The film , starring Anand Deverakonda and Vaishnavi Chaitanya, is about growing-up pains. It is about the idiotic things we do, the idiotic mistakes we make in our teens and early twenties.
So this is the scenario. Let’s say we fall hard for someone in school, someone from the same lower-class neighbourhood that we live in. Because that is our world. That is all we know. Then, we get admission to a posh college in a posh part of the city, and our world expands. It’s not that we reject our roots, but we are just too seduced by the glitter and glamour of an aspirational lifestyle. One part of us stays true to the love from the old neighbourhood, but when a rich and attractive person shows interest, there is a small reciprocation (maybe a what-if) there, too. The three characters that play out this scenario in Sai Rajesh’s Baby are an auto driver named Anand, a college-goer named Vaishnavi, and her classmate Viraj. (The actors are Anand Deverakonda, Vaishnavi Chaitanya, and Viraj Ashwin.) The film is a sort-of love triangle, but more importantly – and interestingly – it is about growing-up pains. These late-teen/early twenties characters are not yet fully formed, so we cannot call them “flawed”. Baby is about the idiotic things we do, the idiotic mistakes we make at that age.
