Why is ‘PM Selfie Waali’ a Lame show?
This is something new that ALTBalaji has come up with, but it isn’t excellent or praiseworthy. The genre is nice, but this seemed entirely unrelatable and impractical to me. There is no shortage of the political comedy in India but yeah there are a handful of movies with the same genre and gives pretty good thoughts about the future of politics in a comical way. Though this is what the true face of Indian Politics is which no one would like to revive as it doesn’t do good for the country and neither has done so far. An impractical approach the genre of political comedy.
Why is ‘PM Selfie Waali’ LIL fine?
A nice concept though as I mentioned it’s a new addition to ALTBalajis’ concept but could have been far better. The genre is nice as political comedies are very much in vogue as GIF’s, Memes and jokes are dripping on the social media screens, so one more piece to add for the lovers of the same. Good act by the cast and Nityaami being the lead does really good.
