Review By : Unni R Nair/ Kerala9.com

I won’t say I didn’t like ‘Run Babby Run’. But I would definitely have liked it a bit more if it had been a bit more pacy and loud. I would have liked it a bit more if at least a couple of characters had been worked out in a better way. Still, I won’t say I didn’t like ‘Run Babby Run’, director Joshiy’s Onam offering.

Venu (Mohanlal) is a television cameraman of international repute and is known as ‘Reuters’ Venu. Having spent a few years out of Kerala, he is back on an assignment. He comes face to face with Renu (Amala Paul), his former lover. They were all set to get married, a few years back. On the eve of their wedding something wrong happened and Venu decided he has nothing to do with Renu. They had together covered a scam involving industrialist Rajan Kartha (Siddique) and senior politician Bharathan Pillai (Saikumar) for the new television channel to be launched by their friend Rishi (Biju Menon), but immediately after that things went totally wrong and it all ended up in Venu and Renu parting ways. Now, Venu is back in Kerala and he comes face to face with Renu.

Rishi’s channel NBI is now launched and struggling. Renu works with another channel, Bharath TV. Venu, who is staying with Rishi, gets an offer to do a special task. He is informed that a murder is likely to take place at the behest of Bharathan Pillai. He has to cover the murder, but do nothing to prevent it as it’s inevitable. He’d be accompanied by a reporter too, he is said. The reporter turns out to be none other than Renu. Venu doesn’t want to accept it, but since he has committed and has been let into the secret information, he has to go on with it. From there develops the rest of the story.

There are many situations that may appear unrealistic. There are things that seem to be handled in a rather silly manner, like for example Venu’s behaviour with Renu after they part and later come face to face. We begin to doubt if it was really a break-up or just a pretension. He seems to behave rather funny and childish. Well, that doesn’t affect the flow of the whole thing.

The film, on the whole, is not bad. It has nothing new or extraordinary to offer, but the plot that is at hand has been deftly executed. Most of the twists are predictable, but still we’d like seeing it. I just felt that if characters like those played by Biju Menon, Shammi Thilakan, Vijayaraghavan etc were a bit more worked on, the film could have been better.

As of now, I’d say go watch Run Babby Run if you don’t mind watching a predictable action flick and also for Mohanlal and Amala Paul and Joshiy and writer Sachy. This is what I expected out of this Joshiy-Sachy-Mohanlal film and I feel this could turn out to be a box office hit.

Performance 

Mohanlal is good; he does full justice to his role. Amala Paul plays her part convincingly. Biju Menon, Saikumar, Siddique and all others fit into their respective roles perfectly well.

Technical aspects

The technicians- cinematographer R.D.Rajashekhar, art-director Joseph Nellickal, editor Shyam Sasidharan etc have rendered full support to director Joshiy in making the film. They all have done their work perfectly well.

Music

Ratheesh Vega has provided perfect background score, as suits the theme and the tempo of the film. The lone song, rendered by Mohanlal is just so so and may not appeal even to die-hard fans.

Script

Sachy, of the Sachy-Sethu duo, has done a good job of the script. Still, he could have handled the characterization in a better way. There is nothing extraordinary as regards characters or characterization. He has balanced the lead players, but when it comes to the other characters, most of them seem mere props. There could have been one character like Narain’s in ‘Robinhood’, which would have worked out better. The film should also have been a bit more pacy.

Direction

Joshiy is in full control. As usual, he has done full justice to the subject at hand and has delivered perfectly well.

Verdict– Predictable but watchable thriller, typical Joshiy film.

Rating: 3/5

    MOHANLAL DOING A CHANNEL REPORTE.

    TRUELY ITS AN AVERAGE SUBJECT.
    UGLY DIALOUGE DULL FACES .SAME VILLANS -SIDDIQ &SAIKUMAR.
    HIDDEN CAMERA…. HIDDEN CAMERA……
    AT LAST ……HIDDEN CAMERA RALLY……………WHATS GOING ON!!!!!!

  13. Lal acting and singing is very nice
    flim super hit
    climax is excellent( no word to say about climax) perfect end

  14. Dear Friends,
    First you see the film & submit the real comment. It is Excellent Entertainer……Only Mohanlal can do these type of characters when compared to the other actors of his age…he is charm and romantic…LALETTA….KALAKKEETO!!!

  15. A Super HIT Movie… ITs going to be a SUPER DUPER hit.
    Many Idiots who doesn’t know what is move has given comments like “WASTE, Bullshit” etc. For them one word -> don’t wantch it.
    And try to bring a replacement actor instead of the Great Mohanlal. Tell me all, who can do such ROLES(Romantic, fun, decent)in souch Indian movies in this age??
    This MOVIE is SUPER HIT. All malayalees will accept with both hands.
    In this generation, if youth is not watching and encouraging the movies, all industry would have been cllapsed by now.
    hats off to Joshi and Mohanlal, and each crew of the film.
    The movie did not disappoint the viewers at all. Script, story, climax everything was very good, And really suspense thriller. In the second half, you’ll not be able to predict anything.

    @Mammootty fans=>I can’t even think about Mamootty acting such kind of roles like Lalettan did n this movie. Some dialogues and Romantic scenes ONLY he can DO it in this Age. IT doesn’t showany artificality.

    Again, signing off from Kerals9,
    Cameraman Venuvinodoppam Renuka.

  16. Flood film. I likeddd. Kutam parayunna thappana fanseee thatril poyi nokkuu…. Thapana eecha aatti erikkunnathu kaanamm.

  18. ഞാനൊരു മലയാളിയാ കേട്ടോ … ബാംഗ്ലൂരില്‍ weekends കിട്ടുമ്പോള്‍ ഒരു മൂവി കാണുന്ന പതിവുണ്ട് , ഇന്നലെ അടുത്തുള്ള മുല്ടിപ്ലെക്സില്‍ റണ്‍ ബേബി റണ്‍ കളിക്കുന്നു എന്നറിഞ്ഞു പോകാന്‍ ഒരുങ്ങി , എന്നാല്‍ ഫേസ് ബൂകിലെ പല പല പോസ്റ്റുകള്‍ കണ്ടപ്പോള്‍ ഇന്നലെ ഞാന്‍ പടത്തിനു കേറിയില്ല , പകരം അക്ഷയ് കുമാറിന്റെ ജോക്കര്‍ എന്നാ ഫില്മിഞ്ഞു കയറി (250 പോയത് മിച്ചം )
    ഇന്ന് രണ്ടും കല്പിച്ചു ഇതിനു കയറി , സത്യം പറയാമല്ലോ വളരെ നന്നായിട്ടുണ്ട് , ഉണ്ണി യുമായി പൂര്‍ണമായും ഞാന്‍ യോജിക്കുന്നു (ഞാന്‍ 5 ഇല്‍ 4 കൊടുക്കും , ) പക്ഷെ ഫാമിലി പ്രേക്ഷകര്‍ സ്വീകരിക്കുമോ എന്നറിയില്ല , ചില ഡയലോഗ് അതിര് കവിഞ്ഞോ എന്നൊരു സംശയം (എനികിഷ്ട്ടപെട്ടു, നമ്മ യുവാക്കാള്ളല്ലേ ടീമേ ).

There is no reality even in reality shows. What is ur qualification to criticise this film? This is a variety film. Did u expect a reality show when going to watch this movie?
