iQlikMovies Rating: 3.25/5
An elderly woman Baby (Lakshmi) who is adamant in everything that she does is forced to leave her family in certain circumstances. Unexpectedly, she regains a youthful appearance and embarks on a quest for happiness to her own home as Baby (Samantha). What happens then? How did she gain a young appearance? What did she do after joining her family? Forms the story of the movie.
Samantha's amazing performance can be considered as one of the major highlights of the movie. Despite getting a challenging role, the actress has pulled it off with ease. She not only looked effortlessly beautiful but also has delivered a decent performance in the film. Senior actress Lakshmi gave her 100 percent in the movie.
Rajendra Prasad's comedy is definitely the highlight of the film. Being an experienced actor, Rajendra Prasad has simply lifted each and every scene in the film. Rao Ramesh's energetic performance also added more strength for the movie. Especially, his performance in the climax scene is heart-wrenching.
Naga Shourya's refreshing performance is an asset to the movie. Pragathi and Teja also made their presence felt. Jagapathi Babu and Adivi Sesh's cameos are too good.
Making remake movies is not an easy task but director Nandini Reddy has succeeded in justifying the story. Each and every scene of the movie has its own beauty and we can give the entire credit to director Nandini Reddy. Production values by Suresh Babu and Sunitha Tati are luxurious.
Music by Mickey J Meyer showcases the soul of the film and added more strength for the movie. Not only a couple of songs but also his background score especially in the second half is excellent.
Cinematography by Richard Prasad is wonderful. Each and every frame came out really well and his camera angles are top-notch Editing by Junaid Siddique is also clean.
The story is entirely based on a simple concept but is executed in a beautiful manner. The movie not only starts off an interesting note and the entire first half will revolve around the establishment of the story. The scenes between Samantha and Rajendra Prasad are very funny. The interval twist is quite interesting.
The second half will also have the same pace of narration but with a double dosage of entertainment. The movie runs in a comic way but everything changes in the climax and the movie which entertains the audience and makes them laugh will make them emotional in the end. Overall, 'Oh Baby' is definitely a worth watching movie.
Drags In Second Half
Final Verdict: Career-Best from Samantha. Watch it.
