Movie Review:Heyy Baby
Starring: Akshay Kumar, Vidya Balan, Fardeen Khan, Riteish Deshmukh
Director: Sajid Khan
Music Directors: Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy
The funnyman of television, Sajid Khan, makes his directorial debut, aptly enough with a comedy. Okay, so Heyy Babyy is inspired by the 1987 hit Three Men and a Baby (which in turn was inspired by a 1985 French movie), but that's about it. Sajid's baby, which combines humor and emotion with �lan, is very much his own.
Three lecherous bachelors—Aroush, Tanmay and Ali (Akshay, Riteish and Fardeen)—are having a whale of a time in Sydney, when one fine day their life changes. A dimpled darling shows up at their doorstep. The guys know nothing about babies but Angel soon works her charm on them and after the initial hiccups, the three of them are transformed into loving, caring fathers. But good things don't last forever: their world is shattered when the mother (Vidya Balan) turns up one day to take her baby back. But that's not the end?
The film works mainly because of the performances. Akshay is terrific, not only in the comedy track, but in the emotional bits too. Fardeen and Riteish lend him great support, especially Riteish who attempts a take on Piramal Tripathi, the Hindi-speaking botanist of Hrishikesh Mukherjee's classic Chupke Chupke. But the real scene-stealer is Vidya Balan who pitches in with a fantastic act as the broken-hearted woman, out to avenge her betrayal.
Music by Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy is great, with a mix of peppy and melodious numbers. Cinematography is excellent too.
So go watch Heyy Babyy— it's a well-made, wholesome movie with loads of entertainment.
