Baby Review: BABY is a Neeraj Pandey Film, the director of A Wednesday! and Special 26. The trailer and teasers of this movie have made it evident that this is a patriotic film. Excellent, Akshay Kumar returns to the action genre. He had done many action films towards the beginning of his career but later moved on to do comic movies like Hera Pheri, Gararm Masala etc. But with movies like Holiday and Baby he makes a very strong come back to the action thriller genre. Strong character performance by Danny. Very good cameos by Anupam Kher, Sushant Singh and Kay Kay Menon. All of them delivered exactly what the doctor order. Watch out for the lady actor who plays the part of female undercover agent. Excellent. Filmed at multiple locations in India and a short portion in Istanbul and a part in Saudi Arab.
There are no songs. There is a just a one liner nothing more than that. Background score is very good and makes Baby fast paced and interesting. Plot and Story is so good. Baby is a special agent movie. Those who give a damn. Live and Die for their country. While the idea is not entirely new but the treatment and presentation is lively. Script, execution and direction, everything is excellent. Neeraj Pandey takes his work to the next level. Baby is definitely better than A Wednesday and Special 26. Narration is fast paced, specially the post interval portion is super. Some sequences are really nail biting and leave the audience on the edge of their seat.
It is very difficult to find faults with such a movie that serves it purpose so well. Only thing that comes to mind is that few sequences are not very convincing and certain pre interval portions could have been better. This movie is about people who want to save country from terrorism. It delivers with story, action, strong performance of actors, background score and last but not least simple and yet awesome direction. The movie has its flaws and who cares when you see the effort they put in making this movie and performance of actors they put to deliver to great product. So folks, Baby is only for people who wants to watch no non-sense action thriller and masala loving people can keep away. All the best to makers of Baby.
