Oh! Baby is a 2019 Indian Telugu-language fantasy comedy-drama film directed by B. V. Nandini Reddy and produced by Suresh Productions and People's Media Factory. The film stars Samantha Akkineni in the lead role, with Naga Shaurya, Lakshmi, Rajendra Prasad, Rao Ramesh, and Urvashi in supporting roles. The film is an official remake of the South Korean film Miss Granny (2014).
The film revolves around the life of a 70-year-old woman named Savitri, who is fed up with her mundane life and constant clashes with her family members. She wishes to be young again and relive her life once more. One day, she visits a photo studio where she encounters a photographer who tells her about a magical herbal medicine that can transform her into a 20-year-old girl. Savitri quickly decides to take the medicine, and the rest of the film follows her journey as she navigates through her new life.
The film opens with Savitri, an old woman who is often ignored and belittled by her family. Her son and daughter-in-law want her to move into an old age home, but Savitri refuses to do so. One day, she visits a photo studio where she comes across a photographer who offers to take her picture. After the photo session, Savitri accidentally drinks a magical potion, which transforms her into a 20-year-old girl named Swathi.
As Swathi, Savitri gets to relive her youth and pursue her dreams. She joins a music band with the help of her grandson and develops a close bond with them. She also meets a young man named Vikram, who falls in love with her. However, Savitri's happiness is short-lived as the effects of the potion start wearing off, and she has to find a way to return to her old self before it's too late.
The film beautifully portrays the transformation of Savitri into Swathi, and Samantha Akkineni delivers a stunning performance in both the roles. The chemistry between Naga Shaurya and Samantha is also commendable. The film also tackles themes of ageism, family dynamics, and pursuing one's dreams, making it a heartwarming and relatable story for all age groups.
The supporting cast, including Lakshmi, Rajendra Prasad, Rao Ramesh, and Urvashi, also delivers exceptional performances and adds depth to the narrative. The music by Mickey J Meyer is another highlight of the film, with foot-tapping numbers like "Swathi Muthyam" and "Changu Bhala" being popular among the audience.
Overall, Oh! Baby is a refreshing and feel-good film that will leave the audience with a smile on their face. The film's message of cherishing one's life and pursuing one's dreams is conveyed beautifully through the story and characters. B. V. Nandini Reddy's direction and Samantha Akkineni's performance make this film a must-watch for all movie lovers.
