Actor R J Balaji, known for his comedy roles has boldly played the protagonist in this crime thriller film. His lack of acting skills was apparent in this film, but the director Jiyen Krishnakumar‘s different narrative style saves the day. Aishwarya Rajesh, Isha Talwar, and Radhika Sarathkumar have been given limited roles. The movie gets a Raw rating from Mangoidiots.
What should’ve been a nailbiting thriller, meanders its way due to a lengthy first half. The film starts with the crime and then travels into a flashback. This style gets us, the audience curious, but the absence of character introductions even in the second half robs us of our involvement. A car ride and then a taxi ride by the hero from Chengelpet to Gingee was familiar, ran too long and was unrealistic. The second half of the film was fast-paced, but the climax and the culprit were unimpressive.
For a catchy title Run Baby Run, I was expecting a cat ‘n’ mouse chase between the hero and the bad guys, but what we get are lukewarm threats.
