After the release of ‘Super Deluxe’ and ‘Majili’, we knew Samantha Akkineni had been with great excitement for the release of ‘Oh! Baby’ such that there had great hopes in Tollywood for the official remake of the Korean film ‘Miss Granny’. Let us see how this film has worked out on screens!
Savitri (Lakshmi), 70 years old lady works so hard even in her old age by caring for her son and his wife, daughter, and son. However she seems to be a burden/trouble to the entire family because of her granny talks, Savitri gets frustrated and goes out of the house because of the misunderstanding with her daughter-in-law. Anyway, while she goes to watch her grandson’s music performance, she becomes 24 years old girl Swati (Lakshmi turns to Samantha) once she visits a photo studio guided by a mystery man. What happens next? Will Swathi turn to Savitri for the sake of her son and his family or will she enjoy the life by retaining her young look is all about the story of ‘Oh! Baby’!
Starting off with the clue of giving a scientific note (Rao Ramesh’s Physiotherapy lecturing scene) we will definitely have some instinct whether Lakshmi will be changing to Samantha through some sci-fi concepts or something which is just fantastic throughout the film with surprises in a desi way. Transforming Samantha with the attitude and body language of Lakshmi, the mood of the film is absolutely fun with so many colors, comedy and dialogues. However, the Art Direction and Costumes mark more appealing to the eyes, Director Nandini Reddy has turned the Korean version into a pakka funny Tollywood movie with the breezy music of Mickey J Meyer, colorful cinematography of Richard Prasad and editing of Junaid Siddique which is considered to be an achievement in this era of recreating foreign films.
Coming to the performance part, the first half holds 60% of Lakshmi’s performance typically showing off her best as usual as ‘Savitri’ which is then continued with the remaining part of Samantha till the climax. Proving herself with the performance, Samantha’s attempt in trying out a different genre, that too with her effort in trying out comedy and typical granny talks it had been so neatly presented on screens, which is admired to be an improvement in her acting career graph. Apart from them, as Savitri’s best friend Rajendra Prasad in the character of Chanti, as Savitri’s son Rao Ramesh, as a love interest of Swati Naga Shaurya, Urvashi as Sulochana (Jealousy relative), Teja Sajja as Savitri's grandson and many others have performed well by supporting the screenplay. Last but not least, the guest appearances of Jagapathi Babu and Naga Chaitanya had spiced up the film.
On the whole, ‘Oh! Baby’ is fun-filled and emotional dramas by making us understand the value of elders (especially old people).
‘Oh! Baby’ is all about giving a hint for giving enough love and care for elders with fun!
