Baby Hindi Movie Review




Ratings:3/5 Review By:  Rajeev Masand Site:CNN IBN
Borrowing its structure from Zero Dark Thirty, its climax from Argo, its intention from Nikhil Advani’s D-Day, and its occasionally jingoistic tone from your standard Bollywood B-movie, Baby, directed by Neeraj Pandey, is a khichdi of influences, and an uneven film as a result.I’m going with three out of five for Baby. Enjoy it for the brisk action thriller that it is, and try not to think about how much better it could’ve been.

 Business could’ve been far better had the film taken a flying start but its ordinary initial on the one hand and absence of ingredients like romance, music, emotions and comedy on the other will ultimately restrict its business. Even though collections are bound to pick up due to positive word of mouth and in spite of the benefit of the Republic Day national holiday, it would not prove to be an earning proposition in the final tally as the price is high.

Watched Baby. O-U-T-S-T-A-N-D-I-N-G. Neeraj Pandey proves his prowess yet again. Brilliant cinema!Baby is Akshay's best work. Rana Daggubati, Anupam Kher, Danny, Taapsee, Kay Kay, Mikaal Zulfiqar, Rasheed Naz - each actor is first-rate. Baby has engaging 1st half and a superb 2nd. The last 40 minutes are nail-biting with an edge of the seat finale. You just can't miss it.

Neeraj Pandey gives a far more palatable tale and heroic tale of a few good men and one women sacrificing their life for the country which translates into solid entertainment

The first half of Baby makes you feel you are Rakesh.But when you make it till the film ends, you will feel happy that you sat through the torture in the first half. The second-half, especially the climax is where the film has scored well and keeps you on the edge of your seat. Pandey’s Baby, one must say, wouldn’t have been as interesting without the lead troika. Go watch Baby for Akki-Kher-Danny troika

Baby, written and directed by Neeraj Pandey, is a tricky film in more ways than one. It might have been hailed as just another innocuous, smartly-packaged, competently shot espionage thriller if only the politics at its heart not been so dangerously dodgy. The point that Baby seems to make is that it isn't just trained killing machines, but also the nation as a whole, that can, and should, do 'anything', collateral damage be damned.

Ratings:4/5 Review By:  Srijana Mitra Das Site:Times Of India (TOI)
Balancing characters, conspiracies and cities, director Neeraj Pandey admirably keeps Baby rich, yet tight, researched, non-sentimental and steely-eyed. Neeraj's craft has grown - he's taken trademark touches from films like Special 26 and A Wednesday, setting them here on a grand scale, with a breath-taking climax. The cinematography - desert dunes in nothing but shaded moonlight - is elegant while dialogues are robust. One of Baby's crew tells Ajay, "Tension kya lena? Ulta, aapke rehte, mazaa aata hai."Quite. This Baby's day out is deadly good fun.

‘Baby’ is a perfect vehicle for the times we live in: it gives us a home-spun hero who allows himself to be hurt but is invincible, and an enemy who is the easiest to demonise. The film is as simplistic as its title – Us vs Them, and no prizes for guessing who will win. In a messy world, where each action can have an equal and opposite reaction, what is the point of complexity?

On the whole, BABY is one of the finest films ever made in the history of Indian cinema. Not only because of its excellent cinematic credentials but also because of the balanced 'Thought' behind the film. Neeraj Pandey once again proves that he's a genius. This time he proves, it's possible to better Perfection. We say, hey baby, don't think, just go for BABY. Cinema at its very best!

Ratings:4/5 Review By:  Shubha Shetty Saha Site:Mid Day
The film works on many levels; effective lines, some laced with dead-pan humour (written by Neeraj Pandey), the break-neck pace, near-perfect casting and minimal melodrama. Akshay Kumar scores with his understated performance and a body language that's a perfect fit for an 'emotionless' cop with a single minded focus. Two minor complaints. Wish they had gone easy on the background score. Also, a glaring loophole involving a laptop belonging to a terrorist. Please watch this movie.

It’s an out an out Neeraj Pandey film. Baby hands down comes out as of the best films when it comes to mixing a subject like terrorism. It is like an Indian version of Body Of Lies.Baby is a definite watch for anyone who likes action thrillers. With an edge of the seat course of story, it is a treat with its dialogues too.

