Oh Baby Movie Review / Analysis
What can I say? There are female actors and there’s Samantha. She’s a class apart and what makes her stand out from the rest is the choice of her roles. The diversity in the movie genres she has picked so far, exhibiting versatility in getting into the skin of each character, spontaneous dialogue delivery to lend a natural touch to the characters she plays…Samantha is all this and more. With each movie, she is a revelation. Samantha has come a long way from Ye Maaya Chesav and raring to go. The movie is well adapted and certain things changed to make it palatable to the Telugu audience. The story is a joy ride and a few scenes are a breeze while at some points it gets intense but of course, integral to the plot. Director Nandini Reddy has done a splendid job of executing a foreign script by making it appealing to the local moviebuffs. Naga Shaurya can do better. Rajendra Prasad, Rao Ramesh and Lakshmi need no introduction when it comes to their performances. They always rock.
