Samantha steals the show with yet another exceptional performance!
Savitri (played by Lakshmi) is a widow and lives with her daughter-in-law and grandchildren. She showers affection on everyone, however, it is seen negatively. When it leads to a problem with her daughter-in-law, Savtri is dejected. She wishes to get young.
God (played by Jagapathy Babu) grants a wish and there enters Swathi (played by Samantha) in the frame. What will happen to Savitri? Will she get to fulfil her wishes?
Director Nandini Reddy made a mark with Ala Modalaindi, however, struggled to keep her form after the film. Oh Baby follows the graph of the previous movies of Nandini Reddy. The fun and vibrant first half followed by a dramatic emotional turn in the second half with a neatly placed and well-rounded punch in the end
With Oh Baby, we can easily say that she has bounced back quite comfortably. The first half of Oh Baby is a laughter riot, especially after Samantha's entry. Nandini Reddy handles comedy well and it is seen in her previous films as well.
The film's pace slows down in the second half, The editing could have been better.
Also, the film is highly predictable and doesn't have any twists and turns to keep us hooked to the story when the pace slows down.
Samantha and Nandini Reddy's Oh Baby is worth the hype for the most part. Except for the lengthy second half, the film keeps you entertained. On a whole Oh Baby is a heart warming movie, definitely a good weekend watch for movie lovers, and fans of Samantha in particular.
