country, who actually don’t die for the country but live for the country so
that no one can harm our country. It is Neeraj Pandey’s film (Wednesday fame). Though
the name of the movie is ‘baby’ it is not at all a child’s game. Another
brilliant movie from Neeraj Pandey.
special operations wing of commandoes, which is running in its trial period of
5 years with the name Baby. They had picked up 12 people from paramilitary
forces. They could avert lots of terrorist attacks. Baby is the story of their
narration. Akshay (Ajay) is in a foreign land trying to get one of his peers
saved from the anti-social elements. On knowing that another peer had betrayed
them, he extracts confessions from him and averts a terrorist attack at DLF Promenade
mall in Delhi. Then the effort starts to reach to the master mind behind ‘all the
Diwali’ planned. There enters into the scene Kay Kay Menon, who is in the jail
as a suspect in one of the bomb blast, but manages to flee with the support of
his people. It is interesting to see, how Akshay with his team under the
command of Danny reaches the master-mind. Tapasee is part of his team for part
of the project. The second half of the movie is more intriguing than the first
half where Anupam Kher (Shuklaji) and Rana Dagubatti join Akshay for the sequences
shot in the desert escapades of Abudhabi.

the role of Akshay’s wife. As per the protocol, Akshay can’t even share hois

Ashfaq and an associate of Akshay in Abudhabi has done a wonderful and
especially in the Abudhabi scenes, was just superb, added lot of suspense to
non-biased and non-judgmental approach towards handling this movie. Although, certain
scenes are there which raised a question mark in me, whether it is possible to
conduct secret operations to this extent where these secret agents enter into
another country, extract confessions and leads from suspects etc. May be,
secret agents get the right to work in such fashion also. I am not making a
comment on it, just trying to highlight the same.
need a special mention and highlight is: Danny tells a senior minister in the
beginning of the film that the government ought to win the confidence of Muslim
community is India, for Pakistan is taking advantage of the community’s sense
of alienation within India. In another scene, Akshay during his interrogation
of an ISI agent Taufeek, Taufeek says that he writes ‘MUSALMAN’ in all caps in
religion column. Responding to that Akshay tells him his story of defending a
Muslim family during Gujarat Riots and why he puts ‘INDIAN’ in the religion column
in all the forms that he fills. Neeraj Pandey has definitely communicated this
loud and clear that terrorists don’t have a religion and no particular community
ought to be associated with terrorism.
operations, Danny keeps telling the senior minister in front of Akshay that if
something goes unfavourable, Akshay knows that India will disown him. So, once
the minister asks Danny (not in front of Akshay), how would this impact Akshay.
Danny says: Mil jate hain sar aise kuch officers, jo desh ke liye marna nahi
chahte, but jinda rahna chahte hain taki desh ka koi kuch bigaad na sake.
