Critics Review


Falls Short of Winning!

Though it doesn�t create a high-level investment, the first hour manages to engage well with an usual thriller genre yet neat flow. But the later half is a complete bummer in the name of showing the truth to the world with vague storytelling.(more)

RJ Balaji delivers an effective thriller with good twists

Balaji, who has always been self-aware about his limitations as an actor, plays his part competently. It�s a believable performance of an ordinary guy stuck in an extraordinary situation and the story follows his efforts to free himself. Any other actor in his shoes would�ve expected his character to turn heroic at some point but thankfully RJ Balaji doesn�t fall in that image trap. The film definitely needed a better antagonist and a stronger twist but that�s just a minor grouse in an otherwise mostly compelling thriller. The supporting cast does a decent job in playing their respective parts fittingly.(more)

RJ Balaji's effective crime mystery loses steam in the second half

Then there are the contrivances that make it a lot easier for the hero. It all looks hurried. The huge issue with Run Baby Run is the lack of a solid motive and a stronger antagonist. The threat which was initially personal becomes a social issue. It is time heroes and filmmakers realise they need not always save the world. Sometimes saving a decent film from becoming a mediocre affair is good enough.(more)

An effective thriller that engages us in parts

The technical aspects of the film have nothing to complain about. Both cinematography and music help us to connect with the central characters and their conflicts. Run Baby Run has all the ingredients that a crime thriller requires but is not powerful enough to linger in our minds.(more)
