Critic Reviews for Selection Day Season 1

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (1)

It suffers from a series of tropes.

Apr 3, 2019 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

A middling show that becomes worth your time all the way, if not for the treatment of the substance, certainly for its physical fleshing out by a solid supporting cast.

Jul 20, 2020 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

This conflict, a compelling mix of testosterone, pheromones and other hormones that drive teenage angst, got short shrift in the first part of the series. The second part doesn't do justice to it either.

Aug 19, 2019 | Full Review…

While Selection Day had all the tropes of [Arvind] Adiga's writing -- crazy characters, slow pace, and confusing storylines -- the TV adaptation feels crispier in comparison.

Jul 10, 2019 | Full Review…

Stream it, especially because there's such a clear good guy-bad guy dynamic going.

Jan 1, 2019 | Full Review…

The show is unable to build any momentum or craft a powerful narrative from the various story blocks at its disposal.

Dec 28, 2018 | Full Review…

It's cultural appropriation at best, and at worst a patronising insult.

Audience Reviews for Selection Day: Season 1

  • May 24, 2019
    Selection Day is a coming of age sports drama suspense series made for Netflix India. The plot revolves around two brothers and their father's passion towards making them the next superstar of Cricket. The father's obsession borders to mania and gives the vibes that he may do anything to achieve his dreams. To fulfill their ambition they move to Mumbai and covet for a position in the Mumbai under 19 Team. To add spice to the mix, the god gets involved, they meet a rival with some disturbing emotions and one of the brothers does not even want to be a cricketer. I thought I have figured out the plot but I was way wrong, the ending surprised me in multiple levels. The series got superb casting and performances by both the young and old actors. It is another gem of a Netflix Original.

    Although its non-cricket parts are often scarcely believable, Selection Day is still an interesting piece of television from the maturing non-soap-opera-Indian-TV industry niche. The father-sons relationship at its heart makes it an engaging watch, with enjoyable themes like coming-of-age, family friction, tough love, and desire for self-actualisation.

    a mildly interesting story ended abruptly.

    one time watchable, waiting for second part
  • Dec 29, 2018
    I like how the show started off with lot to offer. But as the episodes progressed I wanted more and more of it, but it failed to do so. In S1 they should have had more episodes. It feels incomplete and a half cooked meal leaving the audience hungry. I like the god character as well. Mahesh Manjrekar has been good. Infact every character in this show has been spot on.

    Its an OK series. Fairly entertaining, Im a Cricket buff so was always clicking the "next episode" button but it really depends on your personal preference. Its worth a watch.
