Mathi Maran’s underwhelming ‘Selfie’, has GV Prakash as a college student who stumbles on a “seats for money” racket.

Spoilers ahead…

The writer-director keeps jumping from one character to another very quickly. So they either come off as very generic or very underdeveloped.

Selfie has been written and directed by Mathi Maran. But first let’s talk about the leading man, GV Prakash and the unique niche he’s carved for himself on screen.

On screen, he often plays a kind of young, amoral character. In the sense that if you want to cast someone as a man without major principles, or a misogynist, or a man who lives by his own rules, you’d generally go to GV Prakash. He owns that zone now, and yet, his face softens these characters. He looks innocent, almost like a boy, and yet there’s a ruffian look that says: This is not a guy you want to trust. And this good/bad combination is a good thing. It’s time our leading men started playing characters who exist on the fence between 100% good and 100% evil.
