Director BV Nandini Reddy's Telugu movie Oh Baby starring Samantha Akkineni, Naga Shaurya, Lakshmi and Rajendra Prasad, has received positive review and rating.
Oh Baby is a fantasy comedy film, which is an official remake of the South Korean film Miss Granny. Nandini Reddy has written the screenplay for the movie, which is produced by D Suresh Babu, Sunitha Tati, TG Vishwa Prasad, Hyunwoo Thomas Kim under the banners Suresh Productions, People's Media Factory Guru Films, Kross Pictures.
It has received a U certificate from the censor board and its runtime is 2.41 hours.
Oh Baby story: The movie is about a 70-year-old Savitri/Baby (Lakshmi), who is foul-mouthed, stubborn, controlling and shameless lady and she has a difficult relationship with her daughter-in-law. She decides to take the last photo of her life. But she finds herself transported in the body of a 20-year-old girl (Samantha) when she comes out of the studio. How she embarks on a quest for happiness forms the crux of the movie.
Analysis: Oh Baby has an interesting premise and Nandini Reddy has made some minor changes to the original script to suit the taste of the Telugu filmgoers. The first half is quite entertaining and some funny scenes keep you engrossed in the narration. The second half is high on the emotional quotient and lesser entertaining said the audience.
Performances: Samantha Akkineni carries the weight of the movie on her shoulders and her presence holds the film together. Her performance is undoubtedly the highlight of the flick. Lakshmi, Naga Shaurya, Rajendra Prasad, Jagapathi Babu, Rao Ramesh, Teja Sajja and Pragathi have done equally well and their performance is also among the things to look out for, say the viewers.
Technical: Oh Baby has amazing production values and beautiful picturisation and locations, songs and background score and punch dialogues are the attractions on the technical front, the audience added.

#OhBaby Interval: Funmaxx. After an emotional start, the film turns into an all-out comedy with @Samanthaprabhu2's entry. Sam simply steals the show with her incredible comic timing and adorable histrionics! #OhBaby: Such a delightful film. Right from the start, it has both the comedy and the emotional connect in the right proportions, entertaining you all the way. Easily one of the best performances from @Samanthaprabhu2, who rules the roost as the super cute Swathi!
#OhBaby first half - so far so good. @Samanthaprabhu2 totally owns the film and kick starts the hilarious ride from the word go. Veteran actress #Lakshmi is super impressive in the first 15-20mins. Blockbuster written all over, waiting for the second half. #OhBaby - @Samanthaprabhu2 effortlessly gets into the shoes of #Lakshmi (perfect body language, dialogue delivery and mannerisms). Among all the current generation actors, she is easily the best when it comes to comedy. Impeccable comic sense and timing! #OhBaby -⭐⭐⭐1/2 Easily the career best performance of @Samanthaprabhu2. A superb feel-good film with a hilarious first half and emotional second half. Blockbuster written all over. Loved it! #OhBaby - The best thing happened to the film after @Samanthaprabhu2 is @nandureddy4u , I'm not sure whether a male director could've handled the poignant feminine angled in the film. Certain films are meant to be performed and directed by female filmmakers, this is one such film #OhBaby - it's not easy for a young actress like @Samanthaprabhu2 to replicate the body language and mannerisms of Lakshmi Garu without mimicking. She brings so much originality to the character, nailed it!
#OhBaby is yet another feather in the queen's crown ❤️ A well-rounded film that is super enjoyable!! @Samanthaprabhu2 is absolute gorgeous and carries this role with perfection Looks like a super duper hit is on the cards. Congrats to the whole team!

#OhBaby (Telugu) - Interval - The fantasy element is fun and a few comedy moments are enjoyable. The situations are written neatly, but not delivered convincingly on screen. @Samanthaprabhu2 is cute, but sadly overacts at some places. 'Watchable' so far. #OhBabyFromToday #OhBaby (Telugu) - 2.5/ 5. An exciting idea that offers some fun in the first hour, liked the climax surprise. But with a good screenplay, it could have been a lot better. Usual cliches act as the spoilsport. Good performance by @Samanthaprabhu2.

It's a gloomy day in Hyderabad...but there is plenty of warmth and sunshine in every frame of #OhBaby. @Samanthaprabhu2 is astounding. And @nandureddy4u reminds you what we have in our lives and what we miss - hope and love. Go watch the film and soak it all in.
#OhBaby what a beautiful movie. BEST in recent times. Samantha and Teja's performances are very good. Special mention to writing.
#OhBaby - (4/5) @Samanthaprabhu2 Steal the show.. Scenes between RajendraPrasad and Samantha were too gooood... Surprise for Akkineni Fans at the end.... Emotional Scenes and Climax Scenes are too good..

There should be no doubt in saying that Oh Baby rides entirely on @Samanthaprabhu2 star power. She carries the weight of the movie on her shoulders. When we speak of the heroine-oriented films, usually, they are restricted to specific terrain. #OhBaby is special among all U look stunning @Samanthaprabhu2 ! U nailed it ! U made us cry nd laugh swathi! . I just really huged my mum after watching #ohBaby with tears!☺ It's completely one women show that's our sam!. Tq for giving us such a memorable movie! This is top! @nandureddy4u .
Unique story of a women's life, stages and desires missed out by our grandparents. What a beautiful thought #NandiniReddy and Sam no one cud hv pulled this off like you. Perfect manarism and body language @Samanthaprabhu2 another gem to ur hat❤️❤️❤️ loved the movie❤️❤️ #OhBaby
