Talking about the prime highlights of Neeraj Pandey's Baby, the director is successful in portraying the issue of terrorism in the best way possible with full entertainment and thrill. Although, there are several pre-conceived notions regarding terrorism but Neeraj Pandey's Baby dealt with it with utmost sensitivity.

All in all, like how a baby child is thrilled to see something new, Akshay Kumar's Baby will also leave you amazed and thrilled for solid reasons. A must watch...

Rarely you come across an Indian movie that doesn't hit a single false note. BABY is one such film. Writer-Director Neeraj Pandey has made a brilliant film that is not only technically at par with the best in the world, but it's also a dispassionate non-judgmental take on terrorism that's completely devoid of jingoism and is extremely gripping.

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!


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.

Quite. This Baby's day out is deadly good fun.

This is a movie that goes straight for the gut with no fancy frills or unnecessary accessories. 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.

Two minor complaints, though — wish they had gone easy on the background score and a glaring loophole that involves a laptop belonging to a terrorist. But everything said and done, this movie is a must watch.

Baby is a griping watch indeed thanks to the conspiracies, espionage, and counter-espionage portrayed rather intelligently. It has the perfect blend of drama and intrigue, garnished with a hint of situational comedy and convincing action.

Akshay leads from the front even if the cast boasts the presence of powerful performers-the likes of Kay Kay Menon,Danny Denzongpa and Anupam Kher.

By infusing humour, drama and action into a tense plot, director Neeraj Pandey dishes out a sumptuous cinematic treat that has both powerful performances and an engaging story. Don’t miss this one!
