Storyline

Savitri aka Baby (Lakshmi) is a 70-year-old lady who runs a college canteen along with her friend, Kanakaraj aka Chanti (Dr. Rajendra Prasad). Her son, Shekhar (Rao Ramesh) works as a lecturer of Gerontology in the same college. At home, she shares a close bond with her grandson, Rocky (Teja). When she was young, she aspired to become a singer but failed to do it because of her motherly responsibilities. She wants her grandson to become a good singer and achieve his goals. She is strict and rude to her daughter-in-law, Madhavi (Pragathi) and tries to correct everything that she does. This doesn't go well with Madhavi. One day, Madhavi gets a heart stroke and the doctors suggest Shekhar to keep Baby away from her to avoid stressful conditions. Even Madhavi and her daughter ask Shekhar to send Baby away from the house. Dejected by her fate, she decides to attend her grandson's first performance at an exhibition and move away from the family forever. There she meets an unusual man (Jagapathi Babu), who gives her a Ganesh idol. She magically transforms into her younger self, 24-year old Savitri (Samantha Akkineni). She discovers that the unusual man was God and he gave her a second chance to rewrite her life. She befriends her grandson and joins his team to fulfill her dream to be a singer. She meets Vikram (Naga Shourya), who offers a music contract to their team. He slowly falls for her and she starts to warm up to him too. But will Baby remain to be young forever? The story is about a mother's struggle and how she sacrifices her life to keep her kids happy.

You can understand why director Nandini Reddy felt doing a film like Oh! Baby could increase the risk of criticism. It's not an easy movie to remake, and there are a lot of things that could have gone wrong. To transform a cranky old woman into an attractive young lady while still being the cranky old at heart is no mean to task to pull off, and it can look unconvincing or even downright silly. But Nandini seems like a director fully in control and Samantha delivers arguably her best performance to date, and all we can say, is Oh! Baby. The first 20 minutes are probably the most critical, as it sets the tone for the entire film. We are introduced to a cranky, whining old lady Baby (Lakshmi) who constantly fights with her daughter-in-law and snaps at almost everbody around her even as her doting friend Chanti (Rajendra Prasad) stands by her trying to calm her down. Her son Nani (Rao Ramesh) is a professor and when her grandson shows a passion for music, she sees in him her own lost dreams. When an altercation with her daughter-in-law results in Baby having to leave the house, all she yearns for is to be young again so that she can follow her passion to do the things she always wanted to. As fate would have it, she walks into a photo studio and transforms into her 24-year-old self again, and all hell breaks loose. There's a lot to like about Oh! Baby. The manner in which the old lady behaves like a young woman in her 20s is hilarious. The writing is straightforward, the music (by Mickey J Meyer) is terrific and the acting is top-notch. There's a moment when Samantha looks at her son and leaps out of her chair to greet him, only to realise that she's not his 70-year-old mum but a different, much younger woman. Baby's conundrum is a joy to watch. Her swinging emotions, inner demons, missed opportunities, burning desire — all come to the fore. However, the film often comes across as a bit too melodramatic, especially towards the second half. A run-time of 161 minutes is a tad too long, and there are quite a few moments where the film veers away from its light-hearted nature and becomes a bit of a sobfest. Some of the emotional scenes are well shot and touching, but there are more of these scenes than necessary. Lakshmi as the older Baby is brilliant, but the way Samantha adapts her character and makes it her own is admirable. Her Rajahmundry accent is spot on and she never looks uncomfortable playing a much older character (not by appearance, mind you, but in nature). Rajendra Prasad is the film's backbone and is brilliant right through, as is Rao Ramesh, who's in his element again. Save for moments in the latter part of the film which are a tad bit melodramatic, Oh! Baby is an enjoyable ride. It's a film that has its heart in the right place and has a lot of great moments to take away from. Nandini Reddy has successfully adapted Korean classic Miss Granny, and has made it her own, and Tollywood is richer for it.

One the whole, Oh Baby is a heartwarming family drama which touches your heart completely. Beautiful emotions, good comedy, family values and romance, this film has it all. The film has a good connectivity factor which everyone can relate to easily. Samantha has upped her game to another level with this film and she will surely pull the crowds to the theaters with her career-best performance. Telugu cinema is truly churning out the best content oriented films in recent times and Oh Baby is one such film which should not be missed.

The story line is fascinating.The emotions are heart-tugging in the second half.With better story-telling, imagination and music, 'Oh Baby' would have been even more winsome.
