Run Baby Run Movie Review: Who doesn’t enjoy suspenseful dramas? It’s one of the safest genres you might bet on, especially when the writer is able to draw the audience into their world and give them the impression that something sinister is about to happen. One such movie that keeps us interested the entire time is Run Baby Run, directed by Jiyen Krishnakumar and starring RJ Balaji and Aishwarya Rajesh in the key roles. It doesn’t have any compelling subplots to draw us in, but it does have a few clever turns that are exciting.
At that precise moment, a government medical college student named Sophie commits suicide (Smrithi Venkat). We are introduced to another male character (RJ Balaji) who is also preparing to commit himself before we realise what is happening. To explain how the two people are related, the author takes us back in time. On his way home, Sathya (RJ Balaji), a bank employee, unexpectedly notices a stranger female (Aishwarya Rajesh) in his car. She begs for assistance and asks to remain in his flat for a few hours until her guardian can save her. Despite his initial resistance, Sathya eventually concedes that she is in danger of losing her life and lets her in. But at the time, he had no idea that his choice would endanger his life. The very next morning, Sathya discovers Tara (the mysterious girl) dead in his residence. He chooses to dispose of the body by moving it to Senji, his hometown, on the recommendation of a buddy who works as a police officer.
The terrible events that come next compel him to learn more about this girl and the circumstances behind her murder. It also aids in his discovery of many more sinister secrets.
Unexpectedly, the second half transitions into an investigative thriller. A few twists are effective, but they are not powerful enough.
Run Baby Run’s success is not due to the plot but rather to the interesting narration style used throughout. A few surprising incidents in the early half keep us intrigued even as the writing slacks toward the finish. Additionally, the protagonist’s, a regular man, decision to pursue justice for a stranger is incredibly convincing and natural. One of the film’s main plots is the suicide of an innocent driver who later becomes one of Tara’s top suspects.
In suspense thrillers, emotions always work and are actually the only thing that advances the plot. The big reveal, though, felt like it might have been presented better. Our responses are completely unresponsive when the author reveals who the murderer is. Neither surprise nor shock fills our hearts. It would have been far more powerful if the author had forced us to travel with the murderer right away.
Given that the character is coping with several complications and issues, RJ Balaji’s portrayal of the character frequently presents as bewildered. But after a while, it becomes boring. Although not very impressive, his performance is adequate to keep the audience engaged. Aishwarya Rajesh’s charisma on film and her emotive eyes compel the audience to sympathise with her situation. Additionally, Rethika Srinivasan, who is only there for a short while, had a strong performance. Many talented performers, like Hareesh Peradi, Bhagavathi Perumal, Isha Talwar, and Vivek Prasanna, appear in the movie, however none of them were fully used.
There is nothing wrong with the film’s technical aspects. We are more able to identify with the main characters and their struggles thanks to the cinematography and music. Run Baby Run has everything a criminal thriller needs, but it’s not memorable enough to stick in our heads.
