Review of “License To Drive Crazy” for selfies

Review of “License To Drive Crazy” for selfies

The last time Akshay Kumar appeared on screen, he was a movie star encouraging a colleague who was fleeing justice to confess to his crime after accidentally running down a kind of fan.

He portrays a movie star in his most recent film as well, but this time he is the target of his fervent fan’s ire because of a driving licence.

Although the crisis in Selfiee is far smaller in scope than the one in An Action Hero, the media circus it sparks is very similar.

Om’s wife’s favourite, a lively but underused Nushrratt Bharuccha, and a faded, ageing actor (a droll Abhimanyu Singh) whose corny comedy track is forced connected into the main plot are the sources of this conflict for dumb reasons. Similar remarks can be made about the inept local politician (Meghna Malik), who is attempting to capitalise on Vijay Kumar’s celebrity while he is in her district.

If there are any truly funny moments in Selfiee, they involve Akshay and his jittery, flashy producer Akashdeep, whose girlfriend Sheeba played the Khiladi’s heroine in his third film, Mr Bond, which came out in 1992, the same year that two of the actors Akshay prances around in Selfiee — Adah Sharma and Mrunal Thakur — were born.
