When you want to make a film on an ongoing trend but don’t have a proper story yet have a producer, cast and comedians, perhaps a film like Selfie Raja is a resultant.
Our hero is a selfie maniac, on top of it has a loose tongue but unfortunately the story doesn’t evolve out of these potential elements. Instead few Jabardasth comedians, some low brow slap-stick comedy and a couple of spoofs is what Selfie Raja is made up of. Ok… keeping the quality of comedy aside, Selfie Raja (supposedly a comedy film) has a hilarious episode nowhere in the film.
The first half is a decent watch with a worthy twist in the tale. However, the director couldn’t use this point to the best. Instead, the second half starts to bother you with the insipid comedy and lackadaisical narration. On top of it, the songs add to the tragedy. However few gags here and there cover up the setbacks and the film remains to be a time pass film.
The pathetic part is that an all-rounder entertainer like Allari Naresh offers nothing special in this film.