  18. BABY:
    Not so-smart but well-made! [3/5]

    An anti-nationalist tries to intimidate our hero by making a declaration like, “Beware! We write MUSLIM as our religion in the column marked for so in all government forms”; and our hero-an undercover agent gives him an equal back, “We are more submissive towards our nation as we write INDIAN in the said column”. I am not sure how many times the officer in question would have faced rejection of his forms at the respective offices and counters but for the screen, it does create an impact; an impact more Bollywood-ish but substantial for a nationalistic film made for entertainment.

    Writer-director Neeraj Pandey has proved himself earlier with his similar approach in A WEDNESDAY & in SPECIAL CHABBIS (26). His latest BABY is a gripping but easy espionage-thriller filled with fast-paced action, impossible-looking anti-terrorist missions, men under cover, race against time situations, mellowness in melodrama and more notably Akshay Kumar playing his age. So, you might miss him hitting the dance floor on some vodka & short-skirt girl obsessed Yo Yo Honey Singh number but I enjoyed it more.

    Not many years passed when Bollywood has restrictions not to take ‘names’ while referring our neighboring country but now, we are liberated enough to come up with lines like, “+92 [country code of Pakistan] lagao, mujhe aazad karao”, a terrorist flounders in prison. Fondly christened for its short term, BABY is a 5-year trial program where 12 undercover agents are trained & unfastened to fight terrorism freely with a clause that Indian Government would never claim their identity as an Indian in worst case scenario. BABY- the film is the last mission of BABY-the program.

    Headed by Feroze Ali [Danny in an identical role of his ATS chief in Mani Shankar’s 16 DECEMBER], Ajay [Played by Akshay Kumar] & his team [schemer Anupam Kher, muscle-man Rana Daggubati and the trained martial art expert in salwar-suit Taapsee Pannu] are chasing down the terrorist movements in various parts of India to terminate their lethal plots. Their prime targets are Bilal Khan [Kay Kay Menon in a shorter role] who wants proper attention & treatment at par Kasab would get, and Maulana- a Pakistan based religious leader-orator & mastermind modeled on Hafiz Muhammad Saeed and believably played by the Pakistani actor Rasheed Naz.

    BABY acts immature as a juvenile when it comes to be a smart thriller. It never actually shocks you with a more feasible approach than being a tough nut-to-crack thriller but the pace, no non-sense songs, believable acting performances, brilliantly shot sequences and an underlay deadpan humor throughout. Though it is one such film that believes a mustache can make a hero look more real, BABY tries a lot to break the norms Bollywood is known to fall for. So no more ‘on-time’ wire-cuts while defusing a bomb! No more melodramatic cries over personal/professional losses! And more importantly, no breathing space for item numbers [one comes at the end-credits, you can ignore that easily].

    As the final verdict, Neeraj Pandey’s BABY has his trademark patriotic touch with absolute mass appeal but lacks the punch in emotions he showed in ‘A WEDNESDAY’ and what’s also a miss is the smartness and the unquestionable precision in the screenplay as his SPECIAL CHABBIS (26) excelled in. Still, it’s a well-made thriller that doesn’t lose its steam despite being 2 hour 40 min long…and that says a lot! [3/5]

  33. Baby is unarguably one of the finest, riveting, taut, espionage thrillers to have hit Indian screens which not only provides edge of the seat excitement but also maintains that feeling of adrenaline rush all through its run time which is the pre requisite of any good thriller. Baby keeps you glued to your seats with its thriller quotient and is a must watch. For my detailed review, please visit................http://rohitmoviereview.blogspot.in/

  35. Bollywood Chaska...January 25, 2015 at 1:29 AM

    Baby is a complete action pack thriller that boasts the uniqueness of Neeraj Pandey once again as a director...The story is loosely based on Nikhil Advani's D day..Each and every character in this movie has been portrayed quite neatly and the actors here in this movie has brilliantly performed those characters....... the second half of the movie was comparatively better than the first half though the climax was Nt at all satisfying.The way film was presented from the beginning it s very natural that audiences expectation became higher and believe me the ending of the movie could been much much better......My Rating 2.5/5.....

