Open Letter to NDTV for Movie Review of ‘Baby’

Dear NDTV Movie Review Team,

This is with reference to your movie review of Baby (2015) http://movies.ndtv.com/movie-reviews/baby-movie-review-1081

The movie has attracted 2 stars out of 5.

If we want to consider religion in reviewing the movie and If we assume you are the most secular (and hence unpaid) media of the lot, then also it does not make any sense because of the following reasons:-

1. Baby is not an anti-Muslim movie or even anti-Pakistan movie. It is shown that the terrorists are there on both the sides.

2. The head of the Indian secret agency is played by Danny Denzongpa as Feroze Ali Khan.

3. There is also a mention of Hindu extremism in Gujarat riots.

So lets take religion out from the review (and hence lets also ignore your generous 5 star rating to PK)

The movie is entertaining & has no songs. All the actors have done a good(if not the best) job. Script is not exceptionally brilliant as ‘A Wednesday’ but manages to keep the audience curious.

You may have your own evaluation of movies and you have all rights to express it. I am not a fan of Akshay Kumar to justify this. Let us assume that your rating is justified.

However, I really wonder what made you give 2.5 stars to Kick (Salman Khan) or 3 stars to Players (Abhishek Bacchan, Boby Deol, Sonam Kapoor etc). How were they successful in earning your 0.5 or 1 star?

There are many such examples listed below.

1. Kick (Salman Khan) -> 2.5 Stars

2. Main Tera Heo -> 2.5 Stars

3. Dhoom 3 -> 3 Stars (Aamir Khan fans can ignore this)

4. Bullet Raja -> 4 Stars (Though the Director has made good movies, but 4 stars for this? )

5. Besharam -> 2.5 Stars (Really? )

6. Rabba Mein Kya Karu -> 3 Stars (Why ?)

7. Shortcut Romeo -> 3 Stars

8. Nautanki Sala -> 3 Stars

9. Jayantabhai ki Luv Story -> 2.5 Stars

10. Rush (Emran Hashmi) -> 3 Stars

11. Ek Tha Tiger -> 3.5 Stars (Similar story line. What made you give this? )

12. Tezz (Anil Kapoor) -> 3 Stars

13. Bitto Boss -> 3 Stars

14. Houseful 2 -> 3 Stars

15. Agent Vinod -> 3.5 Stars (This is a joke right? )

16. Players (Abhishek Bacchan, Bobby Deol) -> 3 Stars

17. Ra.One -> 3 Stars (SRK fans can ignore this)

18. Yamla Pagla Deewana -> 2.5 Stars (Some may not agree on this)

Eagerly waiting for your reply

Warm Regards,
