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!

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.

  1. 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 )

  2. kanti suthar is right ,he has given correct advice,he has freedom just like everybody to express & we should respect his views,brihju ronghang should learn manners how to talk to people ,because brihju ronghang has said brainless & childish first applies to him because we see the world as we are,so brihju should learn manners

  3. best movie 5/5 awesome .. every indian should watch this movie

  4. 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

  5. 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…

  6. We want TAX-FREE status for Baby…This movie deserves no less. Government of India please give this movie it due and issue the Tax Free certificate to this exemplary and patriotic movie.

  7. 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!
    hi…………….friend
    this is a very best movie ilke a movie
    the best actor a k

  8. good movie, but very much similar to force & holiday

  9. 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.
