Oh Baby trailer: Samantha Akkenini plays younger version of Laxmi in Nandini Reddy's comedy
Oh Baby, which is slated to release on 5 July, is a remake of the 2014 South Korean film Miss Granny.
The trailer of upcoming Telugu language comedy Oh Baby was released on Wednesday. It begins with veteran actor Lakshmi at a photo studio, who after the camera flashes, magically transforms into the 24-year-old version of herself, played by Samantha Akkineni. The rest of the clip shows her readjusting to this change, reminiscing about the time that has passed.
She also finds a friend and companion in Naga Shaurya, who notices that she has an old soul. Adivi Sesh also makes a cameo role as a younger version of her husband, in the film directed by Nandini Reddy.

Suresh Babu and Sunitha Tati have produced Oh Baby, also starring Rajendra Prasad, Rao Ramesh, Urvashi, Pragati and Teja in pivotal roles.
The film is slated to release on 5 July.
The emotional beats are inconsistent and overly melodramatic, bordering on preachy in a few instances.
In an industry that insists that star kids are the next best thing, the title Most Eligible Bachelor is annoyingly declarative. But thankfully here, the title is not an assertion, but an interrogation.

"I have always romanticised shepherds crossing the mountains with their sheep as it creates a beautiful picture, but when I read this book, it took me by surprise as it revealed the real struggles that they were facing," says director Krish on adapting the book Konda Polam into a film.
