It is a very rare occasion that a person gets a chance to produce the Mammootty and Mohanlal movies simultaneously and releasing them at the same occasion. Milan Jaleel is the lucky man to produce the two mega projects 'Thappana' and 'Run Babby Run'. The new festival release by Mohanlal came on the Thiruvonam day. The title of the movie 'Run Babby Run' looks like a familiar one, yes, an inspiration from the notable Hollywood flick 'Run Lola Run', though there is no similarities in the story line.
'Run Babby Run' is directed by the super senior director in the field, Joshi. The malayalee 'Mynaa' girl Amala Paul is the heroine. 'Aakashathinte Niram' was her previous release. It has got script written by Sachi, this is his first independent work after the hit writers duo Sachi - Sethu got split. Sethu gave a commercial hit through 'Mallu Singh', now its time for his former partner to ring the bell. The cinematography is handled by R.D.Rajasekhar. 'Mazhaneer Thullikal...' fame Ratheesh Vega has handled the music.
Venu (Mohanlal) is a reputed cameraman working for an international media organization. He has reached Kerala after five years to give his verdict for a case happened in the past. As a part of the assignment, he has agreed to cover a news report for his friend (Biju Menon). He meets Renuka (Amala Paul), the executive editor of a news channel, who was having a good relationship with him in the past. Once again, Venu and Renuka works for an assignment, which later leads to some unexpected happenings.
The movie has got an youthful and thrilling presentation by the hit maker director Joshi, accompanied by an attractive show by Mohanlal. Amala Paul gave a good company. Script writer Sachi's work is ok, the dialogues in the beginning portions were not so impressive, but later it picked up the right slot. How ever, the movie projects the tug of war happening between the different media groups and the tricks done by them, for their existence. The story has got an action environment, with the story revolving around the small quarreling happening between the hero and heroine, at times. The movie is made in the style of the 'Robinhood', that came in the combination of the same director and writer.
R.D.Rajasekhar's brilliant cinematography work, helps to keep the real mood. New comer Shyam Sasidharan gave a good job as the editor. 'Aattumanal...' song will be a hit, as it is sung by Mohanlal. It is visualized in the pattern of tamil songs, choreography is by Brinda. Ratheesh Vega's bg score goes with the mood. Some better action sequences are given by Palaniraj and Anal Arasu.
