Samantha’a Oh Baby Movie Review / Analysis

Samantha with each and every film has upped her game. Her movies of late from Ranagsthalam to Super Deluxe among others has only proved the acting prowess she has. And so is with Oh Baby. Samantha gets into the skin of her character and mesmerises with her charm and dialogue delivery in every frame. The film is has been very well adaptable to suit the Telugu nativity. It is a complete joy ride and at times it’s breezy packed with eery emtila.. The climax scene will leave you with a heavy heart and there’s a suspense which we don’t want to reveal making it a spoiler. Naga Shaurya could have done better, that said he was fine. Rajendra Prasad, Rao Ramesh and Lakshmi were perfect in their roles.




Sluggish second half

Oh Baby is for all the age groups. Certainly not miss film. Make sure to visit the other nd grab your popcorn to have a good weekend.
