Oru Vadakkan Selfie, directed by G Prajith and written by Vineeth Sreenivasan was one of the hits of Nivin Pauly. He played an aimless youngster in the film. The film also touched upon online fraudsters who mislead people. The film is a comedy entertainer along with a parallel track on romance and thriller. Nivin played Umesh in the film and Vineeth says that the character was picked from Vineeth's brother Dhyan's mannerisms. Vineeth had observed how Dhyan presented certain subjects and delivered dialogues. He had imbibed some of those traits in Umesh's personality. Vineeth is also optimistic that Dhyan's debut directorial LAD would be a big success, as Dhyan himself had written and directed it.
