This specially made unit has team members like Ajay Singh Rajput (Akshay Kumar), Jai Singh Rathore (Rana Daggubati), Priya Suryavanshi (Taapsee Pannu) and Om Prakash Shukla (Anupam Kher). Plot is that Ajay Singh Rajput (Akshay Kumar) one of the members of the unit, discovers national threat and goes behind the mastermind Maulana Mohammed Rahman (Rasheed Naz), who has setup his unit in board and uses youth for spreading terrorism.
Movie Scan: Post PK and Alone, we all are seriously hoping for a sensible movie. Ugly was a cult movie that only people with a particular taste could relate to. Baby is a fast moving film which will glue you forever. This movie is a complete package where you will get to see a perfect cast, minimum melodrama, superb pace and stomach crunching humor. Screenplay will leave you speechless, and in particular there is a scene of interrogation with Jameel Khan, which is so well crafted that it will make fill the theatre with whistles and applause.
Akshay has made his best appearance till date, where he has done a perfect dialogue delivery and managed an emotional side as a matured actor. Other actors delivered a nice performance and though Kay Kay Menon has a small role, he as usual leaves an impact on audience.
Climax is again very well crafted which makes for a perfect ending. Songs and background score are crisp and simple. Movie is neither lengthy nor short.
This is definitely a must watch film of the season!
