Samantha Akkineni starring Oh Baby released today in theatres worldwide. Oh Baby is a female-centric official remake of Korean drama Miss Granny. Directed by Nandini Reddy, Naga Shaurya played a very crucial role in the movie. Veteran Actress Lakshmi, Rajendra Prasad, Rao Ramesh also played important roles in this movie. Here is the review of the movie.
Story: Baby ( Lakshmi ) is an adamant old lady who irritates every one in her family. Baby ( Lakshmi )is forced to leave home due to ill-health of her daughter-in-law. Mysteriously, Baby turns physically young and comes back as New Baby ( Samantha ) who is an energetic girl. Baby’s family think she ran away from the home, but Samantha joins them as a tenant of Chanti ( RP ). Rest of the story is about what she does following her family closely
Review: Director Nandini Reddy did a wonderful job in remaking the Korean drama with our Telugu nativity. Especially after the transformation from Old to Young, Samantha body language is exceptionally good in impersonating the old character. Samantha single-handedly took care of lifting the first half with her comedy timing. But the first half ends with an average note.
Coming to the second half, Movie switches from Comedy to Sentimental. Again Samantha shows why she is the Queen of acting in Tollywood. She rocked in every emotional scene. Due to the lack of proper music in the movie, Music Band sequence didn't work out well. Mickey J Meyer disappointed this time with his music expect Changu Bhala. Slow pacing second half with boring moments, not a good note for the movie. But the movie ends with a nice feeling.
Performances: As mentioned above Oh Baby is a one-woman show. Samantha was exceptionally good in portraying the character. In limited screen presence, Naga Shaurya did his job. Yesteryear actress Lakshmi was amazing in the movie, especially in emotional scenes. Rajendra Prasad, Rao Ramesh once again showed their brilliant acting skills.
On the whole Oh Baby is a fun and emotional filled family weekend movie. Ignoring the slow pace in the second half, poor songs and a few artificial sentiment scenes, it is a good movie that worth a watch in theatres.
