out entertaining film. What’s more is that Raj has successfully managed to hold the cinema lovers with all the human emotions presented well. The fast-paced editing and the background music are added perks ... Full Review

Mirchi: 3.5/5 ⇨ 7/10
For those looking for a fun watch, ‘Selfiee’ is a lighthearted and enjoyable film with commendable performances and numerous moments of genuine laughter ... Full Review
