This is the director BV Nandini Reddy’s fourth feature film in the last eight years. The first being Ala Modalaindi in 2011, followed by Jabardasth in 2013 and Kalyana Vaibhogame in 2016.


She has spent the last two making two web series, one of which is Gangstars featured on Amazon Prime.

The film is minting success not only in South India but in abroad too. The film collected half a million in its opening weekend in the US and is further looking to breach the million dollar club in a few days.

Samantha, who was on cloud nine took to Twitter to share her happiness about the film’s response. She wrote: "What a weekend. Thank you for all the Baby love. We are doing back flips."


Nandini Reddy has successfully adapted Korean classic Miss Granny, and has made it her own, and Tollywood is richer for it, said Suhas Yellapantula from Times of India

Separately, Ajay Mudunuri from BookMyShow wrote, After watching Oh Baby, one gets a feeling that Baby's role is tailor-made for Samantha and no one else could have pulled off such a tricky character.

The film, which also stars Naga Shaurya, Rao Ramesh and Rajendra Prasad in crucial roles, marks the second time collaboration of Samantha and Reddy after "Jabardasth".
