Baby is an upcoming Indian espionage action thriller film directed by Neeraj Pandey. The film stars Akshay Kumar, Rana Daggubati, Anupam Kher, Danny Denzongpa, Taapsee Pannu, Mikaal Zulfiqar and Madhurima Tuli. The film is scheduled for a January 23, 2015 release.
A group of particular officers is given a five year mission termed ‘BABY’. They experience clandestine operations to chase down and slaughter terrorists. One such thrill seeker officer is Ajay (Akshay Kumar). The motion picture is a story of their last mission in this 5 year plan. Nearby Ajay are different officers played by Rana Daggubati and Tapsee Pannu who go along with him on his operations. The leader of this insights is Feroze (Danny Denzongpa) and it is he who portrays the whole mission.
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.
Akshay Kumar fits the role with ease. He has always been the quintessential action hero and in this too he excels. Although I do feel, the content overpowers this film and so it’s not Akshay’s best. Danny Denzongpa is seen after Bang Bang and he gives a power packed performance here as well. The casting being perfect, he holds his character extremely well.
Anupam Kher enters in the second half and is quite funny with his quirky character as Shuklaji. Tapsee Pannu impresses with her action scene and shows her potential to star in films which have a heroine pulling off some action and kicking ass. Rana Daggubati is truly like hulk in the film. He does not get a chance to talk much but then again his personality speaks volumes for his role.
What are the main elements for an action thriller? A gripping story, great actors and action sequences that give you chills. Summed up all ans that is what Baby is. Content is king here and the director’s talent of building it up is what marvels in this film. The cinematography is excellent and the first scene itself from Istanbul is praiseworthy. Pandey knows how to call spade a spade and so the film is bold in spite of dealing with issues of India and Pakistan.
After a long time Baby is a film which shows you the other side of India who is not always a peace loving nation. The background score drives the film perfectly as it rises the tempo when a nail-biting chase is on. There is a lot of familiarity with all Neeraj Pandey films and even though his style of story telling is quite similar, it works for the content at hand.
Baby is a must-watch film with rich content. This action thriller will woo you if you are a fan of watching raw action where blood spills and guns are trotted. An honest work that dares to bare terrorism and its religious connection.
