  • Being in Core section is a Huge win win situation…..I heard tht Their library have 5 sections and core being the best one…..Baby neverthless was among the Best films that came out of bollywood…….Akshay Kumar Was superb…..Hope Airlift joins the library too

  • so happy for whole baby team..
    n dissapointed at same time.. whole india watched pk n then baby released with no chartbusters…. still done gud job but it deserved atleast 140 cr….

  • Now thats what i call a gr8 news…..!! …
    And Mrx has shocked me….although it was not promoted much….but negative hateful reviews of making personal jabs at persons related to it was shocking…

    Everybody waiting for avengers ….. Bad release …..

    Now gabbar music carrying bad response….. I don’t think gabbar will get good opening at multiplex….!.. As a true-ist ….i think gabbar will carry negatice review..

    But i m sure Akki will wake-up n start promotions now….!! … In this times, Promotions is very necessary for a gud initial…films like mrx has got low visiblity ….

    All d best akki .. Start promotions…
    And cong8rts for baby…..!

    hey guys, I just finished my entrance exams and I’m back.
    Well, in my absence, there were many movie trailers released but i posted today DDD’s trailer review and I promise you guys from now on I will be update 24/7.
    By The Way, I’m busy right now writing on my enterence exams review so Stay tuned to Nipun for all movie and trailer review updates.

  • Still i don’t know whether it is prestigious or not coz R..rajkumar n hny were also selected for it.
    So i am not going to shout n dance on this!

  • Hardcore promotions lacked in baby… But gud content helped to rock baby ….!! ..

    I m sure hardcore promotions in last 10 days will make Gabbar blockbuster…..!! ..

    Waitin for gabbar…. Blockbuster on 1may

  • pk affected baby..
    dhoom 3 affected jay ho. .
    people in india dnt go to watch amovie evry now n then… 1 more problm with both films is movie uploaded on intrnet removed nuploaded again from dubai…
    why government do nthing about it…. all 200 cr movies nw will be 300 easily if no 1 get to watch them on mobile n laptops do easily…movies will run 4-5 weeks… STOP PYRACY

  • Umm.. R Rajkumar ,Youngistaan and HNY also belong to this Library ! Isn’t it?
    Baby is a much better film though!

    My Best films of 1st Quarter of 2015:

    1. Badlapur
    2. Dum Laga Ke Haisha
    3. NH10
    4. Baby
    5. Dolly ki doli

  • How can a movies like R..Rajkumar and Happy New Year get in the Oscar Library while a movie like Queen,Shahid and PK not ? It makes no sense. I don’t know what they base on it but it seems to me It’s a joke. Don’t be surprised if Diwale or Bombay Velvet’s screen plays shortlisted next year.

  • Oscar library? Oh yes. So now it is proved
    Baby= HNY= R.. Rajkumar = Slumdog Millionaire= Argo = Titanic= The Godfather

  • Wow congratulations akki!
    Just becoz a movie becomes successful, it doesn’t really mean that they should make a sequel to it.
    Do not make baby 2 . Make sth new!
    akki biggest problem is that every year he makes south remakes like ” sallu ” .
    How long will u continue making south remakes??? Quit south remakes.
    Akki used to have great movies! But now he has done almost all south remakes like sallu. Shame on those who decieve people and making remakes! I hate it ….

  • Baby is the best film of the year so far..much better than films released in previous couple of years also..

  • A lungiwala barked too much on remakes. He might suffering from long term memory loss thats why he forgot king’s long list of remakes(official & unofficial)…see a few official remakes of king…
    1. Devdas
    2. Don
    3. OSO
    4. Ra One(unofficial).

  • Manipulative critique, yeah untill the death of anupama aunty and rajive chacha you wont be the best critik.

  • congrats akki
    i would suggest if u wanna continue doing 4 movies every year…
    u shd do like this…one being a critically acclaimed patriotic kinda movie
    others should be an out n out masala entertainer…3rd should cater to the multiplex audience based on lives n styles of the metros(like brothers)

  • on the 4th one..i will leave it you…
    u may experiment… it can be a comedy dramedy romcom(loved your namaste london)
