Directed by Neeraj Pandey, the movie Baby features Akshay Kumar, Anupam Kher, Taapsee Pannu, Rana Daggubati, Danny Denzongpa, Rasheed Naz, Kay Kay Menon and Sushant Singh among others.
Neeraj Pandey's last films A Wednesday and Special 26 received all round appraisal and so this film Baby involved huge expectations from the director. And guess what, Neeraj Pandey along with the entire Baby team has stood firm to all the expectations.
To talk about the plot of Baby, Akshay Kumar (Ajay Singh) is the most trusted Counter Intelligence agent of an undercover unit named as 'Baby' which is headed by Danny Denzongpa (Feroze Ali Khan). While, India remains under multiple terror threats, members of 'Baby' stand strong against the wrong doers.
Rasheed Naz (Maulana Mohammed Rahman) who is the main antagonist in the movie Baby remains the mastermind of the terror attacks and he is expert in brain-washing young people towards terrorism. While, Rasheed Naz appears to be a super powerful terrorist, Akshay Kumar along with his 'Baby' team including Rana Daggubati (Jai Singh Rathore), Taapsee Pannu (Priya Suryavanshi), Anupam Kher (Om Prakash Shukla) and others thrive to eradicate terrorism once and for all.
Whether Akshay Kumar along with his 'Baby' team is able to stand strong against the mighty evils or terrorism wins the battle is the plot of Baby.
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, Neeraj Pandey's Baby dealt with it with utmost sensitivity.
While, Akshay Kumar is undoubtedly one of the best action heroes of Bollywood, Baby has pushed the limit of the actor as Akki is seen performing some death-defying stunts which will keep your eyes wide open. There is hardly any moment in the two and half hour long movie (apart from interval) when you will feel like leaving your seat or turning your attention towards anything else other than the big screen.
On the performance front, Neeraj Pandey has brought out the best from all his actors. While, veteran actors like Akshay Kumar, Anupam Kher, Kay Kay Menon and Danny Denzongpa do not need any review for their acting, other actors of Baby also did full justice to their roles. Even Taapsee Pannu who is new in Bollywood also is impressive with some good action scenes.
Bollywood film-making has developed big time in the recent past and the exclusion of unwanted songs, unrealistic action stunts and melodrama in Baby proves the same.
There is a scene where the antagonist ridicules India's supposed failure to tackle terrorism and in another scene Akshay Kumar points out the supposed fault in India's approach to deal with the same. Thus, the movie Baby not only is a must watch for the commoners, it can be a worthy watch for the Modi government as well.
