One of the most delightfully entertaining films that I watched recently is Oh!Baby which has Samantha Akkineni in the lead and boy! does she not own it!
Reminiscent of 13 going on 30 but standing on its own two feet proudly, the film has erstwhile ‘Julie’ fame actress Lakshmy whose younger self is played with great finesse by Samantha as Swathi.
The story and its depiction on the big screen, ensures that it is a total roller coaster of emotions with a totally charming Samantha leaving the audience in splits of laughter, empathy and even a fair share of teardrops.
Rajendra Prasad, Lakshmy and Samantha clearly hold the fort and your total attention in the movie.
When was the last time I enjoyed a Telugu movie this much! That looks sometime far in history.
Anyways, Oh! Baby is not a movie to miss for sure.
What the movie does is to hold a candle to the unaccomplished dreams and aspirations of the older generations!
Seriously,when I see my mom actively and enthusiastically participating and preparing for her Akshara Shloka classes and events, I see in her the child that would have topped the class or pursued higher studies if only her parents had thought it worthwhile to allow the girls in the house to study as they did with the boys!