  37. Too Long and Unnecessary Time Wasting scenes , There isn't any real thrill in the movie , except some in climax ,, too long too boring , they seemed just waiting for climax to do something . almost an hour they only shows roads and hero running behind , and best thing he wont reach :) , very less dialogs , and that too much time repeated , wont be even a single page for dialogs , akshay's acting !!! still expression which salman gives in every movie !!! or just running !!

    Pretty BAD Script Examples
    - Hero just walk out handing over Pakistani Wanted Terriost to Gawde to make a call!!!!! , we all knew he will explode so hero too knew :) and keeping himself safe he make a call .(that was pretty much lazy scene ,and too old ).
    - They goes to nepal to bring ABDUL HAQ but why was akshay there!!!!!!? just following without doing anything!!!!
    - What more lazy script can be that They go for bilal and get rehman!!!!!!
    - Without any song (5 songs make 30 mins more in movie) , still movie is 160 mins long!! how it is fast paced where story is only about 30-40 mins.

    Ratings That Much Higher From People : may be they are satisfied by seeing pakistani terriosts get caught !

    When we have watched 16 December decade ago and A wednesday long time ago , we expected a brilliant emotional patriotic real action thriller , but here its nothing , no emotional , no action (almost nothing interesting) , no thrill(only few scenes in climax part) , nothing technically (almost nothing than decades old ) , nothing logical(we do not expects) . no suspense . No Stars Out Of 5. from me , a genuine viewer , who expected a good fast paced creative story (special 26) or great suspense thriller story( like A wednesday).

    3. Kanti suthar are you out of your mind...do u really know the taste of movie?.. how you have cited your comment above were just meaningless..a people like you have no faith for a good movie, a audience like you is happy with a movie where there is item songs, 5 to 8 songs, that same over goons of action move..common grow up, think for a new kind of movie, unique and realistic movie and show some respect to the actor and director who have really work hard and given their effort to make a good and valuable movie.. how can u say that 'Baby' is a too long with unnecessary scenes and without songs makes u feel bore and the most important thing is that you even didn't enjoy the thrill ..oh kid! grow up ..u know what 'u' are actually boring, u don't have much brain to realize and enjoy the thrill.. you want still those 'chikni chameli' , munni badnam song etc etc... in the movie..its may b because you didn't get the chance to perform ( better don't think about it...) as you have less brain and u are not so talented so next time you better try to understand the movie and you better brush your teeth and have a good taste of the right movie..good luck buddy!

    4. Oh really , I thought I compared BABY with 16 December and A Wednesday!!!! these movies have item songs!! great taste you have , and I am just saying my point of view about movie "BABY" that doesn't mean I liked all other movie except this. "BABY" is too long , and it is , as only a scene would be enough to bring ABDUL HAQ (sushant, having great role in 16 DECEMBER) but it took "BABY" more than half hour where akshay was chasing nothing and doing nothing but time pass!!!!!!, And there was similar time pass scenes as I pointed in my 1st comment. There was very less dialogue , and every dialogue was multiple times there may be cost cutting on dialogue writer , talented actors like kk menon , sushant were doing nothing in the movie , nor that pakistani villain was just sleeping :) we too :) ,don't remember if Rana has any dialogue, oh there was "me bhi yehi rukunga" !!!!! if you really liked "BABY" it's good for you ,keep it up watching these waste and others you mentioned , I didn't like "BABY", and that's what I am letting others know. Respect the director's hard work !!! why if I am not satisfied with their work? People like you telling you liked/loved the "must watch movie" , Am just saying I didn't like it also said why I didn't like.

  40. You will enjoy if you keep your expectations under control ( 2.8 /5) :
    After Wednesday , Neeraj Pandey has become favorite name in director's list for so many. His Special 26 was also a well made film & appreciated a lot. And now he is back with 'Baby' which is good watch if your expectations are under control.
    'Baby' is a story of a last secret mission of special team , which will only only function till 5 years & this is the last year & last mission. Which is mainly handled by Ajay ( Akshay) . Though this story looks interesting , first half is pretty predictable & full of mass dialogues & scenes And also very much flawed . And another problem is in first half , lot of time is wasted on just to establish characters . Also first half looks very flawed , when u see scenes like A Terrorist is escaped from Mumbai's Marine Drive in Broad Daylight & not a single vehicle is there on the road which is usually full of traffic. Also after accident Police Constables are so hurt that they Can't Even Lift A Gun , Where As A Terrorist In Same Car Can Shoot Them Even When His Hands Are Tied !
    But where as in second half , story takes a jump into an engaging thriller. Though that is inspired by Osama's assassination , film takes a different turn after a point. Climax is also quite nice & overall Second half is very nice.
    At acting part all actors performed really well & you can't imagine anybody other at their place. Special mention to Anupam Kher & Tapasi Pannu ! Both have very small roles . but made there presence felt .
    Neeraj Pandey's direction is also good . Problem in the story , that he don't have good story in first half . But stull he manages to engage the audiance.
    All & All , 'Baby' is enjoyable ,but strictly don't expect more than that !
    My Rating : 2.8/ 5 (Above average, but not good )

  42. With only two films to his pocket yet, Director Neeraj Pandey has made a mark for himself in the Bollywood. His debut venture ‘A Wednesday’ was an example of some outstanding piece of cinema. Even with ‘Special 26’, he did not disappoint the audiences.
    What’s difficult is to maintain the bars that you have set for yourself? Does Neeraj Pandey deliver his promises with ‘Baby’?

    A secret team, ‘Baby’, is formed after the attacks of 26/11 to curb the terrorist activities in India. Headed by Firoz Ali Khan (Danny Denzongpa), Baby had twelve officers whose number has now been reduced to only four, Ajay Singh Rajput (Akshay Kumar), Priya Suryavanshi (Taapsee Pannu), Om Prakash Shukla (Anupam Kher) and Jai Singh Rathore (Rana Daggubati). The film sets out the story of last mission of this team.

    Baby starts on a high note. Five minutes into the film and Neeraj Pandey has your complete attention. That’s commendable! Baby’s screenplay is equally good supported by some brilliant dialogues. But what disappointed me was the length of the film. The director loses his grip somewhere in the mid portions, especially post interval. Nevertheless, Baby picks up in the last 30 minutes and grabs your attention back.

    The film truly belongs to Akshay Kumar, easily one of his best performances in recent years. This type of cinema clearly suits him. Danny Denzongpa is excellent. Anupam Kher, yet again, is terrific. Taapsee Pannu and Rana Daggubati are decent. Kay Kay Menon has not much role to play.

    Not as good as his previous ventures, Neeraj Pandey’s Baby still fits to be a decent watch this week. Believe me, you certainly would not want to miss Akshay Kumar’s performance in this one.

    Rating- 3/5

  43. Baby is a classic movie, I think the best movie made in India made in this genre ever. And director Neeraj Pandey is fast becoming a cult film maker what with a track record of A Wednesday, Special 26 and now Baby, Exemplary!
    And Akshay Kumar is fast becoming the most versatile actor ever..what with him juggling between so many genres and so many different roles, and doing them well.
    Roll on the TAX-FREE status please, this is my humble request to the Government of India , so all Indians can see this spectacular and patriotic movie. More that the Akshay Kumar, the hero of the movie and his team, it is the Muslim characters in the movie who help in the fight against terrorism. Danny who plays Firoz is Muslim, the teenage boy who exposes the plan and Ashfaq the Indian agent in Al Dera are all Muslim and their are shown a heroic.All this is so motivating and moving and patriotic. Bravo Baby...

  47. Baby is Bollywood's most grown-up action drama yet. Its scale is lavish, zipping between India, Nepal, Turkey and the Middle East, and its performances excellent. Akshay Kumar is terrific as Ajay whose core of steel you can almost feel. Akshay presents top-rung action - you practically hear opponents' bones breaking under his stabbing kicks. But you hear Ajay's mind ticking too as he foils plots, plans hustles and thinks of excuses before his wife Anjali (Madhurima Tuli). Akshay is at his best, deadly serious in combat, wryly engaging with straight-faced humour, pleasantly asking a suspect, "Kharonch kyun aayegi...?" before interrogation.
